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

How do I change the battery?

I have a Nikon D80 and can open the battery latch cover but the battery does not release. Is there another button I need to press to release the battery? I've read the start up guide and the manual and can't find anything on the topic.

Re: How do I change the battery?

Have tried pushing the battery back down into the chamber- so that it pops up? or as above but with camera vertical so that it drops out---catch it.

D80 will not turn on...battery fully charged

I would contact Nikon tech support at They may be able to give you some suggestions. It appears from what you said that the camera is not seeing the battery and that may indicate that your contacts in the battery compartment are dirty and need cleaning.

How do i connect my shutter release cable for a nikon d80

Assuming you're referring to the correct electronic release cable, open the lowest rubber cover on the left side of the camera (as you look at it from the back). Inside you'll see a little jack for the cable.

If you're referring to the old mechanical "plunger" type release, forget it. That's not going to fit onto a D80.

I've given up trying to remove the "err" message from my D80 . I've done everything that was suggested ! removed the lens , cleaned the lens contacts , removed the battery and added a new...

"ERR" is camera error. Two items to try:1/ remove battery while camera is ON while waiting for approx 30 seconds, press and hold the shutter release, insert battery and give it a go. 2/ if there is a camera hardware reset button try that with camera ON. There may be a firmware update on Nikon web site, but if you cannot read the memory card, you cannot install it. Choose your country/area and go to support

I have a D80 since 2 years and since last 1 week have been getting the 'Err' message. Initially, after referring to the manual & pressing the shutter release button, the camera responded only ONCE. ...

Hi sandeepbhat2, On page 129 of the D80 manual is the factory reset switch. Look on the left side of the camera there is the terminal cover, inside below the USB connector is a small reset button. Give that a try. If still it does not work you should call Nikon.

The qual/zoom button on my nikon D80 is stuck or jammed and I can't get it released

Hi Guest, if the buttons themselves are depressed and cannot bounce out as the other buttons do you could try to use a super thin jewelers flat screw driver to see if you can get it to pop out. A few things going on here, grit came between the button and the body or, the item that pushes the button to its return state has lost its resiliency. If it is because of loss of resiliency the camera must go in for repairs and a good CLA.

Cannot remove the battery from by new nikon d300

Hi Dee and thanks for coming to FixYa.

Hold the camera like your going to take a picture. Now turn the camera over to look at the bottom. On the right hand side is a small latch. The latch secures the battery hatch door. Pop the latch and the battery door should open.
Turn the camera back over carefully and the batter should slide out.
Then plug the battery into the charger and you can charge it. Have fun with your new camera!
