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

1 Answer

How do I change the battery?

I have a Nikon D80 and can open the battery latch cover but the battery does not release. Is there another button I need to press to release the battery? I've read the start up guide and the manual and can't find anything on the topic.

    The latch will come fully open, but the battery can not be extracted.
    Solution?

    Did anything come off or out of the camera? Was it dropped lately?

Have tried pushing the battery back down into the chamber- so that it pops up? or as above but with camera vertical so that it drops out---catch it.

How do i connect my shutter release cable for a nikon d80


Assuming you're referring to the correct electronic release cable, open the lowest rubber cover on the left side of the camera (as you look at it from the back). Inside you'll see a little jack for the cable.

If you're referring to the old mechanical "plunger" type release, forget it. That's not going to fit onto a D80.

I've given up trying to remove the "err" message from my D80 . I've done everything that was suggested ! removed the lens , cleaned the lens contacts , removed the battery and added a new...


"ERR" is camera error. Two items to try:1/ remove battery while camera is ON while waiting for approx 30 seconds, press and hold the shutter release, insert battery and give it a go. 2/ if there is a camera hardware reset button try that with camera ON. There may be a firmware update on Nikon web site, but if you cannot read the memory card, you cannot install it.

ERR comes on screen...


Pull all the batteries, wait 30 seconds, put in a completely different card, put batteries back in and turn on and format the card--sometimes works

I have a D80 since 2 years and since last 1 week have been getting the 'Err' message. Initially, after referring to the manual & pressing the shutter release button, the camera responded only ONCE. ...


Hi sandeepbhat2, On page 129 of the D80 manual is the factory reset switch. Look on the left side of the camera there is the terminal cover, inside below the USB connector is a small reset button. Give that a try. If still it does not work you should call Nikon.

Pls make sure of the following:

Screen black in all lighting. Icons and Menu show but screen otherwise black in all modes. Can view photos on card. Can take a picture, but it is also black. Lens cover is open. Nikon Coolpix 4600. Thanks...


Hello, I went and researched a few points in the manual and hope this helps to some extent. If this doesn't help, try resetting your camera by removing the batteries for 30 seconds, then reinstalling them and turning on the camera again. 
Monitor is blank: 
• Camera is off.
• Batteries are not correctly inserted or battery-chamber
cover is not properly latched.
• Batteries are exhausted.
• EH-62B AC adapter (available separately) is not properly
connected.
• Camera is in sleep mode. Press shutter-release button
halfway.
• Monitor is off.
• USB cable is connected.
• AV/Video cable is connected


No picture is taken when shutter release button is pressed:

• Camera is in playback mode.
• Batteries are exhausted.
• Red (!) lamp flickers: flash is charging.
• Green (AF) lamp flickers: camera unable to focus.
• Message "CARD IS NOT FORMATTED" appears in
monitor: memory card is not formatted for use in your
camera.
• Message "OUT OF MEMORY" appears in monitor:
insufficient memory to record picture at current Image Mode selection.

I want to know how to set up the Nikon D80 for continuous shooting because just press pressing the button?


Set the release mode to Continuous. Then the camera will take pics as long as the shutter release is held down... until the buffer fills.

How do I activate the Nikon ML-L3 remote for the nikon D80 camera?


Set the camera's release mode to one of the remote modes by pressing the release mode button next to the top panel LCD and turning the command dial. The Quick-response mode snaps a picture when you press the button on the remote. The Delayed-remote mode gives you a chance to hide the remote behind your back.
