Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE X50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera only takes pics without flash

My camera fell out of my purse and dropped on the floor. Most things seemed to work fine after I turned it on except: 1)I think it takes a little longer to "wake up" and funtion after I first turn it on, 2) some images in the memory card say "unable to display" (only a few). The main problem is that now it won't take pics unless the flash is off. When I try to take the pic with auto flash or flash on, the green lights keeps blinking (as if it's trying to focus) and I cannot take a picture. It works fine without flash, but most of the pics I take need flash! Seems to be a problem with flash? or a sensor? Is it worth repairing? Who would I go to? Thanks!!

Dropped my Leica


Hi,

Try the steps given below:
1 Remove the memory card, then install the new batteries, when you turn it on it should work.
2 The next thing to try is examining both the battery and flash card door. There's usually a little switch on both doors that activates when the doors are closed. It will be a little piece of plastic on the door that pushes in on a pin switch when the door is closed. Closely examine both doors to try to identify these switches. A lot of times that little plastic nib wears down or breaks off, but can easily be a jury rigged with a small glued-on replacement.

If you still face the problem then there is some internal problem in camera, you need to take to service center to get it repaired.

Hope this helps.

If this is a new camera, it should still be under warranty. I suggest you contact Nikon before doing anything else to determine if the repair would be covered under warranty. Nikon also would be in a position to advise you as to what the problem might be so that in the event that the repair is not covered under warranty, you don't replace the wrong thing.

Camera felled to floor lens tries but cannot retract camera turns on and off fine, error message "lens error, restart camera" it appears that until lens can function properly and error message is resolved...


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

My nikon d40x got a little wet...


Not really a solution, But my camera and I fell in a lake. I took it ALL apart and didn't touch it for four days. It turned on and worked, though I had to re-set all my settings. The only thing that doesn't work is the "trash" button, and I can live without it :) good luck!

Hi Nancy This error is due to a few conditions that the camera might have been involved in. First the camera might have been dropped, powered on while in a case or in a purse or pocket. dropped in sand been at the beach around salt water. Any of these listed things could have caused your problem it could have also been a defective lens. But like most camera companies they do not warranty lens errors because they are one of the first things to go out because they fell they are right and you are wrong. now if you got this camera from a place like walmart or target. and you bought a extended warranty with it take it back. If not try any way you never know what they might do just tell them it is not doing right and you would like to exchange it for another one.

Take for repair - The cost will be about half the price of a new camera assuming that parts can be found. Get the new camera.
