Considering the age of the camera, you probably have a broken indicator gear in the top of the camera. The chances of getting it replaced aren't good. If it still works otherwise, I wouldn't worry about it. Just use 24 exposure film.

SOURCE: FRame Counter does not move beyond the 26th Frame even in a 36 roll Film

Simple, the film counter unit has plastic gears underneath. the gear position or gear has worned out. simply replace the counter unit and adjust. This can be performed by any local repair shop for less than $100. -James. for further assistance email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com

!FRAME NO. FULL


Save all pictures to your computer.
Turn camera on, press the menu/ok button, select Setup, press ok.
select Frame No., change Frame No. to Renew, press ok.
Leave Setup.
Press the menu/ok button, select Setup, press ok again.
Select Format, press ok / ok until the card is formatted.
Now the counter should start over with 100.0001 again.
Set Frame No. back to Cont. to avoid to many images with the same filename.

My minolta maxxum 7d won't take a picture....The shutter will push down but no picture will be taken. I tried it later in the day then it worked. Now today I tried, it worked this morning and then not...


Precision Camera picked up the responsibility for fixing the 7D and 5D Konica-Minolta cameras when Sony bought out K-M. I contacted them when my 7D wasn't functioning, and sent them my camera. Fortunately, on of the problems was "First Frame Black". Precision completely refurbished my camera and returned it to me in better than new condition. Sony picked up the full cost for the total refurbishing; all I paid was the shipping cost to Precision. I might add that my 7D was not in warranty. The URL for Precision Camera is:
http://www.precision-camera.com/ . Give it a shot.

What does Frame No Full mean?


If you look at the top right of your camera screen when reviewing pictures you should see the frame count. As yours is reading "Frame number full" the count should be reading 999.9999 so you need to reset to 100.0000. How to do this is posted in my tips section of my profile under "THE ONLY WAY I KNOW HOW" I have pasted the section below.
Cheers

FRAME NUMBER FULL!!

If you get this message on screen then your counter has reached 999-9999 and the camera will not take anymore pictures until you reset the counter to 100-0001.

To do this follow the instructions in your manual or read on my friends...

Firstly, make sure you have a picture card inserted into your camera and you have saved any pictures on it to your pc because you are about to format the card inside the camera and you will lose any pictures you have stored on there.

Ok. turn your camera on and press the menu/ok button and select "SETTINGS" from the menu.
Scroll through the menus until you find FORMAT. Select this and you will be asked if you would like to continue. Select OK.
Depending on how large your card is (16mb - 1,2 gb etc) will determine how long this will take but it's not very long.
After you have done this your card is now wiped clean of memory and has been formatted to be used for your cameras software.

Next, select FRAME in the SETTINGS menu and set your camera to RENEW and press OK.
Now come out of your menus and take a picture.

Review the picture taken and check the counter reading in the top right of the screen. It should now read 100-0001. The counter has now been reset.

Now go back into your menu and select SETTINGS again and scroll down to FRAME once again. Set this back to CONT (continuous) and press ok. Your camera should be reset and you can now use it.

Note: If you have more than one card you will have to reformat each card because the camera will store and recognise the frame numbers stored on the card and continue using them rather than set them to 100-0001 or will open a new folder on your card and start using this as the new one thus taking up more space on your card reducing the number of shots you can store on it

When I press the shutter button the light flashes red and it beeps.On the screen it says Frame No. Full. What can I do to correct this problem


It should tell you in the manual(if you have 1)
If you review your current photo's it should read in the top right corner the number of frames used. If your camera says frame number full then the numbers in the top right should read 999.9999 and you need to reset the counter.
To reset press menu and scroll down to settings. select FORMAT and format the current card in your camera. This will wipe everything on your card so make sure you have saved them to your pc first!
After you have formatted your card go back to your settings menu and select FRAME and set this to RENEW. Now come out of the menus and take a picture. Review the picture and the counter in the top right corner should now read 100. 0001 your counter has now been reset. Now go back to the settings menu and select FRAME again and set it back to CONT (continuous). Note: The counter has been reset for the current picture card only. Other picture cards will display the previous counter readings saved on to that card and will need to be FORMATTED in the same way to reset to 100.0001

Sony a100 match ups


Yes, when Sony took over Konica Minolta they inherited the Maxxum lens mount (Minolta's AF lens mount system). the only Minolta lenses which don't work are the earlier manual focus type.

Sony have finally launched three new models which are the first to be clearly Sony designed, but they have still retained the Maxxum lens mounting.

Minolta Z1 Digital Camera


I followed the directions that were posted on the free suggestions on your site:
Turn the camera on in viewfinder mode. Turn it off and turn it upside down in your hand.
Smack the bottom of the camera several times with your other hand.
Turn it back over and turn it back on. It took me three tries, but voila, on the third try, it worked!
I could see through the viewfinder again.

When the camera is switched on there is a message saying "FRAME NO. FULL". The memory card is empty - what is wrong with the camera?


Hi. I hope you have solved this by now. I've just had the same problem. You need to reformat your memory card (make sure you download your photos first as it will erase everything on the card). Then go into the set-up part of the menu on the camera. In there you should find the option -FRAME NO. This will be set on continuous. Select the option that says RENEW. This will reset the frame number counter. Once you have done this go back into the FRAME NO menu and set it back to continous. You can now start taking photos again as the counter has been reset.

PC-Cam 300 no longer functions as a digital camera


Let's do a hardware reset on the player: Press Snapshot button and Operational mode button simultaneously for more than two seconds this will delete all the files from the camera. A beep sound is heard when the memory is cleared and LCD displays zero. This may get the camera working again.
