    I pulled out my D70 after a long idle period, only to discover a dead battery. I thought this odd, since it had a freshly charged one in it from barely 2 wks ago. So, I place another fresh battery in, and discover this constant blinking green light. The one that indicates writing to the CD card. Tried a different card, get the same thing. Anyone know what's going on here, and how I can fix it?

    That's bad............

    Mine's a VERY early example, the 1st one in my town, and this was a sudden failure. Looks like it goes in for repair. Sure not gonna try to fix it myself. D@mn, that's 1 cam & 2 lenses I gotta send in now! Dropped my 12-24 and my 200-400VR is acting up too.

    Steve, my D70 has the BGLOD too. Gotta send it in. First the D2H and now the D70. What a pi$$er. :?

    As an early D70 owner I'm starting to wonder if it's a matter of "when", not "if" I become a BGLOD victim. At least Nikon still seems to be fixing the problem for free in most cases.
     
  5. This is really beginning to get me worried...:( I have a short vacation coming up, I just hope it waits until I get back. I bought mine in March 2004 too. :shock:
