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

1 Answer

Monitor display has switched off!

Can anyone help here - going out to big birthday party tonight and the monitor on my Nikon D80 has just gone out! Works fine on menu settings and on playback just no display on 'ON' mode. Can't seem to find how to rectify this anywhere in manual so would be VERY grateful if someone could help me.
Thanks

    There isn't supposed to be anything on the monitor while you're taking pictures. How did you use the camera before? Didn't you look through the viewfinder?

Having received no response in over a month, I assume this is no longer a problem.

Nikon Coolpix S9400 - the monitor has gone blank, although camera is not "dead".


The Display is OLED and when it is off it is really OFF.
FYI:
This camera has FIVE (5) Brightness levels for the display. The Brightness is usually set in the TOOL (wrench) menu.

If you are positive the batteries are good, fresh and or fully charged it is MY OPINION that the camera is non functional. The Viewfinder is critical for camera operation. Sorry I am not much help here it seems this camera needs either repair or replacement.

I have a nikon d80 for the the last couple of years the live view on the monitor has worked ok. ie when i switch on the camera the monitor shows what i am about to shoot. Tonoght this feature stopped...


Apparently there was something seriously wrong with your camera, which has now fixed itself. Nikon didn't put the LiveView feature into the their DSLRs until the D3 and the D300, which were released after the D80. The more recent D90 has this feature, but not the D80.

How can i used the LCD monitor during taking pictures? as of present i am only using the viewfinder? pls help me set my cam...


The D80 does not have the LiveView feature to allow using the LCD monitor for taking the picture. Nikon introduced this feature with the D3 and D300, which came out well after the D80. You have to use the viewfinder.

Sorry if this wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's just the way this camera works.

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.

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.

Monitor does not stay on


The LCD monitor screen at the back of the camera does not display a live picture like many point-n-shoot digitals. It only displays after the pic is taken. Use the LCD on the top cover to check your settings. Please leave feedback if this helps.

LCD monitor doesn't work


I'm uncertain of your problem, but you are aware that the LCD screen on the D80 doesn't open physically as some do.   Also, you will not see any live images on the screen, only after you have taken a shot.
