My minolta won't take picture, shuts off giving me err msg

Everything seems to work with the camera. It turns on, I aim as I press the button to take picture the camera automatically focuses. The two led indicators let me know it is done focusing and as I press the shutter button to take picture, nothing happens. No flash, no picture captured. The camera gives me an err msg on top and then it shuts itself off. The batteries are fully charged, What do I need to do ?? Please help. Thank you.

How do i take pictures

Press the MODE button repeatedly until the Ct symbol shows on the LCD screen.
Press the shutter release button within five seconds to activate continuous shoot mode. Hold down the shutter release button and the camera will rapidly and repeatedly take photos.

8x25 minolta compact bionoculars center focus knob will not turn. Have taken screw off center knob and removed 4 rubber strips on bionocular body and looks like allen? screw underneath. No obvious way...

They don't make these things easy to take apart, or fix. Here's your best shot- take it into a camera repair shop, and see what they say. Some tech might know what you have to do to get it apart, or if it can come apart without damage or special tools.
Unfortunately, only the repair techs know how, and there aren't too many (if any) of them, since they often just charge a set amount and send a refurbished or new pair to the customer.
Wish I had a more specific answer, but good luck to you, and with just a bit, you'll figure this out.

My Binos are doing the same thing, I think it is some fixed mode it is stuck in. Anyone know how to get is back to normal working? Maybe the big AF button is stuck on?

No contents with binoculars

The best solution is to return to Kmart & get your money back as fast as you possibly can! I have a set of these that we just got & the binoculars are great but the pictures are HORRIBLE, 9 times out of 10 the picture isn't even what you're aiming at! I have yet to be able to get a picture to be non blurry let alone of what your aiming at!!!
Good Luck!

No pictures??

This sounds like the same problem I had. I could not find a solution without losing the photos that I had already taken. Try reseting the camera. In the menu clear all the photos out of memory. If the picture counter doesn't reset you may need to physically kill power to the camera (by pulling out the batteries) this will delete any photos in memory and reset the photo counter. Once you are sure that the memory is empty. Try taking some test photos and reconecting to the computer to see if the software sees the new photos. You may want to delete and reload the camera drivers before you connecting the camera.
