As its a dSLR your sensor may need cleaning see http://www.cleaningdigitalcameras.com/

In regards to spots on sensor, note the color and whether they are in focus or out of focus.
Put the body cap on and shoot a 4 seconds exposure and look at the dark image. All cameras have dead pixels but the ones we see on the images are clusters of dead pixels in a small group.

Your problem could be dust on the sensor and try to clean it carefully. Note if the spots are in focus or not, this will tell you which side of the filter the dust spots are on.

Good luck and if you need my help contact me.

I assume you have tried cleaning the lens? You may have dead pixels, contact your warranty provider if you think that's the case.

It might be caused by some dirt on your lens (either front or rear element) but is more likely to be dust on the cameras sensor.

There are a couple of sample images of what this looks like here and here.

Dust spots typically have a softish edge to them and affect more than 1 pixel. (if it is just the 1 pixel affected, which a very sharp edge, this could be a defective sensor).

Following the instructions in the manual for cleaning the sensor. Avoid touching the sensor (unless it is with a specialist sensor cleaning brush) and avoid cans of compressed air; use a hand-blower brush instead.

Hi nrkelkar, In the D80 manual page 36 it speaks about the buffer. What you see as an error message is r with a number. The number is how many shots the buffer at that moment can handle. It is not an error message.

Hi, My Nikon D80 is now kaing over exposed


This can happen if you have ISO control set to Auto and have spot metering selected, especially if it's set to spot shadow or spot highlight. Over exposure probably means it's set to spot shadow metering.

With spot metering the camera measures exposure from just a very small point in the scene, and so slight camera movements will cause the metering spot to wander onto different exposure settings very easily. If the camera is either set to use restricted apertures or shutter speeds due to program or lens limitations then it will compensate by adjusting the ISO settings instead

Never use auto ISO, just choose what you need for the conditions rather than using the camera's best (& usually poor) guess. Alsonever use spot metering unless you know why you're using it. The default multi-pattern metering is extremely accurate for most situations.

Please check the camera settings based on what I've said, if it fixes your problem then please rate my answer. If not then please add further details of which lenses and camera settings you're using and I'll try to help you further.

A black spot keeps appearing in my photos nikon D80


It seems that there is some dust particle on the sensor. Try cleaning the sensor as per the instructions in the manual and then check. In case the spot still appears, then the CMOS sensor might be damaged / burned out and you will need to replace it.

Nikon D80 - Continuous shooting


I will need more info on the settings you are using. It might be that the camera is in a specific mode which is not allowing you to take continuos shots.

Spot on every shot


Your sensor may have gotten dust on it to confirm this, set camera to a small aperture eg. f22 and take a picture of a white page then set camera to a large aperture eg f3.3 ant take the same picture. If it is dust you will see the spot on the shot taken at f22 and not the one taken at f3.3. This can be solved by having the sensor cleaned. If the gray spot is on both images you most likely have a damaged sensor
