Question about Nikon D70 Digital Camera
Posted by Anonymous on
Yes, I know exactly what your problem is. See this page. Nikon will fix it for free, even outside warranty! :) It may take a month or two though :( I have had my D70 fixed for this fault already.
Go to the Nikon website for your country, and find the same page there, it will give you return instructions.
There is nothing you can do to fix this problem, it is to do with a hardware component failing. firmware is irrelevant I'm afraid.

Make sure your memory card is OK. Take it out, put it back in or try another card. Be sure battery is charged. Should not see low battery sign in viewfinder or in top panel. Try a reset. There is a problem sort of related to what you describe where a firmware update may cure it. D70 Firmware Update 1.0.1 / 1.0.2 - Windows. One of the problems this firmware fixes is :"When images were captured in Continuous mode at an Image size setting of M and an Image quality setting of FINE, the memory card access lamp sometimes glowed continuously and the camera could not be turned off with the power switch. This problem has been corrected." This bit of advice comes from another Web forum, not my own discovery. Maybe this happened and ran down your battery, unbeknownst to you. Turn the camera off and power it from an electrical outlet. Update the firmware per instructions on the Nikon site. If this does not work or if your firmware is updated, call Nikon for further advice. You may need to have it serviced. This blinking light problem has been mentioned on PN and another forum. Nikon may be familiar with it already.
