Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE G500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Konica Minolta D G 600 Zoom does not open fully

My friend took the camera to Egypt and perhaps was exposed to dust. Is there any way to clean it without sending to the Minolta company as this costs more than the camera.

Its possible to take the camera apart, but I don't advise it.

Perhaps by continually moving the parts you may be able to dislodge the dust.

Try putting some high pressure air onto it (I don't know how to do this myself), the sort of pressure you'd get from a car tire pump.

Use a fine needle to try and prise it out.

Buy yourself a new one.

Konica Minolta Dimage E50 suddenly over expose. Indoor at night, the picture looks almost normal. Daytime the wall will be too white. Outdoor the picture is white out.

The shutter cable inside the lens has broken - a common problem with the E50. The cable moves as the lens zoom so it brakes at some point and then camera isn't able to control the shutter - control the amount of light taken. If you look closely at the over exposed pictures, you will notice horizontal lines accross them.
The shutter or whole lens unit has to be changed. It is quite expensive, I believe it's not worth it. You can contact Sony / Konica - Minolta service center.
I work in a Sony / Konica - Minolta service center and have repaired a lot of these.

Hope this helps!

Konica Minolta Zoom 160c won't turn on--lens stuck out and open

There is some kind of grit or something in the lens gearing mechanism, preventing its movement. Take it to a repair facility, or replace it.

Can't start the camera

I had a similar problem.

I'd left the camera unused for over a year...then came to use it, installed new fully charged-up NiMh batteries, but no response at all from the camera.

I found a small black plastic clip inside the battery compartment, close to the opening. It ended up being some kind of reset switch. I depressed this for about five seconds, then installed the batteries and the camera came back to life, as it used to.

Hope this helps.

Two possibilities : 1 ) your film was not properly loaded into the pick up spool and hence it was transported or exposed ; what you took to the lab was unexposed film. 2) the shutter is not opening and again no exposure takes place. To check this open back , set to slow speed like 8th of a second, and see if the shutter opens and closes properly. If the shutter does not open then it will have to go in, unfortunately. Cost ? If it is just an adjustment ( as I suspect is the case ) you should not pay more than $ 100.

No focus

Get Sony to repair it; they bought the division from Konica-Minolta.
