Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z2 Digital Camera

1 Answer

No power after working sucessfully for a couple of years out of the blue the camera will not now turn on, I have tried various different batteries incase it was this but find it very strange that the camera should just die like this when it has not been dropped or damaged etc. I keep being told by people that it will probably cost more to replace the camera than to have it fixed, I find this hard to believe as it wasnt a cheap camera in the first place. can anyone please help

    I have the same problem. I have had the camera since 2004. This happened once before, but I can’t remember what I did to fix it. The camera has been well taken care of so it has probably just worn out. While taking a picture the battery exhausted text showed up and the camera shut off. The lens did not retract and I can't get the camera turned back on. It's like it is stuck in no mans land and doesn’t know what to do.

    I have replaced the batteries several times and played around with the buttons hoping to find a way to reset it.

    I had the same problem as everyone else. I bought the z2 in 2004. Great camera. Took it all over the world. Just stopped working in Jan 2008. It was well maintained and no drops.


    i guess ill buy a Cannon.

    I had the same problem too! I just turned off for no reason after working beautifully for 3 years! At least I know that I'm not alone! I'm also looking for a Canon.

Technology does move on in this camera business And folk are right- the cost of repairs will be high if a repair at all is possible - check the makers help site.

Canon SC100 Lens Error

I have a 3 year old Canon PowerShot SX100 IS. While testing an external battery power supply I built, the external power connector pulled out while the lens barrel was extending just after I turned on the camera. Power to the camera was lost before the lens barrel fully extended and wouldn't reset when I repowered the camera. The dreaded error message "Lens error, restart camera" appeared and the camera shut down. I restarted the camera over and over and over again but the lens wouldn't reset. I was extremely lucky to find the information here and read various fixes. I didn't want to take the camera apart so I tried various fixes others have successfully used. I first tried smacking the bottom of the camera hard with the palm of my hand just after pushing the on/off button but that didn't work. The one which worked was smacking the camera on the side immediately after I pushed the on/off button. I smacked it quite hard twice with the palm of my hand then, suddenly, the lens barrel began to move and the lens reset itself back to its starting position. Thanks to everyone who has posted here!

Canon PowerShot A630 power problem: NiMH batteries no longer work

I dont agree, I have tried several different batterie types and the batteries are draining almost instantly with the camera and they are not actually being drained. I think the camera itself is at the end of its I have used rechargeable batteries for the last few years and now they wont even show as being charged on the camera. It stinks Im in your same spot batteries are lasting even the brand new lithium has nothing to do with the battery "juice" but something with the canon supply power not recognizing/recieving the juice. Im not a canon expert, but I think the problem is more than the battery here Steve and im confused at the solution as well.

Dropped my camera.

Hello there,
The E18 error is related to the LENS not able to retract fully. If it is still under warranty, I would advise you bring it to the nearest service center. This is to avoid further damages. Otherwise, you can try a few things below.
There are a couple of things you can do.
1. Turn it on and then off. Spray canned air around the lens.
If trick 1 will not work out, try this.
2. Make sure the battery is fully charged. Turn on the camera and then give it a couple of firm whacks on the side. Make sure nothing is blocking the lens and wait for it to fully retract.
Let me know how it goes.
