I have a Nikon D80, bought it about 2 yrs ago. I was shooting and the shutter started to hold up like I set up for it open slow for low lighting. After a few more shot then it froze. I had to turn it off and back on to get it going for one shot only.
Later one in the day, I tried to take some more shots but the shutter was stuck shut. Can't see through. After a few attempts to get it open, it opened and stuck open. When depress the shutter button it only flick (sound like it trying to open all the way) and that was. Removed battery, switched lens, let it sit for 24 hrs later. An "err" message is display at the LCD monitor and view every time the shutter is depress and nothing happens.
Help. I can't unstuck the shutter and/or get rid of the "err" messegs on the display LCD.

The Shooting Information screen was introduced with the D40. The older D80 does not have it. Instead it shows almost all of the information in the control panel and/or viewfinder, though you have to delve into the menus for some of it.
Most of the settings you could change via the Shooting Info screen on the D40, you can change by pressing the appropriate button and turning one of the command dials.
The D40 was intended as an introductory dSLR, doing more handholding for new photographers, putting things into visual, menu-driven screens. The D80 was intended as a midlevel camera, allowing faster operation using more buttons. It does less handholding, but once you learn where the controls are, it actually is faster to use. (Okay, that was based on my personal experience, since I've used both.)
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.
During shooting, or when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway, the number of images that can be stored in the memory buffer at current settings is shown on the exposure-count displays in the control panel and viewfinder. "r06" indicates that six images can fit in the camera's buffer, "r08" would indicate eight frames. Any other number could be displayed as well. Burst mode is used when you want to hold down the shutter button and continuously shoot. You are probably shooting in burst mode and your buffer is full, set the camera to single shot and see if that helps.
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.
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).
