Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z6 Digital Camera
My Konica Minolta Z6 digital camera now makes a whirring noise and blurred screen when it starts up. The top right nand corner of the LCD display is blacked out. I had the black out problem with the z3 and returned it and was sent the z6 just before the Konica MInolta stopped doing business. The Camera has been sat idle for around 2 weeks and has not been dropped, soaked or abused in any way.
I had the same problem with mine, a minor fall cracked this, I disassembled the unit and one of the springs that hold the main sensor was broken, thus the sensor vibrates instead of "floating" when the camera is turned on. There are two possible solutions: The first is to get a faulty Z6 from eBay and get the parts (the main sensor assembly) and have it replaced. (If you are not comfortable working with 1mm screws, you'd better go with the parts to a camera repair shop and explain them the problem. The second solution is un-elegant but useful: If you disconnect the anti-shake circuit from the main board you won't have the annoying vibration at start, and the focus will work properly. I've done this and I am happy with the result (I rarely used the anti-shake feature, so I don't miss it). For reference, the anti-shake circuit ribbon is the one entering the mainboard just under the left side of the screen.
PS. if you have dark spots, chech that the sensor assembly is not too out of place or that a piece of the broken assembly is on the way. Realign it in place (and please don't touch it). and asseble tha camera back

I dropped my Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z6 and now when I turn it on, it will go off after about 2 seconds. It won't zoom and won't stay powered on. I can't take a picture or get the lens to zoom in or out. Can anyone help?
