Your question is in the title so I cant see your whole question. so I hope this helps.
Im going to guess your lens is not Auto Focusing?
Then First I would make sure the switch on th side is set af for auto focus. then I would check the connection. take the lens off and then reconnect it and make sure you feel or hear it click. if that doesnt work try changing the batteries even if the battery meter says they are good. Sometime the battery meter will get stuck.

I hope that was you question.
If not then contact me and I will answer your other question,

Hi I cannot get my F80 to autofocus. I have tried all my lenses on my Brothers F80 and they all work fine on his camera. I only bought the camera second hand a few days ago and i'm 99% sure when the...

If the gears are stripped, it will require an experienced tech to repair.

That being said, there should be a small switch near the lens mount to switch between auto and manual focus mode's, be sure that that switch is pointing to A. When set to M, the little screw recesses into the mount so it doesn't try to engage, when set to A, it'll extend very slightly.

Also, Nikon has manufactured two types of AF lenses - with the motor in the body and with the motor in the lens, as with most newer lenses. Your camera should have a small screw on the lens mount that drives the focus motor between the lens and the camera, but I'm not 100% certain on that. Your camera can focus lenses with and without this type of coupling. BUT, if that screw/motor in the body is not functioning, you'll only be able to use lenses which contain the focus motor inside them, or manual focus lenses (you can manually focus AF lenses too).

Sigma lens APO170-500mm to fit on SLR camera body

Sigma makes lenses with a variety of mounts to fit a variety of cameras. A lens with a Canon mount won't fit onto a Nikon camera, for example. Assuming the lens has the proper mount for your camera, it should fit fine.

Can't load the film in the F80 leader won't take up

Open the camera-back. Look to the right where the take spool is there is a red mark. The leader should go to the red mark not any more. Now look at the inside of the camera-door, you should see close to the hinge a springy thingy-bob. If that is missing then when you close the door there is nothing to push on the film to seat it. On that spring is a chrome pin as well. Hope this helps you.

Red-Eye Reduction Lamp Is not Work and I cant adjust my lenses easely my camera is nikon F80 and I Have Nikon Lenses 28-100 & 70-300

I own an F70 with similar lenses. I am not fully familiar with the F80, and therefore can't be sure what I am saying will halp, but I believe it is the next model of similar specs as mine. However, from your description, I think what you are saying is that the little red light that flashes, before the photo is taken and when you have the flash mechanism up, is no longer working, and that your camera is haveing difficulty getting a fix on the focus in automatic focus mode?
This red light is not the 'red eye reduction' flash, but rather a red light (so it doesn't make your subjects blink / squint too early) that helps the camera focus: Auto focus mechanisms need light too. If your light has stopped working, then that would explain why the camera can't focus. This should however only occur in low light conditions.
-Obviously, if it's still under warranty - take it back.
-Get it repaired
- OR if that's going to cost too much or you were thinking of doing so anyway, a dedicated flash unit MAY solve the problem. Most flash units have there own red light to aid autofocus. At any rate, you could take it in to a store and test a flash unit in-store to see whether it helps with the problem. If a dedicated flash unit didn't help (make sure you try it in a dark room - ask them to take it into a back room and try it) then it might suggest another problem such as: the camera is failing to send the signal to the red light to flash rather than the light not working. After all, the red light would be an LED, which have extremely long lifespans.

The camera will not support the newer lenses since they have the auto focus motor internally. The lenses do not have the coupler in the mount to match with the camera
