Having problems with your Nikon D70s Digital Camera ?

Nikon D70s - all photos turn out black

\015 I've got a Nikon D70s. (It's always set on auto.) The photos I take have always turned out a little darker than I would like (something I usually remedy in Photoshop), but over the past two days - since I last recharged the battery - all the photos I have taken have shown up COMPLETELY BLACK on the camera's screen. I mean, COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY BLACK. (And it's not because I'm leaving the lens cap on!)\015\012\015\012What is going on with my camera? Is there anything I can do to fix this myself, before I have to resort to going to a camera shop? (I live in a rural area - camera shops are hours away!)\015\012\015\012Thanks in advance for any help offered...\015

  3. Try a different lens.

I had the same problem. Black images on my Nikon D70, though everything was set as it should be. Playing with the settings, I found I could get a picture with shutter speeds of something like 5 seconds, as if the CCD sensor was barely working. I had JUST gotten my camera (used) today, so I was wondering if I had wasted my money, and was looking at a repair bill the first day.

I came across a comment in this link: http://www.fixya.com/support/t8167148-camera_not_displaying_images_as_seen

It TOTALLY fixed the problem!
With the camera turned ON, open the battery comparment, then close it again. My camera works perfectly in all modes now! The solution makes no sense, but it worked. I guess it has to do with getting rid of some sort of residual electrical charge on the sensor.

Black photos When I turn on my camera (Nikon Coolpix S5, I believe), I can access old photos and see the symbols that are usually on the screen when it used to take photos. However, if I take a photo with it, it is just black. The camera flashes and acts like it has taken a photo. There is no lens cap, so that is not the problem. Is the camera simply broken?

My NIkon D70s has colored streaks and grainy pixels throughout all of my photos. This happened a few times intermittently and cleared by turning the camera on and off. It is now worse and doing it on every photo. Turning the camera off no longer clears the problem. I have tried different lenses and the problem is consistent with all of them so it is specific to the camera itself. I have reset the menu but the problem still persists.

My kids accidentally dropped my Panazonic Lumix TZ-10 on the floor (not from a great height). The lens at that moment could only half close, but after turning power on and off a few times, now it opens and closes as normal. I can still view photos HOWEVER I cannot take new photos, the screen is black and the photos turn out black. I looked into the lens as it took the photo and there is no movement in there. The camera is still under warranty.


The warranty is unlikely to cover accidental damage but you could check if you have any insurance cover, perhaps in house contents or travel, or you might ask the retailer if he would help under 'goodwill'. It sounds as if the lens extension mechanis ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera

Hi, I have a camera, a Sanyo VPC-T1060 and it's having some problems. It turns on, flashes, takes photos apparently, but the LCD screen won't work. It turns white when I turn it on and when I take a photo with flash black lines appear all in the photo. I've tried finding a reset button, but nothing has been found. As I said, it takes photos, but I need the LCD screen to take a photo so I can see if I messed up and should take more. I'm a photographer and I got this camera as a side kick to my DS

Blank photos Hi I've had a refurbished rebel XT for a little over a year now. It worked great until last september or so when all of the sudden for the first 50ish pictures i take it records completely black photos. If I take enough the complete blackness becomes a few black lines and finally it takes normal photos, but only until I turn it off and then I have to start the whole process over again. I made sure my software was up to date and I tried two different memory cards. Any advice?

My LCD goes partially black when I turn the camera on and shows a diagonal display of the photo from the upper left hand to lower right hand corners. The amount not black is not sufficient to take photos. I can make the LCD give a full display if I "jiggle" the photo settings devise from view to photo. I have tried this about thirty times and it always restores the LCD. I asked Canon Service Tech Support if the problem merited repair. Of course they said yes, but the flat rate they charge

My Nikon Coolpix 4600 will take 1 photo, then refuses to take anymore unless it's turned off and then turned back on. When first turned on the flash and AF LEDs go on. After 1 photo is taken, the flash and AF LEDs won't come on. Pressing the shutter release does nothing. There are no alerts or other red indicators on the screen. The batteries are new.


I visited a brick-and-mortar camera store and asked a repair specialist. There I learned that the problem with my camera is a firmware problem and not worth fixing. I'll throw away the camera and buy another $150 disposable camera. ... Nikon Coolpix 4600 Digital Camera

Instead the screen stays black, and then the battery starts to get really warm. then i cant turn it on or off, the only way to get the batter to stop heating up, is to take it out of the camera. i can put the battery back in, turn it on again, but it will say no pictures had been taken, and the problem continues every time i try and use it.
