I had this problem too and then I figured it out. If you click on the up button it pulls up your histogram, just keep pressing it till it shows just the picture. I will scroll through the index, histogram, highlight, and then normal. Hope this helps.

I have a Nikon D80 camera. I somehow, unintentionally turned on the preview screen that shows all of the info. I don't want any print on my screen, no highlight, no RGB, nothing but picture.

If you were seeing a preview on the LCD monitor on the back of the camera, then there was something seriously wrong with the camera. Nikon did not introduce the LiveView feature until later models.
If you're asking about review instead of preview and seeing graphs or lots of data, press up/down on the multiselector to cycle through different views of your pictures until you get to one you like.

Hi I have Nikon D80 with no manual, my problem is I cant switch on lcd to use instead of using eye piece when taking pictures

Your camera is a "Fixed eye-level pentaprism" it has no "Live View" so it can't switch from the viewfinder to the LCD screen. You have a real camera one that will offer far better pictures using the viewfinder then others using the LCD screen.

I'm going to give you a ling to a Google search for a PDF manual the two right on the top of the list are from Ken Rockwell who is in my opinion one of the best writers of manuals and how to

Take a look for yourself there is two guides there and you will see some really great information about your camera Ken Rockwell writes a review which is unbiased as he is an independent. Yes he's going to ask for a "Donation" some do but most don't. You have a great camera there don't be dissatisfied with it because it lacks some feature.

Help! I picture without having the memory card in. I could see them on the LCD screen after I took them but now I can't get the camera menu back to the screen that would allow me to see them.

Those pictures are gone. The D80 has enough internal memory to hold one picture so you can see how it works. In order to save pictures, you MUST have a memory card in the camera.

I just got my new Nikon D80 but cannot get the LCD screen to light up. Where do I find the setting or the LCD screen to have it on while shooting pictures?

The D80 does not use the LCD screen to take images. The screen is only used to review images and use the menu system to check or change camera settings. When shooting, you need to use the viewfinder above the screen.

Lcd screen: lighter images flash from normal to

You are probably viewing the preview screen in "Highlight" mode. To fix this, use the dial button at the back of the D80 and click up (or down) to see another depiction of the preview screen. It will show you different options until you can see the normal picture without the flashing highlights. Hope this helps.

Nikon D80 no picture number in LED & menu not working

Format the SD cards with the camera. You might have to do a software upgrade on the camera since the Kodak card files are different than Nikons.
