Hi there. The power off lever is on the shutter release button. (the button you press to take a picture).
There are 3 positions for this lever, they are:
Power off is the middle setting while Power on is the top setting and the Self-timer as the bottom setting.

Replace your battery and remember to move the lever to the middle position to turn it off when your done. Don't forget to rate my solution, and have fun with your camera!

Camera doesn't turn on


Try to clean the corrosion off the battery contacts. If not give it to Nikon they may be a little expensive but they will restore the camera to it's original condition.

REPLACE BATTERY ON t70


The T70 uses two AA batteries. They don't have to be lithiums; alkalines and rechargeable NiCd/NiMHs will work just as well.
The batteries go inside the grip on the right side of the camera, under the lid on the bottom. Push the latch toward the center of the camera and the lid will flip up. Follow the illustrated instructions beginning on page 8 of the manual.

I don't know about a used one, but you can order a new battery cover for about 7USD from

The camera uses two 1.5V alkaline LR44 batteries or two silver-oxide SR44 batteries. You can get two alkalines for about 5USD at

Thhe camra will not advance the film or take a


I used minoltas for a number of years while going through college, though unfortunately this problem is fairly common- was a few years back but first time it happened to me i took the camera in for repair and if i recall theres a part that just breaks inside (number of years, cant remember the part).

It would have cost me round £60 to repair- bout 6 times the cost of the camera from ebay- I eventually just started buyin a new one from ebay every time the problem cropped up again.

I realise it may not be what you want to hear if your particularly fond of your camera, but the cost of replacing a part may very well be more than the camera is worth.
At the moment I have a minolta XG-M sittin on my shelf, hoping to track down some service manuals and see about taking it apart- I'll let you know if i find anything out, even with my fancy digital camera i still miss using the old 35mm.

Olympus om-4ti makes a screatching noise and stops working


The biggest clue is that you're having to take action to save the batteries. High battery consumption is a a classic sign of a faulty circuit board in this camera. Unlike most regular OM-4's, the OM-4ti generally had an improved circuit board fitted from new which was made available as a warranty repair item on regular OM4's, but you may have an early one.

The faulty circuit board manifests in other ways, most commonly the dead display/non functioning shutter except for the mechanical default speed. I've heard of the screeching fault as part of this problem but have not personally encountered it.

The fault is irrepairable as replacement boards are fashioned of finest unobtanium; the same faults affect the OM-2sp as well. This is exactly why both cameras are now available far more cheaply as used buys: potential buyers who know these models are aware that they're taking a gamble.

There is a revision marking on the "good" boards but it's largely academic. Anyone with a "good" OM4 rarely sells it, and even the revised boards are old enough to have started deteriorating by now.

I cannot wind the camera


yellokp13,

if the led's light in the finder you have a mechanical problem.
if the led's don't light in the finder then turn the shutter select knob left & right around 5 times do this also to the off / on switch. remove batteries and clean the contacts with pencil eraser.
if the leds still don't light then you have a flex circuit problem.

i am assuming there is no film in the camera.
if you decide to have the camera repaired get an estimate first as there are no new parts available.

It's possible that there was some existing fault with the camera that led to it being disused. The lack of use led to the batteries leaking.

I suggest you find a pro camera dealership nearby and ask them to refurbish the camera. The pro stores will normally be able to rent you a temporary replacement.

Loading batteries


Most Nikon manual focus cameras I see have the same battery chamber, and their battery loading procedure are exactly the same. Use a coin to unscrew the battery chamber at the buttom, the batteries should be instered into the battery holder (the unscrewed part) , with negative end goes in first. Also refer to the battery insertion direction on the side of the plastic part of the battery holder you will find it :)
