If you shoot in Auto mode, the camera will not allow you to turn off the flash when it senses that it is needed.

To use the camer without the flash, change the mode to Program ("P"). Once it's in P mode, the flash will not fire as long as it's in the down position. When you want to use the flash, press the speedlight release button (the one with the little lightning bolt near the mode select dial).

According to my information, the camera may need a new flash PCB (printed circuit board). Check the repair service search on this site for someone in your area. The part number for the circuit board is: 1S014-020-1 and runs about 50$

From your question it isn't clear whether or not you are formatting the card in the camera.  Is this how you are formatting it?  If not, you should try doing just that.  
Do not use a computer to format the cards for your camera.  In the future, use only the camera's own formatting and do it after every time you transfer your images to your computer.  In case you don't know how to format the card with the camera, let me know and I will explain it.

If nothing else it should pop up when you put the camera in A or M or S and then press the flash button on the side. It might or might not fire, depending on the light available, but it should for certain pop up. When you do this, you should hear a click and the flash should pop up. If you hear the click and it doesn't pop up, then it's jammed or glued or somehow being mechanically prevented from coming up.

In Auto modes, you can select the flash to off with the side button and the back rotary selector. This is where the flash symbol with the slash through it tells you the flash is off. If you push the flash button in Auto modes with the flash selected off, it won't pop up.

There are also some things the D70 can do to control external flash units that may be set abnormally.

The best way to make sure those aren't messing you up is to select "reset to default". That will take the camera back to a base setup that should work.

If none of these things gets it going, take it in to the Nikon dealer in town.

Nikon D70 with brand new Sandik ultra11 2gb flash card error CHR


Go to the Nikon site and upgrade the firmware on your D70 to version 2.0.

Before doing that, try turning the camera off, wait a min, then back on. That sometimes clears the error. The D70 is having trouble reading the card(s) you're putting in. The upgrade fixes that.

D70 internal flash not firing


Check if something is preventing the flash to pop up 'fully'. Check for some dust or other particles trapped between the flash and the body. Does the screen say 'Subject is too dark'? If so, the flash has not popped up fully.

Nikon D70 flah not working, used to


I had this problem a while back, but was fortunate to get it fixed under warantee as it was less than six months after Nikon repaired my D70 for the "blinking green light of death" fault.

I'm afraid this is a repair job for Nikon or an autorized workshop. It is most likley the flash tube. If you fancy taking your camera apart (I warn you it would be a fairly difficult job) then please be aware that you may get a significant electric shock from the flash capacitor, which will remain charged.

Nikon d70 flash stopped working


Well, you are not going to like my answer. The troubleshooting guide for the D70 says it could be 1 of several PCBs (printed circuit board) being faulty or the connecting FPCs (flexible printed circuit).

You'll need to locate a local repair person or use the reapir service search here on Fixya. Nikon USA repairs will be $$$$
