Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

1 Answer

My camera will not take multiple shots

I bought my camera a few weeks ago, and it was allowing me when I would push the button to take a photo....holding it down would take multiple photo's. But now, it will not work. I have it on auto setting, I believe it has always been on that. How do I fix this??

Ok, what you need to do is look at the top of your camera, around that smaller LCD screen. On the right side of the screen, you will see a button with three boxes stacked on top of each other.

You need to press that button until it displays the same icon in the TOP RIGHT corner of the smaller LCD screen right next to the button you are pressing.

That button switches the camera from Single shot mode to Multiple shot mode ( as well as a few other modes).

I have a Pentax *ist DL2 camera, which I bought second hand on ebay, but from a very lovely, recommended seller, so he wasn't having me on. But recently, every button I press seems to set the shutter off...


Take off the lens and fire off a few shots. Does the mirror flip up? Or is it permanently up? Does the shutter open? Can you see through the lens? This "lovely, recommended seller" may have unloaded his problems on you.

While shooting the same daylight scene the camera will alternately produce good pictures and then pictures that are very dark.


It sounds as if the iris which adjusts to allow the correct amount of light to enter the camera is sticking. Maybe due to foreign matter being wedged between the vanes of the iris. About the only way I can think of to remedy the problem without visiting the repair man is to set up in a dimly lit room with a torch pointing towards you. Turn your camera on and in the auto mode alternatively point the camera into the torches beam and then away from the torch. This may open and close the iris suficiently to dislodge any fluff or grit from between the vanes. You may have to do it a number of times. A few seconds of bright then a few seconds of dark about a dozen times may do the job. If you have a manual mode try using it by adjusting from wide open to fully closed also a dozen times.
If the camera behaves itself after trying this it should be cured. An old trick but it does work occasionally and well worth a try. Otherwise the iris may need replacing. Which could prove expensive.

One other thing, are you waiting for the camera to set itself up by half pressing the shoot button before each shot. You may be underexposing if you just push the button straight down to take the shot. Make sure you only push halfway to allow the auto focus and auto exposure time to set. Then push all the way for your shot.

Shutter Speed


Two things to try, 1) The release button is a two stage process. Pushing the release button 1/2 way allows the camera to focus on the subject. It needs a few milli-seconds to do this. A full depress releases the shutter, but it you don't allow the camera to focus, things get messed up.

2) Holding a camera of this type with outstretched arms is a sure way to get poor shots. I use my Fuji S5000 with the viewfinder rather than the LCD display for framing shots just like I was using an SLR/DSLR

Continuous Shooting


must be something to do with the mode you are using like auto mode, manual mode P mode so on...havn't use anything else the the manual mode so do a hit and trial procedure. Also be sure to increase the shutter speed...

My camera had a similar prob. Instead of pressing the shutter button half way just press it all the way down and see if that works.

Keeps asking me to turn off and back on...


Since your camera is still under warranty, best thing will be calling Sony's appropriate service center for their assistance. Good luck!

When using the zoom button the cam stops working


This suggests the zoom motor has failed. As you only purchased it 2 weeks ago - it should be replaced under warranty
