Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera won't stay on, even with new batteries that I know are charged.

This is so strange. My Dimage Z5 worked great and took wonderful pictures up until about 1 year ago. Now for some reason, the camera won't stay on. Even when new batteries are installed. The camera turns on, the lens pops out and then it shuts off. When I try and turn it back on, it does the same thing; lens goes back in and then out again like it's turning on for a picture and then shuts off. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Ensure you are using alkaline batteries and that battery contacts have no oxide or liquid on top of them. If you do not use alkaline batteries this is normal.
If batteries are ok is a short circuit.

Camera does not start even with new batteries


Your camera will work with AA batteries.
Always be sure the batteries are charged.
Insert the batteries correct plus to plus and minus to minus. Only one battery the wrong way around and the camera won't work. Check contacts of the batteries and in the battery compartment of your camera. Dirty or oxidised contacts can be cleaned with a dry cloth. Never use sharp tools to clean contacts or anything in or on your camera.
Always charge the batteries before using it for the first time, or if you have not used it for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
Also check if the battery door is closed correct. Most cameras do have a switch connected to the battery door. If the switch does not work correct, it could be you can't switch on your camera.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In some cases, alkaline batteries may have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in your camera. They can't deliver enough power and can start leaking, causing damage to your camera.

Many digital cameras (eg Samsung D53, Nikon 2100) have extremely poor battery life with alkaline batteries (under 20 shots!). Sometimes they won't even take a single picture.

Try using rechargeable batteries or "oxyride" disposable batteries. They perform infinately better.

I can't get rid of Error message on my Konica Minolta Z5 : SD card seems blocked, even after reformatting, because some pix may have been rotated 90 degrees ???


The Z5 can display photos that it took. However, it cannot display edited photos. Due to the way the JPEG standard is defined, a rotation of the picture constitutes editing. If you rotate it four times, or once and then undo, it still constitutes editing. If you open a picture and then save it without doing anything else, it still counts as editing. Thus, if you want to put pictures back onto the card, you'll have to use the original pictures.
The proper workflow is to download the pictures to your computer. Then, if you're going to do any work on any of these pictures, do it on copies. This way, if you totally mess up an edit, you'll still have the original.

I require the driver for Vista O/S for the Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 Digital Camera.


You don't need a driver.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Showing battery low


hi anjali,
i think the problem must be with the replacement of the CCD chip. they must have must some damage to the cam with out their knowledge. but the thing is you cant even claim that with Sony. you must have took it right next day.
that too if you are in india you cant expect the service people to get these things fixed so soon. you must have been attentive.

Same SD card problem with Dimage Z5


Your Card may need to be formatted. to fix this problem:
[note- before you start, make sure that your SD Card is blank, or that the information is unimportant, because formatting your card will erase all of the information.]

1) Plug the card into your computer, if you can, in the SD slot, or use a USB - SD transformer to plug your card into a USB port.

2) After its plugged in, go to 'My Computer'.

3) Right Click on the drive its plugged it into

4) press format

5) Make sure all of the correct settings are on and start the format.

now your SD card is formatted and should work in your camera and you can continue taking pictures. YEA :^)
