Cannot get HP DPOF printer to print date on photo

I am using a Konica Minolta Maxxum 7d camera and an HP 6180 photosmart printer. I have set the camera to the mode for Picbridge and selected print date, but printer will not print date. It prints the photo directly from the camera, but without the date. When I turn the camera on, the Pictbridge logo comes on and I can do everything but get it to print the date.

HP lists the printer as DPOF compatible.

SOURCE: Minolta Maxxum 7D Lithium Battery Replacement

You need an NP-400 Li-ion lithium battery - I suspect ebay or Amazon can fix you right up.

SOURCE: CAMERA PROBLEMS

I had same problem, was about to consider sending for repair, then decided to try something: mounting the lens FORCEFULLY into position a couple of times. Working perfectly since. Apparently, some of the contact points needed some, er, tough love.

Now, when I say "FORCEFULLY", I mean "with authority", not with "reckless abandon" - don't go and snap everything into pieces!

SOURCE: won't take pictures

After a while of reloading camera firmware and resetting defaults, I came to this conclusion. You need to do a mock CCD cleaning on the camera which a built-in feature of the 7D, in which the camera locks up the mirror momentarily so you can clean the CCD. But of course you do not need to clean the ccd at this point. Below are procedures to help get your camera back in operation.

1.Try turning the camera off, then take out the battery.

2.Then replace the fully charged battery back in and turn the camera on but do not take any pictures.

3.Go to the menu of your camera and activate the CCD cleaning, which will activate mirror lockup.

4.You will hear a mirror lock up/half exposure cycle sound.

5.One you hear this, take the lens off and make sure you can see the CCD but do not touch the CCD or allow dust to get on it.

6.Now place the lens back over the camera and turn the camera off.

7.You will hear the mirror unlock itself, then the camera will shut down.

8.Now turn the camera back on and start taking pictures.

This worked for me and my camera started taking better pictures; however, the same problem came up again when I let the camera sit too long with a dead battery. So I repeated the procedures and my camera is back.

My advice is never leave a completely dead battery in the camera. Always store fully charged batteries in the camera.

SOURCE: BLANK (BLACK) PICTURES

Yes this is a common problem. Set the camera to take a long exposure shot (5 seconds) and with the lens off take a photo. Can you see the ccd or just the shutter (black)? If its just the shutter the shutter is jammed. It's basically a question of persisting with rebooting the camera and taking shots until the shutter frees itself.

SOURCE: BLANK (BLACK) PICTURES

symptom 1: referred to as FFB (Firts Frame Black). this is when you do not use the camera for a while and when you attempt to take the first snap shot, the Shutter is either stuck, or takes a blank/black picture (some cases the picture came out bluish). Sometimes the camera would freeze and you would need to remove the battery and re-insert it in order to reset the camera. Usually the camera comes back to life and and is usuable for a while until you store it. Sony will fix this free as they identified it as a design flaw in which the remedied (incorrect gear size for the Shutter charge assembly). Contact Sony support as they own all Minolta camera assets and tell them you have the FFB or First Frame Black problem and they will set up a ticket and instructions on where and how to send it.

symptom 2: Camera does not respond at all to the shutter release. Focus is fine, menu works, every function works no problem except for the most important - taking a picture (releasing the shutter). When you first turn on the camera, you hear the Antishift module attempt to center the CCD with a series of clicking noise for 5 or so seconds (not a good sign, also called the death rattle). All 5 AS bars in the view finder are blinking. In this case, the Tebure Assembly (AS Module) has failed and will need replacing. This is not cheap - sending it in to Precision Camera will run you around $250-$280. You can do it yourself if you order the assembly from Sony: Item - ( TEBURE ASSY ), U3008233U, $118.22 ea. via 1-800-488-7669 (will take 3-4 weeks). And follow the service manual to install and calibrate it (via the service manual download at http://www.dyxum.com/dforum/topic36109_post396839.html#396839).

However, if your camera experienced the FFB and then siezed (symptom 2) you can probably still get Sony to repair it free as its one charge for a complete camera repair. Call them up and tell them your situation.

Konica minolta maxxum 7d support


This is a common problem with the 7D. The shutter curtain will stick after several years of service. Put the camera in clean mode to get the curtain to lift, or send it to Sony to replace it. It was a design flaw by Minolta.

My minolta maxxum 7d won't take a picture....The shutter will push down but no picture will be taken. I tried it later in the day then it worked. Now today I tried, it worked this morning and then not...


Precision Camera picked up the responsibility for fixing the 7D and 5D Konica-Minolta cameras when Sony bought out K-M. I contacted them when my 7D wasn't functioning, and sent them my camera. Fortunately, on of the problems was "First Frame Black". Precision completely refurbished my camera and returned it to me in better than new condition. Sony picked up the full cost for the total refurbishing; all I paid was the shipping cost to Precision. I might add that my 7D was not in warranty. The URL for Precision Camera is:
http://www.precision-camera.com/ . Give it a shot.

Have you checked to make sure your batteries are fully charged? Thats what happened to me after my camera had sat out in a cold auto trunk for a couple of hours.

What is DPOF, and how do I use it?


DPOF stands for Digital Print Order Format. The DiMAGE 7 supports DPOF Ver. 1.1 so that you can specify the images and the number of copies to be printed and the print type. This technology enables you to take your Compact Flash Card to a Photofinishing Print Service, or personal printer, which supports DPOF, and print the selected images at the number specified automatically. DPOF also enables you to print an index print of all your images. Please see the DiMAGE 7 instruction manual for details about setting the DPOF.
