Nikon d70s err

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

    Yeah.. I did try the CF card thing, battery thing and lens contact thing but nothing works. Do you know what is the combination buttons of d70s?
    I called nikon repair center this morning and they ask me to send it in and they'll figure it out in 1 week. I am thinking that if it's gonna cost me too much on fixing then probably it's better to get a new one. Sooo sad..
    Anyways, thank you for your info.

    I've already tried that and it doesn't work. Actually I have another lens and tried that one on. Same thing happened.

    Thanks for your advice though.

    marcusphotog,it's just showing err on the LCD.



    Rickname, thank you for your information. I've send my cam to Nikon repair centre this morning so I don't get a chance to try that. Anyways, I'll let you guys know how things going here.

    Hi everybody, actually I got this problem solved by sending it to Nikon repair centre. They said that it's the shutter problem and I have to pay around $300 for getting it fixed. Also, they offer me a price to upgrade my camera to D90. I don't want to waste money on my old one so I am using D90 now. @_@

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.

    Joan,



    With your new information about you trying multiple lenses already, can you tell me what the error message says?

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...

    To reset: hold the BKT button and the metering mode button simultaneously for two seconds. Some of your settings will be restored to factory standard.


    If this doesn't work try the tiny recessed reset button on the underside of the camera. You'll need a ballpoint pen to reach it. Nikon recommend you only do this on their direct advice so I'd advise calling them first but at the very least, *read the manual*.


    Good luck

For the best under $1000, that would be the D90.

The 18-105VR will work on the D70s.

Error message on D70 freezing camera operations


Hello,
I got this info from Nikon for D70...
When you see Err on the control panel, LCD monitor or viewfinder of your digital camera it refers to a camera malfunction. Try the following:
  1. Remove all accessories from the camera.
  2. Install a freshly charged battery into the camera.
  3. If your Nikon camera offers resets such as the two-button reset or a hardware reset please follow those instructions provided in the product manual.
If these steps do not resolve the Err message we recommend having a Nikon Authorized Repair Technician evaluate the Nikon camera.
Hope this be useful for you to resolve problem.

The higher the ISO setting the more grain in the photo. Have you somehow set the ISO to say, 1600? http://www.nikondigitutor.com/eng/d70s/select.php?menu=1&sub=b11&num=12 Select ISO setting this way: http://www.nikondigitutor.com/eng/d70s/select.php?menu=1&sub=b05&num=10 Are you shooting in low-light situations (typically indoor)? Try shooting bright scenes and Auto mode, or manually set ISO to 100 or 200 and see if noise persists.

No images


Look in Explorer at the .jpg files on your card to make sure they have information in each file. Next, make sure your software is set to view .jpg files,i.e. Faststone Image viewer (download.com) can be set for virtually any image format. If you viewed the images on the lcd monitor they were on the card at that time. Make sure you haven't somehow protected those image files or have accidentally reformatted it.
