AF not working on Nikon D80

Hi,
I have a Nikon D80 which I bought last year with the 18-55 kit lens and it was working fine until today. I bought a Nikkor 60mm AF and a Sigma 15mm FE AF. I changed it initially to the Nikkor 60mm, and it works fine. When I tried the Sigma, suddenly, it wouldn't AF. I tried changing it back again to the other lenses, and it won't AF too. I reset the camera, but it still won't work! Please help!
Thanks.

    My Nikon D80 has stopped auto-focusing with the AF-S Nikkor 18-200 1:3.5-5.6 G ED after 1 1/2 years of use. I tried cleaning the electrical contacts.

    Same problem except mylens is a sigma 70-300. And the problem began 6 months after owning it. I also had it cleaned by nikon but they couldnt figure out what was wrong with the camera. I have friend with the d40 that has the same problem. very fustrating. I will try you answer and see if it works. I will check back.

My 18-135mm lens on a D80 will not autofocus. My other lenses are fine so it is not the camera?


In AF-S mode, the camera will not shoot until it acquires focus. Look on page 29 of the D80 manual. If that does not help you. Then contact Nikon they will be able to walk you through some steps to see if there is something wrong with the lens. Nikon digital 1-800-645-6689

Iris failure with AF-S Nikkor 18-135mm lens. The iris parts have separated and are visible looking through the lens from the body end.Db0 works fine with another lens.


Hi randywaterer, sorry to hear about the iris. That lens must go to Nikon for repairs. There is nothing you can do to fix it. Sending it to Nikon they will also do a complete CLA as well.

My D80 will not auto focus with any of my 3 Nikkor lenses. It will fire on auto focus when you manually focus while in that auto focus mode.


Press the AF button on the top of the camera (to the right of the window) to select an AF mode & make sure the M/A (Manual / Auto focus) switch on the lens set to "A"

D80 kit 18/135 won't make photos 'F- -' error


Unmount the lens and clean both the camera and lens contacts (the metal strips that connect body with lens) using a pencil eraser. Take care not to let any debris fall into the camera. Mount the lens and try again.

Grainey photos


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

Nikon Auto focus problem with the 18-135 KIT lense


I had this problem and just realised it today. I found out that it was a a settings problem. What I had done without realising was I had my "AE-lock" button functioning as "AF-ON" which meant that my autofocus would only turn on when I held the shutter half-way and pressed that button. Once I turned this function back to its original state of "AF-Lock" as opposed to "AF-ON", it worked fine.
My symptoms were: • soft mechanical noise when holding the shutter (i thought it was trying to focus but couldn't. I thought the mechanics for the AF were faulty) • Couldn't take photos unless they were in the set conditions (which makes sense because it was locked on a certain setting until I pressed the AF-ON button).
My camera is only a few months old so I wasn't convinced it was faulty/broken. Make sure you test all of your settings and go through each of them before you chalk it down to equipment error.
Hope this helps.

Nikon D80 auto focus


I had the same problem but then I realized the lens was not "in" all the way.  It had not clicked into place when I changed lenses.  This might work for you....it did for me.
