I have a D80 camera that is blinking err and will not record

Customer Question

I have a D80 camera that is blinking err and will not record pictures. Sporadically, every once in a while it does record one. I have cleaned the lens and camera contacts with denatured alcohol, taken out the memory card and battery for 24 hr., replaced the memory card, pushed the reset button and pressed the two green spot buttons for two seconds. Do you have any other suggestions?

Hi,

Have you formatted the memory card using the camera's Format process? If not, please download you photos from the card to your computer and format the card.

In addition, have you "hard reset" the camera using the pin size reset switch located next to the DC power connector?
