D80 battery dies when using larger lens

Is it normal for my D80 battery to run down when using a 70-300 lens? This has just started occurring and it happens to my backup battery as well. Battery stays charged with 18-135 lens.

If your 70-300 lens is using VR and your 18-135 lens is not then this is correct. VR uses a lot of battery juice so you should try to keep it off if you are not using it. Also, try toset auto-focus off also if you are concerned about battery life.

Won't take picture, flashes f--


What lens? If it's a non-CPU lens, this is normal behavior. You'll have to use the Manual (M) mode.

If it is a CPU lens, remove it and clean the contacts. Reattach and give it a little wiggle to engage the contacts.

D80 "battery drained' and "F"sign when pressing release button


Pls make sure of the following:

- You are using original Nikon batteries (generic batteries gave a similar problem to me)
- The aperture ring of your camera is correctly placed

My Nikon D80 sometimes got stuck and won't focus or take pictures at all. I didn't find any 'solution' except for wait for sometime and hope it will 'recover' itself. Anyone has an idea what's going on?


I would try to determine if the problem is in the camera or the lens.

Make sure that the battery is still able to be charged to a level that will operate the camera. If this is the original battery and / or has been used extensively, it may be time to invest in a new rechargeable battery before continuing troubleshooting.

Make sure there is a memory card in the slot. If it is full, clear some room on it.

Perform a "Two Button Reset" on the camera outlined on page 44 of the manual to restore the D80 to factory default. The two button reset is done by pressing the (+/-) key and the (A/F) key (both on top of the camera) at the same time.

Some Nikon lenses are not compatible with every Nikon camera, so that may be a place to start if you're not using a kit lens (you bought the camera and lens together as a kit - not the camera alone as a "body only" sale). Review your manual for a list of lenses that will / will not work with the D80.

Assuming you're using a compatible lens, try swapping the lens to another compatible lens. If you do not have such a lens, bring the camera (preferably w/o the lens you own) to a store that sells lenses for your camera and install the lens on the D80 body. See if the camera functions. If it does, you know that the other lens is most likely the cause of the problem and you'll have to decide whether to repair or replace.

If unable to get to a store that sells lenses, an excellent lens for the D80 is the Nikon 50mm f1.8 prime lens. It gets great reviews and at about $100 is significantly less than 1/2 the cost of the only slightly faster 50mm f1.4 prime lens.

Make sure that the contacts on the mating surfaces of both the camera and the lens are clean. Dirt and dust can interrupt signals sent between the camera and lens.

If still nothing works, you could contact Nikon Support for a solution below:

I hope this helped!

My computer is not reading the memory card. Nikon D80


If you are using a 4GB or higher SD card, some computers cannot read it directly from their in-built SD reader. Buy an external card reader and plug it in. Your computer should now be able to read cards 4GB and larger

RESET Find the two buttons with green dots next to them on the top right of the D80. They are the +/- * and AF * buttons. Hold them both down for a few seconds. The top LCD blinks and everything is back to normal.

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.

Noisy image


Try etting your ISO lower, this camera can take hihger ISO images but at the expense of grain - shoot at 200 for flash and 100 indoors, and since you are looking for better photos play with the apeture settings go with a lower number for a larger apeture, and or slow down the shutter speed to 1/60th (any slower you need a tripod or VR lens) enjoy!
