    I just bought new Nikon D80. When I on the camera, the display control panel does not give any indication. My viewfiinder is working fine and I can take picture, but the control panel does not give any detail info just like the viewfinder.



    Please help!

    Half the time I turn on my 1-year old Nikon D80, the LCD flashes "OFF" and the camera will not function. After turning it off and on a few time, either it flashes "ERR" or works normally.

Pcog3 & Guests,
Check to make sure (before you turn aon the camera) that the SD card is seated and lens is completely in the right position, if it's not the camera will malfunction and stay or turn off. The last guest that doesn't have info on the LCD can turn the menu items back on in the settings preferences.

Everything on control panel is flashing. Can't operate camera.


Hi Shirley,

It sounds like your camera's CPU is stuck in a loop. First, I'd remove and transfer any pictures on the SD card in a card reader connected to your computer, followed by formatting the card. Leave the SD card out of the D80. Set the power switch on the D80 to "off" and install a freshly charged battery. If it is still flashing, a "Full Reset" may help.

Nikon recommends that a full reset be done only under direction of Nikon staff. The procedure is outlined along with graphics on this page under "Full reset". I suggest calling Nikon support to see if they think this procedure (or maybe another that they have) will solve the problem.

Using canon Speedlite 300TL on Nikon D80 camera


The Canon Speedlite will work, but you won't get the full functionality of a Nikon Speedlight. Most importantly you won't get the through-the-lens metering.

Nice camera! I have one too, and really enjoy it. I suspect you are running the original firmware. There is a new firmware version 1.11 that specifically addresses this problem. The download and instruction page is below:

I have a problem with the d80 Nikon, sometimes the batteries fail it show me empty, but when i turn it off and then turn it on it show me the batteries is full.


Your camera has a built in diagnostic computer. When Nikon gets the camera it connects the camera to a computer to checks for faults much like modern day cars. There is nothing you can do other than try another battery or send into Nikon. Batteries like camera can be bad.

Low Battery Indcator Flashes


You can check the status of your battery, including chargeble life remaining, in the Setup Menu. You need to have the CSM/Setup menu option to display Full menus, not Simple, in order to get battery status. So see if that battery status selection says you need to replace the battery.

Since you can shake the camera to get full battery, it's possible the battery contacts (on the battery or in the camera) are dirty, so check that.

If you do need a new battery, spend the few extra bucks to get a genuine Nikon EN-EL3e from a Nikon dealer. I have learned that many off-brand batteries do not properly implement a needed reserve, and "Genuine Nikon" batteries bought online from non-dealers are often counterfeit, just relabeled junk.
