D80 Issues

I used my D80 last week with no issues, but when I turned it on today, I get an ERR message on the LCD panel on top. The camera looks like it is somewhat working, I can hit the shutter but the camera will not focus, mirror goes up and sounds like a photo was taken, but it has not. I have tried the 2 green button reset (which did nothing) and I tried a manual reset with the button next to the USB port. I have tried new batteries and lenses...

Have you checked that the lens is set to the smallest aperture? Most Nikon lenses have a little slider on the right, marked in red, that allows you to lock them so this doesn't happen.

I'd check this. I know I had this happen to me a couple times in the past and the aperture ring was the cause.

I just got an email back from Nikon saying I will have to ship the camera to them so they can look at it. They said I pay shipping to them and there is no charge for them to look at the camera...to fix it is another thing..lol. I also googled the error message and symptoms and it came back with an Aperture Control Unit as the usual cause with a $200 price to fix
