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!!

My camera fell onto the floor and now the auto flash will not work. I can't get it to open even with the manual open button...


Something is bent has a dent, or is broken inside the camera. Whatever it is, I think it will be to expensive to go to a repair store, because of the work it take to open and replace broken things.
My suggestion? if you still can use it without flash, keep shooting as long as it works and start saving for a new camera.

My daughters Nikon D40 accidentally fell on the floor and now the flash has quit working. It still takes pictures fine it just won't flash. Is this something that will have to be repaired by a camera shop...


Hello,

Unless you are a camera guru my strongest advice is to have a professional take it apart to look at it. You could have very well have only broken the flash bulb or caused a connection to lose its seat on the circuit.

Shake the camera gently and listen to the flash for the "jingle" of broken glass. If you hear nothing, and are comfortable with taking the camera apart, unscrew the flash housing and check to see that the wires are all still well connected.

Cheers!

The camera fell off a desk onto a carpeted floor while uploading pics to the computer. Now the lens will not close properly and I keep getting a "lens error" message. Nothing looks cracked. Can this be...


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 are 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.

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.

Rebel Xt Sometimes when I try to take a pic it will not work!


one of my cameras does that. I shorted it out by using a non-compatible flash attachment. might need to take it in for repair. works fine without the flash though.

Lens won't open!


Had the same problem with my Canon SD550. I'm guessing that after the lens tries to erect itself the camera powers down? If this is the case, your lens is cocked perhaps from being dropped or bent in some way. There also might be debris lodged in there. This could result from keeping it in a purse or a pocket without a case. Try sticking a thin piece of paper to try and remove the debris if this seems to be the case.
