Default D70

I have a Nikon D70 and I have never had any problems with it. One day
it was working fine and the next day with nothing changed it started
having problems. What happens is with no settings changed and on Auto
or Manual I will take a picture and #1 may be fine, #2 will be blacked
out, #3 fine, #4 blacked out, #5 everything will be whited out. and so
on and so on. I have checked all settings and just can't figure out
what happened. Any help would be great.

Have you tried a different lens on it? You may want to give a different one a try in case it's an odd lens issue. It could also be an electrical problem. This model was prone to what is often referred to as BGLOD (Bilnking Green Light of Death), which Nikon was fixing for free. See this article about it:

http://www.steves-digicams.com/news/...5-users-3.html

So, it's possible you're seeing some early symptoms. But, I'd probably rule out other sources first. For example, try a different lens (or remount the one you have to make sure electrical contacts are making a good connection), use all dial switches and buttons on the camera in case one is stuck or has as bit of oxidation causing an electrical problem, try a different battery if you have one (or clean the contacts on an existing one, etc.). Battery issues can sometimes cause odd problems.

BTW, Welcome to the forums.

Also, I moved your thread down to our Nikon dSLR Forum (we have a separate forum setup for dSLR models like your D70)

A friend of mine had a similar sounding problem of a D70s. He got it fixed under warranty, I believe it was a sensor fault.
