R05 problem using d70, camera will not take a photo in autofocus

I purchased a used d70. It worked fine for a couple months. For seemingly no reason one day, it would not take a photo using the autofocus. It gives me "err" and "r05" in the window, and will not take a photo. It feels like the lens is spinning some, and wont take a photo. It was working in manual mode with manual focus, but after I took the lens off and placed it back on, it will now not take a photo in any mode or setting. I have taken the lens off, and placed it back on. I have also tried another lens that I have and I get the same problem. I have tried resetting it, and I still can't take a photo in any mode. Please help!

It is actually an error message generated by your compact flash and means that the card is no longer readable. A lot of D70 owners have reported this error without being able to find another solution other than reinserting the card or changing the card to a different brand. You could also try cleaning out the memory card slot and check to see that all pins are aligned and not bent.
Good Luck,
Jeff

I just bought the Tokina SD 12-24 F4 (IF) DX wide-angle lens for my D70, and it does not autofocus. I'm being told by the company I bought it from that i am past their 2 week return policy. Does this lens...


Only the MkII version of this lens has an autofocus motor built in, the MkI relies on a motor in the body of some Nikon AF SLRs to autofocus. The D70 does not have an inbuilt AF drive motor, so if you have the MkI lens then you can only use it in manual focus mode on your camera.

During using D90 for son's b-day my camera kept freezing up and giving a code of r05 and another code once that I don't remember. Why and what does r05 mean? I even turned the camera off at times but it...


The r05 is not an error. It's simply telling you that the buffer has room for five more pics. It's only a problem when it gets to 0 and stays there.

As to the other error, I'm afraid I can't help you there.

Received an r05 notation on the number of exposure box of my Nikon D70. What does this mean? There is not annotation to such an error notice in the manual.


It's simply telling you that you can take five more pics in a burst before the buffer fills up. It's not an error, it's supposed to do that.

It's only a problem if it gets to r00 and stays there.

Nikon D70 Shutter Problem


I have a Nikon D70 which failed completely but exhibited similar symptoms.
I was fortunate in that I had taken out 3 years free warranty at the point of purchase and therefore saved the £90 (sterling) repair cost.
Nikon cameras are designed to be robust and should give a lifetime's service. Most should give 150,000 shutter actuations.
There is a piece of free software available on the Web that will tell you how many actuations were recorded on your recent photos.
Unfortunately, in the fast moving world of digital cameras, the value of a 2nd user older camera is very low.
You need to decide if you were outgrowing this camera body and want to replace it with something better or whether you would be lost without it. My repair took more than 1 month and I was not able to take any photos during his time.
I hope this helps.

In auto focus mode the lese seems to "hunt" and won't focus


When this happens with my D70s, I know of two options. 1) use manual focus or 2) autofocus on another object about the same distance away from my subject (holding the shutter release half way) and then move the camera back to my subject composition. This seems to happen when there is little contrast in the scene, i.e., a field of same colored flowers. Hope this helps.

It wont focus or take pictue


Hey harleymomma,
If the d70 is set to AF-S mode focus has to be achieved for the shutter to be allowed to take the photo. In some exposure modes the aperture must be locked down on the smallest aperture. I would also make sure the contacts are clean that allow communication between the body and the lens. Of course you need to make sure the body and the lens are set to autofocus. If none of this works I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Casio Exilim s500--horizontal lines in picture and autofocus creates blurry pics


It appears this problem is due a failing CCD device in many brand cameras. All the manufactures use the same source(s). I have not persued Casio as yet, but other companies are offering a recall to replace the CCD for free. I plan to use this approach with Casio. Search the web for "failing CCD in digital camera", it describes exactly what we are observing.

Focus malfunction


THere is a little switch on the back of the camera, just under the area selection Dpad. Make sure it is not in the 'L' setting. This locks the selected autofocus area.
