Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

2 Answers

Nikon D80 with 400 IS lens

At times when I press the upper left view button to redisplay a picture that has timed out the picture does not reappear and the battery level indicator shows fully discharged and is blinking. A new fully charged battery does the same thing. If I turn the camera off completely and then back on I can then redisplay a picture with the view button but the same problems recurrs after a few more shots. Ted

    I have tried alternate good batteries. I am going to try another lens as it may be the contacts on this lens not making full connection at all times. Thanks for your help. Ted

    Thank you Canada Bruce. I currently have the camera at a local repair shop awaiting diagnosis. Expect an answer on Tuesday. Sorry I can not try your recommended fix right now. it sounds very plausible. Thank you very much for your suggestions. Ted

Try a reset of the camera, and also reformat the SD card.  Then, turn the camera off and back on.  
Check you battery info under the set-up menu, when you can see if the life of the battery may be too old.
Good luck.

Somehow my camera, a Nikon D60, is now displaying 4 smaller pictures on the monitor vs the full screen picture I just took. How can I change it back? I cannot find an answer in the instruction manual,...


You pushed the wrong button! On the left side of the LCD display, there are four buttons. One is labeled "ISO" and the other "QUAL". In the viewing mode, these buttons are used to allow you to scan multiple frames at one time. Each time you press the ISO button, it increases the number of images displayed. Each time you press the QUAL button it reduces the number of images displayed.

Zoom on nikon d5100


In either mode, you're zooming by turning the zoom ring on the lens? In live view mode, if you zoom in by pressing the magnifying glass button, all you're doing is zooming the display, not the image itself.

If you're seeing multiple thumbnail pictures, press the zoom-in button (marked with a magnifying lens symbol) one or more times. Alternatively, pick one picture and then select the OK button at the center of the cursor pad.

My nikon D5000 monitor is dark and i have to look through the viewfinder to see the scene i want to take a picture of. monitor works fine to view taken pictures and in filming mode. why? and how can it be...


The Nikon D5000 must be set in "Live View" mode before you can use the rear monitor to take photos. There is a button that says "LV" to the right of the LCD screen that sets Live View to on or off.

I have turned camera on and set up to take a photo and the shutter release button will not press in to take the photo. I used the camera yesterday and it worked fine!


Turn the camera on and look into the view finder while you try to press the shutter button. Check the information in the view finder to see whether you are getting an error message. If you see an error message in the view finder, remove the lens cap and proceed to take a photograph but, instead of pressing the shutter button this time, press the button near the top of the camera on the back which says "AF/AE. If the camera takes the photo it means you have somehow initiated the auto focus/auto exposure lock which the camera will not override when attempting to take a photo using the shutter button. When you use the AF/AE button, you override this system. To remedy this issue, when you get the error message try pressing the shutter button again. Also, remove the lens to see if the shutter inside has frozen in the "locked" position. If you find this to be the case you will need to contact Nikon Customer Support. The link for Nikon Support is below. The numbers are half-way down the page.

RGB Histogram will not turn off.


It's not hard... I had the same problem, but I found this solution on the internet and it worked.
First turn on the camera and press the play button.
You are now viewing your picture with the histogram.
Use the same joystick looking kind of button that you use to scroll left and right through the pictures, but instead of going left and right, go UP OR DOWN. That scrolls through the different display settings.

Hope that helps!
