Nikon d80 won't expose sometimes on start up

When I turn on my D80 set in the Auto or P mode, I can't make the camera fire. When I first bought the camera, it would fire immediately on start up. Now, I seem to have to focus on a close object and make it fire once before I can proceed

I had the same problem, more often than not it wouldn't focus or shutter release, seemed to be lens to body contact problem so I sent the camera back to Nikon UK. They returned it "repaired" but the fault came back. Went back to retailer (Jessops) and they exchanged for new camera after nearly 12 months. So far so good!

It almost sounds like your lens is not solidly on the body. I remember having a similar problem with a lens. Try starting the camera on A or S priority mode and see it you still have the problem. And check the lens mount.

The r11 is in the lower right of the top LCD or view finder that is in the D80 manual page 36 it speaks about the buffer. The r with a number is how many shots the buffer at that moment can handle. It is not an error message. For auto focus issue is the lens in AF as well as the camera?

My D80 nikon camera was not working specially on


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)

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.

My nikon D80 built-in flash not work in TTL mode


It may be sensing enough light at your location so the flash does not fire. If you want to force it to fire, make sure the flash icon is selected and also use Auto mode to test

My D80 will not auto focus with any of my 3 Nikkor lenses. It will fire on auto focus when you manually focus while in that auto focus mode.


Press the AF button on the top of the camera (to the right of the window) to select an AF mode & make sure the M/A (Manual / Auto focus) switch on the lens set to "A"

Nikon D80 - Singe Focus Area


once you have your settings, is there an option in the menu to save your profile? ( I do not have a Nikon DSLR..) If you can, try saving your profile and then restart again.

"Auto" modes generally are designed to reset to the pre-defined automatic settings, so it may not be possible to keep your changes every time.

Also, you can update the firmware, however there is no mention of any changes which should affect this issue.

Dark photos


  • Be sure camera is set to the Green auto, not the A (A= aperture priority)
  • Be sure your white balance is on auto.
  • Be sure your EV is set to 0
  • Be sure your lens is on M/A, not M
  • Check the internal meter. See if it is showing a middle of the graph reading when the camera is on auto. If it is and you still get dark pix, might be time for Nikon repair.
