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

1 Answer

I have a Nikon D80. Whilst at Yosemite National Park a few weeks ago, where it was extremely cold I noticed that my camera would not take photo. After a few tries, it started working fine again. However, yesterday the shutter started sticking, and the ERR message showed on the screen. Then I can take one photo, and same thing happens again. Is there something I can do with settings, or do you think there may be something wrong with the camera body? I took to a camera shop and they say the lens is OK, and that problem is with the body? I look forward to hearing from you. Many thanks, Ros

Changes in temperature should not affect it unless its about 15 below or at above 55-60C Then there is some delay in taking the picture due to shrinkage in metal part causing lt to be sluggish or in heat to expand the metal and cause some slight jamming. Is it possible the body has been dropped or bumped? By you or some other user? Take off the lens and check that the shutter responds quickly when pressing the button. check it is set to say 1000/sec then at 500 and finally at 2secs, It should be a lot slower at 2 sec than at the other two settings. If there is very little difference then I would suspect an electronic component or a faulty battery level or the whole battery. If it all seems to work OK with the lens off Place the lens back on and do the exercise again. If it fails then the fault IS in the lens mechanism. Thanks for using FIXYA

A flash trigger voltage in the 250V range is fine for most film cameras, but not for most digital cameras. The PE-300 has a trigger voltage in the 33V range, which I (and most others) would consider much too high for the D80.
BTW, "National" is a brand name used by Panasonic.

Hi, Also, try a factory reset found on page 129 of the manual. On the left side of the camera is the terminal cover, inside below the USB connector is the reset switch. If that does not work call Nikon digital 1-800-645-6689.

FEE error code on nikon d80


To solve this all you need to do is turn the lens' aperture ring (the one nearest the camera body) to the smallest number (probably 22 or 32).

Surprising. I can only think that the camera may have caught some condensation if you took it out from a cold place to a warm place (e.g. indoors). You can try to dry it out by putting it 24 hours in a dry box then try again. Also, make sure you are using Nikon batteries when testing it out. Generic batteries are known to die out suddenly after only a few months of use.. and especially if they are subjected to extreme cold

On playback screen of my nikon d80..


When viewing the images you've shot, spin the sub-command knob (front right of camera) to change the photo information you will see. There are a few modes so keep spinning the knob until you find the viewing mode you prefer.

My camera will not take multiple shots


Ok, what you need to do is look at the top of your camera, around that smaller LCD screen. On the right side of the screen, you will see a button with three boxes stacked on top of each other.

You need to press that button until it displays the same icon in the TOP RIGHT corner of the smaller LCD screen right next to the button you are pressing.

That button switches the camera from Single shot mode to Multiple shot mode ( as well as a few other modes).

Send it in for a quote. It should cost the equivalent of $10 USD, more or less, wherever you are. No expert, however talented, can bring a broken sensor back to original shape.

Nikon D80 - Continuous shooting


I will need more info on the settings you are using. It might be that the camera is in a specific mode which is not allowing you to take continuos shots.
