Unfortunately on your model the flashing H means there's an electrical fault which needs repair.
In practice, it's an old obsolete model and few spare parts will be available. Any kind of professional repair will cost far more than the camera is worth. But as almost all 35mm compacts are now virtually worthless it means that you can get fantastic models for free or very cheap. All of mine have come for free via FreeCycle, Freegle, and by just asking people I know as most have unused and unwanted cameras lying around. Even the superb and very under-rated Canon Sureshot Classic 120 which has one of the sharpest lenses ever put onto a 35mm compact can be had for zilch as the batteries cost more than the camera is worth (new batteries: about £10).
Sorry this is not the answer you hoped for, but I hope that it enables you to fix the problem in a different way at almost no cost.
Cleaning a lense for fungus is an iffy if not impossible procedure most of the time as the fungus attacks the material of the lense itself and parts of the lense have to be removed to remove the fungus.
But, the good news is any dealer of new or used equipment will have K-mount lenses. You can find both new and used lenses from B&H, KEH, Adorama, Calumet, and others - though those are some of the most reputable online/mail-order dealers of used and new equipment. You can find almost any kind of lense you'd desire.
Hi. As a pro photographer, I can tell you what 'macro' does on all cameras or lenses. 'Macro' focusing is for focusing on close objects, say an inch or two from the lens to a couple of feet. It is for closeup shots, say ants, or a fly, or someone's eye, raindrops on glass, etc. Try it out sitting on a patterned countertop or table or tablecloth to give you an idea, focusing far away and up close. As far as the manual, there doesn't seem to be anything on the official site unfortunately. Good luck and have fun. http://gi.konicaminolta.us/index.asp
The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the
probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.
these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the
shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens ,
and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then
try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may
cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and
then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to
not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and
down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the
camera is enough to get things going again.
Try hitting your
camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair
center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to
replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest
you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any
off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about
warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.
there should be a small but long narrow window on the back of the camera that should tell you if theres film in ther or not.
to open the camera, flip the rewinding crank (located on the top left) and pull up until the back pops open.
