Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

1 Answer

Monitor does not stay on

I have set the monitor to turn off after one minute of inactivity, so it should turn on with the camera, but the monitor only turns on for the 3 seconds of image review after taking a picture.

I don't mind using the viewfinder, but seeing what my settings are onscreen is useful.

The LCD monitor screen at the back of the camera does not display a live picture like many point-n-shoot digitals. It only displays after the pic is taken. Use the LCD on the top cover to check your settings. Please leave feedback if this helps.

Screensaver will not turn on after inactivity


This is an adjustment made in the control panel under I believe Display. From there you will have an option for Screen Saver. It should all be in there.

Monitor won't stay on


The problem maybe with the settings in your computer. Check if the screen savers are off and also make sure that the computer doesn't turn the display unit off after some time of inactivity.

Viewsonic monitor stays on for only 3-5 minutes and goes off . Then I turn it off an wait and it comes back on!!! what is going on??


I guessing that when you say "goes off" you mean it goes into power-saving mode? Assuming that you're working on the computer at the time (so it's not actually going to power saving mode from inactivity), this might indicate one of two things:
a) the VGA cable to the computer is not in a good contact with the monitor. This might happen if you haven't used the screws to fix it in place, just try to plug it fully in on both ends (computer and monitor). If the monitor sees to VGA signal, it goes into power saving mode automatically.
b) there's a problem with the monitor that builds up after a few minutes. When you turn it off, it "cools down" and can be used again. If that's the case, you should take it to a dealer's shop and have it checked (or replaced if it's still under warranty).

My computer keep shuting saying monitor going to


start button >settings >control panel > Power Option > set time for monitor to sleep if inactive...if you dont want the computer to sleep go up to the hibernate tab and uncheck it. If you want the computer to stay on regardless, move all drop down menus to "never" instead of a time.

Monitor shuts off after inactivity


Hi maggieis,

I wouldn't worry about your monitor powering off after 30 min. It's just responding to the power management settings that are configured from within Windows.

These settings can be changed so that your monitor always stays on (if you want) but the current setting is set to help save energy by turning off the monitor when no one is using the computer.

So, no worries...that's just normal Windows behavior.

Hope that helps,

Michael

Camera will pan to an area but will not stay there.


Most PTZ cameras have an "inactivity" setting. If no command inputs are entered into the keypad for a programmed amount of time, typically between 30 seconds - 5 minutes, the camera will return to it's pre-set position. You should be able to turn this off in the camera programming. A good way to test to see if this is the problem would be to point the camera to an area, then make very tiny adjustments to the direction every 2-3 seconds. If the camera does not go to the pre-set, then inactivity is turned on. Also, point the camera to an area and time how long before it returns to pre-set. If it is the same amount of time on every occasion, this would also indicate that inactivity is turned on.

Let me know if this does not work, or if you don't know how to access the programming menu - steven.burman@commandtechnologyassociates.com
