D80 nikon LCD Monitor

\015 My lcd monitor won't come on so that I can see when I take pictures, I can take a picture thru the viewfinder and I can see the picture once the picture is taken. Please help.\015

Answers :

If you can see the taken image in the monitor- fully lit- then the monitor is not faulty.
However you cannot get Menu's is that right?
Ths then would be a problem for the manufacturers support web site.
If the camera is no longer in Warranty my guess is that it would be cheaper or nearly so simply to replace it than a repair

Just got a new Nikon D80. I'm used to a Coolpix which has continuous images on the LCD. The D80 appears to present an image only when monitoring the picture and not while using the monitor to compose the shot. I assume this is because it is of the SLR breed. Am I correct?


Yes. Only the most recent DSLRs have a Live View capability. The D80 does not. ... Nikon Digital Cameras

The top (monochrome) LCD on our Nikon D80 recently broke. I think that it is actually called the "Control Panel," and displays settings, battery life, number of pictures remaining, etc. Please note that this is not the 2.5" color LCD on the rear of the camera. I know that it is merely the LCD because the backlight works, as does portions of the LCD display itself. Does anyone know of a guide or video to perform this repair? Also, does anyone know the part number? I plan to call Nikon tomor

Nikon D80, how do you turn off the r09, r11 and/or r17 alert (depending which Image Quality setting I have the camera set to)? I have sent the camera back to Nikon twice and twice it has come back with the r-whatever still appearing on the LCD screen once I depress the shutter button.
