I've had my D-70 for over a year and have had no troubles with it and taken thousands of photos since.

It has been sitting in the camera bag for the past month. I took it out today, switched it on, but the LCD did not go on. It displays the exposure count, but nothing else. Meanwhile, the green light (drive activity?) on the lower back of the camera blinks continuously.

I have recharged the battery, removed the card, but so far cannot get the camera to go on. Does anyone have any tips I could try? Is there a way to "reset" the camera, in case this is a software issue?

This is quite odd, since it worked fine, and stopped working while it was not even being used...

BGLOD---The blinking green light of death. You will need to have your camera repaired.
