Having problems with your Nikon D70 Body Only Digital Camera ?
The mirror in the my nikon d 70 is stuck in the middle and gives me message ERROR and LO F4 when i push to take a picture.
Try setting the camera to the 'M' manual mode and remove the lens. See if the shutter will fire and complete the cycle. You should have a memory card installed or have the menu set to 'No CF card'. If the shutter does fire, then re-mount the lens and return the mode to 'P'. If it does not fire the shutter, then it is likely the there is a malfunction with the mirror box components (a broken spring). That type of repair is not a DIY and will require a complete dis-assembly of the camera.

Error Message When I take a photo with Nikon D60 it's as though the shutter gets stuck and it gives an error message on the screen (Error! Press shutter release button again.)
