    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.

Followed the mirror lock procedure as outlined in the manual for cleaning the sensor. That solved the problem.

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.

'err' sign on display nikkon D80, and appear r 15 when shutter button is press


"rXX" is just the camera estimate of how many pictures left on memory card. As for "ERR": while camera is in "On" position, take out battery and hold shutter button approximately 30 seconds. 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.

If the lighting is low and shutter speed is set for a long period of time its the function of the camera taking the picture. If it is a malfunction of the shutter take it in for cleaning you might have foriegn material stuck in your shutter mechanism

Nikon d80, setting not remembered


I'm thinking it's an internal problem - probably needs fixing at Nikon. I can't think what else you can do.

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.

Dark Picture


I am assuming the following two things.

1. The part was indoors.
2. You are using the 18-135 mm lens with the Nikon D80.

The problem with shooting indoors is that not enough light goes in through the lens to the filter. Solutions:

1. Use the flash with every shot. In case there is not flashlight available, use the on board flash. Press the top button behind the barrel on the camera. It has a lighting icon. It will pop open the flash. If you are in 'P', 'A', 'S' mode, the camera will sync the shutter speed with flash. If the camera is on auto mode (The green camera icon) the flash will pop up and fire by itself.

2. Use the lens with with lowest f stop, i.e. with bigger aperture.

3. Increase ISO. You ought to get usable photographs right up to 800. To change ISO, press the button on the back of the camera which says 'ISO' (Second button from bottom) and turn the primary command dial simultaneously to change ISO setting. Higher ISO speed = Lower shutter speed (But less clarity too).

Hope it helps.
