Does anyone know if Nikon addressed the "green light of death" issue with the newer models of the D70?* Thanks for the input!

This is all I know of the "GLOD"... different from the "BSOD" which only required a reboot in most cases! :? As for the GLOD on my D70, The Nikon service website indicates the parts arrived and the camera is in the shop. It is a "Class C Major Repair" but will be "Complimentary Service", aka... No Charge!

It is a latent fault in most D70's purchased (manufactured?)prior to September 2004 and is also well documented on the dpreview site. Nikon should repair irrespective of warranty having expired as it is a manufacturing issue."

QUOTE 2 : "It's my understanding that the problem with the FPC board (blinkng green problem) was fixed in D70's produced after Sept. 2004. Mine just came back from fixing. March 16 was its 1 year birthday."

This thread sums it up....
