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

My Nikon D80 shows a flashing 'Err' when I turn it on and it is not taking any photos. It is a Digital Camera with an 18 -135 mm Lens. Please assist. Thanks.

Answers :


The camera is in error mode.

Try pressing and holding down both the AF mode button (the one labelled AF) , and the exposure compensation button (The one marked +/-).
Hold down for a couple of seconds and the display will reset.

If the error occurrs again, then there is a problem with the camera. A common fault causing the problem is a defective shutter mechanism. Try mounting different lens if possible, and see if that can fix the problem. Also remove SD card and replace batteries.
If that does not fix the problem, call Nikon at 1-800-NIKON-UX (or ringing your local Nikon support number if you live outside US). In that case the camera needs repair. You can also get a quote from a third party service here:Repair.

I have a Nikon D80. Whilst at Yosemite National Park a few weeks ago, where it was extremely cold I noticed that my camera would not take photo. After a few tries, it started working fine again. However, yesterday the shutter started sticking, and the ERR message showed on the screen. Then I can take one photo, and same thing happens again. Is there something I can do with settings, or do you think there may be something wrong with the camera body? I took to a camera shop and they say the

Canon Powershot A610 digital camera--LCD screen shows icons, but otherwise is blank--there is no visible movement in the lens when I take a picture without flash--have tried setting it on TV setting and taking a picture, then opening the battery cover for a few seconds after waiting 7 seconds or so, but no images on the LCD except the camera's icons--ideas? probably a stuck shutter, or is it still possibly the CCD sensor even though there's no visible movement in the lens? Ideas? Thanks!

Much more likely that it's a stuck shutter, especially for your model camera. How many tries did you give the fix? Some people stated that it took at least 15 repeated tries before the shutter opened:\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera

A/C adapter Just received my first digital camera,the 2020.Should it be fully funtional with the A/C adapter plugged in and no batteries or is it necessary that there be batteries in the camera and the A/C just takes over when it is plugged in.With just the A/C the viewfinder on top the camera shows some info but no other camera functions seem to work.Don't know if there's a problem or this is how it's supposed to be.

The camera should be fully functional with just the AC adapter. I hope you're using the Olympus adapter and not a substitute. Some substitutes will work ok but others can cause problems. The AC adapter output should be 6.5 volts at 2000 ma (2 amps). ... Olympus Camedia C-2020 Zoom Digital Camera

Olympus FE170 digital camera shows battery compartment empty with batteries in place I have the same problem. When I place fully recharged batteries in the Olympus FE 170, the camera won't power on at all. When I first did this, it would power on once and then when I went to take a picture it said the battery was too low. If I put new disposable batteries in camera it works. Camera is only 1 year old and barely used.

On rechargeable batteries, check the mAh on the side, you would need to be about 2300 or more. also the shelf life on some rechargeables may be less than desireable... try lithium digital ... Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera

After almost two years, pictures taken with my Nikon D80 are showing a black dot in the middle of the photo. You can't see it in the view finder and it shows up on all the pictures I take regardless of which lens I use. The mirror inside the camera does not have the black dot on it either. Is it a problem with the sensor? How can I get it fixed?

Your sensor has some dust stuck to the sensor. You will have to take it to a service center, they will clean up the sensor for you. It is inexpensive. ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens
