    spoormans,
    Just for clarification, when you put the original lens back on does the camera work?  Can you tell me what type/brand of lenses you have and are working with?  Is it new and digital or a standard AF lens?  That would help.

I had something very similar happen to me.
I now know what I did wrong.
I was using an older type lens that did not have electronic contacts.
I forgot to turn the camera off before I removed the lens and I believe this may have short-circuited the camera electronics.
I have to get the camera repaired at a cost of about £90 (sterling).

I recently swapped lenses on my Nikon D70 digital whilst it was switched on,I then realised and switched it off, but now it doesn't switch back on ?. What should I try ?. Thanks, Mark


I'm not aware of any reason this should be an issue. The only time lenses should not be removed is during an exposure, any other time should be safe - power on or not.

I have a Nikon FE2 and i switched the lense out from a normal lense to a macro lense, when i shot the picture my went black. so i switch the detachable lense back to the normal lense and its still black!


have you tries changing the battery in the camera. if you try to take a photo with a dead battery it will lock the mirror up. If changing the battery doesn't make the mirror release turn the shutter speed dial to "B" and that should release the mirror

D70 viewfinder went dark all of a sudden


Some things to try.
Go to the menus and reset all of them to default.
Check the camera.
I am not sure this has anything to do with the lens. Diff. lenses may give less light, true.
I am almost sure this has something to do with the settings.
Try above and see if it works.

Camera will not power up changed battery just went dead Nikon D70


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.
d70_87x1.jpgAs 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).

Camera will not power up changed battery just went dead Nikon D70


Are you getting any power from it? How about an error message?

Try blowing some compressed air into the battery chamber. There might be some debri or dust in there. Try replacing the battery to see if that solves it. (Someone you know must own a D70).

D70 will not connect to


I checked all connection and cables and found two issues not related to camera. The USB cable was faulty, replaced and I could connect to computer through F port but the J and I port of the computer continues to not respond and I will need to see what is wrong there.

The D70 has a reset button at the bottom of the camera. Firts of all, I think you have checked you have the correct lens inserted (at least D mount) and well done, checked your memory card is correctly inserted, and if you have another, change it.Checked the battery. Looked the AF modes on the body. If everything is OK, then press the reset button. If you have no answer, then take the camera to the T. Service.
