20 Most Recent Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens Questions & Answers


Format the SD cards with the camera. You might have to do a software upgrade on the camera since the Kodak card files are different than Nikons.

That's all very nice, but what is your actual query ?

Make sure you are not in bulb time mode.

This may be due to the aperture ring in your lens. Try the following:

1. Turn off your camera
2. Move the aperture ring clockwise then lock
3. Turn on your camera and try again.

If this does not work, do the same thing again but turn the aperture ring counter-clockwise.

The CPU contacts on the lens can sometimes get dirty and they can be cleaned by gently rubbing them with the eraser end of a pencil.   Be very careful to not get any of the eraser rubbings into the lens.   Also, when handling a lens, don't touch these contacts, as the sweat from our hands is not good on the metal.

normally, just removing the lens and putting it again you solve the problem. F-- problem means "there's no lens attached !"

If you are using an older lens the aperture ring will be close to the camera body when the lens is on the camera. In order to set the aperture with a D80 and older lens you must set the aperture ring to "22" or the highest number on the aperture ring available. For newer lenses there is no aperture ring. You set the aperture by setting the dial on the top left of the D80 to "A" for Aperture Priority. You then set the aperture by rotating the front dial on the right side of the camera under the shutter release button. On older lenses, after setting the aperture ring to the highest number, you then set the aperture in the same manner.

I assume that your camera will shoot in continuous mode, but only slowly. The two main reason for this is memory buffer overload due to your memory card not being able to accept data quickly enough or insufficient battery power. When you have a slow memory card, the buffer circuit in your camera retains data until the card accepts it, but if so much data comes in so quickly that it exceeds the buffer's capacity, the camera will slow down until enough buffer space becomes available to accept more data. For example, when I first got my D90 (I use a D800 now), I tried to take video and the picture and sound would not stay in sync. with the 35 Mbs cards that were the fastest available at that time. When Sandisk developed a 45 Mbs card, I no longer had the problem. High speed cards are now available at 60 Mbs, 90 Mbs 120 Mbs and faster and those speeds will allow data to transfer from your camera's buffer so quickly that the buffer will never fill up and your camera will not slow down.

Do you really need a driver?

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

The ERR message indicates a camera malfunction. In my D-90 manual it says that it can be cleared by releasing the shutter. The only way to do that is to turn the camera off and back on. Rarely, that won't work and you have to remove and reinstall the battery.

The manual also says that it this have frequently or persist to contact a Nikon authorized service center. I would contact Nikon tech support at www.Nikon.com and discuss the problem them before contacting an authorized service center.

The up and down arrows on the multi-function button on the back of the camera set the image on the display. With the display on, press the up or down arrow to function through the display settings and the stop on the one you want.


This often happens when you accidentally hit one of the arrow buttons while taking the picture and this changes the display image to the histogram or other display setting.

No you should call Nikon 1-800-NIKON US (1-800-645-6687) 9AM-8PM EST, Monday through Friday or go to https://www.nikonusa.com/en/Service-And-Support/Service-And-Repair.page and send it to the for repair. Their prices are reasonable and they do much more than simply repair the issue.

The r09, r11 or r17 just tells you how many pictures you can shoot before the internal memory buffer is full. It's not an error message, and I don't think there's any way to turn it off.

Nikon D80... | Answered on Jul 14, 2014


Both items can be found in the D80 manual.The r09 is found on page 36 lower. It is the number of shots the buffer can handle. The Err is not a good thing. Turn off the camera, remove the battery then replace it, turn on the camera reset to factory bottom of page 129.

The Nikon D-90 users manual says on page 256 that the ERR message indicates a camera malfunction and that it can be cleared by releasing the shutter.

I've found on my D-90 that the only way I can get the shutter to release is my turning the camera off. When I turn it back on the ERR message is gone and the camera functions as it should.

Occasionally, I have had to remove and reinstall the battery to make the camera turn off but this happens only rarely.

The users manual says if the condition occurs frequently or persists that you should contact a Nikon authorized repair center. I suggest that you contact Nikon tech support at www.nikon.com to see what they suggest. I think this information would apply to the D-80 as well.


The r05 is not an error message. It is an indication that the camera is shooting in burst mode (multiple shots with one button push) and that you can shoot five more shots before the camera must pause, clean its cache and be prepared to shoot again.
