Make sure you have set the camera to the appropriate mode under the Set Up Menu -- choose NTSC or PAL (for USA it should be NTSC.)  Ensure the proper connections are made to the TV -- Yellow to Video and White to Audio (the camera plays music to accompany your photos).   Make sure your TV is tuned to the proper video channel, which is usually 3.   Now you can turn the camera on.  Now go under the Playback Menu and choose the folder your photos are located in, usually "Current" Now, since there are quite a few options from here, check on page 75 of your manual under Slide Show, and you will see the various options available, such as choosing the music to play.

D80 Monitor does not function as view finder.


To be able to do what you want, your camera would have to have a feature called "live view"....yours does not.

I'm unable to get a full size image on my D80's monitor.


You must have accidentally hit the Thumbnail button while viewing photos (the one with a magnifying glass and 4-way arrow). Press the Playback Zoom button (bottom one with just the magnifying glass) to go back to single frame view. If you keep pressing the Zoom button it will zoom in further on the image you are viewing, and you can use the arrows to move around in it.

There is a message in front of my picture on the monitor


When viewing pictures in playback mode, simply turn the index finger dial (up by the shutter button) and this will change the 'mode' in which you view the pictures and should eventually get you to a setting where this information disappears.

Can't turn off/disable optimize image screen- nikon d80


Ok, all you need to do is:

1.Hold the camera normally like you would take a picture.

2.Turn it on and review a picture.

3. While looking at a picture, take your index (pointer) finger and rotate the front "wheel" right under the shutter release button. This switches the viewing mode, and should solve your problem.

The Monitor on my Nikon D80 does not show any image when I try to take a picture - The viewfinder is ok and the camera takes a picture ok and displays it for about 4 seconds on the monitor after taking it....


You can switch it off so as not to show the picture after you take one.

You cannot use the monitor to show images as you're taking them. The D80 does not have a Live View capability.
