On top of camera body, press the button that looks like numerous pages (to right of BKT button), while at same time rotate command dial until a clock looking image (circle with arrow at approximately 11 o'clock) is displayed in control panel. I suggest you RTFM or if you don't have a manual. download from nikonusa.com and READ IT!!!
The D70 has a setting on the timer, and the explanation can also be found in your manual on page 105. Steps: 1. go to your "Custom Setting" menu (looks like a pencil) and go down to item 24, "Self-Timer." Select the number of seconds delay you desire. 2. Press the "Format" button and rotate the main dial until you see a small clock symbol on the Control Panel.
3. The camera is now ready for delayed shutter. Don't forget to set the "Format" back to S for single shooting afterwards.
Press the self-timer button just to the right of the LCD panel and confirm that the self-timer icon appears. Press the shutter release halfway to focus and meter. Press the shutter the rest of the way to activate.To cancel, either turn the camera off or press the self-timer button until the self-timer icon disappears.

I have had "dark pictures" from each of my Nikon DSLR (D70, D80, D200, D300) cameras usually when taking pictures from a tripod and/or the self timer. Situations where you take your eye away from the viewfinder which allows stray light to enter thru the viewfinder and throw the auto exposure way off. Not sure if this is what is happening to you.
You need to refer to your User's Manual. I have a D90 and referred to the Release Mode section/instructions. This enables you to select from modes such as "single frame", "continuous low speed", "self timer" and the two that you need for the Nikon ML-L3 remove controller - "delayed remote" and "quick response". Page 64 of the User's Manual or refer to Index of the Manual for the "Release Mode" section. All the best.
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$
The D70 has a reset button at the bottom of the camera. Firts of all, I think you have checked you have the correct lens inserted (at least D mount) and well done, checked your memory card is correctly inserted, and if you have another, change it.Checked the battery. Looked the AF modes on the body. If everything is OK, then press the reset button. If you have no answer, then take the camera to the T. Service.
Users of Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000 and Mac OS 9.x may experience problems trying to download images from the Nikon D70 using Nikon View. Initial shipments of the D70 have the USB option in the "Set up" menu set to PTP - Picture Transfer Protocol. PTP is only compatible for downloading images with Windows XP and Mac OS X.
To solve this issue please set the USB menu option to Mass Storage and then connect the camera to the computer. The D70's card will then mount like a removable disk and Nikon View will be able to transfer images
