Dropped camera shutter doesn't work but video does


Did you remove the battery and replace it after a few moments? this will "reboot" the camera, like a cold boot from a computer. Then try again. I can't believe a landing on the carpet would cause mechanical problems, but you never know.
Could be just a setting, and that will be restored after the boot.

So I assume you have changed the batteries and made sure there isn't any corrosion on the contacts. If your mirror is flipping up but no shutter, it sounds like a bad shutter. Check the shutter from the back, then from the front behind the mirror. Look for abnormalities or residue. It is a great camera and uses standard batteries (!) but the 1/2000 shutter has a half life like any other SLR. If you are going to throw it out you may want to open the back and use a q-tip to drip a couple drops of 90% alcohol on the top and bottom (and sides) of the shutter. As a last ditch, I throw cameras or lenses in the toaster oven at 200° for 10 min. and retry (take out batteries and film). At the least it will kill any fungus at the worst it hardens some lubricants. It does make you feel like you are doing some specilized scientific work before you toss it in the trash.

Flash doesn't work


don't drop a D80. wrap the fabric clipped onto the camera (say for hanging around your neck, which is a bad idea because of heat.) around your wrist two to three times, EVERY time you use it.

What you describe is the symptom of a stuck shutter. The shutter is inside the lens and must close in order for the image sensor to properly record the image. Yours is stuck open, and that is why you see the lines across your images. When a stuck shutter results from an impact it usually requires full disassembly and manual re-setting of the delicate shutter blades. This problem would require professional repair. Unfortunately damage from an impact is not covered by your factory warranty. You can find good repair services on the internet who can service your camera. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
