Question about Nikon 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor Lens
I shoot with a D70 Nikon body.
My other lens works fine.
I checked out the above mentioned lens today, as I could not get it to work the other day.
Today I could only get it to shoot in manual, and in bright sunlight only.
All the other images look black.
I could also not adjust the F-stop. Camera will not allow it.
The internal circuit board, or the internal harness may be at fault. You will have to send the lens to Nikon for service.

The only problem with doing this repair yourself, is that upon re-assembly you will need the Nikon software and hardware to readjust and calibrate the lens.
Try sending it to PhotoTech Repair Service in NYC. They are Nikon authorized, and can do the repair under warranty if you still have it. Also if you join they're facebook page, they will give you a 10% discount.
Here is the facebook page link, it has everything you need to send it in.
