Read the manual on how to do a two-button reset. Also: from the nNikon Support Page on the D70::
It has come to our attention that select electrical components in a limited number of D70 cameras may, in some instances, fail affecting camera performance and/or operability.
While only a limited number of D70 cameras are affected by this advisory, if (1) when a memory card is inserted, your D70's memory card access lamp blinks, locking camera operations and preventing operation, or (2) with no memory card inserted, the camera will not turn on despite the battery indicator showing a fully charged battery, Nikon Inc. will service it free of charge.

The Frequently Asked Questions button at the bottom of this page offers more information about this advisory and, should you have more questions, also provides information about how to contact Nikon.
We apologize for any inconvenience you may experience.
Does your camera use a compact flash card? I've heard that some Nikon cameras have a problem with the flash card draining power when not in use. Try removing the card when not using and see if the battery lasts longer.
Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty. It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.
Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Both of these problems are caused by underexposure. There are several causes for this. If you are set in AUTO MODE check the shutter speed and lens opening in the view finder. If the speed is less than 100 and the shutter is less than 5 and you are not using flash. You will probably get blured and dark pictures.
Practice shooting with your settings outside in sunlight , inside with lamplight, inside with flash and all of the above with motion. Check the exposure after each shot and make adjustments. In a short time you will get very good at setting your camera.
switch off the camera.Remove the battery from the camera,after two minutes reload the battery.Switch on ok? If not, using the reset option you can correct it. If not, if you have warranty leave it with seller
