Getting a black spot on one corner of picture. Any suggestions why this is happening?

It is not unusual for a camera's sensor to have a pixel fail this way. Most sensors consist of 100's of thousands or more pixels that make up the sensor. Each responds to the color and intensity of the light projected upon it by the lens. It sounds like a pixel on your sensor has failed and is "dead" or "stuck" in a dark state. Pixels can fail "hot" on a single color, too.

The bad news is that it is not possible to fix a stuck pixel. The sensor itself is the smallest replaceable part and is often times not worth the expense of replacing. Compare costs of replacing the part vs the cost of replacing the camera and decide which way to go to be sure.

I did see some Minolta specific info that you might want to look at first here.

The good news is that there is software that will allow you to mask the pixel. Google search for "stuck pixel software" for a list of results. The software analyzes the pixels around the non-functioning pixel, and makes it a color that is far less likely to be noticed. Other software may perform functions that restore functionality to the pixel and others still that do something else. I am unsure of how well the former methods work or how long they might work. Software that changes the output file is the type I used and it seemed to work well. Each file needed to be run thru the software to make the change however.

Good luck!

I have had a dark distortion on half the screen for some time now but it would snap back to a regular picture after half an hour or so . But now the dar and distortion won't go away. Any help out...

Their is most likely a problem with the pixels in your display. the reason why it dose this is that after the television warms up (about half and hour) the pixels adjust and start to work properly the only fix would be to replace the entire screen

I have death pixels.... can I do something with that?

Most digital camera's sensors have these so called 'dead pixels' or pixels that aren't functioning. It's normal for your camera to have dead pixels and you cannot do anything to repair it. But some cameras have a certain feature to resolve this issue, the process states that the user manually marks the area of the dead pixel and the camera will try to blend it so that it will appear to more natural. It works by blending the dead pixel to the nearest color of your image.

I was just on Skype and the guy I was talking with said he saw a green stripe in the video he had of me. It was vertical and did not change with camera positoin. I did not see the stripe on my side. He has...

I can think of two possibilities. The hardware is not working porperly, or the camera's physical connection the the computer is not completely working. Try reinstalling the drivers and plug the camera into a different port. If that does not work, my next guess is the manufacture process of that camera is shotty and some of them do not work properly, I would exchange mine with a warranty if possible.

Picture Pixels are related to CCD Imager and data processing circuits in camera.
Want more picture pixels, buy new model camera having more pixels capability.

My camera was also ordered from They have been very helpful and my story is almost identical to yours for their return/replacement practice.
