Works like new. To disconnect this cable, carefully slide the black part of the connector downwards, towards the cable. Nikon said the camera neeeded to be serviced-fortunately I have an extended warranty, but noted that the problem was seldom repaired by service facilities. http://windowsazure4j.org/nikon-d70/nikon-d70s-error-cha.html However, I've never seen anyone on the internet give a solution.

This was true for both the D70 and D200 cards.

After this is done, insert it back in to your camera and do another format.

If so, did it make any diffeence?

It doesn't have any connectors, so it should come off quite easily. Since we have to send off the camera for repairs anyway, a D80 is on the way. I decided instead to simply heat each pin with a very sharp soldering iron to reflow the solder that was present. The manual I used is on http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/d70/d70...

If the problem persisted I would point to component failure. I am also looking for solution, and found some useful information. Also when reassembling I scraped the end of the ribbon connector to make sure there was no oxidation or connectivity issues. I just want to know what the deal is with this.

Lawrence New memberUsername: Holysnappers180Post Number: 2Registered: Feb-07 Posted on Tuesday, February 13, 2007 - 09:38 GMTthanks for your help!!! It worked for me!!!! For the CHA error, that means your card is not formatted properly and the camera will not be able to do anything with it (again a side effect of a bad no reproduction without explicit written permission.

I will most likely still get a Lexar or something since they are coming down in price nowadays... Changed cards immediately and retrieved all images, the reload is for prevention. Should I scrap the D70 and switch to a different brand of camera? The best way to do this is by using the tweezers on the side parts of the connector.

And how would a repair like this cost or is it even worth fixing? They are both in red. Make sure they are all seated correctly and not at an angle. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

Transferring pictures by using the camera uses up a lot of battery power and I highly discourage this type of transfer. Recently with a 4 GB Sandisk Ultra card, this operation has resulted in the lose of all previous pic. this is what works for SOME people with the Nikon D70 flashing CHR (or whatever). Because I've seen this problem all over various messege boards on the internet with the D70 and the D70s with every kind of memory card under the sun.
