    Yes I am getting images. The camera works fine without the flash but I need the flash to work as well. Could this be a wrong setting? I have tried everything. I was in the middle of shooting a wedding when it stopped working.

    This sounds like a shutter problem. Are you getting any images at all?

Well, you are not going to like my answer. The troubleshooting guide for the D70 says it could be 1 of several PCBs (printed circuit board) being faulty or the connecting FPCs (flexible printed circuit).

You'll need to locate a local repair person or use the reapir service search here on Fixya. Nikon USA repairs will be $$$$

Why will nikon d70 not flash when hooked up to topcon. camera is new and works fine


If you are speaking about connecting a cable to the hot shoe on the camera top but, the internal flash does not work then, that is a design feature. The cable connected to a flash or, flash connected to the hot show takes precedence over the internal flash.

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.

D70 internal flash not firing


Check if something is preventing the flash to pop up 'fully'. Check for some dust or other particles trapped between the flash and the body. Does the screen say 'Subject is too dark'? If so, the flash has not popped up fully.

Nikon D70 flah not working, used to


I had this problem a while back, but was fortunate to get it fixed under warantee as it was less than six months after Nikon repaired my D70 for the "blinking green light of death" fault.

I'm afraid this is a repair job for Nikon or an autorized workshop. It is most likley the flash tube. If you fancy taking your camera apart (I warn you it would be a fairly difficult job) then please be aware that you may get a significant electric shock from the flash capacitor, which will remain charged.

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$
