Question about Cameras

I have been having 2 problems with my Nikon D80. The first one has been going on for a while. It has been saying it a low battery even after charging the battery to full compacity. And buying a new battery. There for it won't let me shoot. For some time, after I turned it off and then back on it would work temporarily, but now that doesn't help The second problem is when shooting on Manuel the F stop does't work, and looks like this, F---. So it won't let me take photos. As well as not able to take photos on any other setting, even Auto. Can these problems be fixed at home or should I send it in? Thanks for your info Jen

Nikon D80 error


The ERR message indicates a camera malfunction. In my D-90 manual it says that it can be cleared by releasing the shutter. The only way to do that is to turn the camera off and back on. Rarely, that won't work and you have to remove and reinstall the battery.


The manual also says that it this have frequently or persist to contact a Nikon authorized service center. I would contact Nikon tech support at www.Nikon.com and discuss the problem them before contacting an authorized service center.

If you turn off your flash you might get a picture or two more,The flash consumes probably 3/4 of the battery.I have Sony,HP,Fuji,and Cannon cameras,they walk thru batteries like they're free for the taking.

D80 "battery drained' and "F"sign when pressing release button


Pls make sure of the following:

- You are using original Nikon batteries (generic batteries gave a similar problem to me)
- The aperture ring of your camera is correctly placed

My Nikon D80 sometimes got stuck and won't focus or take pictures at all. I didn't find any 'solution' except for wait for sometime and hope it will 'recover' itself. Anyone has an idea what's going on?


I would try to determine if the problem is in the camera or the lens.

Make sure that the battery is still able to be charged to a level that will operate the camera. If this is the original battery and / or has been used extensively, it may be time to invest in a new rechargeable battery before continuing troubleshooting.

Make sure there is a memory card in the slot. If it is full, clear some room on it.

Perform a "Two Button Reset" on the camera outlined on page 44 of the manual to restore the D80 to factory default. The two button reset is done by pressing the (+/-) key and the (A/F) key (both on top of the camera) at the same time.

Some Nikon lenses are not compatible with every Nikon camera, so that may be a place to start if you're not using a kit lens (you bought the camera and lens together as a kit - not the camera alone as a "body only" sale). Review your manual for a list of lenses that will / will not work with the D80.

Assuming you're using a compatible lens, try swapping the lens to another compatible lens. If you do not have such a lens, bring the camera (preferably w/o the lens you own) to a store that sells lenses for your camera and install the lens on the D80 body. See if the camera functions. If it does, you know that the other lens is most likely the cause of the problem and you'll have to decide whether to repair or replace.

If unable to get to a store that sells lenses, an excellent lens for the D80 is the Nikon 50mm f1.8 prime lens. It gets great reviews and at about $100 is significantly less than 1/2 the cost of the only slightly faster 50mm f1.4 prime lens.

Make sure that the contacts on the mating surfaces of both the camera and the lens are clean. Dirt and dust can interrupt signals sent between the camera and lens.

If still nothing works, you could contact Nikon Support for a solution below:

Nice camera! I have one too, and really enjoy it. I suspect you are running the original firmware. There is a new firmware version 1.11 that specifically addresses this problem. The download and instruction page is below:

Low Battery Indcator Flashes


You can check the status of your battery, including chargeble life remaining, in the Setup Menu. You need to have the CSM/Setup menu option to display Full menus, not Simple, in order to get battery status. So see if that battery status selection says you need to replace the battery.

Since you can shake the camera to get full battery, it's possible the battery contacts (on the battery or in the camera) are dirty, so check that.

If you do need a new battery, spend the few extra bucks to get a genuine Nikon EN-EL3e from a Nikon dealer. I have learned that many off-brand batteries do not properly implement a needed reserve, and "Genuine Nikon" batteries bought online from non-dealers are often counterfeit, just relabeled junk.

D80 shutter issue


contactjoni,
Your shutter will stick if it gets dirty or dust gets in the camera, a reputable camera shop can inspect the shutter, the sensor for dust & dirt and can clean it for you. If the battery is low while shooting the shutter can also stick on longer exposures.
