I change out the batteries between the rechargeable ones it came with and double A's. I can get it to read the internal memory if I use the cord and connect it to my computer and select reformat. Even if it tells me that it is protected. The lens will not close even after you turn the power off or if you go to review. I tried different memory, changed batteries and read about trouble shooting. It worked perfectly before.

Did not drop or hit the camera, but on the P position cannot get a clear focus as it is mostly white. Depressing the Expose button half was shows clear for a moment before getting ready to Shoot. On the Automatic position it is fine

Since the camera focuses in the auto position, we can eliminate the focusing ring assembly as being bad. That leaves the most likely suspect to be the circuit concerned with the P function, which will most likely relate to being a slightly loose ri ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens
