Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 28-80mm Lens

1 Answer

Error message and no auto focus. Error message is r09. The camera is new to me, bought from me brother a year ago, not sure what the Diafragm is so you'll have to excuse my lack of camera knowledge. I used it in the fall for football season and I started to be the error message around Christmas. Thanks for the help

SOURCE: How do i clear the r09 on Nikon D80

Try resetting all features back to default to see if that will clear it up. Your manual will have these instructions.
otherwise you can check out this repair https://www.teleplancamerarepair.com/quote/cart.asp?iProbID=33&mo=96
error codes are quite common in most cameras and they all have different meaning. this is a great camera by the way.

Hi. I have a Fujifilm A235 12.2 MP which I bought around 1 year ago. Once I tried to switch it off and it told me "Focus error". From that day on the lens would not move in and out as usual and I...


Hello

Unfortunately a "focus error" message is not something that you will be able to fix. This error indicates a system failure and requires the camera to be sent in for servicing and repair.

You may find it more cost effective to purchase a new camera as opposed to the repair price on your current camera.

Nikon d80 problem (err flashing with r09 in the lcd display)


I belive this isn't a fault but more to do with how you are using the camera. The r09 message is to do with the camera buffer and how many more pictures it can hold. You do have a memory card installed, right? The r09 is normally not an error, but simply an indicator of how many more pictures you can take in the current burst before the buffer fills. The number will vary according to the image quality and size settings.

R09 error message on nikon d40


It's a report saying that the camera is busy doing something. It can hapen when you have taken a photo and the camera is busy processing but I find it happens when in auto focus and the camera is having dificulty due to distance from subject or light. Try switching to manual focus, moving further away from the subject or casting more light on the subject.

I can't focus with my nikon D50


Perhaps you have accidentally set the auto-manual focus to manual on the camera body?

Per.

PS. The r10 message is just a report of the current memory buffer status, not an error indication.

Lens won't autofocus


Check that the electrical contacts on the lens and camera body are clean, and that the lens is mounted fully and correctly to the camera, i.e. no damage or dirt in the mounts. If these are all okay, it is looking like an internal problem with the lens's focus motor, or possibly something jammed in the lens.

If possible, try the lens on another camera body. Alternatively, you could switch the camera to a manual focus mode (or a mode that doesn't require focus confirmation) and see if you can take a picture.

This pretty much rules out what you can do for yourself I'm afraid. If you still have no luck, you will probably need to take it to a camera store for inspection / repair.

(Incidentally, the R09 is not actually an error message. It means that you have 9 shot capacity in the camera buffer before it will fill up. It sounds as if the camera is set to an auto-focus mode that requires focus confirmation before the shutter will fire which is why you're seeing the message.)

The r codes just indicate that you have that many shots in the image buffer. It is not an error indication.  Depending on the mode, the camera either will or will not allow you to take the shot when the image is out of focus.  Make sure the lens is set to A for auto, and try to focus on something outside in good light with lots of detail.  It sounds just like you aren't actually getting a good focus lock.
