Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens
When I press the shutter the auto focus moves the lens back and forth but the shutter doesn't release. Not a battery problem. Sometimes the shutter releases if I insist but it sounds sluggish
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

If a lens has an "A - M" switch, move it to "M" to manually focus. If the switch
- M " then leave on M/A (unless you're going to be taking several or more in manual mode), as these lenses may be focused manually at any time in either position. As soon as you tap
the shutter button in M/A you return to autofocus.
More advanced lenses, like the 18-200mm, 70-300mm VR and 18-135mm, and any lens with an M/A position, may be focused manually at any time without moving any switches. Leave them in their A or A/M positions.
I hope this helps and good luck!

Choose how the camera focuses.
A (auto) M d (Shooting menu) M I Autofocus mode
A Single AF (default setting)
The camera focuses when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway.
B Full-time AF
The camera focuses continuously until the shutter-release button is pressed down
halfway. Use with moving subjects. The sound of lens drive movement will be heard
while the camera focuses.
