Having problems with your Nikon D70s Digital Camera ?

Nikon D70, error "F..."

\015 Hi! I bought a Nikon D70 from a friend in Jan 2008. She is a professional photographer who keeps up her cameras very well. She has recently gone to a D200 so sold me her "extra." I used the camera for a month and then sporadically I get an error "F..." where the camera will not take any photos. It is like it is frozen. I have searched the manual but see nothing about this error. Can you tell me what it is and give suggestions on what to do? Thanks!\015

Answers :

The most basic reason for getting the FEE message is that you're using a older series of lens that has an aperture ring on it (meaning you could manually change f-stops on the lens), regardless on most current Nikon cameras that ring needs to be set to f/22 or whatever the smallest aperture (largest number) the lens has.  Give that a try and if that doesn't do the trick it could just be dirty contacts either on the lens or inside the camera.  They can be cleaned with alcohol or contact cleaner and a q-tip.  Worst case scenario, you're lens has some internal problems.  I suspect that one of the first scenarios is most likely.\015\012

I have a Nikon D70 camera. I'm using a Lexar 2GB card inside. Problem focuses on the card. Previous to this moment, card has worked fine. Today, shot photos and when I hooked up the camera to download the pics, got an error in the viewfinder (CHR). Looked at the manual, and it said problem was with the card. I removed the card, and placed it in a card reader. It worked fine and I was able to transfer the photos. Replaced the card, and still get the same error. I've already re-formatted the card,

First, memory cards don't last forever, so it may be time for a new card. Make sure you check the pins in your camera and the contacts in your card for dust/dirt. I'd guess you already looked at this, though. \015\012\015\012I've had s ... Nikon D70 Body Only Digital Camera
