Re: Playback

Have you completed the firmware update from Nikon's website? If not, you need to download it: CLICK HERE. After that, if your camera still doesn't act right, please let us know. If you have already done that, you might try navigating to the reset (Select 'Custom Settings' and then 'Reset') and trying again with all settings reset to factory settings.

Here is a link to the PAGE CONTAINING THE Nikon D80 OWNER'S MANUAL

Hope this helps, if not, please reply.

You can delete photos from your SX130 IS in two ways:
To Delete Photos Individually:
  1. Press Playback Mode button (looks like a play button and is located on the top right on the LCD-side of your camera)
  2. The last image you took will appear on the LCD screen.
  3. Use the Left & Right arrow keys or turn scroll wheel to cycle through your images
  4. Once you find an image you want to delete, press the Trash button. The image will be erased.
  5. Press the Playback Mode button or the FUNC/SET buttons to exit when done
To Delete ALL Photos
  1. Press the MENU button (bottom right button on LCD-side of camera) to bring up the Menu screen
  2. On the Playback tab (Looks like a Play button icon), use the arrow buttons or turn scroll wheel to scroll down to Erase. Press the FUNC/SET button.
  3. You now have three options Select, Select Range, and All images. Select will allow you to delete individual images, Select Range will allow you to select a series of images, and All images will delete all images from memory. This last one is the option we are looking for.
  4. Use the arrow keys or scroll wheel to choose All images
  5. Use the arrow key or scroll wheel to select OK when the Erase confirmation screen pops up.
  6. Your images will be erased!

Full screen not displayed when viewing shot and playback

You mean that the image you take and playback is in 4:3 ratio. The default settings is 4:3. However, if you want to take widescreen (16:9 full LCD) images, just change the Image Size setting in the menu to 16:9 L (4288x2416 pixels) or 16:9 S (1920x1080 pixels). See the user manual page 30.
