Re: d80

Maybe you have changed the mode to "Remote control" - it's the button on top with multiple pages on it (in front of the AF button)
If a remote is shown on the LCD press the button until [S] is shown

A message displays on my screen 'Card is Locked. How do it change thing to being unlocked so I can take photos

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Shutter release not responding

Hi tmclaughlin0, In the camera is in AF-S mode, the camera will not shoot until it acquires focus. Look on page 29 of the D80 manual.

My Nikon D80 won't shoot multiple pictures when in sports mode.

Please read page 36 in the D80 manual. What you are looking for is just down from the top, "Continous".

I recently purchased the D80 and had no problems, it worked great and took magnificant shots. However, the other day I turned it on and the viewfinder was now, dark and out of focus. The battery was fully...

Check the mirror. The image you see in the viewfinder comes through the lens, and is reflected by the mirror. If it's dirty, it will affect the image you see. When you take the picture, the mirror lifts up, the viewfinder image is interrupted, and the light from the lens goes to the image sensor. So...if the mirror is dirty, the picture will be fine but the viewfinder image will be dark or out of focus.

Nikon D80 Error Massege and some setting doesn't work

This link may be of service.
From a glance, it looks like the message is trying to tell you that you are shooting and storing the images on the internal buffer, not on a memory card. I'd removed and re-set your CF/SD card and maybe even try another card if possible.
A last resort may be to attach the camera to a computer and see if the images will be stored on the computer when you shoot. I used to do this with a D100 at work, but couldn't tell you how...a search would probably tell you how...use 'tether' and your camera model.
Good luck!

My D80 won't power back on. while taking pictures it shut down, no LCD, no display, no response.

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

The "fEE" error indicates that the camera is not communicating with the lens. The lens may not be attached to the camera properly, or if it has an aperture ring, it may not be set to f22 (or the highest aperture number of the lens) - which is normally marked in orange. Select this aperture and lock it using the aperture locking switch to prevent this from occuring again.

Poor focus

Are you using a DX lens. Do you know if you have the camera's auto focus set to AF (auto focus) or M (manual)? There are many things that effect the focus and as an added note, any shots over 1/60 shutter speed in normal light should be in focus without the need of a tripod.

I shoot a D80 and a D70 and I have excellent results and very clear pictures, I'd be will to bet that either your lens is incompatible with the camera or it's just a setting. I'd be happy to help if you could give more info to your settings.
