Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number).

The aperture ring is the movable ring on the lens closest to the camera body. It will typically have numbers like 2.8, 4, 5.6, 8, 11, and so on. The largest f/number will typically be 16, 22, or 32.

It does snap on. If it doesn't then you probably broke it trying to get it off the old door.

Yes, it can be done. Kodak did it to create the 14n and Fujifilm did it to create the S2. It probably cost them millions of dollars in R&D to do it, and the resulting cameras cost in the thousands.

If you want to do it yourself, it's not going to be easy or cheap. Unless you can make the chips yourself, you'd have to cannibalize another digital camera. Then you'd have to design the internal layout, position the parts properly, and so forth.

It would be a lot cheaper and easier to just buy a new D3200 or D5200, or a used D80 or D90.

If you are getting an error message, check the lens to see if it is seated properly, and check the little switch at the bottom of the lens to see if it is switched up.

Having gone over half a year without a response to my query, I assume it was simply a matter of batteries.

Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number). You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring.

According to the manual, the only time the frame counter blinks, is when the back is open or partially open when attempting to rewind film. Push on the back to be sure it's properly snapped closed to see if that solves the issue.

You have a weak capacitor in the winding circuit
It would be best to find another one like it on Ebay or get another camera altogether for the cost to repair yours outweighs the cost of a new one

You can download the manual for your Nikon N80. Do a web search for "download manual nikon n80" (with or without the quotes).

Sounds to me as if the aperture is stopped down. It should normally be fully open except during an exposure, to allow viewing at full aperture. Whether it is stuck or whether you have just set the stop-down lock manually I cannot tell from here. If you turn the aperture ring to the fully open end and it is still shut down, then it is stuck. This typically happens when the blades get a bit of oil on them. It can be fixed, but it isn't really a DIY job.

With digital camera pretty well taking over from the film cameras a lot of film cameras just sit and the batteries become corroded which leaves a nasty white power in the battery compartment. Your camera takes two CR123A batteries these need to be in the correct orientation or it just won't work.
Look down into the battery compartment and make sure the contacts are clean and without corrosion. I've used lens cleaner on a cotton swab to get down in there and clean it off, don't get it dripping wet just moisten the swab a bit at a time. When there is a badly corroded point then a small bit of sand paper taped to the end of a pencil has worked for me in cleaning up the bad terminal.
Hopefully you don't need to go through the cleaning process and it's just that you have the batteries in incorrectly.

Confirm tht DX shows in LCD. If not then press and hold shift button then press ISO so "DX" appears.Open Camera Back. Insert film cartridge, pull film leader out to right and align with red index mark (inside film chamber on right). Make sure there is no slack in leader.Close camera back until lock release snaps closed. Fully depress shutter until film advances to first frame.
Confirm " 1" and film transport show in LCD. If Film is not loaded correctly, "ERR" show on LCD. Open cack and reload film.
