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

1 Answer

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.

    The latch will come fully open, but the battery can not be extracted.
    Solution?

    Did anything come off or out of the camera? Was it dropped lately?

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 www.nikon.com. 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.

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.

I have a Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 and i need to change the battery. I cant find any latch or button to open the mouse to put new batteries in it! I looked on the MS site and found nothi


There is actually no release button on my 5000. Between the white on-off button and the bluetooth synch button there is a finger notch. If you put your index finger in the notch (pointing toward the base of the mouse you can put your nail under the lip and the batter compartment opens right up. There is a horizontal slot in the battery cover - trying to pry that open does not work. The whole thing is well-cloaked but surprisingly easy when you figure it out!

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!
