Won't turn on

I put my Minolta Z3 away a few weeks ago after using,then got it out today and it won't turn on. I replaced the batteries (twice) with no results. Any ideas? It wasn't dropped that I'm aware of.

Re: won't turn on

Try inspecting the battery contact points in the battery enclosure. Make sure to check the points deep in the well to make sure you have no corrosion in there. Just a little moisture can cause problems.

Also determine if the place it was stored was affected by heat of cold.

These are a couple of thoughts, maybe they will help.

Camera does not turn on

Rosa, I think the only thing you did was get out the batteries and tried to charge them and then jut put them back in the camera.
Only a few things could have gone wrong.
One or more cells could have died, during charging. It can happen, special with batteries that have a uneven use. Like once or twice a year the camera comes out the box and then the batteries are charged. Even when you don't use he camera, make it a habit to charge the batteries every few months.
Then it could be your batteries are still in good shape and fully charged, but you put in one or more calls the wrong way around.
Please check carefully if all the cells are inserted correct.
If nothing works, and you can't check the voltage of your batteries, try another set of batteries.

Konica minolta dimage z3 4mp digital camera firmware 1.3u can't find the software to download

You don't need any software.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

You can quite often find parts or broken camera on Ebay for parts. Only you know what your level of technical expertise is to repair. This is not a hard repair. What you have to ask is the age of the camera worth the cost.

Dimage Z3 lens does not retract

Check your batteries. Are they working? Try taking them out and replacing them. If you left the camera on when you put it away and the batteries drained, you won't be able to retract the lense until fresh batteries are inserted and the camera is powered up again.

Focus/zoom issue with Konica Minolta Dimage Z3 digital camera w/ 12x zoom

This is a symptom commonly listed for DiMAGE cameras listed on EBay for 'parts only'. Dropping the camera I had caused the same problem and carefully 'smacking' the camera once again did solve the problem but that may have been dumb luck. Sorry but it is a service task that may cost more than the camera.

Dimagez3 Battery Options

Hey bray598,
According to the manufacturer this camera comes with AA alkaline batteries so unless you bought defective batteries the ones you purchased should work fine. I would make sure the batteries are inserted properly, and make sure when you turn it on the battery cover and/or the memory card cover are closed. I hope this helps.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
