    I solved it! Not without the help from others on this forum who posted the same problems and solutions. I read that "F--" is an indication that there is an electrical break in the connection between the camera body and the lens. I took the lens off the body and carefully re-attached it. It fixed the problem.

    Thanks everyone.

    Nikon D80 getting the "F---" message. I would turn off/on sometimes several times and then the lens would work. Similar problem with battery- saying its dead but it wasn't. I was traveling in Egypt and getting very frustrated- losing shot opportunities. I purposely had been using an 18-200 lens all purpose so I wouldn't need to remove it and open camera to potential dust. Taking off lens/putting back on didn't help me. Eventually I just blew on the cpu connections on the lens and put it back on. No further problems. Just cleaning cloth on the battery connection as well. Also worked. Nikon help suggests I send the camera in for cleaning, but I'd rather not do that. Yet I'm concerned my "solution" is coincidental and not a long term fix.

    Any advice?

    I have same problem. There is a bit of "play" with all my lenses since i bought the camera new when it first came out. I was getting the "F---" message and wiggling the lens to get it to work again. Arrgh!! I was missing shots like crazy to the point of scraping the camera and buying something in a Canon full frame. I cleaned the contacts on the camera body and everything works like new again. Sometimes I feel like such a noob.

Remove the lens, clean the contacts, reattach the lens, and jiggle the lens to seat the contacts. If that doesn't fix it, either the camera or the lens may require service.

The LCD continues to flash ERR and although the shutter sounds when the button is depressed, no image is taken.


Hi cpereira27, the manual states on page 132 "press shutter-release button again. If error persists, consult with Nikon authorized service representative". Something else to try is to reset the camera, you will find how to at the bottom of page 129.

Nikon d80 problem (err flashing with r09 in the lcd display)


I belive this isn't a fault but more to do with how you are using the camera. The r09 message is to do with the camera buffer and how many more pictures it can hold. You do have a memory card installed, right? The r09 is normally not an error, but simply an indicator of how many more pictures you can take in the current burst before the buffer fills. The number will vary according to the image quality and size settings.

My d 80 gives an err message on the lcd and r 09 is flashing on it, the shutter just clicks and makes the sound but no picture taken, i am frustrated please help


The r09 just tells you how many pictures you can shoot before the internal memory buffer is full. It's not an error message2_bing.gif. If the camera isn't taking a picture, then it's something unrelated to the R09 message. If the shutter clicks, then it probably IS taking a picture.

Nikon d80 will not take a picture the letter r flashes


your subject maybe very near that's why the auto mode prevents you from closing the shutter. R just stands for remaining images in the buffer.

The r09, r11 or r17 just tells you how many pictures you can shoot before the internal memory buffer is full. It's not an error message, and I don't think there's any way to turn it off.

Flash doesn't work


don't drop a D80. wrap the fabric clipped onto the camera (say for hanging around your neck, which is a bad idea because of heat.) around your wrist two to three times, EVERY time you use it.

There is a message in front of my picture on the monitor


When viewing pictures in playback mode, simply turn the index finger dial (up by the shutter button) and this will change the 'mode' in which you view the pictures and should eventually get you to a setting where this information disappears.

Dark Picture


I am assuming the following two things.

1. The part was indoors.
2. You are using the 18-135 mm lens with the Nikon D80.

The problem with shooting indoors is that not enough light goes in through the lens to the filter. Solutions:

1. Use the flash with every shot. In case there is not flashlight available, use the on board flash. Press the top button behind the barrel on the camera. It has a lighting icon. It will pop open the flash. If you are in 'P', 'A', 'S' mode, the camera will sync the shutter speed with flash. If the camera is on auto mode (The green camera icon) the flash will pop up and fire by itself.

2. Use the lens with with lowest f stop, i.e. with bigger aperture.

3. Increase ISO. You ought to get usable photographs right up to 800. To change ISO, press the button on the back of the camera which says 'ISO' (Second button from bottom) and turn the primary command dial simultaneously to change ISO setting. Higher ISO speed = Lower shutter speed (But less clarity too).

Hope it helps.
