Black marks on pictures

I have bought Nikon D70 for a year. It has been working excellent. However, in the last trip, I noticed there are black marks at the bottom of every picture I took. So I had my lens cleaned and it happened the same. The same position, the same black marks. Does anyone know what wrong with my camera? PLease recommend how to solve the problem

Every once in awhile set your lens to f/16 or so and take a couple of photos of total frame = clear blue sky. Download to PC and inspect the images at 100%, checking for dust splotches (or 'bunnies' as they are often called). Save those images for comparison with blue sky shots taken after sensor cleaning. This is the DSLR routine. :)

It appears that you have dust on your sensor that is recording in the same place on each image. It is a common problem with digital cameras. If you are adept at cleaning the sensor yourself, it is a relatively easy chore. However, if you have any doubts about it, take it to a reputable camera dealer and let them do it.

HOW TO SOLVE BLINKING BLACK SPOTS IN MY NIKON D70

I can duplicate your issue on my Nikon D810. You may have set it to display the areas that are over exposed or "clipped". Go to "Playback Menu", select "Playback display options", uncheck "Highlights".

I bought a Nikon D70 on ebay for a good price. It has a 28-80 lens. I can read the menu on the monitor, but it is black when I want to take a photograph. I can use the viewfinder, and take a picture, but I...

No, you shouldn't. The D70 works as SLRs have worked for half a century, allowing you to compose your photos through the viewfinder. The ability to use a dSLR as a point-n-shoot camera, wobbling at the end of your arms, is a relatively recent development. Nikon introduced it into their lineup with the D3 and D300, released years after the D70.

When i took a picture with my nikon d70 the the outcome is quite bright where to adjust. i'm a beginner

1. You could lower the ISO setting. 2. You could lower the "exposure compensation" setting. It's the button that's half-black/half-white with a plus and minus. There are many other ways but you really should carefully read your instruction manual and experiment.

My Nikon D70 camera takes pictures that come out completely black

Check the MODE. With ANY camera with manual mode you can take black (underexposed) photos all day. If photos are black try and use an AUTO mode. Typical it has a GREEN Camera symbol. So many things can be set wrong on the camera and they are beyond this answer.

Nikon D100: suddenly all the pictures are black

Ellen,
When shooting with the D100 do you have the dial on top of camera set to 'Auto'? If so, then most likely you have some how adjusted to the exposure compensation, so your photos are underexposing.
To reset your camera to the factory default settings:
Hold down the bracket and flash button for two
seconds.
These are the buttons marked with a green dot
Take a test photo and see if that works.

Stray line on viewfinder

These lines are normal. See the last paragraph on page 8 of the D70 manual.
