Minolta Z1 Digital Camera

Cannot switch to small viewfinder, seems to be a common problem, any suggestion I have the same problem. My eyepiece on Minolta Z1 is no longer functional. The LCD display still works, but I prefer the eyepiece. If anyone knows how to fix this problem, let me know.

I followed the directions that were posted on the free suggestions on your site:
Turn the camera on in viewfinder mode. Turn it off and turn it upside down in your hand.
Smack the bottom of the camera several times with your other hand.
Turn it back over and turn it back on. It took me three tries, but voila, on the third try, it worked!
I could see through the viewfinder again.

Cannot switch from LCD to viewfinder - Minolta Dimage Z1


Nothing adjustable here, Its more than likely the switch pole which is weither broken or worn. Not a DIY but also not an expensive fix

Thanks for using FIXYA

Could be your CCD - Minolta was bought out by Sony, they changed alot of their part numbers, but I do know of a Service Center in Florida.

Viewfinder on Minolta Z1 Dimage doesn't work


I had the same problem. I got it to work by adjusting the viewfinder focus back and forth, this is the little nob to the left of the viewfinder. Might work for you?

How much?


please use my real email account to deal with buying my battery door. $10 or for $25 I'll install it for you. keithtracypierceATcomcast.net

I am no expert at all, and the only camera I took apart was a Z3, which I did only to remove the battery door. dunno if Z3's similar to Z1; it IS similar to Z6 though.
Just a guess: electrical contacts at the viewfinder switch?

Viewfinder not coming on!


I found this "solution" on another site and it actually worked!
Turn the camera upside down. Now, with the device off, tap it a few times in your hand. Now, turn the device on in the viewfinder mode. Tap it again if the viewfinder isn't active.

LCD not working


I'm not sure what the Konica minolta policy is on this, but the right thing to do is to take responsibility when you get the same problem as one that had you replace or fix the product while under warranty. Offcourse it won't help you if that was already more than a year ago. I wish you luck, and next time don't buy konica minolta if you think they put out poor quality. besides, I heard they're coming out of the digicam business(which might not help you get service), but maybe I'm confusing with another brand.

Is my camera broken?


it is a 3.3 megapix camera and was expensive for its day so I would contact the repair department at Minolta but dont tell them it was dropped as they wont touch if you do and they may have a flat rate for the repair . I just bought a fuji 5.6 megapix for 200 bucks. Good Luck
