Hi , just solved, I think the very same problem that you have with your Z3. I got the some of the solution on a similar web site. Here's what worked for me. I connected my Z3 to my PC in the normal way. When I turned it on it stayed on and did not immediately cut off. I was able to see all the photo's on the 1gig card. Some were corrupted and there was a lot of duplication. I was able to download all the photo's onto the PC. Once I was sure they were there I was now able to format the card by using the PC. This seems to have solved the problem for me.
I think that I may have caused the problem by trying to download photos when I may have had to much vino to drink!!!!!!! I ended up duplicating photo's instead of downloading them and trying to stop this in mid-stream may have caused the camera to ingest a gremlin. Also the battery ran low when trying to download and cut the camera off. Hope that this works for you.

Turn on camera and system error screen comes up and you cannot do anything to camera.


1st you need to update the firmware to 1.3u
download firmware here
http://ca.konicaminolta.com/support/americas/digital_cameras/dimage-z/dimage-z3/software_drivers/index.html (this allows 2GB cards)
instructions are here
http://ca.konicaminolta.com/support/americas/digital_cameras/dimage-z/dimage-z3/software_drivers/firmware/installation_guide.html
(instructions are a little vague on where macro mode button *flower button* is)
Also, you might have a bad SD memory card. format the card (erasing all data/pics on card)
and take some picks and try again.. if you can
If still a system error try a different SD card to get past error then update firmware with THAT SD card.
IF that don't work.... your hosed... ;(

Awesome. I was about to go buy a new Dimage z3 because it was zoomed all the way...


Surprisingly enough, most freezing problems (and other problems, too) can be solved by gently hitting your camera. It works! Just remember to be gentle.

Dimage Z3 lens does not retract


Check your batteries. Are they working? Try taking them out and replacing them. If you left the camera on when you put it away and the batteries drained, you won't be able to retract the lense until fresh batteries are inserted and the camera is powered up again.

Dimage Z3 System error


plug it in, right click on it in my computer and select format, tick the quick format box and start it up! this will sort it out, i believe the problem is caused by incorrectly disconnecting the camera from a pc/laptop, so when you next disconnect make sure you safely remove it (right click in my computer,select safely remove)

DiMage Z6 turns off when trying to view pictures


I posted this on another section:

My Z6 worked flawlessly for over a year, then suddenly started shutting off for no reason. Tried new batteries, etc. The problem turned out to be the memory card. My advice, buy a GOOD card instead of a new camera! Keep in mind, flash cards DO have a "life" to them - meaning they can only be used / erased so many times before they will cause errors (so don't buy a used card off of ebay - no matter HOW good the deal seems). If your shutdown problem started with a "unable to read card" warning, then its the card. The camera is actually "protecting" itself by shutting down. Good luck!
