Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z6 Digital Camera
That would indicate damage to the lens motor or the extension tube. When the camera sees the motor using more power than normal it figures that the motor or the lens is sticking and shuts down to protect the battery and the rest of the power circuit.
That model should have a replaceable lens if I am thinking of the right one. If you take the lens off (twist the base ring about 45 degrees) then try starting up the camera. It should still fault but give a different error code. That would tell you if the problem is the motor or the lens tube. If its the tube just replace the lens. If its the motor then it gets tricky. The repair costs on this are a real **** shoot. On some models they will be worth doing and on others it will cost more than a new camera. So you need to check out the repair costs and get estimates and have a good idea of what a replacement camera is worth. Then you will know if its worth fixing or cheaper to replace.
This type of damage is very common on all cameras with retractable lens or hoods. They do try to build them to take a bit of abuse but sometimes that isn't enough to protect it.
