NIKON D70 FLASH WONT LOCK DOWN. - Nikon D70s Digital Camera


Answers :

With the flash popped up, look under the flash head to make sure the little hook that comes up from inside the camera is not broken off. If it is, the whole top of the camera must be removed to repair it. If the hook is still intact, look for the very small hex socket under the flash head. Very gently turn it 1 or 2 clicks and see if the flash head will stay down. Do not push in too hard while turning it! If not, turn it 1 or 2 more clicks and try again. This adjusts the surface inside the head where it latches. If you do this enough times to where the adjustment has completed a complete circle and it still won't latch, it would need to be repaired by a camera repair shop because the solenoid is out of position.

I will likely be shot down by those who know more, but this worked for me. As stated before, there is a hex screw that you can adjust. A great suggestion!!! However, the adjustment didn't work on mine so I took the cover off the flash head by removing the two screws that are underneath the head and then pushing out where the hinge is. ( *** I also got shocked twice by touching the flash leads/wiring and it hurts like a mini taser - look up how to safely discharge the capacitor for the flash !!! *** ) The hex screw is a flat disk like a plastic washer with different thicknesses (kind of like the old spark plug gapper that you could put on a keyring). It is held in place by a metal plate spring, thus you can push the screw up with the hex screwdriver/allen wrench. I positioned the screw so that the narrowest part of the "washer" is where the catch tab would be able to slip over it but it was still too thick. I used a razor blade to carefully shave the washer down to size. I tested it a dozen times pushing on different areas of the flash hood to make sure it would work. Then put it all back together. Other than the danger of being shocked and using a sharp razor knife on really small parts, this is something I think most people could handle if they are used to tinkering with things that everyone sends to the shop for the professionals.
