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.

    Yes, I double and triple checked. It is set to remote mode. It worked before so I thought I needed to replace the battery in the remote. I did that, and even stood directly in front of the camera and pointed at the sensor just to test it...nothing. I then purchased a new remote, it doesn't work either. :(

    Make sure both the lens on the remote and the cover over the sensor on the camera are clean. If needed, wipe them with a moist cloth. Then, if you have another digital camera (compact point&shoot cameras work best) that can show the image on the screen before taking a picture (sorry, but you can't use the D80 for this), turn the camera on, position the camera and the remote so as to take a picture of the remote, then press the button on the remote. If it's working, you should see it glow white on the camera's monitor.

I want to use my nikon d80 with my sb600 and as a infrared remote


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!

I have a Nikon D80 and one day, I suddenly couldn't take pictures. When I turn my camera on, it automatically blinks the Err message. My shutter mechanics work fine, it recognizes my lenses, and playback...


Had same problems. The shutter is faulty although my D80 only registered about 2,000 shots.

Get it fixed at Nikon Service Center. It's your only option. Cost me $120.

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.

Nikon D80 no picture number in LED & menu not working


Format the SD cards with the camera. You might have to do a software upgrade on the camera since the Kodak card files are different than Nikons.

How to fix -E- problem Nikon D80. Thanks


The -E- just means that there is no SD card in the camera. There is also a setting that prevents the camera from attempting to take a shot without a card, and I assume that represents your flash in the viewfinder.

D80 shutter issue


contactjoni,
Your shutter will stick if it gets dirty or dust gets in the camera, a reputable camera shop can inspect the shutter, the sensor for dust & dirt and can clean it for you. If the battery is low while shooting the shutter can also stick on longer exposures.
