There is a service advisory out for Nikon E5700.

t has come to our attention that in a limited number of COOLPIX 3100, 3500, 4500, 5000, 5400, 5700 and SQ digital cameras, an electronic component may, in some instances, fail affecting your camera's performance and/or operability.

While only a limited number of COOLPIX 3100, 3500, 4500, 5000, 5400, 5700 and SQ digital cameras are affected by this advisory, if your camera presents symptoms that can include (1) images with a strong color tint, (2) images that are totally black and/or (3) images with visible defects, Nikon will, upon confirmation that the problem is associated to this Service Advisory, service your camera free of charge.

I don't remember about the DX4530 but the older Kodak SD cameras were designed before the enhanced capacity SD cards were invented.   They don't know how to deal with the capacity above 2GB.
I know my LS753 doesn't know how to deal with the larger cards, I'm pretty sure that the 4530 came around the same time.

SOURCE: Nikon D70 Shutter Problem

I have a Nikon D70 which failed completely but exhibited similar symptoms.
I was fortunate in that I had taken out 3 years free warranty at the point of purchase and therefore saved the £90 (sterling) repair cost.
Nikon cameras are designed to be robust and should give a lifetime's service. Most should give 150,000 shutter actuations.
There is a piece of free software available on the Web that will tell you how many actuations were recorded on your recent photos.
Unfortunately, in the fast moving world of digital cameras, the value of a 2nd user older camera is very low.
You need to decide if you were outgrowing this camera body and want to replace it with something better or whether you would be lost without it. My repair took more than 1 month and I was not able to take any photos during his time.
I hope this helps.

Nikon D70 with brand new Sandik ultra11 2gb flash card error CHR

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.

That option isn't available for the D70 some manufactureres call it live view, sort of like looking through a video camera's viewfinder and it is what is going to to get recorded or what the picture is going to be. Some point-and-shoot cameras have that but no viewfinder. Digital camera owners have expressed a desire to have that option on DSLR's for a long time now so camera makers are adding that feature. It comes at a higer price now, but soon it will be a standard just like video for DSLR's (D-90). The reason it has been tough to add is that it is a real power drain on the battery to keep the display on and have the auto focus and metering going at the the same time which is what has to happen if it is a "live view". You can keep your display (of pictures taken on longer from the menu) but that's not really what you are after. Hope that helps.

I have a Nikon d70, and I can not get it to display only one image on the LCD screen. I have held down the button on the top right side as directed, but to no avail. Help Jb

Push your playback button once the camera is on.
Then push you your thumbnail button. (this is the second button from your playback)
watch your monitor and keep hitting the thumbnail button until you get to the single picture view.

Nikon D70

The "For" message means you need to format the memory card.

Copy anything you don't want to lose off of the card.

Locate the LCD Illuminator Button (next to LCD on top) and the Shooting Mode button (next to Brackting button (BKT) on back). Next to both of these button should be the word "format".

Simultaneously press and hold both buttons for two seconds. The card will format. Once done, the LCD will display the number of pictures available to be taken on the card.

According to my information, the camera may need a new flash PCB (printed circuit board). Check the repair service search on this site for someone in your area. The part number for the circuit board is: 1S014-020-1 and runs about 50$

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

How can I use the Adobe Camera Raw plugin after installing Nikon Software?

During the installation of Nikon View or Picture Project, your system is checked for an installed copy of Adobe Photoshop. If a copy with the minimum version is found, Nikon View will install file format filters which will allow Photoshop to open a NEF/RAW file directly (there are other plugins for YCBCR TIFF format from supported cameras). If you have the Adobe Photoshop "Camera Raw" software installed (optional in Photoshop version 7, included in Photoshop version CS) the Nikon file filters will open the file. If you prefer to continue using the Adobe software, find and remove the following plugins: Nikon NEF Plugin (Nikon View) Nikon NEF Plugin LE (Picture Project) After a restart of Adobe Photoshop, the Adobe Photoshop "Camera Raw" plugin will handle the opening of Nikon NEF/RAW format files. Please note that there was an update for Adobe Camera Raw plugin for support of D70 and Coolpix 8700 RAW files, if you encounter difficulty opening raw files from any Nikon product after removal of the Nikon Plugins, please visit the Adobe support site to obtain the appropriate update for the Adobe Camera Raw plugin.
