Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera

Nikon D70 not pwering on



I have a major problem with my Nikon D70, and I am a new user of a digital slr...what happened is, I was taking pictures when there was a sudden burst of rain, absolutely cats and dogs. I took some pictures in the rain and then when the rain increased, I shut it and put it back. Now, the camera refuses to start..even the LCD display which shows the number of pictures taken, is completely blank. I used a hair dryer to dry the camera inside out, without a direct contact and put the camera in dismantled form, which includes the lens, the camera body and the battery under a 100w bulb to heat the full unit so that moisture evaporates, but no improvement. The camera is dead as ever...what should I do? I bought this camera from a friend last week, 6 days back. I have few local guys in the city I stay but no authorized service centres.


I will really appreciate your help and advice..


thanks, & regards ... Gautam

Nikon D70 is freezing up. I have no idea what I may have done but when I push the button to take a picture nothing happens and r09 flashes

r09 is just the camera estimate od how many shots you have left on your memory card. For the other, Use fully charged battery , Turm ca,era on and re,ove battery while at same time holding shutter for a[[rox 3- seconds. Re[lace battery, then turn camera off.on. If that does not do it, turn camera on and press reset button on bottom of camera (page 200, I believe, in tghe users manual

I have a Nikon d70 SLR. I had this camera completely cleaned and tuned up 3 months ago. Recently I can not take pictures. The battery powers the camera, but the shutter wont engage. An "error" message...

Read the manual on how to do a two-button reset. Also: from the nNikon Support Page on the D70::
It has come to our attention that select electrical components in a limited number of D70 cameras may, in some instances, fail affecting camera performance and/or operability.
While only a limited number of D70 cameras are affected by this advisory, if (1) when a memory card is inserted, your D70's memory card access lamp blinks, locking camera operations and preventing operation, or (2) with no memory card inserted, the camera will not turn on despite the battery indicator showing a fully charged battery, Nikon Inc. will service it free of charge.
To obtain complimentary service for cameras affected by this advisory, please click the link below to download and print the Service Return Form. The Service Return Form provides return instructions.
The Frequently Asked Questions button at the bottom of this page offers more information about this advisory and, should you have more questions, also provides information about how to contact Nikon.
We apologize for any inconvenience you may experience.

D70 USB setting issue

Users of Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000 and Mac OS 9.x may experience problems trying to download images from the Nikon D70 using Nikon View. Initial shipments of the D70 have the USB option in the "Set up" menu set to PTP - Picture Transfer Protocol. PTP is only compatible for downloading images with Windows XP and Mac OS X. To solve this issue please set the USB menu option to Mass Storage and then connect the camera to the computer. The D70's card will then mount like a removable disk and Nikon View will be able to transfer images
