Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE X50 Digital Camera
my camera was in its soft case and was dropped on the ground not but maybe 12 inches. I turned it on and noticed that it takes about 10 seconds for the screen prompts to come on and now it doesn't take any pictures with any of the flash options. It records, takes non flash pics, downloads, everything else but startup is slow, no flash pics and the light keeps a steady orange blink on any setting that has the flash. Any recommendations please feel free to email or call. Rick 661-312-5313 or Rick@EverybodyTravels.com Thank you for your support
The Manual for this camera is HERE
The orange flasing light at the back is a power indicator. It shows that there is not enough power to recharge the flash unit.
The first course of action is to replace the lithium Ion battery with a fresh one.
This is because they do "wear out" in as much as they cannot store maximum charge.
Check battery contacts are clean, and remove the camera from the dock when not charging.
If lights still blink, the last thing I can suggest is to reload the driver software for the camera.
If even this fails, it may be a broken connection within the camera, and this is usually uneconomic to repair.
