Question about Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D / Dynax 7D Digital Camera

2 Answers

Camera locks up

My camera freezes completely with the yellow lines on right side of viewfinder flashing.  I change settings and nothing happens.  I waited and turned it back on in a few hours and it was fine.  This has happened three times.  I can't count on it to work.  What am I doing wrong?

    I am having the same issue. This is not the same problem sony is fixing (links below), I called and they quoted me over $300 to fix it and that's just a baseline, goes up from there! I also took it to a local repair shop and they quoted me about the same. He did however, say he believes it to be an autofocusing problem. If anyone has any feedback on this that would be great!

    Exactly the same as Melissa - shutter will not release and anti-shake scale is flashing. The manual states a CCD setup error and refers to KM service facility. 3 identical problems suggests design problem?

    Same problem but only with a new Sigma Lens I have just bought, it a 10-20mm with Sony mount. I have Sony lenses that work fine

  • tassietony Sep 30, 2008

    I have now been advised by Sigma that it is to do with the misalignment of the diaphram mechanism, as the real problems sems to be that the apaerture wont change to suit the conditions after a couple of shots

The above links are not connected to the above problem(s). I contacted sony because I'm having the same issue and they said it is unrelated to the black screen locking up thing that the links take you to. I'm being told it's an auto focus problem. I'm out of warranty (of course) and sony can't/won't help without big bucks!

This is a known design defect in the cameras and Sony is repairing them, even if your warranty is expired.

My canon EOS 400 D will not take a photograph. I have selected 'full auto' and when i press the shutter button the speed and f number are displayed in the viewfinder together with the number 9 at the right...

The flashing green dot is telling you that your settings aren't right for the conditions. You have to bring in the settings within range. As long as the dot flashes, nothing is set right. Put camera on auto mode. Then take a photo. look at what the camera set the f stop, iso, etc. That will help you learn to set manual settings in the right direction. I have a 30 d and it will do same thing if setting in the manual settings are not right.

Hi I have a fuji finepix camera. On the display screen there is a yellow icon of a camera with an exclaimation mark and vibration marks. Please explain what this is and how I get rid of it. Thanks

basically it means the camera is finding it hard to focus as there is not enough light. Set the camera to automatic and turn on your flash. when you put the flash on the yellow camera icon should disappear and you will see the picture in the viewfinder is a lot sharper. I have the same camera and had the same problem. Turning on the flash solved it.

Above the screen display on the back of the camera are two small buttons. The left one is blue and the right one is marked EVF/LCD.

Push the right side button to change from the viewfinder to the screen.

Lights!Camera! No Action!

do you have a memory card installed?
is this camera new?
not seeing in the viewfinder is not a good sign.
if its a slr, the mirror is locked up, either by function or failure.
need to know if its a slr or small format point and shoot to offer further advice.

Konica Minolta Dimage S414

I have exactly the same problem, I'm guessing that the flash capacitor has died. I'm using the camera for outdoor work only at the moment, when I get desperate I might try taking the top off to see if I can find the capacitor.
