Nikon D80 Black Screen on LCD

I took a photo in a broad daylight, but when I turned on my camera in the afternoon it doesn't display anything anymore. It could still take pictures though & I doesn't seem to have any error messages. I could still adjust the aperture & ISO on the top screen but my LCD is on the rear is just black it doesn't show anything.

SOURCE: Black Lcd and pictures.

The problem you are experiencing is due to the shutter being stuck closed. Normally the shutter is kept open while you compose the image, and then when you push the button it closes and the CCD records what it was seeing at that moment. When the shutter is stuck the image is blocked from reaching the CCD at all times so you can see nothing. Unfortunately the shutter is a tiny delicate component buried deep within the lens assembly and is not accessible without complete disassembly. I would suggest finding a repair center to ship the camera to, or replacing the camera. I would definitely not _gently_ tap the camera on a hard surface to possibly dislodge a slightly stuck shutter blade. This could easily cause further damage to the camera. However, you are not me. ;) David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Hello cherdh,

To disable those blinking spots, just press the up or down cursor keys at the back of the camera while in playback mode. You will get three different views. One shows the EXIF data (Image data) as an over lay on your photograph. Press the button again to go to histogram mode, with graphs. Press it again to go to a mode where some image data is on the bottom of the display with no blinkies on the image.

Those blinking black spots are called highlights in a photograph. They indicate the areas where your photograph is over-exposed, i.e. where there is too much light and the colours are washed out. It can be a good tool to get a good exposure. Keep clicking with different settings till you get an exposure without those blinking spots.

I hope this helps.

This sounds like a broken or cracked LCD screen. The backlite is working, thus you will get the white screen. The LCD could also be disconnected internally, or has other problems. But this is a direct problem with the LCD.
A camera like this can usually take pictures, and you may be able to use it to set the menus by using the video cable to the TV or computer screen (some flat screens have video inputs).

What setting do you put your camera on for night shots


Most important: Turn off the flash. This will lead to longer shutter speeds so you may need to put the camera on a tripod or other support.

If you want your pictures to look as if they were taken at night instead of in broad daylight, you may need to set exposure compensation to underexpose the picture. Refer to your camera documentation.

If you need further assistance please feel free to repost this question and add additional details starting with the make and model of your camera.

I took pictures from my nikon d40x but all photos are displayed black in lcd. Would you know how to fix this error?


If your LCD screen works normally as a viewfinder and lets you review photos then your shutter is likely stuck in the closed position. If the display is black in all modes your LCD display is bad. Unfortunately, there is no safe DIY fix for either problem. The camera will require professional repair.

I took 18 pictures and the display is saying FEE I cannot take anymore pictures what does this mean?


Need more information..
.. memory capacity, internal and/or expansion (cards), file size/resolution of the pictures....

I would suggest that the memory is full, and the solution is to transfer the 18 photos to your computer and clear out the memory, or add more memory.

If you have an expansion card installed, maybe you need to tell the camera where to store the photos.

Nikon D80 - LCD screen goes blank in the mountains


In the mountains, are you subjecting the camera to wide swings of temperature or humidity? These could cause your symptoms.

Battery level don't show on display.


hi friend,

follow these steps
  1. Turn off your LCD display screen. I know this is hard—who likes shoving their face against the camera to compose a shot through the little viewfinder? But the LCD screen single-handed-ly drains a lot of power.
  2. Minimize the picture preview to the least amount of time possible—usually one second. This uses less LCD screen time, thus less power.
  3. Dim the brightness on your LCD screen. A dimmer display extends battery life by consuming less power to light the screen. This might make the display harder to see, but usually only in direct sunlight.
  4. Set the power saver to the least amount of time. Power saver lets your digital camera “sleep” when not in use, but doesn’t shut it down entirely. To “wake up” your digital camera, simply click the shutter button.
  5. Use your zoom as little as possible. The motor that moves the lens uses power. This also goes for repeatedly turning your digital camera on and off if it has an extend able lens.
  6. Turn off the continuous focus. Again, constantly using motors and electronics to ready your shot drastically minimizes battery life.
  7. Don’t push the shutter button half-way down until you’re ready to shoot. Pushing the shutter button (constantly resetting and refocusing) will drain battery life.
  8. Use the flash only when necessary. Your digital camera’s “auto flash” option should take care of this, but make sure your flash isn’t going off in broad daylight.
  9. Don’t delete pictures from your digital camera unless necessary. This consumes power. Wait until you download the pictures to your computer before deleting.
  10. This one’s basic, but charge your battery often. Lithium ion batteries, which most digital cameras use, don’t have “battery memory” like older alkaline. In fact, lithium ions work better and last longer if charged completely and regularly.

thank u for using fixya
