The following web blog says the error is due to the camera not being able to write to the card:

It also looks like the error could be linked to the battery, and charge therein.
If you google "nikon d70 cha error", you will find some blogs that talk about the problem. Hopefully, they will help you figure it out.
If nothing helps, contact Nikon:

Good luck, and hope this helps.

    Probably your card has become corrupt. First try reseating the card in the card reader. Push it in hard. Do this with the camera power off. Now try turning the camera back on . Try this a few times. If this does not work try reformatting the card firstly by using the camera. Re formating should take a few seconds if shorter than that there is a problem. If that does not work reformat using a PC.

What does the error message CHA mean on a Nikon D70?


It means it can't read the memory card. Try formatting it. If that doesn't do it, try a different card.

CHA flashing on readout screen. Battery is fully charged. What does CHA mean?


If there are brackets around the CHR, it means the card is locked. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

If there are no brackets around the CHR, it means the camera cannot read your memory card. Try a different card.

Sccording to my D70 manual:
"CHA"= this card cannot be used. try Nikon approved card,, Try reformatting card in camera, not PC, clean card contacts in camera using camel hair brush and blower.

You might also use a small pen and press the hardware rest buttin in bottom of camera (page 200 in manual)

I have a Nikon D50 with an error message "CHA"


This error indicates the following:
This card cannot be used (CHR) blinks.
Problem(s)
Error accessing memory card
Unable to create a new folder (on card)
Card has not been formatted for use on D70

Try another card
Format the card using your D70 (all images will be erased)
Check the card for visible damage or poor contacts.

You may have inserted a memory card that was been used in a different camera or the formatting process did not complete successfully.
I hope this helps.

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.

Problem with Nikon D70


The error code "CHA" is telling you that the CF card you are using for storage is not compatible with the camera. You should consider trying a different card, perhaps a slightly older one that is not as fast.

I use a SanDisk Ultra II card, and that works fine for me.
