    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 $$$$

Sb600 flash has no communication with d70 camera


Have you tried using the wireless mode? Even if there is a problem with the hot shoe interface, it might still work using the wireless mode. To do this you have to set both the camera and the flash. On the D70, under the menu with the icon that looks like a pencil, select Flash Mode|Commander Mode|TTL|OK. On the flash, hold down the Zoom and [-] buttons to get the CSM menu. When you see the zigzag arrow, push the Mode button to turn on the wireless mode.You may have to use the [+] or [-] buttons to cycle through the menu to find the zigzag arrow.

Now you should be able to use the flash detached from the camera. Just pop up the D70 flash, which will tell the SB-600 what to do via light pulses. There are other settings that may be required (channel and group settings must match between camera and flash) and be careful not to block the light sensor on the side of the SB-600. If the wireless system is still working, you may find you like it better than hot shoe operation.

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.

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.

Check in the user guid for your camera about their recomended shutter speed setting for the flash.

Try using the camera and the flash in "A" (automatic) to start with.
