This is a newbie question and need help for my 1 day old D70. While experimenting with the various settings, I realized that I have accidentally locked the AF Point at the right hand side of the viewfinder. Tried to get help from the manual on how to unlock it but can?t seems to find the right page. Other things I tried are, power-off and on the camera, switch from spot focus to dynamic focus but none of them help.

Re: Need help to unlock the AF-Point
Below the thumb pad there is a lock switch. Make sure it's in the upper position then tap the shutter button. You should now be able to select your focus point. When in doubt press and hold the "BKT" and the "Meter" buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds. Both buttons have a green dot next to them. This will reset your camera to default settings.

Hiyour lens should be af-s 300/2.8 vr.. nikon product are all compatible. which means your d70 something wrong I think. If you have bundle lens with d70, you can check it out easy. usually d70 comes with af-s 18-55 which is pretty much same work method with af-s 300. THanks and best regard!
On the D7000 you need to press the button on the side of the camera that's in the middle of the AF/M switch and then you use to switch to decide whether it's in 1 point autofocus (hence forth called AF), 9 point dynamic area AF, 21 point dynamic area AF, 39 point dynamic area AF, 3D tracking AF or auto area AF. If you need more help with switching AF modes let me know and I can help you out =)
I would say no. Why bother to sell one old discontinued camera just to buy another discontinued one? The D60 adds very little in the way of new features to the D70 (automatic sensor cleaning may be the most major one) and removes one very important capability (the ability to autofocus with non-AF-S lenses). If size and weight are a major consideration, then the D60 is smaller and lighter than the D70. But so are the newer D3100 and D5000.
No, I really can't recommend moving up to a D60. Nor can I really recommend a D3100 or D5000. Bear in mind that the D70 is a midrange DSLR. The D60, D3100, and D5000 are entry-level DSLRs, more suited to photographers with no experience in DSLRs. If you really must move up, I'd suggest the D90 or perhaps the D7000 (not the D700). But if the D70 is still working for you, you may not need to move up at all.
The Nikon DSLR with the screw mount motor can be used. The older D50 and D70/D70S, D80, D90, D100, D200, D300/D300S and the pro series D1H, D1X, D2H/S, D2X/S and D3/S can use the AF lenses in A/P/S/M model.
You can set the focal point by toggling the menu switch (you can see it moving around into different locations as it "wraps" around the viewfinder, now depending on your f-stop the area that is not in focus will be soft, you can also experiment with the autofocus lock on you subject and evn try amnually focusing on your subjects.
Hey harleymomma, If the d70 is set to AF-S mode focus has to be achieved for the shutter to be allowed to take the photo. In some exposure modes the aperture must be locked down on the smallest aperture. I would also make sure the contacts are clean that allow communication between the body and the lens. Of course you need to make sure the body and the lens are set to autofocus. If none of this works I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

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$
