Having problems with your Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens ?

The qual/zoom button on my nikon D80 is stuck or jammed and I can't get it released

Answers :

Hi Guest, if the buttons themselves are depressed and cannot bounce out as the other buttons do you could try to use a super thin jewelers flat screw driver to see if you can get it to pop out. A few things going on here, grit came between the button and the body or, the item that pushes the button to its return state has lost its resiliency. If it is because of loss of resiliency the camera must go in for repairs and a good CLA.

Nikon D80 with a Sigma Lens (80 to 200 I think). In manual mode, often shutter won't release - this was a close up of a hummingbird with a fast shutter speed. Internal light meter showed underexposed, but the background was dark green. Initially, the shutter released, but later would not operate either with a remote, or by manually depressed the shutter release button. Switching back to auto, the camera seemed to work fine, but in this mode could not get the desired shutter speed. In full manual

I have a nikon d80. shooting with a sb-600.. the flash is stuck. i can't take it off the shoe.. if the pins are jammed with the contact, how can i release them to remove the lens

There is only one pin that engages the shoe - the rest are simply pressure contacts. The pin that engages the shoe is strictly for locking the flash to the show, and is operated by the lever on the back of the flash - directly above the shoe. ... Nikon SLR D80 Digital SLR Camera Digital Camera

Error Message When I take a photo with Nikon D60 it's as though the shutter gets stuck and it gives an error message on the screen (Error! Press shutter release button again.)

I have a D80 since 2 years and since last 1 week have been getting the 'Err' message. Initially, after referring to the manual & pressing the shutter release button, the camera responded only ONCE. i.e. the 'Err' message disappeared and the pics were SEEN on the screen (which means the shutter was working). Now, even that has stopped. I'm not able to click any pictures (although the mirror moves) and certain specific menus & other buttons on the body dont work. Now on pressing the shutter re

I have a Nikon D80 with an 18-135mmNikkor lens.  It's about two months old.   Yesterday I was outside, on a snowy day,and a couple of times, I pressed the shutter release button and it would not take a picture.  I turned it on and off a couple of times, and my son looked at it and "pressed a couple of buttons", and then it worked.  This happened about three times.  I  wondered if it was because the camera was cold.  However, it was a beautiful wintery day - about 30 degrees.     Tonight, my nie

Nikon d80 - most of the time memory card access lamp flashes and shutter release button doesn't trigger shutter. Sometimes it will stop blinking and camera will fire. Sometimes when it fires it will not show a preview image. When malfunctioning I can not bring up menu screen or access any features (shutter speed, f-top, or review screen. Have tried different memory cards, and lenses with no change.
