Konica Minolta Z6 camera lens won't retract or zoom out

Unable to focus camera as it seems to be stuck in max zoom mode. When camera is switched off the lens does not retract. Lens motor seems to be working but not at correct time.
Any helpful advice would be much appreciated.

I have the same problem. The lenses does not retract when turned off or function with the zoom control when turned on. Has anyone found a fix?

    If you replace the batteries with stronger, fully charged batteries the problem will go away.

Digital Camera Auto Focus Fault


It may be the mechanism is sticking slightly, which means taking any bits off and getting your puff-brush or can of compressed air blow into it.

It also may be a firmware issue, try going to the Minolta website, follow links for support and downloads, see if there are any firmware upgrades for your camera.

Konica Minolta Dimage Damage


I had the same problem with mine, a minor fall cracked this, I disassembled the unit and one of the springs that hold the main sensor was broken, thus the sensor vibrates instead of "floating" when the camera is turned on. There are two possible solutions: The first is to get a faulty Z6 from eBay and get the parts (the main sensor assembly) and have it replaced. (If you are not comfortable working with 1mm screws, you'd better go with the parts to a camera repair shop and explain them the problem. The second solution is un-elegant but useful: If you disconnect the anti-shake circuit from the main board you won't have the annoying vibration at start, and the focus will work properly. I've done this and I am happy with the result (I rarely used the anti-shake feature, so I don't miss it). For reference, the anti-shake circuit ribbon is the one entering the mainboard just under the left side of the screen.

Ejoy.....
PS. if you have dark spots, chech that the sensor assembly is not too out of place or that a piece of the broken assembly is on the way. Realign it in place (and please don't touch it). and asseble tha camera back

HELP!!!!!


Does the barrel fully retract when the camera is shut down? I suspect a mechanical problem... If you're not very technical, I do not recommend opening it up... Try whapping the objective a little. I'm not kidding; the problem may be caused by some gears that got stuck... Otherwise, it could be quite hairy because the zoom motor or its controlling electronics could have gone bad...
