Nikon D80 takes picture but wont set off flash

When I take pictures in the auto mode the flash will pop up and do a preview light, but then when I try to take a picture the flash will not go off and the shutter stays open for an increased amount of time, thus causing a very blurry image. The flash is on in the menu. The camera seems to be working fine, except for this. I tried to reset the camera and that did not help.
Please help me!!!

Nikon d80 will not take a picture the letter r flashes


your subject maybe very near that's why the auto mode prevents you from closing the shutter. R just stands for remaining images in the buffer.

On auto my flash wont pop up and it keeps cumming up ro6


In Auto the flash won't pop up unless the camera decides it needs it. Try the P mode.

The r06 isn't an error. It's simply telling you how many more pics you can take in a burst before the buffer fills up.

Lcd screen: lighter images flash from normal to


You are probably viewing the preview screen in "Highlight" mode. To fix this, use the dial button at the back of the D80 and click up (or down) to see another depiction of the preview screen. It will show you different options until you can see the normal picture without the flashing highlights. Hope this helps.

Blurry action pictures


The sport setting uses a faster shutter speed to stop motion. However, if you have the ISO set to a low number and try to take action shots in dim light, they will be blurry. Either use auto ISO or use a higher number such as 400 or 800.

Nikon D80-picture blurry in auto mode


jbenjack,
The D80 has a lot more settings to deal with and depending on the lens the depth of field may explain the blurry background (that is desired effect on a portrait) The view finder on the D80 is for composing the shot and has read outs for the settings. The LCD on the back is for playback and the menus, it doesn't work like a live view of what's being taken (on some newer and more expensive DSLRs it does preview on the big LCD) on smaller point & Shoot cameras that don't have a viewfinder they use the LCD as the viewfinder, does that make sense? If she has the manual you may want to faniliarize yourself with some of the features, start out on one at a time for the different modes so they make more sense, you can really appriciate the camera after that and respect what pro photographers do. The D80 is not a cheap camera and I personally know a couple of professionals that use it among their cameras. (lots of different lenses that cost many time more than the camera body) Have fun with it, and if you get into it you will find you can take some fantastic photos with it. Can you tell that I like that camera?

Dark Picture


I am assuming the following two things.

1. The part was indoors.
2. You are using the 18-135 mm lens with the Nikon D80.

The problem with shooting indoors is that not enough light goes in through the lens to the filter. Solutions:

1. Use the flash with every shot. In case there is not flashlight available, use the on board flash. Press the top button behind the barrel on the camera. It has a lighting icon. It will pop open the flash. If you are in 'P', 'A', 'S' mode, the camera will sync the shutter speed with flash. If the camera is on auto mode (The green camera icon) the flash will pop up and fire by itself.

2. Use the lens with with lowest f stop, i.e. with bigger aperture.

3. Increase ISO. You ought to get usable photographs right up to 800. To change ISO, press the button on the back of the camera which says 'ISO' (Second button from bottom) and turn the primary command dial simultaneously to change ISO setting. Higher ISO speed = Lower shutter speed (But less clarity too).

Hope it helps.

Nikon d 80 flash will not pop up while in auto mode


The flash up button is located on the left hand side of the camera right near the top.   You should use this button to pop up the flash. Prying it up could/has broken this button.
Also, depending on what setting you are using, the flash doesn't always pop up automatically.   Check to see what mode you are in, on the round dial on the left -- ie  Auto, Portrait, Manual, etc.   I can move sometimes without your knowledge, and this may be the problem.
