Having problems with your Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens ?

I took it to the Nikon Repair Center in El Segundo.

\015 I called Nikon and the tech support told me that with this problem, it needs to go to the shop so I took it in. The estimate is $131 but they won't tell me what they think is wrong with it. They will only tell me what the problem is after they fix it. I'll update this when I hear more.\015

Answers :

If your problem is the same as the F-- error and 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.
\015\012To fix this error, try this:
\015\0121. Turn off camera
\015\0122. Turn the aperture ring clockwise and then lock it
\015\0123. Turn on the camera
\015\012If you still encounter the same problem, repeat the same steps but turn the aperture ring counter-clockwise. Hope this helps.

SAME PROBLEM I didn't drop S60 or hit anything. When turn on the power, a motor vibration noise will be heard. Turn it off and turn it on again may get it work luckily. The repair center said the belt is not on the motor gear and asked $100 repair charge even it is still in warranty. Seems Nikon S60 has potential quality problem here. There is anyone has same problem here? We may collect such information to claim Nikon to get our right!

If it is still under warranty, you might inform Nikon that if they refuse to fix an obvious defect, you are prepared to notify the Better Business Bureau, your State Attorney General, and some of the popular photography magazines plus anyone else you ... Nikon COOLPIX S60 Digital Camera

Lens error I sent in the camera to a certified Nikon repair center that has quoted me a price of $225.00 to repair. It needs a new lens mechanism and some minor adjustments and cleaning. My dilemma is whether at that cost, to trash the camera and buy a new one, or shop around for a repair shop that can do yhe repair at less out of pocket cost.

It's been 3 years since i've been using my Nikon D40x and this morning I was about to shoot an event, I adjust the aperture to 13 and after that a message show on the screen saying "lens not attached" and I can only use the manual mode but I can't adjust the aperture anymore. what should I do? do I have to bring it to the nikon center for repair?

Having received no response in over a month, I assume this is no longer a problem. ... Digital Cameras

Exposure Control I have an Optio S6 that I accidentally dropped into a building's girder while doing Kite Aerial Photography. From that point on I've gotten very poor exposures. Out at a beach the photos were totally black. There are only some small nicks right above the flash, but my guess it was a pretty good hit. I took it to a Pentax Repair Center but the cost of repair equalled the cost of a new camera. I hate to just throw it out, any suggestions?

I have had both a Olympus and a Fujifilm and when i got a quote to get fixed the quote was more than the camera was worth so i claimed insurance and upgraded to the next model for under $100 ... Pentax Optio S6 Digital Camera

My Nikon D5000 gives out blurry pictures and the auto focus sometimes does not work. I've sent the lens to be examined & repaired and today I tested it again after being repaired. Today I took a picture of a person standing in front of a wooden fence and instead of focusing on the person (which was my intention), the camera focused on the fence. The result: The fence is sharp but the person is blurry. What causes this? Is it the lens or the body? How can I solve these problems?

I have a Nikon D-80 with 18-135 kit lens. after 2 years 5 months (and thus out of warranty) very careful use, it displayed ERR and froze. No change of lens, reset etc. made any difference. The place where I bought it said it had to go to Nikon UK for repair (carriage charge GBP20). Estimate for repair is GBP150.
