Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 Digital Camera
Hopefully you'll be able to guide me in the right direction because my camera is been a complete nightmare at the moment. The camera powers on and i can view all the previously saved photos but when i try to take a photo there is nothing coming up on the lcd or through the viewfinder. The lens does extend out so there is no problem with the lens. Does this mean my camera is wrecked?? It was wrapped up in my rucksack when travelling but was working fine when i returned. This was a pretty expensive buy for me and i really really need your help. Thanks for any advice you can give me
This sounds like a jammed shutter. There is a very delicate assembly inside your lens which blocks light from the image sensor at the moment you snap the picture in order for it to be able to record what it was seeing at that very moment. Normally after the sensor has finished recording the image the shutter will re-open allowing you to compose another image. If you see the icons and text as you would expect, but do not see any image - this shutter jam is the most likely cause. This assembly is so delicate that even slight impacts, condensation, or contamination from dust or dirt can cause the shutter to not open after it has shut resulting in a black image at all times. The shutter will sometimes clear itself and begin functioning again, but usually it requires disassembly and manual re-setting. Due to the complexity of the lens assembly in this camera (because of the anti-shake features) you will need to send the camera to the manufacturer if you wish to get this problem fixed.
