This may be due to a faulty battery. Make sure you change to a fully charged Nikon battery and retry.

Nikon d80 turn off image information from view screen


The up and down arrows on the multi-function button on the back of the camera set the image on the display. With the display on, press the up or down arrow to function through the display settings and the stop on the one you want.


This often happens when you accidentally hit one of the arrow buttons while taking the picture and this changes the display image to the histogram or other display setting.

Lcd doesnt work for picture taking


It's not supposed to. The D80 works as SLRs have worked for half a century, allowing you to frame the picture through the viewfinder. The LiveView capability was introduced with later cameras such as the D90 and D300. On the D80 the display is used for settings, menus, and reviewing pictures after they've been taken.

I have a d80.problem: lcd will not show anything. lcd will show previous taken pictures


Which is it? The LCD will not show anything, or it will show previously taken pictures? Does it show menus when you press the MENU button?
The D80's LCD will not show pictures before you take them. The LCD is for menus, shooting information, and reviewing pictures already taken. You must use the viewfinder for composing your pictures. The LiveView capability which lets you use the LCD for composing is a recent development in DSLRs. Nikon introduced it to their product line with the D3 and D300, released years after the D80.

I got a remote for my D80 how do i get it to work?


Set the Release mode on the camera to one of the remote modes by holding down the release mode button on the right of the camera (the one with the remote and the clock-like self-timer icons) and turning the command dial on the back of the camera. The two choices are Quick-response, where the camera takes a picture when you press the button on the remote, and Delayed-response, where the camera waits two seconds while you hide the remote behind your back before taking a picture.

Look in the camera manual under "Choosing a Shooting Mode" and "Using a Remote Control". They are on pages 36 and 38 of my copy of the D80 manual, yours may differ.

D80-viewer and display stay black, the flash


If your camera got moisture inside and you turned it on before it had a chance to completely dry (usually takes several days) you may have caused a short circuit.

When I try to view my pictures on the LCD screen, the white area of the picture flashes. Last week on vacation, it would intermitenly stop taking pictures. I would have to set the lens and camera to...


Hello,

If this is the same as my Nikon this is the overexposed highlight display option.
This shows areas of the photograph that are overexposed slightly.

On my Nikon I use the up and down arrows on the back to cycle the LCD display options.
Stop when you get a display that does not flash.

As for the focus problem check if you have set the front control to AF not M, also check if the lens is set to A not M.

D80 with nikkor 18-200, no picture


raatl, You mean the LCD on the back of the camera right?  The image that shows up (playback) can have the duration changed in the menu settings, it may have been turned off which is a choice as well that mode (not having the LCD on) extends shooting time which used to be a problem with the earl D70 and the earlier battery type.  The D80 doesn't have that issue, try experimenting with how much time you really need to have the display on, if you shoot and like to show the image to people set it longer or just hit the playback a couple of times as you are showing people.

D80 LCD response


If there was an active display, then there was something wrong with your camera.

The D80 does not have a Live View capability.

Control Panel display no information.


Do you mean the control panel on top or the big LCD on the back?

The display on top should be showing you stuff like the shutter speed and aperture as you take the picture.

The display on the back will not show you the picture while you're taking it. The D80 does not have a Live View capability.
