Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens
Since the camera focuses in the auto position, we can eliminate the focusing ring assembly as being bad. That leaves the most likely suspect to be the circuit concerned with the P function, which will most likely relate to being a slightly loose ribbon connector within the camera. Since the shutter button allows the camera to focus momentarily, the circuit has to be intermittent, cutting off. Unless you use the P function a lot, you might just be better off working around it. You can reset the ribbon connectors yourself, but of course, you'll have to partially disassemble the camera. You can check with a camera repair shop for an estimate, and then decide if it's worth it.
It could be a trickier problem than I suspect, so the cost of repair could be higher than anticipated. I would contact Nikon Support, just to see if others have reported this problem, then at least you would be pretty sure what you're dealing with. Here is their site:
Nikon is a good company, and you may get some great help from them.
At any rate, good luck, hope this helped, and thanks for using FixYa.

Hi lou. Turn the D80 on and then go into the menu and find reset. RESET it. this will take it back to all of the settings it had when u first opened the box. If the reset does not solve the problem you will have to send it to NIKON or take it to a Nikon sercice Center as any disassembly you do yourself will void the warranty. J.
