Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE X1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera shut down

I have a Konica Minolta Dimage X1. After shooting about a dozen images on a fully charged battery the camera will indicate a low battery and shut down. Using a different, freshly charged battery I have the same problem. I checked the battery charge with a meter after the camera shut down and found the charge was still strong. Putting the battery back into the camera after checking it I can shoot another dozen shots and the same thing happens. What is going on and what is the solution?

    Thanks for the information. Your analysis is what I was afraid the answer might be. It is too late to go back to the company, it is my fault I did not more aggressively go after the problem earlier.

Hi the problem your having is that a component on the board isnt letting the correct power come from the battery therefore giving false reading on the batt display the huge problem you have is that they dont repair these cameras it just isnt financially worth it so unless you know how to test all components on the board the chances of getting it reapired are slim to none their isnt anything you can do as it is a board problem.
If you tested the battery and this is fine then the problem is deffinately with the board.
How long have you had the camera if its not long then i would get a refund as repairing is something they wont do sorry i couldnt help you any more but other experts will tell you the same

I need to READ the battery charger instructions for a Minolta Dimage G500?


I suggest you charge the battery overnight and in the morning if the LED does not change color then the Red LED on the charger only indicates that there is mains power to the charge adapter.

Battery doesn't hold a charge


Hello krad,

I have seen this issue in quite a lot of cameras and the battery or charger are not the issue here. A software update will fix this issue 9 out of 10 times. Connect your camera to the PC and then run this exe file

Camera viewing screen greyed out


If this also shows up on the pictures it could be a defective Sony CCD issue. If so, Sony will fix your Minolta camera for free (with free shipping) regardless of warranty. You need to do this before March 31, 2008 so get going! See this link:

The Dimage models that Sony is accepting for the recall repair are:
Dimage 7HI, 7I, A1, Xi, F300, XT, X20, S414.

DARK PICTURES


I am afraid the shutter is faulty, which means it does not get enough light from the image, however it will still print the image but not in natural light, battery is not an issue here, you can try changing new battery but i don't think the image will change, the bottom line is the camera is faulty and tell the seller for refund if possible.

Will not turn on even with charged battery


If your friends battert worked in his camera but not in yours,That is what you said wasn't it? Then it is not a lack of power. But a camera prolem. The only likely fix is to replace it. But check the makers web site first.
