Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera

Open Question

Nikon D70s lens won't stay attatched

I accidentally dropped my Nikon D70s, with the lens attached, a few months ago. Ever since then, the lens would not stay attached to the camera body. If I put it on and hold it in place, I can still take photos, but it's a huge hassle... I won't be able to buy a new lens until Christmas probably, so I figured I'd check here if this has happened to anyone else and if you have any ideas on possibly fixing or working around this...

SOURCE: Installing a internal battery for the Nikon D70s

I have not done the replacement yet, but I can tell you where the battery is. It is located underneath the USB/Power connections on the left side of the camera. There are several covers and boards to remove to get to the battery.

SOURCE: Nikon Coolpix S5 lens cover won't open

Hi Debscan, My 1.4 year old S5 developed the same problem and after checking out various websites I get the impression that it is a common one to these cameras. I found that if I put the camera on a level table and then turn it on (and off) 3 times the lens cover would open further with each try. On the third turn-on the lens cover would drop fully with a definite "Click" and the camera would work. The next time I shut it off, the lens would not close properly, but the same "Third times the charm" routine would always work. This may only delay the inevidable final crash of the camera, but it might get you a few more pictures out of it.

SOURCE: Nikon D70s - all photos turn out black

A lot can be happening. Try them one at a time. If the first does nothing, go to the next.

  1. Put the camera in the "auto" exposure mode. Be sure ISO is set at 100
  2. Try a different lens.
  3. Remove the battery for 10 minutes and reinstall.
  4. Go into your menu program and press the "reset all" button to go back to factory specs.
  5. Next change your memory card.
Let me know if we need to go further.

SOURCE: Nikon Coolpix S550 Lens Error.. Need fix without spending

No, even if you could find a lens for free this is not an easy camera to replace the lens on. Even a qualified tech would take up to an hour to replace. Understand that today's cameras low cost makes replacing the camera a better option than repairing a camera who's value used is less than the repair cost.

It should. Nikon lenses are both backwards and forward compatible. Depending if you have an older or newer lens than camera, some of the automatic functions may not work or may not be available. Worst case, you will be able to use your lens in the manual mode.

It seems like you've got a broken lens mount on the 18-105mm. Take a look at the backs of the two lenses. You should see the bayonet mount with three flanges. If one or more of the flanges on the 18-105mm are broken then the lens won't stay on.

If you feel up to doing the replacement yourself, you can order the part from

Otherwise have a trained technician replace the mount.

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

The 18-105VR will work on the D70s.

Err on the lcd of nikon d70


If you've tried removing and reattaching the lens, removing and reinstalling the memory card, and anything else you can think of then it's probably locked up just like mine did a month or two ago. Googling the problem turned up a few with the same troubles but no solutions other than to take it to a service agent for repair. Sorry, can't tell you exactly what was replaced as I don't have the paperwork with me but I do recall it was a $12 part that cost $260 in labour to fit!!

Nikon D70s Photos Not Crisp in Last 6 months


Is the mounting ring on the camera loose? Check the screws for tightness if you have the proper cross point screwdriver. Adjustment the CCD position screws is the common fix otherwise
