p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · D 80 problem


My 4 year old D 80 has started exhibiting strange behavior. When I turn it on, the top display and memory card light just keep blinking. I pushed every button, took out the memory card and put it back, turned it on and off, but nothing worked. I finally opened the memory card door and snapped it back. That took care of it. Has anyone else had this problem?
I think it is mad at me because I bought a used D 300s in April and I have not been using it at all. By the way, I really love the D 300s. Glad I didn't wait for the D 400!

Dirt, oil, etc. can get on the pins or get in the CF sockets. I had this issue more with my D70 than D300. If you just insert and pull out the card a few times it improves the contact. As always, do it carefully so as not to bend any pins.

Thanks, I'll remember that if the problem pops up again. I bought some
de-oxit a while ago. If taking it out and replacing it doesn't work, I might try the cleaner.

Kind of funny reading this.... I noticed recently as well that my D80 was flashing ERR. Thought was the SD card and/or the contacts. Anyway, long story short, finally discovered my battery was low, causing this. I occasionally throw in a replacement/backup battery, just to keep it fresh, since I don't use it that often. The recent times that I've noticed ERR on my display was the times I had the backup battery in. Basically, the battery is shot and dies really fast. Once you start getting low in battery life the camera doesn't want to work and will do all kinds of weird things. ERR, flashing, etc. Anyway, good luck!

The batteries read as new, even though they are 4 years old. The battery door open and close fixed the problem. I guess it was a bad contact.

Lithium-ion rechargeables even if they aren't used tend to die after 3 years after manufacture Its the chemical properties of it. So Buying new old stock for them isn't good. Hopefully this is what you're experiencing. That your battery is just worn out.

The 3 batteries I have register as 0 or new. I think it was just a bad contact with the battery compartment door.
