Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera
I've got a Nikon D70s. (It's always set on auto.) The photos I take have always turned out a little darker than I would like (something I usually remedy in Photoshop), but over the past two days - since I last recharged the battery - all the photos I have taken have shown up COMPLETELY BLACK on the camera's screen. I mean, COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY BLACK. (And it's not because I'm leaving the lens cap on!)
What is going on with my camera? Is there anything I can do to fix this myself, before I have to resort to going to a camera shop? (I live in a rural area - camera shops are hours away!)
Thanks in advance for any help offered...
A lot can be happening. Try them one at a time. If the first does nothing, go to the next.

I had the same problem. Black images on my Nikon D70, though everything was set as it should be. Playing with the settings, I found I could get a picture with shutter speeds of something like 5 seconds, as if the CCD sensor was barely working. I had JUST gotten my camera (used) today, so I was wondering if I had wasted my money, and was looking at a repair bill the first day.
I came across a comment in this link: http://www.fixya.com/support/t8167148-camera_not_displaying_images_as_seen
It TOTALLY fixed the problem!
With the camera turned ON, open the battery comparment, then close it again. My camera works perfectly in all modes now! The solution makes no sense, but it worked. I guess it has to do with getting rid of some sort of residual electrical charge on the sensor.
