Question about Nikon Cameras
Does it pop up? There can be a number of causes for this problem, from a bad circuit to a broken flash tube. Without a complete description of the symptoms I can only give you the most common cause of flash problems in the D70. If you can pop up the flash, remove the two screws under the flash and carefully pry off the flash cover. Check the flash pivot on the release side. There is a plastic piece that stick up from it that the wires go through that snaps into place, and it has a plastic piece that sticks out and operates the flash up switch. Impact can cause this pivot piece to fall into the camera so that the switch does not work. Also sometimes impact can cause the top blade of the switch to fall below the plastic piece so it doesn't close.
You have to remove the top cover and pop it into place from the inside (you could use a small hook but the wires that go through the pivot are very small and easily broken. There are any number of dis-assembly instructions on the internet, just seach. Make sure you discharge the flash capacitor or you can get a nasty shock
