Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z3 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Is a replacement battery compartment available, if so where from?

I have a Konica-Monolta Dimage Z3. My rechargeable batteries ran out so I replaced them with ordinary AAA's, that leaked! I have cleaned the battery residue off with cotton buds and a soapy solution. The camera will still not work, so I wonder if I need to replace the battery compartment?

Thanks & regards,

RJ Dexter

If any of the liquid got inside the camera it has probably damaged the circuit board. replacing the battery compartment will not help. if you are very good with electronics you can dismantle the camera and try to clean it and look for damage. but its a very intricate job.

Check on ebay to see if someone is parting out a broken camera. Otherwise you will have to get it from the manufacturer who will soak you for it.

Zoom stuck at telephoto

I had this same problem with 2 different Minoltas. One the zoom stuck when the battery got too low and the problem was fixed when I recharged the battery. The other was a mechanical problem and I had to have it replaced. Luckily it was still under warranty. Good luck!

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.

Camera not switching on

Take batteries out . Find a pencil with an eraser on the end, and with the eraser 'polish' the contacts at the base of the compartment. Also the contact strip in the lid. If this model takes 2 AA batteries find a piece aluminium foil to 'pack' the lid out. If it takes 4 batteries make sure two pieces of foil across each contact. Replace batteries -give it a whirl If no joy press the battery compartment lid in firmly an try. Still in trouble Then this is a more serious job for a repair shop However do get on to the Technical Support at Konica[Now Sony I believe] to see if any other remedy is available.
