Re: d80 with nikkor 18-200, no picture
You mean the LCD on the back of the camera right? The image that shows up (playback) can have the duration changed in the menu settings, it may have been turned off which is a choice as well that mode (not having the LCD on) extends shooting time which used to be a problem with the earl D70 and the earlier battery type. The D80 doesn't have that issue, try experimenting with how much time you really need to have the display on, if you shoot and like to show the image to people set it longer or just hit the playback a couple of times as you are showing people.

You don't. The screen on the back is for menu settings, shooting information, and reviewing pictures you've already taken. The ability to see the scene before taking pictures was introduced with its successor, the D90. With the D80 you need to use the viewfinder to compose and frame your pictures.
Which is it? The LCD will not show anything, or it will show previously taken pictures? Does it show menus when you press the MENU button? The D80's LCD will not show pictures before you take them. The LCD is for menus, shooting information, and reviewing pictures already taken. You must use the viewfinder for composing your pictures. The LiveView capability which lets you use the LCD for composing is a recent development in DSLRs. Nikon introduced it to their product line with the D3 and D300, released years after the D80.
The 650-1300 lens does not have the electronics to communicate with the camera. You have to use it in the Manual exposure mode, without any help from the camera's light meter.
The D80 doesn't have the LiveView capability, which lets you use the LDC monitor instead of the viewfinder for framing your pictures. This has nothing to do with the lens. Nikon introduced this capability with the D3 and D300, which came out after the D80.
The D80 does not have the LiveView feature to allow using the LCD monitor for taking the picture. Nikon introduced this feature with the D3 and D300, which came out well after the D80. You have to use the viewfinder.
Sorry if this wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's just the way this camera works.
i think the f-- code means its not recognizing your lens correctly. make sure all the contacts on lens and camera are clean. the r11 is the buffer. nothing to worry about.
The number of images that can be stored in the memory buffer at current settings is shown in the exposure-count displays in the
viewfinder and control panel while the shutter-release button is pressed. This number is updated as photographs are transferred to the memory card and more memory becomes available in the buff er. If 0 is displayed, the buff er is full and shooting will slow. Shooting can continue up to a maximum of 100 shots.
At first it sounds like a faulty aperture blade that is stuck after your first press. However you mentioned that this happened in other lenses as well. Seems to me that there is a problem with your camera (e.g. mirror lockup problem or something else). Pls have it looked at by Nikon
What you see through the viewfinder is not exactly what you get in your picture. It is possible that your settings are just off in the camera. To make sure that this is the problem, set your settings to Auto and try again.
The red light before the picture is taken is a setting you can turn on to indicate that you have focused correctly. You can turn this off in the menu if this bothers you.
Lastly, I do not think your camera is broken. You just need to read your manual to make sure your settings are correct when you take a picture. Hope this helps.
