    Is the r09 actually preventing you from taking pictures? Normally this is simply an informational indicator of the number of pictures you can take in the current burst before the buffer fills up.

    Thanks, for your respond, it doesnt allow me to take picture in auto.

  • kakima Jul 14, 2010

    When you say "auto" do you mean the Automatic exposure mode or the Autofocus?

    Try taking everything off automatic. Turn the exposure dial to M, turn off autofocus either on the body or the lens. Looking carefully at the display, slowly press the shutter release button. Does the r09 (or some other number) reappear? Does the shutter fire when you press it all the way down?

Try resetting all features back to default to see if that will clear it up. Your manual will have these instructions.
otherwise you can check out this repair https://www.teleplancamerarepair.com/quote/cart.asp?iProbID=33&mo=96
error codes are quite common in most cameras and they all have different meaning. this is a great camera by the way.

Nikon d80 problem (err flashing with r09 in the lcd display)


I belive this isn't a fault but more to do with how you are using the camera. The r09 message is to do with the camera buffer and how many more pictures it can hold. You do have a memory card installed, right? The r09 is normally not an error, but simply an indicator of how many more pictures you can take in the current burst before the buffer fills. The number will vary according to the image quality and size settings.

My d 80 gives an err message on the lcd and r 09 is flashing on it, the shutter just clicks and makes the sound but no picture taken, i am frustrated please help


The r09 just tells you how many pictures you can shoot before the internal memory buffer is full. It's not an error message2_bing.gif. If the camera isn't taking a picture, then it's something unrelated to the R09 message. If the shutter clicks, then it probably IS taking a picture.

In S mode camera wont take a pic, r09 comes on screen


The r09 is just the display that tells you how many pictures you have in the memory buffer for shooting in continuous mode. There are a few reasons why it might not take a pic in S, but normally it's when it's not in focus. Maybe you have it pointed at something too close for the lens to focus. It also could be that your shutter speed setting is way too fast for the available light.

In S mode, the camera will use your shutter speed setting and adjust the aperature to match the light. If it can't get enough light at the shutter speed set, then it won't expose. Keep in mind this isn't just for exposures that are close to being right, only when the shutter speed is so fast or slow that the exposure isn't in the ballpark.

Try moving your shutter speed up or down.

R09 shows up when I try to take a picture. Cannot access preview screen. Camera seems frozen.


R09 or R07 etc. is not an error message. In Nikon lingo ERR is the one you need to worry about. The RXX refers to the approximate amount of shots left in the buffer in the camera. Not a ptoblem. You may be trying to take pictures faster than your memory card / camera buffer can handle.

You can try a fster card like 266, but you may find that the camera is also your limitattion.

If you make no changes at all, the camera buffer will eventually clear and you can again takes pictures.

R09 error message on nikon d40


It's a report saying that the camera is busy doing something. It can hapen when you have taken a photo and the camera is busy processing but I find it happens when in auto focus and the camera is having dificulty due to distance from subject or light. Try switching to manual focus, moving further away from the subject or casting more light on the subject.

Lens won't autofocus


Check that the electrical contacts on the lens and camera body are clean, and that the lens is mounted fully and correctly to the camera, i.e. no damage or dirt in the mounts. If these are all okay, it is looking like an internal problem with the lens's focus motor, or possibly something jammed in the lens.

If possible, try the lens on another camera body. Alternatively, you could switch the camera to a manual focus mode (or a mode that doesn't require focus confirmation) and see if you can take a picture.

This pretty much rules out what you can do for yourself I'm afraid. If you still have no luck, you will probably need to take it to a camera store for inspection / repair.

(Incidentally, the R09 is not actually an error message. It means that you have 9 shot capacity in the camera buffer before it will fill up. It sounds as if the camera is set to an auto-focus mode that requires focus confirmation before the shutter will fire which is why you're seeing the message.)

The r codes just indicate that you have that many shots in the image buffer. It is not an error indication.  Depending on the mode, the camera either will or will not allow you to take the shot when the image is out of focus.  Make sure the lens is set to A for auto, and try to focus on something outside in good light with lots of detail.  It sounds just like you aren't actually getting a good focus lock.
