Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens
Help!! My D80 when used with a full battery is showing the battery is full then after a shot is flashing empty. I have tried this with four batteries, two one year old and two brand new. It gets worse, my original body is only a year old when this problem started. I am travelling at the moment and only had two days in london to fix the problem but nobody could help me. In my desperation at the thought of travelling for another four months with out a camera I bought another body only to discover this problem happening all over again. I'm at my wits end. Please help!!
I just went to Nikon USA's website and they now have a firmware fix for this issue!
Modifications enabled with upgrade of A and B firmware to 1.11

I dealt with the same issue a couple years ago - replace your charger. It didn't make sense to me either until I realized that the only thing 8 batteries and 2 cameras had in common was one charger.
That should do the trick. Let me know if there's anything more I can do for you, and please don't forget to rate fixya.

The battery flashing just started for me too. To "fix" it, I took the battery back out, turned the camera on and off a few times (with the battery out), put the battery back in and it worked.

I have the sampe problem but I noticed that this is an issue only with the AF-S Lenses and does not happen with the screw drive focus lenses

This is a wide-spread problem and the most plausible cause proposed is bad connection between the body and the lens. Try to carefully clean the electrical lens contacts on both the lense and the body.

Don't replace the charger! I have the same issue using two batteries and two differnent chargers. Contact Nikon customer support. The false low battery issue is an issue that several others are experiencing.
