Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE G400 Digital Camera
Hello, I cant manage to slide the camera open it's stuck it only moves a little bit. I've tried new batteries, blowing out dust,forcing it open. If it does need repair can you recommend somewhere close to Marrickville, sydney. Thanks
It sounds like the lens hasn't retracted sufficiently and it's catching on the sliding door. Make sure you remove the batteries before trying this and don't go poking your fingers near any circuitry. The flash, if charged can give you one hell of a zapp It's a very simple matter to remove the front of the camera and slide the door open and replace in that position. Just be careful of the two fine wires running from the door to the camera. These are connected to the microswitch which turns the camera on when the door is opened. The whole procedure should take no more than 30 minutes just don't lose the screws. When you have everything back together reinsert the batterias and the lens should extend. Then try closing the door and then opening it again giving the lens time to retract and the camera to shut down. If the lens doesn't move you've got bigger problems.
