Your question is not much clear. When the camera shut off?? eg, after pressing shutter, etc. Did you use original battery?? What is your camera age?

PROBABILITY :
Your camera might be have on/off button problem.

EXPLANATION :
I had experience this with my coolpix 8xxx (could not remember exact model). The problem is with nikon on/off switch and shutter design. After a few years of usage, then the on/off switch with start losen a bit. These will cause autofocus activated without you pressing the shutter yet, and it will shut off without warning.

SOLUTION.
There is no DIY solution for this problem. For temporary, try your luck with pressing the on/off swith a bit harder. But that is for temporary + a bit of luck. Best solution is to send the camera to Nikon Centre.

D80 will not turn on...battery fully charged


I would contact Nikon tech support at www.nikon.com. They may be able to give you some suggestions. It appears from what you said that the camera is not seeing the battery and that may indicate that your contacts in the battery compartment are dirty and need cleaning.

D80 will not turn on...battery fully charged


Do you get any numerals in the TOP LCD? Say a flashing ERR?

Or just no power and nothing works?

Everything on control panel is flashing. Can't operate camera.


Hi Shirley,

It sounds like your camera's CPU is stuck in a loop. First, I'd remove and transfer any pictures on the SD card in a card reader connected to your computer, followed by formatting the card. Leave the SD card out of the D80. Set the power switch on the D80 to "off" and install a freshly charged battery. If it is still flashing, a "Full Reset" may help.

Nikon recommends that a full reset be done only under direction of Nikon staff. The procedure is outlined along with graphics on this page under "Full reset". I suggest calling Nikon support to see if they think this procedure (or maybe another that they have) will solve the problem.

If you turn off your flash you might get a picture or two more,The flash consumes probably 3/4 of the battery.I have Sony,HP,Fuji,and Cannon cameras,they walk thru batteries like they're free for the taking.

Low Battery Indcator Flashes


You can check the status of your battery, including chargeble life remaining, in the Setup Menu. You need to have the CSM/Setup menu option to display Full menus, not Simple, in order to get battery status. So see if that battery status selection says you need to replace the battery.

Since you can shake the camera to get full battery, it's possible the battery contacts (on the battery or in the camera) are dirty, so check that.

If you do need a new battery, spend the few extra bucks to get a genuine Nikon EN-EL3e from a Nikon dealer. I have learned that many off-brand batteries do not properly implement a needed reserve, and "Genuine Nikon" batteries bought online from non-dealers are often counterfeit, just relabeled junk.
