    My built in flash on my Nikon d80 will not pop open. However, the flash still goes off when my camera senses that a picture needs the flash. How do i fix this?

    Pulled my camera out last night and it won't auto focus. Won't even try. This is a D80 with a Nikon 18-200mm VR lens. I tried resetting everything, but it didn't help. Nothing has been dropped. Camera will only take pictures with manual focus. Lens is set to M/A.



    Accidentally turned off my camera the other day while still plugged into my mac, before "ejecting." Could that seriously damage the camera or lens??? I'm clueless right now.

Took it to a Nikon authorized repair shop, and the AF motor had died. Was pretty surprised since I bought it new only 5 months ago. Repaired for free under warranty, works like new. Hopefully it won't be a problem again.

I have a Nikon D80 and I hit the open flash and now it won't flash. The flash will pop up but won't flash.

Contact your local Nikon authorized service center for repair on this issue. If you're in the east coast or in the New York City area you can contact us for this.

How do you turn off automatic flash manually on Nikon d80?

Assuming you're in one of the point&shoot modes (any mode other than the PSAM modes), press and hold the flash button on the front of the camera and turn the main command dial on the back to cycle through the available flash modes. To turn flash off, select the lightning bolt in a circle with a slash through it.

In the PSAM modes the flash will not pop up on its own.

D80 SLR lens /flash prob lem

What are your other lenses? If they're not AF lenses, you're not going to get autofocus or metering.

Is your flash not working when popped up? Remember that the flash won't pop up automatically in Manual mode.

Nikon D80 flash won't pop up

Must be a problem with the flash lock. Try to pop up the flash manually using the flash button located at the top left of the camera beside the flash. If this does not work, you may need to have the cam serviced

Nikon D80 - My (built in) Flash will not pop up.

That is just a mechanical problem. There is just a little hook holding the flash and it retracts when you push the bottom to pop up the flash. I'm sure it can be easily fixed, never the less your camera store or Nikon should take care of it. So take it back to the place you bought it.

How to fix -E- problem Nikon D80. Thanks

The -E- just means that there is no SD card in the camera. There is also a setting that prevents the camera from attempting to take a shot without a card, and I assume that represents your flash in the viewfinder.

D80 flash doesn't close

erik, It's a little plastic arm with a tiny hook that moves to allow the flash to pop up when you press the flash button on the front of the camera or select the built-in flash option.  You may be able to get parts direct from Nikon or if you have a good local repair shop they may have a parts D80 to cannibalize for you if you have the skill to put it together.  If you got the camera at a good price and don't really rely on the built-in flash, (one on the hot shoe is always better) then tape that puppy down with some electrical tape until the repair is done and shoot all you want, peel it back for the pop up when you need a fill in flash or you don't have the flash with you.
