Hi.

The camera is in error mode.

Try pressing and holding down both the AF mode button (the one labelled AF) , and the exposure compensation button (The one marked +/-).
Hold down for a couple of seconds and the display will reset.

If the error occurrs again, then there is a problem with the camera. A common fault causing the problem is a defective shutter mechanism. Try mounting different lens if possible, and see if that can fix the problem. Also remove SD card and replace batteries.
If that does not fix the problem, call Nikon at 1-800-NIKON-UX (or ringing your local Nikon support number if you live outside US). In that case the camera needs repair. You can also get a quote from a third party service here:Repair.

Regards.

Ginko.

Hi Jeff - The manual describes "Err" as a general error, a "Camera malfunction" and says "If error persists, consult with Nikon-authorized service representative." (Bottom of page 132 in the english version of the manual.)

Some folks have had mixed results with removing / mounting the lens once or twice, charging the battery and cleaning the contacts of both the lens and camera body's lens opening. More odten than not though - the camera has to go back to Nikon for repair. it appears that the shutter is replaced and things go back to working just fine again.

I would contact Nikon directly to learn if there are things they would like you to attempt before arranging for service of your D80.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply. Thanks.

Flashing err when try to take picture


Try to pull out the battery, wait for a while and put the battery back. Turn the camera on. If the 'err' does not disappear, try resetting the camera with the reset button. If any of this won't help, take the camera to the authorized Nikon dealership for repairs.

You have not provided enough information, what is the error read? If it shows ERR then: The ERR message is not a good thing. Read page 132 of the D80 Manual. 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.

Is there a memory card in the camera?

Also try cleaning the contacts on the lens (light rub with a pencil eraser works).
