Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera
My D70 is about 2 yr old and worked fine on a recent trip. When I got home, I tried to transfer pictures from my camera to my mac using a usb cable. When it didn't work I notices the lcd no longer displays the number of pictures remaining on the card, there is no green light when the card is inserted and I can't view photos on the screen. It's as though the card reader in the camera is broken. I tried to reset the camera with the two green buttons and the one on the bottom of the camera, neither of which worked. I have a card reader at the office so I'll check the integrity of the card tomorrow.
Any suggestions short of sending the camera to Nikon? The thing cost $1200 and for that you'd think it would work longer. Are the other DSLR's by Nikon any more reliable?
No point fighting with communication technology.
I remove CF card and use it in a card reader to transfer images. Downside here is possible risk to pins. $200 for your repair isn't too bad actually... it is a NIKON. That's like a BMW!!!

A lot of D70s seem to be displaying problems with the compression board (interface between camera and memory card I believe). Too many. First sign is often CHA appearing intermittently in top LCD panel and a system lockup, temporarily resolved by removing and reinserting the card. The only solution is a Nikon repair as you had. . . Class action, anyone?

There are several possibilities here.
1. Bad Cable
2. The USB plug on the camera is damaged, ie broken solder connections.
3. Bad card.
If the problem turns out to be #2 your camera will probably need a new main circuit. Which is a Nikon Repair. Probably around $250 or more.
