Re: d70s pic over or under exposed problHems with flash
Try cleaning the contacts on the flash carefully with a pencil eraser, make sure there are no crumbs left then reconnect. Sometime the contacts get dirty or have some corrosion so they aren't making good contact to the hotshoe (look at that too) then try it again. The flash should be acting right after that.

If you are referring to the internal flash I would say you are firing the camera faster then the flash can cycle. There is a green lightning bolt that will come on in the viewfinder when the flash has charged. If you fire the first one it may be a charged flash then again you may have popped the flash composed and tripped the shutter before the flash has had a chance to fully charge. You fire again depleting the charge some more and before it has a chance to recover you fire it again so the flash never has a chance to fully charge. You need to wait till the flash ready light come on in the viewfinder.
Assuming you have tried a newly formatted memory card, you should reset the camera using the combination of buttons set out in the manual.
Electronic devices sometimes need this.
Your personal settings will be lost but it often helps sort problems.
Having said that, 2-3 years is the age when D70s start to go wrong...
go to sony.com and try to download a manual in the customer support section. i believe sony is fairly on top of these things and as its a recent released camera it's definitely there if they stock user manuals on the site.
if it says "processing" when you take the pic, you are in low-light mode and it's holding the shutter open abnormally long to let in as much light as possible. this is for moonlit pictures and such where you would otherwise see BLACK. and it uses no flash, so it must 'expose' the picture longer than normal.
if you dont know or cannot figure out hot to modify the camera settings put it on the little green camera setting, or "auto" mode. then push the flash button until it has ONE large lightning bolt, or a crossed-out lightning bolt for the fastest flash or no flash.
you could have it in "slow-syncro" which flashes numerous times to expose more of the photo-field to light......
get a manual :) its a good one and well-wort using and learning for such a nice camera.
Describe wierd - this word means nothing.
White flash images are over exposed- so reduce the
ISO setting to a lowers number if the camera allows it.
Reduce power of the flash.
The easiest way to do this is to put layers of tissue of the light reducing the intensity until you get it about right.
