Question about Nikon Digital Cameras

1 Answer

I have a Nikon D80 and the camera locks up and won't take a picture - the F keeps blinking and it won't lock into a f3.5 or whatever so you can take a pciture - why would this happen ? I generally use it in the auto mode - sometimes I try to switch to manual mode - it will allow me to take a pciture then switch back to auto and it seems to work for awhile - but it will just go back into lockdown mode and it is very frustrating -

Remove the lens, clean the contacts, reattach the lens, and jiggle the lens to seat the contacts.

Sigma 18-300mm lens


The problem may be with the sigma's aperture ring. Try this:

- Turn camera off
- Turn the aperture ring clockwise and lock it
- Turn camera on

If this does not solve the problem, do it again but turn it counter-clockwise

Nikon d80


RESET Find the two buttons with green dots next to them on the top right of the D80. They are the +/- * and AF * buttons. Hold them both down for a few seconds. The top LCD blinks and everything is back to normal.

My Nikon D80 flashes "off" or error and won't take a picture


Is the battery charged?
Do you have a memory card in the camera?
Is the card empty?
Is the lock on the memory card off?

FEE error code on nikon d80


To solve this all you need to do is turn the lens' aperture ring (the one nearest the camera body) to the smallest number (probably 22 or 32).

My nikon d80 f number keep blinking. what should i do? it doesn t want to snap any picture.


The "fEE" error indicates that the camera is not communicating with the lens. The lens may not be attached to the camera properly, or if it has an aperture ring, it may not be set to f22 (or the highest aperture number of the lens) - which is normally marked in orange. Select this aperture and lock it using the aperture locking switch to prevent this from occuring again.

keith7, That's probably  the f EE indication which is the lens aperture ring not locked at minimum aperture (that's the highest f/ number) try resetting that to the higher 5 something )check the lens) restart and see if that helps. randy320sgi
