Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have a Nikon D70. Camera doesn't read CF.

I have a Nikon D70. Camera knows there is a compact flash but can't read it. Compact flash works in a different camera so that isn't the problem. Have tried resetting everything. The problem began when I was or had reformatted a CF. I may have opened or tried to remove it when green light was on. I tried several CFs and I get an error message that tells me it knows the CF is there but can't read the data. At this point, I can't taake photos, format, or anything.

    Can you get it to work with another card? If not, you may have bent one or more of the contact pins.

Sometimes pins inside take strain.  Read up on how to replace the CF pin unit.  Not too difficult as long as you don't force anything and remember to retrieve the little metal strip....

My nikon d70 will not regonize the sd card and gives a format signal

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.

Do the Nikon D100 and the D70 share the same in camera Compact Flash unit - not cards - but the hardware to accept and read the CF card? I have a bent pin in the D70 and want to know if I can change out...

I understand what your're looking for.

The D100 is basically an N80 with digital guts. It doesn't share the same chassis as the D70, although it does share the same excellent battery.

Other than that, the D70 was a new design, so it doesn't seem too likely that they would have the same CF sockets.

That being said, unless I had them both stripped apart on the table in front of me, I wouldn't make any bets. It just seems like there would be slight differences in mounting holes and configuration.

NikonD70 digital camera

You don't give much info but I'll assume you have a Nikon D70 'cos that's where you posted your question...1. Battery needs to be charged first. Get a cheap EN-EL3 battery and charger from eBay if you need these. 2. Put a Compact Flash (CF) card in. The camera locks the shutter if there is no card (to avoid the embarrassment of shooting all day and losing your images). CF cards themselves do not have locks. 3. If you just want to test the camera with no card you can enable this in one of the camera settings menus. Press the "Menu" button on the back, navigate to the pencil icon and find item 6 (I think). It is called "NO CF CARD" and the options are: LOCK or RELEASE shutter. 4. Of course you do know you need to turn the camera on first...? Turn the little black rotary button/ring around the silver shutter release button.

Nikon D70, displaying error code 'CHA' when memory card inserted. Unable to format or use memory card. Have tried new memory card, still same problem.

CHA errors indicate a communication issue with the CF card. Your card could be going bad, you could have a broken pin, or any number of other problems.

I'm running into this same problem now. If anyone has a good step-by-step to troubleshoot which of the dozen things this error could be, I'd appreciate it.

For myself, I'm planning to start by trying a new CF card.

Nikon d70 does not want to format

This camera allows at most a 4GB CF card, are you trying to use something larger, or does it do this with any size card? Also make sure card isnt write protected. Failing either of these suggestions, its possible that something has happened to the card slot internal to camera, they can be quite fragile.

Camera read CF card, but cannot see on USB or other media

You can connect the camera to the computer via a USB cable and use the camera as the card reader. It will show up as a mass storage device. You should then be able to copy the images to your PC and format the card once recovered.
