I have fully charged my battery for my D70S, however, i keep getting a "CHA" message on the LCD display (where it usually displays the # of pictures left.) I keep charging the battery, but keep getting this message, even on a fully charged battery.
What is the problem? Is my battery just dead (meaning it needs to be replaced)?

Seems the camera's internal battery (different from the EN-EL3 main battery) has drained. As the manual says, you can recharge the internal battery by leaving a fully-charged main battery in the camera for three days.
If the camera continues to pester you for clock setting, you'll have to send it in for service. (Opening the camera likely voided your warranty, btw.)
3) Camera displays “CHA” in top LCD.
The camera has detected an invalid partition type or is not working
properly. Reformatting the memory card may allow it to be used. If an
approved memory card causes the camera to display the "CHA" indicator
contact the memory cards manufacturer for assistance.
note that the default disk format used in Windows XP is FAT32 and if a
card is formatted with this setting on an XP system, a D1 series camera
will report "CHA". Reformat the card as "FAT" to use in the D1 series
Try to clean the contacts of the memory cards and, mostly, of the memory card bay of the camera. Use a dry anti-static fabric (e.g. what we use to clean eye-glasses). DON'T use any liquid cleaner of anything like that!
