Question about Konica Minolta Dynax 5D / Maxxum 5D Body only Digital Camera

2 Answers

My Dynax 5D will not release the shutter nor will it turn off unless the battery is removed. The access light and the display remain on when the camera is turned off at the switch. All menus and autofocus work as normal, it will simply not release the shutter in any mode or with any of my Konica Minolta brand lenses.

Always use the best quality batteries available, I used some cheap batteries in my compact and had problems but it came good after a while with good quality batteries. Also the automatic lens protector had some grit stuck in it from the beach stopping it from closing, I gently freed up the mechanism and haven't had a problem closing since.

Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

No images show up on screen after shutter releases


If the images are recorded on the card but not shown immediatly after the shutter release, press MENU, go with the control dial to the recording menu (the one symbolised with a camera) and press AF, the center knob.
On page 1, the third item controls the instant playback, it can be set to OFF, probably your setup, 2, 5 or 10 seconds.

My camera will turn on but will not take pics (shutter won't release)and if I leave it on without activity the red light comes on


Your problem may be due to a buildup of corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera preventing full battery power from flowing into the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during the cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and reinsert them into the camera. This cures the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

Camera turns on with a bit of a tremble but shutter locks


I have an 5D with the same problem, It looks like the Anti shake does not initialize properly, The only bypass I found that worked (except for a real repair) is to set the display light timeout for 5 seconds, The standby timout for 1 minute, Turn the camera off, and on again, Wait for 5 sec then the display goes blank, wait for 1 minute then the camera goes in standby, (light from CF card flashed red 1 time) Then touch any button to re-activate the camera and... voila... everything works, including taking normal pictures and the anti-shake !!! So it only takes a minute everytime to startup..

My Monolta Dynax 5D judders on startup, then the shake reduction display flashes then it wont take pictures or turn off. It just shows br1 in viewfinder display


It would appear from other sites and users that the anti-shake mech has failed and the cost to repair outweighs the value so I will stick with my SonyA700, sell the lenses and filters I dont need and scrap the body. Thanks for the reply.

LCD Display


I was cleaning my CCD and damaged the shutter. Same problem. Click to take a picture and the camera locks up and powers off. Turn the camera back on and the shutter releases and the camera resets and powers on. $281 service call later and Precision fixed it quickly. Replaced the shutter. They warranty their work for 6 months. Priced way too high, but nobody would touch it. As soon as I told other repair services how I messed it up, they turned me down. I had to much money invested in the camera to toss it in the closet.

Camera makes noise when switched on and shutter won't release.


This is a job for a repair shop - though be warned it can be pricey and may even have to be junked -So you are in for an expensive time.

Camera not capturing


If it works in other ways, autofocuses, seems to lock on and is ready, but the shutter won't release,  and if when you turn it on, there's a buzzing sound for a few seconds, and if you turn on the AS button and when you press the shutter release part way you see five bars blinking on the right side of the viewfinder, you've got an AS system failure, and will have to send the camera in for service.
