    My camera takes the picture but nothing is on the card. The battery is full and blinks for several seconds when turned on and when button pressed. I have rest the camera and re formatted the card using the format buttons on the camera but no use. The LCD on top does not show pic counter and the back LCD will not turn on. The camera was used a few times since purchased over yr ago.

Do the pics show when you press the playback button? Does the menu display? If the display works, then check the menus to see whether image review got turned off. If the display doesn't work, it needs to be repaired/replaced.

Apparently there was something seriously wrong with your camera, which has now fixed itself. Nikon didn't put the LiveView feature into the their DSLRs until the D3 and the D300, which were released after the D80. The more recent D90 has this feature, but not the D80.

The best way to adjust the screen is to adjust the screen resolution until you get a correctly proportioned image.
First display an image such as a square or a circle on the screen.
Go to Control panel - Display - Settings tab and start with 1024 X 768 screen resolution adjustment
click Apply and the check your image.
Repeat the adjust screen resolution select the next highest screen resolution setting, repeat thia process until you get the best image.

D80 Monitor does not function as view finder.


To be able to do what you want, your camera would have to have a feature called "live view"....yours does not.

D80-viewer and display stay black, the flash


If your camera got moisture inside and you turned it on before it had a chance to completely dry (usually takes several days) you may have caused a short circuit.

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.

In camera mode the display turns black and white, and so are the pictures taken. No setup changes seem to work. ???


You mean to say whatever photographs you click comes in black and white photograph or nothing at all comes. Go to camera select options select effects and then select normal. If still the photographs are black and white kindly comment back.

Black area in photograph


Unless you are using high-end Nikon Speedlights with camera and flash set for Auto FP High-Speed Sync, your top flash sync shutter speed on the D80 is 1/200 second. The black band you are seeing at faster shutter speeds is because the second curtain of the shutter begins to close before the first curtain reaches the fully-open position (which is when the flash fires). The higher the shutter speed, the shorter the gap between first and second curtains. To get full exposure with flash, there must be an instant when the shutter is fully open -- first curtain completed travel, second curtain not started yet.

"As the speed increases the final image should get lighter" applies to ISO speed. Higher shutter speeds mean less light reaching the sensor, but that's not the cause of the black bands.

Image playback


Are you saying that part of the picture displayed on the camera screen flashes black? If so this is normal as far as I have read. It shows there is too much light on that part of that image. You can alter it not to show it flashing.

Nikon d80 LCD screen


Hello cherdh,

To disable those blinking spots, just press the up or down cursor keys at the back of the camera while in playback mode. You will get three different views. One shows the EXIF data (Image data) as an over lay on your photograph. Press the button again to go to histogram mode, with graphs. Press it again to go to a mode where some image data is on the bottom of the display with no blinkies on the image.

Those blinking black spots are called highlights in a photograph. They indicate the areas where your photograph is over-exposed, i.e. where there is too much light and the colours are washed out. It can be a good tool to get a good exposure. Keep clicking with different settings till you get an exposure without those blinking spots.

I hope this helps.
