Question about Nikon D80 Body Only Digital Camera
Everything on control panel flashes even when camera is turned off. Can't call up menu or otherwise use camera.
Hi Shirley, Nikon Technical Support 8AM - 12AM (Eastern) 1-800-Nikon-US
It sounds like your camera's CPU is stuck in a loop. First, I'd remove and transfer any pictures on the SD card in a card reader connected to your computer, followed by formatting the card. Leave the SD card out of the D80. Set the power switch on the D80 to "off" and install a freshly charged battery. If it is still flashing, a "Full Reset" may help.
Nikon recommends that a full reset be done only under direction of Nikon staff. The procedure is outlined along with graphics on this page under "Full reset". I suggest calling Nikon support to see if they think this procedure (or maybe another that they have) will solve the problem.

Pcog3 & Guests,
Check to make sure (before you turn aon the camera) that the SD card is seated and lens is completely in the right position, if it's not the camera will malfunction and stay or turn off. The last guest that doesn't have info on the LCD can turn the menu items back on in the settings preferences.

Ok this is a crappy fix but it works for me.
If your flash isn't syncing correctly make sure your on auto flash. when your flash flips up and you get the beep push the piece that holds the flash just a little forward. and walla your flash syncs up.
