Re: Camera freezes after taking picture

Shooting in the dark here, but the basic things you should try before all else is another mem card, and new compatible batteries. sounds more like a card problem though. hope it works out

two reasons for this are possible:

Black screen

Try downloading the photos to a computer. If this doesn't work there may be a problem with the flash chip. If so, try reformatting it - that worked for me when I had a couple of photo storage locations that constantly put up garbage displays and produced file error messages on downloading.

To see the picture you want to take on the screen, your camera needs to have a feature called "live view". I'm not sure if your camera has that feature. It's a relatively new feature on more expensive cameras. Check your owner's manual.

I have a Minolta Maxxum 5D which I really like. I take a lot of pictures outside with my job. I have a telephoto lens and a regular lense as well. I switch lenses a good bit depending on the shot. ...

It can occur if the contacts on the lens where they meet the contacts on the camera body need cleaning. Try a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Precision Camera picked up the responsibility for fixing the 7D and 5D Konica-Minolta cameras when Sony bought out K-M. I contacted them when my 7D wasn't functioning, and sent them my camera. Fortunately, on of the problems was "First Frame Black". Precision completely refurbished my camera and returned it to me in better than new condition. Sony picked up the full cost for the total refurbishing; all I paid was the shipping cost to Precision. I might add that my 7D was not in warranty. The URL for Precision Camera is: . Give it a shot.

Camera freezes after taking picture

I had this problem with my s1000 Fujifilm, but solved it by changing the standard SD card for a SDHC class 4 card. It no longer freezes when a flash is used! I've tried a 4Gb and a 16 GB SDHC class 4 card and both are fine.

Can't format memory card on maxxum 5D

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    The P-channel MOSFET switching the CF power is dead. It is on the little board directly above the battery compartment. SOT23 package, the marking is 338 or something like that. Replace it and it will work.

    Lack of image

    There is a known problem with the 7D and some early 5D's where sometimes when you turn the camera on and take a picture it is all black and the camera locks up. You can turn it off and back on and the problem goes away for awhile. Don't know if this is what ou are experiencing. If it is, Sony (who bought out Konica Minolta's camera division) will fix the problem for free. Just had this repaired on my 7D.

    It sounds like that's the first black frame problem that is a fairly common defect with the cameras, so much so that Sony is repairing it for free, for more info, see:
