Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera
Hi I got an err msg showing on my Nikon D70s camera yesterday. It was fine when I took the first 2 pictures and somehow in a sudden the shutter doesn't work and it won't take any more pics. So frustrated!! I've been using this camera for 3 years and that's the first time it has problem. If you can give me any information about that I'd really appreciate it!!! Have a nice day! Joan
It sounds like the camera and lens are no longer speaking to each other. There may be dust or debri in the contacts between the lens and cam.
First, go to your cleanest, dust free room in your house. remove the lens gently from the camera. There's a button on the left handed side of the camera that gets depressed (not in a sad way) and the lens will turn counter clock wise to be removed.
Use great care to protect the inside of the camera from dust. If you have the cover that came with the camera to keep the lens opeing closed, that would be the thing to use. Otherwise, just use great caution to keep the dust out. If you have compressed air can, gently spray around the the circumference of where the lens connects to the camera.
Then replace the lens carefully. There should be a white dot on the lens and one on the camera to line up the two. Turn the lens until it clicks on. Try the camera. Let me know if this worked for you.

Assuming you have tried a newly formatted memory card, you should reset the camera using the combination of buttons set out in the manual. Electronic devices sometimes need this. Your personal settings will be lost but it often helps sort problems. Having said that, 2-3 years is the age when D70s start to go wrong...
