On my D-90 "F--" indicates that the lens is not communicating with the camera body. It could be because of dirty contacts or another problem. One solution that has been effective for others is to hold the lenses release button down and rotate the lens in place 10 or more times as a way to clean the contacts.


If that doesn't work, try contacting Nikon tech support at www.nikon.com to see what they may suggest.

What the best flash for d80? s sb 800 & 900 compatible for it?


The best flash for YOUR D80 is the one that best suits YOUR needs. Both the SB-800 and SB-900 are compatible with the D80. So is the SB-600, which is lighter and smaller.

I have a Nikon D80 camera that is about 1 year old. I has worked fine until about 6 months ago. Sometimes when I turn it on and press the button to take the picture nothing happens. I have to wait awhile...


Are you getting a Err message? If so The ERR message is not a good thing. Read page 132 of the D80 Manual. Also, try a factory reset found on page 129 of the manual. On the left side of the camera is the terminal cover, inside below the USB connector is the reset switch. If that does not work call Nikon digital 1-800-645-6689.

D80 SLR lens /flash prob lem


What are your other lenses? If they're not AF lenses, you're not going to get autofocus or metering.

Is your flash not working when popped up? Remember that the flash won't pop up automatically in Manual mode.

What flash for Nikon D80


No, the FT1700 is not TTL compatible which is what the camera wants to use. The Promaster 7500EDF is compatible in all modes with the Nikon D80

Camera will not take picture with nikkor 105mm lens


Check if the lens is properly mounted. If still you get the error message, clean the electrical contacts between the lens and the camera using an eraser. Take care not to let any dust fall into the body. Attach the lens and try.

I'm unable to get a full size image on my D80's monitor.


You must have accidentally hit the Thumbnail button while viewing photos (the one with a magnifying glass and 4-way arrow). Press the Playback Zoom button (bottom one with just the magnifying glass) to go back to single frame view. If you keep pressing the Zoom button it will zoom in further on the image you are viewing, and you can use the arrows to move around in it.

D80 flash doesn't close


erik, It's a little plastic arm with a tiny hook that moves to allow the flash to pop up when you press the flash button on the front of the camera or select the built-in flash option.  You may be able to get parts direct from Nikon or if you have a good local repair shop they may have a parts D80 to cannibalize for you if you have the skill to put it together.  If you got the camera at a good price and don't really rely on the built-in flash, (one on the hot shoe is always better) then tape that puppy down with some electrical tape until the repair is done and shoot all you want, peel it back for the pop up when you need a fill in flash or you don't have the flash with you.
