Assuming you're in one of the point&shoot modes (any mode other than the PSAM modes), press and hold the flash button on the front of the camera and turn the main command dial on the back to cycle through the available flash modes. To turn flash off, select the lightning bolt in a circle with a slash through it.

In the PSAM modes the flash will not pop up on its own.

SOURCE: using a speedlight sb800 off camera on a Nikon d80

Depending on what flash you are using, you can set the D80 to work in "commander mode". You will need to use a Nikon SB-600 or SB-800 flash. When you set up the commander mode you can choose what channel to use. You would then set up your flash to run in the same mode on the same channel.

SOURCE: Nikon D80 won't take photos!

The F-- error means that the camera does not think that you have a later AF type lens attached.

If you are using the 18-135mm then the camera is not properly connecting to the lens.
To test this, press the lens release button on the camera and slightly turn the lens as if you are going to release it then turn it back to lock.
This may fix the problem.

If not you can try remounting the lens a few times and if that doesn't work you could clean the lens contacts.

The contacts are the metal studs on the back end of the lens, the bit that goes into the camera.
Sorry if that is too obvious.


If you have an early lens it must be set to the smallest aperture using the ring around the lens.
This will be 22 or 32.
Then lock it using the little lock near the ring.

Good luck!

Nikon D80. When i turn the camera on i cant shoot any photos in the top right corner of the display i get the letter F ee flashing


Page 132 of the D80 manual explains the FEE error: Lens aperture ring not set to the minimum aperture. That would be the largest number which may be 22.

D80 SLR lens /flash prob lem


What are your other lenses? If they're not AF lenses, you're not going to get autofocus or metering.

Is your flash not working when popped up? Remember that the flash won't pop up automatically in Manual mode.

Nikon D80 flash won't pop up


Must be a problem with the flash lock. Try to pop up the flash manually using the flash button located at the top left of the camera beside the flash. If this does not work, you may need to have the cam serviced

Nikon D80. Vivitar 4600 Flash unit


That particular unit is probably not a good choice for the D80 because the trigger voltage (the electricity which flows from the flash through the camera circuits to fire the flash) is 19.5 volts, according to http://www.botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html - this could possibly damage your camera electronics.

You don't have to stick with Nikon brand Speedlights, but get a modern flash which says it is I-TTL compatible for Nikon.

Compare the Nikon d80 to the new d90. Can I use all my manual focus lenses from my Nikon film cameras? Also, all my filters and flashes.


All old lenses will work on the D90 the same way they work on the D80. Filters depend on the lens -- they either fit or they don't -- the camera has nothing to do with that. I wouldn't use old flashes on new DSLRs.

There really is no difference between the D80 and the D90 as far as lenses and flashes are concerned.

Nikon D80 using Bower AF 724AFN


I also purchased a Bower 724AFN to use with my D80, and experience the same problems. Received confirmation from Nikon that this flash unit is not compatible with the camera. I then purchased an SB-600 flash, and haven't looked back. It's worth the extra money for this high quality unit; fully compatible, and compliments the TTL features of the D80. I'll never deviate from original Nikon accessories again.

Nikon d80 won't turn on


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.
