Re: "r7" Error Code
If the camera works OK, then the r7 means that you have room in your memory buffer for 7 more pictures to take ("remaining 7"). As soon as you take a new picture, it gets transferred instantly to memory compact flash memory, and again r7 will display. The instance when there is r6, r4, etc. is short lasting, that you would not notice.
Change you camera setting, let say for small size JPG, and you should see that many more files will fit in the buffer, as indicated by a larger number after the letter r.

The number after the "r" tells you how many more pictures you can shoot in the current burst before the buffer fills up and the camera has to slow down. If you're only taking single shots or short bursts then it shouldn't affect your shooting at all.
This is the most common problem with digital cameras. There is a web blog that walks you, step by step, through what you can try to fix it. They say about 50% of the cameras can be "revived", trying their suggestions. http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
Good luck, hope you're one of the lucky ones. Oh, one more thing, if you can't fix it, get an estimate before having it repaired. The cost of repair can exceed the cost of a new one, on sale.
Have you tried formating the memory card? R07 means it has 7 shots in internal memory. Since you have already pressed the reset through the small hole in the front, if formatting the card does not work, try downloading the latest firmware from Nikon and installing it.
The r07 is just a display that tells you how many pictures you have memory for in the buffer. It's not an error code at all. It will change when you change resolution, since pictures at low resolution take less memory than at high resolution. On the D70s this number will go from about r04 to r11 as you go from RAW down to low resolution.
Try formatting the cards in a PC before you put into the camera. Do the long format, not the quick. It will take some time, but give it a shot. If that doesn't work, buy new memory cards. Cards don't last forever, and it's not worth it to take pictures on a marginal card and then have them not work.
This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
