SOURCE: Nikon D80 auto focus

Just like ladylaine, above, I had this same problem suddenly today. After fiddling with all the settings and just about assuming I'd have to send it in for service, I found this page, read her suggestion, and turned my lens all the way counterclockwise. Sure enough, a tiny click and now it's working fine. It just had become slightly unseated somehow.

Hi taylorrm, I don't know if you have a solution to this but sometimes the AE-L/AF-L but gets pushed which is the auto focus lock button then the shutter release button cannot be used to focus and yu have to reset by pressing it again.  Even though it's confusing at first it's a feature along with the AE/AF Lock to try out to lock your focal area on a subject prior to shooting.
To sbhoward5, check to make sure the switch on the camera body is switched to AF instead of M mode(looking at the front it's on the lower right hand side below the lens release button), which sometimes happens when changing the lens - so then the mode selected is in P,S,A, or M modes on the mode dial. happy shooting,

Try cleaning the lens contacts with alcohol or sprit

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!

When i take picture,the picture is white n some time become very very bright, but if take video is ok.


this can be usually associated with your white balance in still camera mode.
Check to see your white balance is set correctly or just set it to auto. Also make sure the mode you are in it set. (ie. indoor, outdoor, auto, speed)

Have Nikon D80 with 18-200VR lens. Am getting consistently overexposed pictures. Kindly advise. Thank you


Please check your exposure value (EV) settings. You may have raised this and forgot to move it back.

You should be able to play with exposure also via the Shutter, Aperture and ISO settings

Hello,

If this is the same as my Nikon this is the overexposed highlight display option.
This shows areas of the photograph that are overexposed slightly.

On my Nikon I use the up and down arrows on the back to cycle the LCD display options.
Stop when you get a display that does not flash.

As for the focus problem check if you have set the front control to AF not M, also check if the lens is set to A not M.
