It seems that other have experienced the same problem, and so have I. I've checked around and the problem seems to be a losse screw inside the lens. I just hope Nikon take action and make sure everyone get this problem sorted for free. It is bad manufacturing. Ask Nikon and make them more aware of this problem.

    There is a quick fix for this problem. If you remove the rubber zoom ring you will gain access to the screw that causes the lens to jam. It is a bit tricky to reasemble the lens but manged to do it woth som patience.

I have a Nikon D80 that reads "ERR", won't take photos, but shutter still fires. I tried cleaning the contacts, and still I get the ER msg. Help?


Does your lens have a diafragm ring, A ring with numbers on it like 22 16 11 8 5.6 3.5. Set this ring to the maximum. I hope this helps.

The qual/zoom button on my nikon D80 is stuck or jammed and I can't get it released


Hi Guest, if the buttons themselves are depressed and cannot bounce out as the other buttons do you could try to use a super thin jewelers flat screw driver to see if you can get it to pop out. A few things going on here, grit came between the button and the body or, the item that pushes the button to its return state has lost its resiliency. If it is because of loss of resiliency the camera must go in for repairs and a good CLA.

Hi, can tell to me why my 18-200 af vr lenss go


The "problem" is that the lens has a zoom creep issue. If you are the original purchaser, and the lens is under 5 years old, you may want to contact Nikon repair facilites in Melville or El Segundo to have it checked out.
Some users on forums have claimed that Nikon fixed the plastics ring that contribute to the zoom creep. Apparently, using a rubber band around the zoom ring will minimize the problem.
Hope this helps,
Andrew

Err with f4 and r11 display


If your lens has an aperture ring, do note that most of these lenses require the ring to be locked at a certain position for it to work. In the course of using the lens, you may have accidentally unlocked the aperture ring and moved it out of position. This is a common problem.

To fix this error, try this:

1. Turn off camera
2. Turn the aperture ring clockwise and then lock it
3. Turn on the camera

If you still encounter the same problem, repeat the same steps but turn the aperture ring counter-clockwise. Hope this helps.

Lens keeps getting stuck/needs a good tug to zoom past 25 HELP!


Hi Rachael_amor, If the lens will not zoom on the camera will it off the camera? If not then it has some grit, dirt, and the like in the lens. You could attempt to vacuum around the zoom however, I suspect it will need to go in to Nikon. That lens is not well weather sealed, it is a inexpensive consumer lens.

Nikon D80 error


The CPU contacts on the lens can sometimes get dirty and they can be cleaned by gently rubbing them with the eraser end of a pencil.   Be very careful to not get any of the eraser rubbings into the lens.   Also, when handling a lens, don't touch these contacts, as the sweat from our hands is not good on the metal.
