The D80 does not use the LCD screen to take images. The screen is only used to review images and use the menu system to check or change camera settings. When shooting, you need to use the viewfinder above the screen.

I have the NIKON D80 and I have lost my menu, I can take pictures but I can not change anysettings. Any sugestion?


You might try shooting with the camera set on manual IF you can read the aperture and shutter speed settings. But, the fact is...if you can't access your menu the camera is one-step from being totally useless. You need to contact Nikon support to see if it might be possible to fix the problem by downloading the current firmware version. Unfortunately, I think his situation will require sending the camera to an authorized Nikon service center for a repair but contact Nikon support first at www.Nion.com.

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 have a Nikon D80 DSLR and want to know if I can use the LCD screen for shooting rather than the view finder


No. The LiveView capability is a relatively new development in DSLRs. Nikon first introduced it with their D3 and D300 cameras, followed by the D90 which also introduced HD video capability.

Where's the shooting information of d80 in the larger screen?


The Shooting Information screen was introduced with the D40. The older D80 does not have it. Instead it shows almost all of the information in the control panel and/or viewfinder, though you have to delve into the menus for some of it.

Most of the settings you could change via the Shooting Info screen on the D40, you can change by pressing the appropriate button and turning one of the command dials.

The D40 was intended as an introductory dSLR, doing more handholding for new photographers, putting things into visual, menu-driven screens. The D80 was intended as a midlevel camera, allowing faster operation using more buttons. It does less handholding, but once you learn where the controls are, it actually is faster to use. (Okay, that was based on my personal experience, since I've used both.)

When the camera is turned on view window is not lit up viewing is dark and grey hard to focus but still takes a good picture?


Do you mean the viewfinder or the lcd-screen?
The Nikon D80 does not have a 'live-view' mode to watch the picture you're about to take on the LCD-screen. It's a semi-professional camera not to be used like a standard 'point-and-shoot' digital camera.
If it is the viewfinder that's out of focus, try adjusting the dial to the right of the viewfinder. It might also be that your internal mirror doesn't get powered (in this case you're unable to see the focus areas). In the last case you will have to get the camera serviced by Nikon.

Nikon D80, how do you turn off the r09, r11 and/or r17 alert (depending which Image Quality setting I have the camera set to)? I have sent the camera back to Nikon twice and twice it has come back with the...


The r09, r11 or r17 just tells you how many pictures you can shoot before the internal memory buffer is full. It's not an error message, and I don't think there's any way to turn it off.

LCD monitor doesn't work


I'm uncertain of your problem, but you are aware that the LCD screen on the D80 doesn't open physically as some do.   Also, you will not see any live images on the screen, only after you have taken a shot.

Nikon D80 - Continuous shooting


I will need more info on the settings you are using. It might be that the camera is in a specific mode which is not allowing you to take continuos shots.

Nikon D80 Prints


Have you had the picture printed at a local photo lab. Try that and see if it's your computer/printer matching.

You may have to see if the Camera is set for Adobe RGB (or RGB) and your computer/printer is set for Adobe RGB or sRGB. These need to match. There's a new world with color matching that the point and shoot don't do.


Hope this helps. I could regurgitate all about Color Matching, but why when someone else has it all written out.
