Having problems with your Nikon D80 Body Only Digital Camera ?

Getting an f-- warning and on control panels

\015 And I am unable to take pictures\015

Answers :

Hi there.
The F-- error means the camera cannot detect an electronic contact with\015\012the lens; since you are using a "G" lens, it was likely a matter of an\015\012improperly mounted lens, or likely dirty electronic contacts on either\015\012the camera body or lens.
Give it a clean, remount the lens, clean the electronic contacts and try it manual mode.

Good luck

I have a nikon d70 digital camera with which I have shot a few thousand exposures. A number of what seem to be minor software errors have been cropping up. For instance: I can't get the camera to "beep"; I can't format the memory cards using the 2 button system - I have to go through the menu setup; I can't select certain of the image quality options using the "quality" button - I have to go thru the manu. Certain numbers come up unreadable on the control panel. The above problems do not stop

I have a d80 and I have two problems: 1) I can't get the monitor to work while I am taking the picture, I can only review it. 2)Whenever I take the aperture out of the locked position of 22, the aperture reading on the control panel blinks: F EE, and the remaining exposures reading changes from exposures remaining to: r11. Please help.

When turning off my D90 I have on the control panel showing ISO 1.0 in parenthesis and the letter K to the upper right of the 1.0 this remains on when the camera is turned off.

CHA is blinking on the control panel, and on the viewfinder it says Card is locked. Can't get rid of these things, and obviously can't take pix. We just charged the battery before Easter and haven't been able to shoot anything since then.

First, remove the memory card and look at it. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. Then put the card back i ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

We are now on our 3rd 5.0 bushnell night sentry camera and the night pictures are black. With the second camera, we might get the first picture where the flash goes off, but the subsequent ones are black. We have replaced batteries and also have a solar panel.
