If you are using an older lens the aperture ring will be close to the camera body when the lens is on the camera. In order to set the aperture with a D80 and older lens you must set the aperture ring to "22" or the highest number on the aperture ring available. For newer lenses there is no aperture ring. You set the aperture by setting the dial on the top left of the D80 to "A" for Aperture Priority. You then set the aperture by rotating the front dial on the right side of the camera under the shutter release button. On older lenses, after setting the aperture ring to the highest number, you then set the aperture in the same manner.

When viewing pictures in playback mode, simply turn the index finger dial (up by the shutter button) and this will change the 'mode' in which you view the pictures and should eventually get you to a setting where this information disappears.

SOURCE: aperture priority malfunction

davidsucklin,
You can use the film lens with the D80, but it it not react to the same settings as it did with the film body, the multiplier factor for the focal length is going to be different and it may be stopped down a bit. When you are shooting in aperture mode are you adjusting your shutter and ISO? The camera and the lens have to be communicating the same info to one another inorder for it to work. First set the camera back to auto mode the check the shot to see the settings (f-stop, shutter speed) test them with different ISO's to see what the camera thinks the settings should be, then go back to manual on the camera and lens and try the shutter priority mode with the aperture ring set at the 2.8 to see if it works then change to Aperture mode with the same settings that can take the picture. If it doesn't work keep in mind som of the older D lenses will drop some functionality (like aperture) in certain configurations. You can verfify compatibilty of your specific lens on Nikon's support site.

SOURCE: Can't get F3.5 aperture on the 18-135mm kit lense on d80

You may be shooting auto and there is too much light. If you want to be sure you are shooting with 18mm @ f3.5 then shoot with aperture priority (the shutter speed will adjust automatically). Ususally at a wide focal length you would want a small aperature (smaller f-stop) so this should not really be a problem.

To solve this all you need to do is turn the lens' aperture ring (the one nearest the camera body) to the smallest number (probably 22 or 32).

SOURCE: Aperture stopped working on Nikon D80

This could be caused by dirty contacts between the lens and the camera body. Also could be a lens problem. Look at the small round contacts on the lens and the corresponding contacts inside the top area in the body (with the lens off). If they look dirty or discolored (should be silver and somewhat shiny) then clean up with a Qtip or VERY CAREFULLY with a clean pencil eraser. Don't get any eraser dust inside the lens or body. With a DX lens, there's not too much else that can go wrong, other than a lens problem.

My d80 is flashing fee and wont take no pics


You're apparently using a lens with an aperture ring. Turn the ring to its smallest opening (largest f/number). You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring.
If this doesn't do it, please reply to this post specifying the lens(es) you're using.

Err with f4 and r11 display


If your lens has an aperture ring, do note that most of these lenses require the ring to be locked at a certain position for it to work. In the course of using the lens, you may have accidentally unlocked the aperture ring and moved it out of position. This is a common problem.

To fix this error, try this:

1. Turn off camera
2. Turn the aperture ring clockwise and then lock it
3. Turn on the camera

If you still encounter the same problem, repeat the same steps but turn the aperture ring counter-clockwise. Hope this helps.
