The "For" message means you need to format the memory card.

Copy anything you don't want to lose off of the card.

Locate the LCD Illuminator Button (next to LCD on top) and the Shooting Mode button (next to Brackting button (BKT) on back). Next to both of these button should be the word "format".

Simultaneously press and hold both buttons for two seconds. The card will format. Once done, the LCD will display the number of pictures available to be taken on the card.

My camera will not focus and take a picture.. I am receiving a r07 on the top screen and nothing seems to be helping. Any suggestions?


"rXX" is the cameras estimate of how many shots legt on your memory card. As for other issue: Turn camera "ON" and remove battery while holding shutter button for about 30 seconds. Turn off, reinsert battery, turn "ON" then press hardware reset button on bottom of camera for about 2 seconds. Page 200 in Nikon d70 (do not know about d70s) manual.

Nikon D70 is freezing up. I have no idea what I may have done but when I push the button to take a picture nothing happens and r09 flashes


r09 is just the camera estimate od how many shots you have left on your memory card. For the other, Use fully charged battery , Turm ca,era on and re,ove battery while at same time holding shutter for a[[rox 3- seconds. Re[lace battery, then turn camera off.on. If that does not do it, turn camera on and press reset button on bottom of camera (page 200, I believe, in tghe users manual

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 $$$$

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$
