    The shutter will not release most of the time. When it does, and it is a daylight picture, it is very overexposed. I have tried this in many shooting modes.

Where is the aperture ring on d80 Nikon

If you are using an older lens the aperture ring will be close to the camera body when the lens is on the camera. In order to set the aperture with a D80 and older lens you must set the aperture ring to "22" or the highest number on the aperture ring available. For newer lenses there is no aperture ring. You set the aperture by setting the dial on the top left of the D80 to "A" for Aperture Priority. You then set the aperture by rotating the front dial on the right side of the camera under the shutter release button. On older lenses, after setting the aperture ring to the highest number, you then set the aperture in the same manner.

Turn camera "off, replace battery and turn "On" again. If thre is a hardware reset button (check manual carefully) while camera is "On" use that reset button/

Sometimes there is a 6-10 second delay in the shutter also there are times the shutter wont work at all. What does r11 and r9 mean when depressing the shutter button half way down?

"R(x)" or "R(xx) is the estimated numbeer of shots left on your storage card. For the delay: with camera in the "ON" position, remove battery(ies), and while waiting approximately 30 seconds, continue holding the power button. REplace batteries and see if that helps. Also, if your model has a hardware reset button, give that a go.

Shutter stuck half open

This sounds like the mechanism has worn. It is a straight forward service centre procedure, I wouldn't recommend trying to do anything that will make it worse. Leave it to Nikons engineers.

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.
