Question about Nikon Digital Cameras

1 Answer

I heard a "pop" noise w/ my Nikon D80, while trying to take a photo. It is only a year and 3 mos. old. I can't get the flash to work. Could it have burned out and is this something I can replace myself?

    It is the on that came w/ the camera, I dropped it a long time ago and had it fixed by a Nikon certified tech., he was great and he replaced a ring in the lens motor AF component.
    The noise was a pop like when a bulb breaks.
    I would appreciate any help, I am near a best buy where I bought it from and does anyone know how much something like this costs or how long it would take?

    i think u have dropped it once.

    also the flash is the one that is attached with camera or the external flash


  • dewan nafees ahmed Jun 10, 2008

    if the bulb has broke this would cost really heavy. nearly more than 50$ surely.

    u know one fact.

    (cost of parts of camera individually) * 4 ==== total cost of camera.

    and if this is under warranty u wont be charged anything.

    number of days may vary
    depending upon the service center u take it.

    it may take from one day to 4 days maximum.


  • dewan nafees ahmed Jun 10, 2008

    if bulb is broke it may be due to faulty batteries or power section.
    ensure that you have a good quality batteries.

    if this is under warranty cover then u dont have to worry. just replace it. else read on.

    this part can cost more than 50$ and less than 150$. (depending upon place you live)

    one small fact for you

    (cost of camera parts individually) * 4 === total cost of camera.

    number of days for repair would range from 1 to 4 days.

    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.

Hi, Also, try a factory reset found on page 129 of the manual. On the left side of the camera is the terminal cover, inside below the USB connector is the reset switch. If that does not work call Nikon digital 1-800-645-6689.

D80 SLR lens /flash prob lem


What are your other lenses? If they're not AF lenses, you're not going to get autofocus or metering.

Is your flash not working when popped up? Remember that the flash won't pop up automatically in Manual mode.

Left hand buttons don't work. They act like a half-pressed shutter button. IE: they focus and usually pop the flash. The camera takes pics fine, the two button reset and the tiny pinhole reset on the side...


You did what I would suggest to do the resets. I realize this is an old question, 1 year ago, but, if you have not found a solution my suggestion is to contact Nikon. The D80 is a fine camera.

Nikon D80 flash won't pop up


Must be a problem with the flash lock. Try to pop up the flash manually using the flash button located at the top left of the camera beside the flash. If this does not work, you may need to have the cam serviced

Nikon D80 - My (built in) Flash will not pop up.


That is just a mechanical problem. There is just a little hook holding the flash and it retracts when you push the bottom to pop up the flash. I'm sure it can be easily fixed, never the less your camera store or Nikon should take care of it. So take it back to the place you bought it.
