Question about Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens
This just happened whilst the camera was not being used! The battery was not changed or even a fully charged "hot" one. Suddenly the battery was completely flat so that there was no display at all on the LCD. Replacing the battery with a fresh one brought up the problem with the LCD backlight being permanently on and the issue of the card access light flashing even when the camera was turned off.

Have you tried a factory reset/firmware upgrade? May be you should give it a shot.

You can check the status of your battery, including chargeble life remaining, in the Setup Menu. You need to have the CSM/Setup menu option to display Full menus, not Simple, in order to get battery status. So see if that battery status selection says you need to replace the battery.
Since you can shake the camera to get full battery, it's possible the battery contacts (on the battery or in the camera) are dirty, so check that.
If you do need a new battery, spend the few extra bucks to get a genuine Nikon EN-EL3e from a Nikon dealer. I have learned that many off-brand batteries do not properly implement a needed reserve, and "Genuine Nikon" batteries bought online from non-dealers are often counterfeit, just relabeled junk.

Fixing a Dead Nikon D70 - Green Blinking Light
My first-generation Nikon D70, which I bought the day it was released to the market a few years back, died on me a few months ago. Without a card in it, it won't start, and when you insert a CF card in the slot, the green data-access indicator flashes on and off. If I hold down the Menu button, the menu flashes on and off along with the green LED.
As it turns out, this is a known problem with the original Nikon D70 cameras, and Nikon USA has a service bulletin out on the camera body. They'll repair it free of charge.
So, if you have the same problem, visit this service bulletin page, http://nikonusa.com/Service-And-Support/Service-Advisories/D70-Service-Advisory.page click on the D70, and you can access a PDF file that you'll need to print, fill out and send to Nikon along with your camera body. Be sure to take your camera strap off and remove the battery, and don't send any lenses or other accessories.
Mine's on it's way to Nikon now - they say the turnaround is five days (plus shipping time).

Sometimes, checking the battery's voltage discharges it. Try not doing that once and see what happens. Also, it wouldn't hurt to clean the battery contacts in the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Error: TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN is displayed on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.
Performing a manual power reset
?· Turn off the camera.
?· Remove the battery pack.
?· Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
?· Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
?· Reinsert the battery pack.
?· Turn on the camera.
To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the SET UP1 Menu of the Camera to OK. This will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.
If the issue persists, service may be required.
