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.

D80 LCD not responding and Focusing Issue


If you were not half-pressing the shutter button when you turned on the camera, then you may need to have this problem serviced.

LCD being unresponsive also seems like a servicing type problem.

I don't think your shutter count of 5000 is an issue as I know a lot of people with more shutter counts who do not face this issue. Its likely that the cam was dropped or exposed to the elements so it needs to be serviced

LCD on - view image prior to taking photo


The feature you are referring to is called "Live View mode".

This is NOT available on the Nikon D80, and was only introduced on the D90, which is available now.

Live View mode allows you to use the LCD screen as your view finder instead of using the eyepiece, but unfortunately, this feature is not available in your model.

Monitor does not show images in focus


Impossible. The D80 is an SLR which means there is a real shutter curtain blocking the imaging array, essentially 'blindfolding' the array.It cannot see the image until the shutter is opened. Nikon just introduced a new SLR that can do live view mode, if you want to spend a couple of grand.

Deh778 question about Rgb histogram not turning off.


If you haven't solved the histogram issue by pressing the multi selector up or down or rotating the sub-command dial to choose photo information display then OK.  The D80 is a very reliable "prosumer" camera meaning it's more than a consumer model offering better quality and features commonly found on professional camera models, if you are a budding photographer and desire more control over the images you take and the options to take creative images working with the amount of light, the shutter speed and may other aspects the pros do then it's worth it, if those features are not important then having all the control might be a problem if that isn't what you are after.  Early digital cameras were pretty poor quality and could never compare to film cameras, even the early model D70 had some issues with battery life.  Take the time to learn about this camera and you will be very happy.  I know several professional photographers who use the D80 and find Nikon stands behind the camera.  If you have any other specific problems or issues let me know, I'd be glad to go over them.

D80 shutter is stuck


Followed the mirror lock procedure as outlined in the manual for cleaning the sensor. That solved the problem.

Nikon d80, setting not remembered


I'm thinking it's an internal problem - probably needs fixing at Nikon. I can't think what else you can do.

Control Panel display no information.


Do you mean the control panel on top or the big LCD on the back?

The display on top should be showing you stuff like the shutter speed and aperture as you take the picture.

The display on the back will not show you the picture while you're taking it. The D80 does not have a Live View capability.

LCD monitor doesn't work


I'm uncertain of your problem, but you are aware that the LCD screen on the D80 doesn't open physically as some do.   Also, you will not see any live images on the screen, only after you have taken a shot.
