Hi,
Firstly check the ISO setting isnt up high, this will introduce more noise than a lower setting.

A reset may help press and hold the +/- and AF buttons for more than 2 seconds (page 44 of the manual)

else there is a full reset button just below the USB port (page 129 of the manual)
you can download the manual from ftp://ftp.nikon-euro.com/Manuals/ppY_QFonPh/D80-En_05.pdf or
http://services.yesmembers.net/yes/content/D80_en.pdf

Unlikely but possible, depends what you mean by grainy, check the sensor hasnt a fine coating of dust, not on a nikon but I had a kind of grainy effect after photographing in a print works where they used a very fine dust, I foolishly changed lenses and was left with a fine dust coating on the sensor which gave a speckled/grainy effect...

best of luck

TV connection gets very good picture but VCR gets only bad ''grainey'' pic and bad sound. I used RF cables. Will using RCA cables solve the problem? Thanks Guy Daly dalyguy@hotmail.com


You could use 75ohm satalite cable for the RF cables it will give you better signal than the old style co-axial cables most people use. Simply put new co-axial plugs on the new cable and connect that. It will also cut down on electrical intereferance and noise if you use it right up to the antenna. Makes a hell of a difference if you are watching digital TV!

D70 photos not sharp - no matter which lens I use.


D70 produces lovely crisp images as long as the lens is pretty good.  This sounds like a camera body that needs a service.,,

D80 with nikkor 18-200, no picture


raatl, You mean the LCD on the back of the camera right?  The image that shows up (playback) can have the duration changed in the menu settings, it may have been turned off which is a choice as well that mode (not having the LCD on) extends shooting time which used to be a problem with the earl D70 and the earlier battery type.  The D80 doesn't have that issue, try experimenting with how much time you really need to have the display on, if you shoot and like to show the image to people set it longer or just hit the playback a couple of times as you are showing people.

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.

Resolution should be 1280x1024.
Colours 16 bit.
Motherboard drivers installed.
Redo the graphics driver installation by completely removing the current one, and then use the install-CD for the graphics card. The installation could take place while you are in VGA-mode - press F8 during first BIOS-screen - to avoid disturbance.
