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

Nikon D80 flashing 'err' and 'off'

\015 I started having trouble with my camera in a very humid environment but was only there for a short time. The 'err' message would flash and the camera wouldn't take pictures. Now it switches between sometimes saying "err" and sometimes saying 'off.' I can't find this anywhere in the instruction manual or online. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

Usually you get this kind of problem in variations of temperature. Humidity means moisture and that isn't good. The Nikon D80 body was not built for harsh conditions. Nikon define that any use above 85% humidity, or use near 100 degrees, plus any use involving moisture of any kind? including hands/body (camera resting on a shirt while walking) is bad. So it's not robust by any stretch of the imagination. The model is not made with environmental seals, like pro models. I guess they aimed this model at enthusiastic amateurs and didn't see the need. Trouble is this model can, in the right hands take pro-quality shots. I use two, like you, but I saw this problem coming and I never wear them suspended from the neck and put them away when they are not in use with plenty of silica gel in my bag. I shoot racing and I REALLY sweat! If you have the lcd screen up against you on a hot day it intensifies the heat. The problem is likely to be moisture on the PCB board, which causes corrosion to the board. If you've ever done gym class and the windows have steamed up it's the same thing. It's just means the temperature inside the camera is way too hot. Anything electrical causes heat, so the temperature on the inside is gonna be way hotter. If it is cooler on the outside it causes condensation. If you have dried it out and you still have problems it's gonna need fixing at Nikon. The bottom line is that it's fragile; that is alluded to in the manual. It sounds improbable but I can assure you that Nikon will tell you the same. It's not the sweat on your hands that is causing the moisture..highly unlikely. Hope that helps.

Appreciation CanadaBruce I was browsing the website since I have a Nikon D80. Considering the fact that Nikon sells this as an amateur camera (meaning not a cheap solution), I suspect their Q&A and test wings are probably getting a lot of flak internally for the problems its users experience intermittently. Besides the F-err with 18-135 lens, I have not experienced other problems yet. I hope and pray to whatever powers there be it stays that way. One way I have tried to get around this problem i
