    Hello! On my D70 I have blinking Err on top display and blinking Err + exposure scale + flash sign in viewfider after pressing the depth-of-view button. Using the 18-200 VR lens I have dark image in the viewfinder and it looks that the aperture remains always closed. With another lens (105 Micro) and correct setting on aperture ring, sometimes the aperture opens and sometime it remains closed. When aperture is open, the camera takes the picture without actually closing the aperture for shutting (so most of the time I have over exposed picture) then the Err message come. Any idea? Thanks

    Hello! On my D70s I have the blinking Err message on the display and blinking Err + meter scale + flash + focus signs in the viewfinder after pressing the depth-of-view button. In fact with the 18-200 VR lens I have dark image in the viewfinder and it looks that the aperture remains always closed. With another lens (105 Micro) and correct settings on aperture ring sometimes the aperture remains closed and sometimes it opens. When aperture remains open, the camera is taking picture but then the Err message is comming. And it looks that it actually does not close the aperture during shot as most of the times the pictures are overexposed. Any idea? Thanks

    Hey there kkorpowski, if your camera lense has an aperture ring at it's base, set it to f22. This should allow the camera to communicate with the lense which may have been the problem. Alternately, remove all accessories from the camera, install a freshly charged battery, consult your manual for instructions on how to reset camera, or just press BKT button and metering button at the same time and hold down for two seconds. This effectively returns all but custom settings to default. If this does not resolve problem , Nikon indicates returning to dealer for service/checkup of system. Good Luck!

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.
