Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE G400 Digital Camera

Dimage G400 white pictures

I've had my Konica Minolta Dimage G400 for a few years and I loved it but just as I was starting a 24 day European cruise, it broke down. So I had to buy what they sell on the ship. Every picture I take with it turns out white except if I use the zoom. Then they're ok but I can't always zoom. I tried to change the settings and return to the original settings but nothing works. Please anyone tell me if I should send it back to the company (no more warranty) and hope it doesn't cost too much or just forget about it.

    Overexposed pictures in daylight. Pictures inside are ok even without flash.

    I had white pictures too, after changing the memory card to 2GB one. I have changed the settings to the default, but nothing happened. For using it I've pushed the zoom button 2-3 times and after that it worked, but the object would be closer and I was very upset about it. I hope there is other - correct - solution.

    Me too - I have to zoom in a little bit and then it works.

    Some clues: When it doesn't work I don't hear any 'click' of the shutter opening and closing - I think the shutter is stuck open,

    I didn't change the card anywhere near when it failed.

    I also get the streaky lines in any reasonably exposed pictures if I don't zoom in. Sad

    my Minolta photos are almost all white and very faded, any ideas on settings or what the problem is?

  • Anonymous Oct 07, 2008

    Photos taken out of doors are white outs. Anything taken indoors , with or without flash are normal.

    Do you think it is a setting that I inadvertantly changed?

I have experienced the same issue after approximately 4 years of use. Photos taken outside appear white while ones taken inside or in low light have lines accross it.
I contacted the authorised repairers in Australia and was advised that the lens apeture has broken and that the required part is not longer available. Even when the part was available it cost $300 to fix so it was never economical to get it repaired. The camera can now not be used.

As far as i have read, there seems to be a lot of people out there who have the same problem. it is after 2-3 years of usage, and with no real solution available. just seems like a factory fault in that particular model.

I have exactly the same problem as dbrad :(
Also, where the light level is between daylight and inside, the hotos are like a 1950's TV with horizontal bands.
So I'm buying a new Canon A470 on Wednesday.

All of a sudden outdoor shots are terribly over exposed and indorr shots are over pixelated and streaky. From time to time a decent shot can be obtained using the telephoto function. I love my little...

Konica Minolta stopped producing digital consumer cameras a few years ago. As a result parts are very hard to find and it is difficult to repair these models. Unfortunately an issue like streaks on the image is usually a shutter mechanism problem and the part would need to be replaced. You'll most likely be better off buying a new camera.

Am I able to use a 2GB SD card in my Konica Minolta Dimage G400 camera or could this cause problems.

This camera has been discontinued, and is no longer sold as new. There are still vendors that sell accessories for this camera including batteries and SD memory cards. A google search of "dimage g400 memory" reveals a number of retailers that sell SD cards of varying sizes up to 2 GB specifically for this camera.

Going beyond 2 GB however, will probably give mixed results, as most cards 4 GB (the next size up from 2 GB) are SDHC type cards. An SDHC card looks identical to the SD counterpart, but is manufactured to a different specification. The SDHC specification was developed after you camera was made, so use of cards bearing the SDHC mark is not supported.

I hope this helps!

Minolta dimage g400 camera...cannot get the lens to close

Your problem is likely due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may require professional repair.
