Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My D80 is suddenly dead. I was uploading photos to my computer yesterday. After most of them were uploaded, an error message popped up saying an error kept it from uploading the next one. It kept popping up and none of the remaining photos were transferred. After that, the camera will no longer turn on at all. I made sure then lens was firmly attached, checked the SD card, and changed the batteries, but it will not turn on or respond in any way. No lights, no display readout, nothing. It is totally dead and non-responsive. It wasn't dropped or anything. Have you ever heard of this? The camera is about a year or two old. Thank you.

This is why the pros always use a card reader instead of the camera. When you disconnected the camera, did you remember to use the "safely remove hardware" function? The computer was obviously still trying to write and communicate with the camera and if you just disconnected it, the camera became corrupted. Check your manual for instructions for a camera reset. Try that. Also, remove the card and batteries, press every button, leave it alone for 20 minutes, insert the card and then the batteries, turn it on. Sometimes this works.

    Thank you, it seems to have been a battery issue. Even though I'd already inserted a new battery to no avail, I tried again after recharging, and the second recharged battery worked. For some reason the other one failed, even though it had recharged overnight. (Also, I do normally use a card reader) thank you! All is ok now,

Error message pops up when I try to upload videos to Smilebox. I have windows 7 and downloaded quick time. However the error message says I need to download quicktime.


Did you actually install QuickTime after you downloaded it.
Also check what type of video file you are trying to upload.

Why won't my Samsung PL80 upload my pictures to my computer? It will connect and make that funny noise but then nothing happens ? Yesterday it was perfect just popped up with 'upload you photos and videos'...


Yesterday, did you use the "safely remove hardware" function when you disconnected? If not, that's your problem. It's also why pros never use the camera for downloads....they always use a separate card reader. 23a90a0.jpg

Your problem is happening because of the following causes:
  1. You exceed to allowable video duration. Please check the terms.
  2. You upload a copyrighted video.
  3. As you upload, your internet connection suddenly disrupted that may cause error in your uploads.
