Question about Nikon D70 Digital Camera

Lines View finder when focusing

I have had this D70 since November and am just now noticing this or something has gone awry. I now see a little line from the focus point in the viewfinder that extends to the closest side of the viewfinder when I press the button down half way to engage the auto focus. Its just one small little hair sized line almost like its connecting that little square that indicates what area will be in focus to the perimeter of the view finder. Am I going insane, has it always been there, or do I need to send it in for service? I am already running 2.0 firmaware and have for months but never saw this before.

Good day,

The problem you might be having is that the view finder is out of focus.
If this is the problem it is an easy fix.
You will see a small wheel next to the view finder (it has a + and a - next to it), look through the view finder and let the camera focus on an object. Now turn the wheel and you will see the image either get worse or start to come in focus. Adjust the wheel until you are satisfied with the clarity.

Please let me know if this was helpful!

Adjust view finder focus as you will see setting there, to view correct focus in view finder itself.
Camera is just fine because it is taking good focus pictures.

Scratch appears in photo's


The nice curvy pattern looks like a hair but I supposed it could be something else. Are you sure you've cleaned both the front and back of the lens?
