Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera

Nikon D70 - err - won't take picture

The camera says err on the top display. When I try to take a picture, sometimes it won't work at all (little soft click) and other times it makes a very strange, slow shutter sound and still won't take the picture. I took off the lens and the mirror seems to be flipped in an incorrect position. I tried different lenses and it had the same problem.

    after over two years of perfect use and just having taken some great shots the day before and morning of, I'm getting the "ERR" message too. I push the button to take a picture and it's like it gets half way then stops. I too have taken off the lens and found that it's all black (i'm seeing the backs of things I believe) so the mirror doesn't seem to be flipping properly. I then can hit the button as if taking a second picture and the mirror flips back like normal (when I take the lens off again) and the shutter sound finishes, except that the picture obviously wasn't taken. Where my camera is decidedly out of warrentee I'm scared to try to "send it in". I've tried recharging the battery, and both the two button and one button (on the bottom of the camera) resets. Any thoughts?!

Today I was taking photos and the camera quit...the top display says err. The book says release shutter, but I push the shutter and it does nothing but make a little click and the err stays. I took the lens off, and the camera does look like the shutter is open or something.

Mine wasnt taking a picture either and was making a strange soft clicking noise. It just happened to be on self-timer mode. Try turning that off and seeing if it works. =]

Go to the Nikon site and upgrade the firmware on your D70 to version 2.0.

Before doing that, try turning the camera off, wait a min, then back on. That sometimes clears the error. The D70 is having trouble reading the card(s) you're putting in. The upgrade fixes that.

You most likely need the shutter replaced. I see them frequently. Not something you want to try yourself, as it is an in depth repair.

Nikon D70 Err


Sounds like the shutter is sticking. This could be due to damage or just need cleaning. This probably means that you need to get the camera professionally serviced/fixed as shutters are extremely delicate.
