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

Depending on what flash you are using, you can set the D80 to work in "commander mode". You will need to use a Nikon SB-600 or SB-800 flash. When you set up the commander mode you can choose what channel to use. You would then set up your flash to run in the same mode on the same channel.

The F-- error means that the camera does not think that you have a later AF type lens attached.
If you are using the 18-135mm then the camera is not properly connecting to the lens.
To test this, press the lens release button on the camera and slightly turn the lens as if you are going to release it then turn it back to lock.
This may fix the problem.
If not you can try remounting the lens a few times and if that doesn't work you could clean the lens contacts.
The contacts are the metal studs on the back end of the lens, the bit that goes into the camera.
Sorry if that is too obvious.
If you have an early lens it must be set to the smallest aperture using the ring around the lens.
This will be 22 or 32.
Then lock it using the little lock near the ring.
