I have a major problem with my Nikon D70, and I am a new user of a digital slr...what happened is, I was taking pictures when there was a sudden burst of rain, absolutely cats and dogs. I took some pictures in the rain and then when the rain increased, I shut it and put it back. Now, the camera refuses to start..even the LCD display which shows the number of pictures taken, is completely blank. I used a hair dryer to dry the camera inside out, without a direct contact and put the camera in dismantled form, which includes the lens, the camera body and the battery under a 100w bulb to heat the full unit so that moisture evaporates, but no improvement. The camera is dead as ever...what should I do? I bought this camera from a friend last week, 6 days back. I have few local guys in the city I stay but no authorized service centres.

Read the manual on how to do a two-button reset. Also: from the nNikon Support Page on the D70::

Yes. Be aware that due to what's often called the "crop factor" or "multiplication factor" the lens will seem even longer, about the equivalent of a 255-750mm lens. This is due to the fact that the sensor on the D50 or D70 is smaller than a frame of 35mm film.
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$
