I had the same problem. After e-mailing customer service and finding no help, I took the case off the camera and traced the wiring from the buttons to the circuit board. I unplugged the wires from the circuit board and plugged them back in. Everything is working like new! You'll need a small screwdriver set and something to keep your screws in. They are tiny and easy to lose.

The FUNC button in the D80 does not work


In the menu settings, you need to assign the Func button to do something. The Func button alone will not operate until you assign a task. The tasks available are listed in the menu setting for the Func button.

Problem with nikon coolpix 8700


Same problem that would not allow me to take a picture without pressing the LOCK button on my Nikon 8700. Here is how I believe I fixed the problem:

Turn the camera ON.

Press MENU button on your camera to bring up the menu.

Scroll down to SET-UP, open the SET-UP menu by scrolling right.

In the SET-UP menu, scroll all the way down to FUNC (Controls) on page 2/3 , open the FUNC (Controls) menu by scrolling right.

You are now presented with 2 options:FUNC and AE-L, AF-L)

Select the FUNC option by right scrolling.

Choose the 2nd option: i.e the mountain, flower and timer icon (distance, macro and self-timer icon) by right scrolling.

Press the MENU button to get out of the menu.

Attempt to take a picture without pressing LOCK.

Should work! Anyways, it worked for me.

Cheers.
