Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE A1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Unable to see anything through the eye piece or on the lcd. I can point to something and flash will go and it will sound like it took a picture but unable to see anything. Lens don't turn either for focusing. Just bought a new battery and charged fully but to no avail. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Hi!
If it shows the menu, it could be CCD problem. This is a well known problem with the A1. You should contact your local Konica-Minolta (Sony) service center and see if they can change the CCD for free as they were factory fault, if I remember it right.

You may have turned your screen off without knowing it. Does it have a eye piece viewfinder (part where you look through it)? If it does, can you look through it? If you can, that means your camera is still working. There should be a button on the camera to switch from eye-viewer mode to screen mode.

That's the best I got, maybe try to find something about that in the manual...

Veiw finder(eye piece ) out of focus pictures are fine


Use the diopter adjustment to refocus the viewfinder to your eye.

Point the camera at a sign or something with writing on and half press the shutter button to focus then move the little adjuster at the top right of the viewfinder until the image in the veiwfinder is in focus

Black screen


Assumed that LCD screen is black and what about Eye piece viewfinder? Does it show picture to you?
If LCD Screen is black, it means it has no back-light. check any button to turn back light on & off at LCD portion.
There can be an other reason of black LCD. a flexible cable which connects LCD and Camera circuits and it can be broken/ cracked/ out of order.

I have lines on the image when I look thru the eye piece


which camera is it, is the eye piece a lcd screen or optical?

if the pictures come out ok on the PC it sounds like a faulty screen, If the camera is still under warranty it should be covered if not unless its an expensive camera its probably best to live with it as a repair would be quite pricey

if the pictures have lines on when displayed on the PC its a main board or CCD fault, both expensive.

Slow taking pic, flash flashes multiple times while lenses acts like it is trying to focus


The evolt cameras use the flash bursts as a "autofocus help". Try to find points with high contrast or edges to point one of the three autofocus points at (you see these points while looking through the viewfinder and they flash red as soon as the camera is focused).

So, flash bursts basically mean "too low light" some other situation which is hard for the camera to focus. In such situations, try to switch to MF mode (manual focus). Or you could buy an external flash (e.g. Olympus FL-36) which has a red light for autofocus assistance instead of flash bursts.

LCD Monitor


no

 

when looking through the eye piece, press the shutter button half way down, you will see red focus points. Use those to align the image.
