Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens
f-- meaning that the aperture is locked to smallest aparture. this is because the camera didnt receive aperture information from the lens, and the body cant send signal to lenses regarding the aperture value. The problem here is the contact point.This problem always happen to Plastic mount lens like the 18-135mm kits len. Somehow after long use the plastic mount had weaken a bit that enough to make the contact not really contacted....
Remove the lens. Try to clean the contact point at the lens. Then mount it back. It should be okay. if still happen, try thighting more, until the f-- disapear. If that wouldnt happen, then u should consider metal mounting lenses. hehe
it is advised to buy metal mounting lens.

Hey there 09mbann, the problem seems to be that you have the camera in Aperture priority setting, and is therfore looking for a setting which you have failed to give it. Try setting the camera to fully auto mode, ensuring both the body and lens are set to auto. This should allow you to take pictures, when focused. I would suggest you spend some time with the manual, in order to fully appreciate your camera and it's features. I hope it helps. Good Luck!

Try removing and re-installing the lens. If that doesn't do it, give the lens a little extra twist in either direction. The contacts may not be lining up just right. If still no better, take the lens off the body and inspect the contacts at the top of the lens opening in the body, and also the contact points on the upper portion of the lens mounting flange. Gently clean with some alcohol and a cotton swab.
