Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE F100 Digital Camera

3 Answers

Shutter will not fully open or close

The automatic shutter gets stuck at different points and causes a shadow in the image corner. It will not fully open when the camera is turned on and will not fully close when the camera is turned off. The only solution to this problem is invert the entire camera and shoot that way.

    My lens cover will not fully close or open by itself...I have to force it manually to open fully. I've taken this puppy to the beach and everywhere I go for several years...so I'm pretty sure it's due to dirt build up. Is there any way I can clean the mechanism myself? Is there a lube for the mechanism?

Try using a can of compressed air on the shutter mechanism. You may have a piece of grit between the blades. Also whilst the camera is switched off you can gently move the shutter manually when you do and there's something stopping it you'll feel it. Move the shutter up and down quickly and the grit may fall out. Even a gentle tap with the camera upside down and the right way up may dislodge any dirt. One of my customers had the audacity to put a dab of super glue on the shutter. He never had a half open shutter again. A bit drastic but it worked for him. He ended up fitting a UV filter to the lens and his lens is safe from damage or dirt. BMW

It sounds like the shutter mechanism is dirty, or you have a bad spring. Try taking it to a camera shop and have them clean it. It is not very expensive, and well worth it if it fixes the problem. Best regards, nightdiver Let me know if it solves the problem.

SOURCE: Problem with Shutter/Lenz

I guess you already had your camera fixed, but I was having exactly the same problem with my z5. I solved it by gently tapping the camera against the palm of my hand while starting it up. No violence, just a gentle tap! A few bucks (250 or so) cheaper than having a tech guy do it... :)

This is a known design defect in the cameras and Sony is repairing them, even if your warranty is expired.

SOURCE: Camera turns on fine, focuses

The circuit that drives the shutter needs to be replaced for a faulty capacitor is your problem
The capacitor holds voltage to run the shutter as needed although if not working the capacitor has a hair line crack in it that will lose power which will not operate the shutter no longer

Sticky shutter inside the lens


Not sure that you really mean shutter, or the automatic lens cover. See the description below for a stuck shutter. If that's not what you meant, then see this instead. A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

How do outdoor pictures look when taken with the camera? If overexposed, first check that your camera is in automatic mode, and not some other manual exposure mode of the camera.

There is no image showing up on the display. There are function icons on the screen and you can go through the menu but when you point to shoot a picture the screen is black with the icons.

Thre image does not show through the view finder or digital screen


If camera shows previously stored images correctly in playback but does not show live view in camera mode then it is ccd imager chip failure problem.
Replace ccd imager chip in camera by local camera repair shop to fix this issue.
Let me know if symptoms are different as above.

Shutter appears to be stuck closed.


Theirs oil on the shutter blades causing it to stay closed, Thats why you can't see though the lens or the viewfinder also, This comes from the grease from the zoom assy, It's a major job to fix it, Has to be fixed by a repair shop
