Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera

Artifacts inside the camera - need a D70S user guide

Twice now I've gotten artifacts inside my D70 camera. Yes, both times I was outside during a windy day... but the artifacts then show up on all my photos. The first time I took it back to where I purchased the camera and they carefully, (somewhat experimented) tried different things to free the camera of the "flecks" of nature. Somehow (I think the compressed air)
they were able to get rid of the artifact. Then, while on vacation it happened again. I bought some compressed air, and with the telephoto lens off, carefully and gently blew some air inside --- but I was scared to death that I would hurt my beloved camera. Does anyone else have trouble with this??? What should I do?
AND - I need a replacement "user guide" for my D70 -where can I get one?

It sounds like you are getting dust on the CCD panel inside of the camera. Blowing off the dust should fix it unless it became stuck to it. Take care to not accidntly scratch the CCD panel.

The CCD panel sits where the film plane should be if the camera was using film.

Camera will not power up changed battery just went dead Nikon D70

Fixing a Dead Nikon D70 - Green Blinking Light My first-generation Nikon D70, which I bought the day it was released to the market a few years back, died on me a few months ago. Without a card in it, it won't start, and when you insert a CF card in the slot, the green data-access indicator flashes on and off. If I hold down the Menu button, the menu flashes on and off along with the green LED.
d70_87x1.jpgAs it turns out, this is a known problem with the original Nikon D70 cameras, and Nikon USA has a service bulletin out on the camera body. They'll repair it free of charge.
So, if you have the same problem, visit this service bulletin page, click on the D70, and you can access a PDF file that you'll need to print, fill out and send to Nikon along with your camera body. Be sure to take your camera strap off and remove the battery, and don't send any lenses or other accessories.
Mine's on it's way to Nikon now - they say the turnaround is five days (plus shipping time).

Video artifacts during boot

It's related to either the lcd video cable and or the lcd.and or the gpu. I'd say in that order.

NOT the inverter. The inverter only controls screen brightness.

Nikon d70 not showing shots in order as when i take them.

Camera uses time/date stamp of file to determine order, are these correct or do they show incorrect time? If not, then internal lithium battery needs replaced.

Nikon D70 flash doenot fire

According to my information, the camera may need a new flash PCB (printed circuit board). Check the repair service search on this site for someone in your area. The part number for the circuit board is: 1S014-020-1 and runs about 50$
