Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

NIKON D80 MY CAMERA IS DEAD

After making about 20 photos outdoors I attempted to make some family photos indoors and camera would not shoot. Thinking that the issue was low light I expected a flash to pop up automaticaly but it did not. If I remember correctly, then I tried to turn it off and right back on but I think camera froze. I took the battery out and put it right back in immediately but I still could not turn the camera back on. I tried another battery but camera still did not power on. I recharged battery but camera is still COMPLETLY DEAD. Top screen doesn't show anything. No matter what I do camera has no funcion or indication that has any power.
I pressed reset swich as recommended and camera is still with out any kind power. Camera did not get wet. I took memory card several times in and out and it did not work, camera is still dead.
On line I found a tread talking about very similar issue. If anybody can elaborate on this please do so. It seems this guy had a some sort blown fuse in the camera. Here is a treat content:
"Hi, I owned my D70s for almost 1.5 years and I have taken more than 2,500+ shots with no problem until today when I tried to change the lens during my daughter's Christmas program, the camera sudden got frozen, so I take the battery out and put it back in and my D70s became no response since then. I tried to do the factory reset by pressing the small reset button at the bottom of the body but nothing happen, am I doing the reset correctly?"
"An electronics repair shop in nairobi repaired it. they said it was a blown diode/fuse .. (not sure) in the power motherboard. It coasted me about $80 and its super since."

If after replacing the batteries with new ones or freshly charged ones your camera does not start up, high chances that something internal has failed - that needs some professional checks to be done. The cam is built to identify and report most issues that can be corrected by the user. so if it does not turn on, chances are you need support from a camera repair shop. (Alt : one step that you already tried could have helped is the factory reset - there should be one or two buttons on the cam that needs to be pressed together to reset the cam)

I have nikon d80 the lens makes a funny noise and won't focus for a picture


Not sure this will help you: In AF-S mode, the camera will not shoot until it acquires focus. Look on page 29 of the D80 manual. Now, does another lens make the same noise of only this lens. Can you try the lens on another camera? What this is attempting to do is eliminate the camera or, the lens, that way you know where to go next.

Noisy image


Try etting your ISO lower, this camera can take hihger ISO images but at the expense of grain - shoot at 200 for flash and 100 indoors, and since you are looking for better photos play with the apeture settings go with a lower number for a larger apeture, and or slow down the shutter speed to 1/60th (any slower you need a tripod or VR lens) enjoy!

D80 shutter issue


contactjoni,
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.

Nikon D80 Prints


Have you had the picture printed at a local photo lab. Try that and see if it's your computer/printer matching.

You may have to see if the Camera is set for Adobe RGB (or RGB) and your computer/printer is set for Adobe RGB or sRGB. These need to match. There's a new world with color matching that the point and shoot don't do.


Hope this helps. I could regurgitate all about Color Matching, but why when someone else has it all written out.
