Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera
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...

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.

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.

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

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.
