Do you mean the aperture ring on the lens? That needs to be locked at the smallest aperture (largest F/number). You can change the aperture using the command wheels.

I receive a Err on the display shutter snaps but no picture takes place. I have found out that if I try to take a pitcher let the shutter snap and then push the the apature botton i think it is on the...

Hi Jeff - The manual describes "Err" as a general error, a "Camera malfunction" and says "If error persists, consult with Nikon-authorized service representative." (Bottom of page 132 in the english version of the manual.)

Some folks have had mixed results with removing / mounting the lens once or twice, charging the battery and cleaning the contacts of both the lens and camera body's lens opening. More odten than not though - the camera has to go back to Nikon for repair. it appears that the shutter is replaced and things go back to working just fine again.

I would contact Nikon directly to learn if there are things they would like you to attempt before arranging for service of your D80.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply. Thanks.

Taking apart a nikon d80

Yikes! Really? I wouldn't attempt this unless you're ready to reduce this camera to a pile of precision fitted parts that will probably never go back together nor be expected function again. If the camera already no longer functions, you could recover some of your investment by selling it on the likes of eBay or Craigslist. You might be able to trade it in towards another camera (or anything else I suppose). If you trade for (or buy for that matter) another Nikon D80, you could reuse all your lenses, speed light(s), etc. If upgrading to a different Nikon, bring a complete list of your old lenses and accessories to determine if they can be used on the new camera. Not all Nikon equipment works on all Nikon camera bodies.

Tearing down the camera will most likely reduce it's value for sale or trade as most people wouldn't attempt this. The device is a high-tech piece of precision parts carefully assembled in a controlled environment. Oils from your hands and other contaminants may end up on parts that over time could adversely affect the camera's functionality or be visible on every image captured.

The camera may possibly be fixed cheaper than you think. Check out the Nikon Digital Imaging Support page below:

Good luck!

You're not nuts. I saw a guy activate live view on the d80 while doing a demonstration on a Youtube tutorial. I just can't seem to find the video nor how to activate Live View on my camera. I think I'll try contacting Nikon directly

D80 shutter issue

Your shutter will stick if it gets dirty or dust gets in the camera, a reputable camera shop can inspect the shutter, the sensor for dust & dirt and can clean it for you. If the battery is low while shooting the shutter can also stick on longer exposures.
