SOURCE: how to use Nikon remote for D80
Set the release mode to one of the two remote modes. Quick-response takes a shot immediately, Delayed-remote waits two seconds, giving you an opportunity to hide the remote control behind your back.

Check the following:
- Make sure your lens is screwed on correctly. Try to remove it and put it on again.
- Make sure the dial is squarely pointed to Auto
- Make sure the Auto-Focus switch in front of the camera is turned to A (not to M)

The Nikon D80's shutter can be released via handheld "IR" or infrared remote. You can buy them online or in most camera shops. The Nikon branded one will cost the most, but really doesn't perform a whole lot better than the $5 third party versions. The nice thing about IR remotes is that only a transmitter is needed. There's a built in IR receiver on the front of the camera body, and as long as it is not obstructed - or too far from the transmitter, it will work fine.
The SB600 will fire if setup to work correctly when the shutter is released "normally" - triggering with a IR remote will not affect the SB600 flash whether mounted on the camera or if in "commander mode". The D80 manual has details on pg 38 to operate in both the instant and time delayed IR operation modes and should be consulted as Nikon does not allow copy and paste from the manual - and they make use of graphics for button functions.
When distances are too great for the IR remote, you'll need to go the route of an RF or radio frequency remote instead. Many of these will work at distance up to and even beyond 100 yards. They consist of a transmitter and receiver. The receiver can be mounted on the hot shoe of the camera or tethered via cable to the camera body. This is not the question you asked about, so I won't go into further detail - but only mention it as another way of doing the same thing from greater distances or when you can not be in front of the camera to access the IR receiver on the D80 body.
If this was helpful, please rate it as such. Thanks and good luck!

Just to be sure, you are setting the camera to one of the remote modes? If you're not, the camera will ignore the infrared remote.
