Sell it or pawn it. It does not sound like a cheap repair.

How do I change the aperture when my camera is in manual mode


You have to hold down the exposure compensation button at the same time as turning the control dial.
The values appear on the control panel screen.

I found this on page 33 of the manual...
Set the mode dial to M and turn the control dial to set the value.
• To set the shutter speed: Turn the control dial.
To set the aperture value:Turn the control dial while holding down the
[+-](exposure compensation) button.

The exposure level indicator appears on the control panel screen, showing the difference (ranging from -3 EV to +3 EV) between the exposure value calculated by the currently selected aperture
and shutter speed compared to the exposure value considered optimum by the camera.

Cannot fire shutter on d80


Hi, Have you cleaned the lens' electrical contacts?or is the lens connected loosely?? Examine but probably little need to clean the camera's electric contacts considering its' young age. Do you have access to another AF body on which you can test the lens and another AF lens to test the D80? Do the following things 1.take a dust free eraser and clean the contacts on the camera carefully by keeping it upside down to prevent dust going inside. 2.do the same for lens contacts. re-attach the lens firmly. hope this solves your probs. regards sreejith

Incorrect exposure


It sounds like you've got exposure bracketing turned on. Hold down the Fn button and turn the main command dial to change the number of shots to 0.
Full details are in the "Bracketing" subsection of the "Exposure" section of the manual (page 130 in my copy). If you need a manual, you may download a copy here.

I turn on the camera and on the screen at the top it says F EE and blinks those letters, and i dont know why or how to fix it..can you help?


Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest aperture (largest f/number). You can control the aperture from the camera as you do on a lens without an aperture ring.

Hello frns i got err in my camera D80 control panel plz


If your lens has an aperture ring, do note that most of these lenses require the ring to be locked at a certain position for it to work. In the course of using the lens, you may have accidentally unlocked the aperture ring and moved it out of position. This is a common problem.

To fix this error, try this:

1. Turn off camera
2. Turn the aperture ring clockwise and then lock it
3. Turn on the camera

If you still encounter the same problem, repeat the same steps but turn the aperture ring counter-clockwise. Hope this helps.

HOW TO SET UP THE D80 FOR HDR


Page 140 of your manual "Bracketing Programs" . This camera seems only to be able to do a 3 frame bracket. Normal , Over , and Under exposure. Set the auto bracket to (3) frames, set a 2.0 bracketing increment the order is not really that important. Normal however should be your first frame shot. Make sure that only the speed changes in the different exposures not the aperture this would lead to de-focused images. One you have the three images you will have to bring them into ©Photoshop or ©Photomatrix Pro to create your HDR file. The camera will not create this HDR on its own. there are plenty of HDR tutorials on YouTube. Use a tripod ond a cable relaes when you are shooting in order to reduce movement in you images.

Aperture


You need to set the aperture ring on the lens to the minimum f-stop number, i.e. f22,f32. The camera controls the aperture rather than a mechanical setting on the lens

CD400 Exposure Bracketing BUG!!!


What is the aperture and shutter speed when you take the bracketed exposure? The reason I ask is if the camera is at it's limit in shutter speed or aperture you could get a no change exposure.
