    I'm in a fair shitty mood, so I'm gonna go ahead and say it's your own fucking fault. Live w/ it, or pay to have it fixed.*

    Turn it off, take the battery out, then submerge it in water to get the beer out (beer leaves a conductive residue).

    Give it a quick shake then put it in the microwave for 15 seconds to get the water out.

    I spill beer on my 1ds mkII all the time. It seems to hold up to it. It even asked to swim in the ocean before too. It holds up fine.

    Switch to Canon - their built in flash systems are much sturdier.

    your d80 should have weather seals so I wouldn't worry too much. but I believe you can pour a little bit of rubbing alcohol over the area and it won't affect the camera but have that verified first.
