Suspect problem is with the pcb on the back of the lens. I have 2 cameras with similar probs and swapping the lens assembly transfers the problem.
What i require is the chip identification and if i can buy them at Maplins or any other electronic componate shop.

Its probably not the chips that is defective Jim.. these camcorders use those really small pana caps there called and they leak and go bad and sometimes NO NO most of the time cause the PCB to oxide and melts the pcb traces. If when you try to unsolder these surface mounted caps your gonna get a really acid type smaell thats bad smelling and bad for you too. if thats the case its bad. Good luck and please report back if you want more info.

Please, what metering can you not see? The view finder has numerous items to view. If you cannot see anything is the camera turned on, is the battery charged? Next are you referring to the LCD on the camera back. If yes, please go to the Custom Settings Menu number 06, is it off? That is found on page 88 of the D80 manual. If none of that works get back with us with more information or contact Nikon.
Have you cleaned the lens' electrical contacts?or is the lens connected loosely?? Examine but probably little need to clean the camera's electric contacts considering its' young age. Do you have access to another AF body on which you can test the lens and another AF lens to test the D80?
Do the following things
1.take a dust free eraser and clean the contacts on the camera carefully by keeping it upside down to prevent dust going inside.
2.do the same for lens contacts.
re-attach the lens firmly.
hope this solves your probs.
The r11 is in the lower right of the top LCD or view finder that is in the D80 manual page 36 it speaks about the buffer. The r with a number is how many shots the buffer at that moment can handle. It is not an error message. For auto focus issue is the lens in AF as well as the camera?
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?
