The lens is not in all the way OR the connections on the lens or camera may be dirty.

Sounds like the shutter is sticking. This could be due to damage or just need cleaning. This probably means that you need to get the camera professionally serviced/fixed as shutters are extremely delicate.

Make sure the lens is mounted fully (give it a little twist to see if the error clears). Also, check the gold contacts inside the body, where the body touches the gold "points" on the lens, to make sure they are clean. A pencil eraser is a good cleaning device for these contacts. I hope this solves it for you.

Usually you get this kind of problem in variations of temperature. Humidity means moisture and that isn't good. The Nikon D80 body was not built for harsh conditions. Nikon define that any use above 85% humidity, or use near 100 degrees, plus any use involving moisture of any kind? including hands/body (camera resting on a shirt while walking) is bad. So it's not robust by any stretch of the imagination. The model is not made with environmental seals, like pro models. I guess they aimed this model at enthusiastic amateurs and didn't see the need. Trouble is this model can, in the right hands take pro-quality shots. I use two, like you, but I saw this problem coming and I never wear them suspended from the neck and put them away when they are not in use with plenty of silica gel in my bag. I shoot racing and I REALLY sweat! If you have the lcd screen up against you on a hot day it intensifies the heat. The problem is likely to be moisture on the PCB board, which causes corrosion to the board. If you've ever done gym class and the windows have steamed up it's the same thing. It's just means the temperature inside the camera is way too hot. Anything electrical causes heat, so the temperature on the inside is gonna be way hotter. If it is cooler on the outside it causes condensation. If you have dried it out and you still have problems it's gonna need fixing at Nikon. The bottom line is that it's fragile; that is alluded to in the manual. It sounds improbable but I can assure you that Nikon will tell you the same. It's not the sweat on your hands that is causing the moisture..highly unlikely. Hope that helps.

hi..
This screen shows areas of the photo that are overexposed slightly.
It flashes them to help you.
You get to this screen by pressing the up or down arrows when displaying the pictures you have taken.

To change it just press the up arrow when the camera is showing the screen until you get a display without flashing.

Once you have done this the display will be steady.
If you get any other screen in future you may have accidently pressed the arrow again.
Just cycle thru the displays to get back to steady.

thank u
rate me!!

When I turn on nikon d80 err flashes


The Nikon D-90 users manual says on page 256 that the ERR message indicates a camera malfunction and that it can be cleared by releasing the shutter.

I've found on my D-90 that the only way I can get the shutter to release is my turning the camera off. When I turn it back on the ERR message is gone and the camera functions as it should.

Occasionally, I have had to remove and reinstall the battery to make the camera turn off but this happens only rarely.

The users manual says if the condition occurs frequently or persists that you should contact a Nikon authorized repair center. I suggest that you contact Nikon tech support at www.nikon.com to see what they suggest. I think this information would apply to the D-80 as well.

The r05 is not an error message. It is an indication that the camera is shooting in burst mode (multiple shots with one button push) and that you can shoot five more shots before the camera must pause, clean its cache and be prepared to shoot again.

I've also got a D90- nice camera. I only get the err message when the lens is not seated correctly or the f-stop ring is not set to the max. If you check the settings and assembly correctly and they seem OK, then the contacts may be dirty or faulty. If the indicator is blinking pre-shutter release, that may indicate the same issues. If you have another lense to try, that may be a good indicator of bad contacts or issues in the lense.

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.

Flashing "Err" message with a code 999. Can't shoot pictures.


Try resetting the camera.

First a soft reset is to just replace the battery. If that doesn't work try a hard reset - on the bottom the other side to the battery flap.

D70 Err message


You most likely need the shutter replaced. I see them frequently. Not something you want to try yourself, as it is an in depth repair.
