Nikon D80 'error' and 'clock' message

My D80 is not working. It turns on, but none of the functions are working. There is a flashing 'error' message and 'clock' message on the display screen.
I am using it in quite humid conditions, but the camera was working fine until today, and now it cannot take a picture. Please help me.
Thank you,

    Humidity affected my camera. At first it would not take pics at all, showing an r06 on the display. Now I can take pictures but I cannot get into the Menu screen nor modify ISO selection with manual commands. Very weird.
    Every time I try to access an affected command I got the r06 thing. Thanks.-

La batería del reloj
El reloj de la cámara funciona con una fuente de alimentación independiente y recargable que se carga si lo necesita
cuando la batería principal está instalada o la cámara se alimenta mediante un Adaptador opcional de CA EH-
5. Dos días de recarga proporcionarán al reloj la energía suficiente para aproximadamente un mes. Si parpadea
en el panel de control, la batería del reloj está agotada y el reloj ha vuelto a la hora de inicio,
2006.01.01.00:00:00. Ajuste el reloj con la fecha y la hora correctas.

This is why the pros always use a card reader instead of the camera. When you disconnected the camera, did you remember to use the "safely remove hardware" function? The computer was obviously still trying to write and communicate with the camera and if you just disconnected it, the camera became corrupted. Check your manual for instructions for a camera reset. Try that. Also, remove the card and batteries, press every button, leave it alone for 20 minutes, insert the card and then the batteries, turn it on. Sometimes this works.

Hi ktithender, on the left side top of the LCD on the top of the camera is the battery display and the Auto ISO display. What is it you are seeing as an error message? Also, if you are opening, taking apart the D80 there is not much any of us can do to assist you. My suggestion is to call Nikon 800-645-6689

Error message at display screen

Set both the exposure dial and the focusmode to "M" and press the shutter button. Then turn the camera off for 10 - 15 seconds. If this doesn't solve the problem, it's an electronic or mechanical error.

Hi nrkelkar, In the D80 manual page 36 it speaks about the buffer. What you see as an error message is r with a number. The number is how many shots the buffer at that moment can handle. It is not an error message.

It sounds like a bad control. Before replacing the control, make sure it is not in Sabbath Mode, Child lock and if all else fails try resetting the control to factory defaults. If none of these work then replace the clock/control part number 5701M827-60. This part runs about $175.00

I attached a cut out of the service manual, to show how to reset the locks and factory defaults

Nikon d80 problem (err flashing with r09 in the lcd display)

I belive this isn't a fault but more to do with how you are using the camera. The r09 message is to do with the camera buffer and how many more pictures it can hold. You do have a memory card installed, right? The r09 is normally not an error, but simply an indicator of how many more pictures you can take in the current burst before the buffer fills. The number will vary according to the image quality and size settings.

Nikon D80 Err

You did not mention what error mesage you got. If it is a flashing "F--" then it has something to do with your lens.

This usually happens to lenses that have an aperture ring. Do the following:

1. Turn off your camera.
2. Move the aperture ring clockwise and lock it
3. Turn on the camera and see if this works

If this does not work, unlock the aperture ring and move it counter-clockwise then lock it again.

This should fix your problem

D80 and SB-600 FV Lock doesn't work anymore

In whacky situations like this it is always best to re-set your camera and flash settings. Somewhere on your D80 you will find two function buttons with small green dots next to them. These are the resets. Push both in at the same time until the display LCD flashes.. The camera is now reset to default settings.You will now have to re-set your FV button to the custom setting you had it at before.

Also, reset you flash by turning on the power and removing the batteries and re-install them.
