Question about Nikon D70 Body Only Digital Camera

1 Answer

Nikon D70 camera: I am attempting to repair CF pins. Have back and bottom off the camera. Need to know how to remove the connector from the PCB. What is the connector, and what is the PCB?

    Having problems with the connector, seems fragile, long, and reluctant to move. Do I push or pull it straight up? Where is the locking tab? The photo doesn't seem to have enough detail to make me confident I have the right place.

A connector is a jack and plug - like a headphone jack and associated headphone plug at the end of a cord. The jack is the opening on the front of the stereo and the plug pushes (or plugs) into the jack.

The D70 has many connectors or "jacks" and mating "plugs". Some of these connectors are long and very narrow. The plugs that go into those are mostly thin, flat, pieces of plastic with circuit traces on them like those shown below.

The picture above shows 5 connectors with plugs attached on the printed circuit board or "PCB" . The screwdriver is being used to lift the locking tab so that the gold colored circuit traces can be unpluged easily. The lock tab should be lifted to make plugging in possible.

Other connectors on the D70 are used to bring cables from outside of the camera to inside. An example would be the USB jack and your CF card connector. Other connectors allow the different PCBs in the camera to work together by sending and receiving signals between the PCBs. Here's a link to IR filter removal and D70 disassembly.

This is a pretty intense job you're performing so go slow, and pay attention to the parts (take pictures with your cell phone) you remove in each step to help you get it all back together again. I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

    The PCB part of the connector is white. The circuit trace is flexible and gold in color. The thin black strip on top is the hinged locking strip. Gently pry up from the circuit trace side of the black strip like shown in the photo. When it lifts up - the circuit trace will come out (and can be reinserted) easily.

Do the Nikon D100 and the D70 share the same in camera Compact Flash unit - not cards - but the hardware to accept and read the CF card? I have a bent pin in the D70 and want to know if I can change out...


I understand what your're looking for.

The D100 is basically an N80 with digital guts. It doesn't share the same chassis as the D70, although it does share the same excellent battery.

Other than that, the D70 was a new design, so it doesn't seem too likely that they would have the same CF sockets.

That being said, unless I had them both stripped apart on the table in front of me, I wouldn't make any bets. It just seems like there would be slight differences in mounting holes and configuration.

I have a Nikon D70. Camera doesn't read CF.


Sometimes pins inside take strain.  Read up on how to replace the CF pin unit.  Not too difficult as long as you don't force anything and remember to retrieve the little metal strip....

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, http://nikonusa.com/Service-And-Support/Service-Advisories/D70-Service-Advisory.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).

Nikon D70


I have the same problem....after searching some say get new card (I did) some say reformat (I have), some say clean pins (I would try this but don't know how) SO if you get any answers I would appreciate it. The only temporary solution that I have found is to Re-format (thus losing pics) or to simply pull the card out and put back in.

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$
