The behavior you describe is a camera connected to a computer and it changes WHILE the computer sees the camera and it is ON (computer). When you shut down the Computer it will blink rapidly and it will not charge. if you charge with POWER ADAPTER. It will only BLINK while it charges. When it STOPS blinking it is FULLY charged.

Nikon Cameras | Answered on Jun 02, 2018

1) Make sure it is fully charged.
2) make sure you have enough light and it can focus.

This question is way too open. 1000 things could be off.

Most cameras need power. many modes REQUIRE a Good Focus before it will take a photo.

You can Download a PDF manual from Nikon for FREE. Even if I have a paper manual I like the PDF because I can search it, and that can save LOTS of time.

Just putting in a memory card will not necessarily give your camera memory. Step 1 will all cards is a FORMAT FUNCTION when the card is first installed. It ALSO has to be a compatible card.

Nikon has done what many companies have done. Taken parts off their website. This means you cannot BUY anything but accessories. This forces you to send it to a Nikon Certified Service Center where they'll QUOTE the job before repairing it. If you send a camera in always ask about cleaning it too. (if it is old).

Please turn off the camera BEFORE you plug it in. Most cameras start-up in connected mode when you do this. Please understand this may NOT help you. It is merely all I can offer.

Nikon Cameras | Answered on Jun 02, 2018

sadly we can not as we do not have any or their information on this repair forum

Nikon Cameras | Answered on Jun 01, 2018

Memory cards can and do fail. Try formatting the card in a computer and then format it again in the camera. If this does not work, then the card has failed.

Your Nikon does not need drivers. Just use the CD that came with the camera or download the software you need here: Current versions of Nikon software Nikon Knowledgebase View NX2 will do for downloading and mangling your pictures. It is free. Be aware not all software on this link is free or can be used with your Nikon.

This camera supports MACRO mode. Please makes sure the MODE you are shooting in SUPPORTS MACRO mode. For example in FIREWORK mode MACRO is disabled. This mode is often shown with FLOWER symbol.

That camera should handle SD,SDHC and SDXC memory cards. Small cameras do not typically show capacity. You shoot until it is full. One way to test the capacity is to take a long movie. My larger DSLR will tell me how many shots I can store with the current resolution. My Coolpix cameras do not show this information.

Many cameras when in certain modes you cannot turn the camera off. This is rare. Check the mode and camera settings. In many cases the button may have to be held for a moment before it shuts off.

When you are in MANUAL mode you can change the APERTURE (F-stop) and SHUTTER SPEED (time) Yes you SHOULD be able to set the Aperture to F/22. You should be able to change the F-Stop too..

Are you running this with Administrator privileges ?

The D70 uses CF (compact flash) cards - I hope you are simply misnaming the CF card. But, if you did use an SD card, it would explain how you could have bent a pin.

I understand that Nikon is moving away from CF cards because of the 'bent pin issue' as well as the limited capacity of the CF card.

So, first I would try a CF card (any size) in the reader. If it still doesn't work, then I think you might check with a camera repair shop. If it is a bent pin, they can fix or replace the card reader. Note that the D70 body can be replaced with an EX rated used body for under $90 at https://www.keh.com/shop/nikon-d70-6-1-megapixel-digital-slr-camera-body-only-9782.html

Thus, I wouldn't pay $100 to have the reader fixed unless there are extenuating circumstances. Good luck.
