Having problems with your Nikon D70 Body Only Digital Camera ?

Nikon d70 keeps popping up with "CHA". Wich means


Answers :

You could try formatting in on PC by right clicking the card's icon in My Computer to bring up the options, then format it on the camera as well
I had a D70s with this problem. First don't format it on a PC if you can help it. Reformat it using the camera first but if there is a problem use your PC but do remember to format it as FAT see here for more details https://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/313/~/formatting-pc-cards-for-use-in-nikon-digital-cameras
\012 There are a couple of solutions.
\012First try reformatting the card in the camera
\012Second try reformatting the card in a PC
\012Third Buy a new card (nothing bigger than 8 gig)
\012Four Try taking the card out after turning the camera off and then putting it back in reseating it. Push it in quite hard using your thumb.
\012If none of these work you may have to replace the card reader
\012here is a step by step guide https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Nikon+D70+CF+Slot+Replacement/9408
\012You can buy a nikon D70 card reader quite cheaply on ebay. When had this problem I found I didn't even need to buy a new card reader, I found if I opened the camera up and reseated the reader flex cable it fixed the problems and the camera has worked like new ever since.

My Canon EOS XTi keeps giving me an 05 error code which means that the pop up flash was impede . It does this every time even though I have made sure there is no obstruction at all.
