Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

I have a Minolta f300 camera whith an internal battery that needs to be replaced. Sending it to Minolta (Sony now) would require a flat fee of $181 which is of course morethan the value of he camera. I can remove the back case but the front case, which covers the internal battery, seems to be attached to the telephoto lens and does not seperate easily from the camer's internals. I don't want to force it and break something. What is the procedure for removing the front case? Thanks

I just took my entire camera apart so if you still need to know how to do this you can email me at mspcmd@gmail.com. the ring around hte lense pops off and there is a screw in the back on the bottom that also needs to come out. I can take pic for you. I ruined my camera doing this so may as well try and help someone else out.

Just do a Google search. There are a few hundred places to get the battery doors. They cost anywhere between $8 to $25, plus a few dollars for shipping.

This sounds like a defective Sony CCD issue. If so, Sony will fix your Minolta camera for free (with free shipping) regardless of warranty. You need to do this before March 31, 2008 so get going! See this link:

Camera will not turn on


I have the same problem- got this response from Sony (within 33 minutes of sending my email!)

Thank you for contacting Sony Support.
I am sorry that your Konica Minolta Camera does not turn on with the battery. I suggest that you try with different battery and check the operation. If the issue still persists, turn if off, remove and reinsert the battery, or unplug and reconnect the AC adaptor.
If the issue persists after following all the steps service will be required. You can find repair information and initiate service at:
http://eservice.sony.com
TIP: Be sure to change the "Product Company"
radio button to indicate Konica / Minolta.
Thank you for being a valued Sony Customer.
