Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera

Open Question

I have a D70 that had a bad Compact Flash Base Unit. (bent pins) So I replaced it with a new OEM Base Unit. I was very careful to make sure the ribbons were replaced properly but -E- shows in # of pics remaining after trying both CF cards with no luck. No other issues with the camera everything else works as it should. Any ideas?

SOURCE: CF pin

I'm afraid they break most of the time. You can try it though since the repair involves replacing the board that the connector is soldered to, $$$

SOURCE: Do the Nikon D100 and the D70 share the same in

I understand what your're looking for.

The D100 is basically an N80 with digital guts. It doesn't share the same chassis as the D70, although it does share the same excellent battery.

Other than that, the D70 was a new design, so it doesn't seem too likely that they would have the same CF sockets.

That being said, unless I had them both stripped apart on the table in front of me, I wouldn't make any bets. It just seems like there would be slight differences in mounting holes and configuration.

My nikon d70 will not regonize the sd card and gives a format signal


The D70 uses CF (compact flash) cards - I hope you are simply misnaming the CF card. But, if you did use an SD card, it would explain how you could have bent a pin.

I understand that Nikon is moving away from CF cards because of the 'bent pin issue' as well as the limited capacity of the CF card.

So, first I would try a CF card (any size) in the reader. If it still doesn't work, then I think you might check with a camera repair shop. If it is a bent pin, they can fix or replace the card reader. Note that the D70 body can be replaced with an EX rated used body for under $90 at https://www.keh.com/shop/nikon-d70-6-1-megapixel-digital-slr-camera-body-only-9782.html

Thus, I wouldn't pay $100 to have the reader fixed unless there are extenuating circumstances. Good luck.

When the Compact Flash Card is inserted into the EOS camera a pin has bent over and a message reads "Error CF". Please advise cost to correct. Forgive me, but I am securing more than one quote...


Is it the compact flash card that has a pin bent? If so, I would replace the card with a new one. If the pin on the camera is damaged, then service at canonusa.com or 1-800-OK CANON is indicated.

My Canon Rebel xti camera states that is an error with my compact flash, I bought a new one and it still won't work


Pull the cf card out and with a careful eye (maybe a small flashlight and magnifier) look down the slot and check to make sure none of the cF card receiving pins are bent... it happens and it'll give you a card error. Regretfully if this is the case, it'll need a repair, replacement parts are available but it is a little techie to get apart and swap parts... Check the pins... good luck on this..

I have a Nikon D70 and am unable to insert memory card all the way, i double checked that it is the correct card and inserted the right direction.


STOP! You have just bent a few pins. Your camera has a male connection. Meaning it has pins sticking out. If you are unable to insert a memory card, that means a pin is bent and is not going into the holes in your memory card. This is a common problem with cameras that accept a compact flash card. This can be an easy fix or it can be a very hard fix.

Ive fixed a couple of cameras like this with a pair of tweezers. flash light (or some big source of light) and a magnifying glass. You need to look into the slot on the camera under light and look at all the pins sticking out. Look for the bent pins and use the tweezers to bend them back. Be careful not to keep bending the pin back and forth, as this will break the pin off. Ive seen cameras work without certain pins, but this is not something you want to do.

To have an SLR fixed is a minimum $160 dollars depending on where you take it too. The D70 is a good camera.

Please do not stick the memory card back in. Check the memory card to make sure all the holes are clear and have nothing blocking the holes or make sure a hole has gotten bigger and merged into one. I would use a different card once the pins are are sticking straight.

Hope this helps you.

Nikon D70, displaying error code 'CHA' when memory card inserted. Unable to format or use memory card. Have tried new memory card, still same problem.


CHA errors indicate a communication issue with the CF card. Your card could be going bad, you could have a broken pin, or any number of other problems.

I'm running into this same problem now. If anyone has a good step-by-step to troubleshoot which of the dozen things this error could be, I'd appreciate it.

For myself, I'm planning to start by trying a new CF card.
