Question about Konica Minolta Zoom 160C Date 35mm Point and Shoot Camera
Even after replacing the battery several times, the camera refuses to turn on. The little screen will simply flash once and then turn off. Sometimes, if the on/off switch is held it will make a sound similar to that of rewinding film. Also, the lens is stuck in a fully extended position and there seems to be no way to retract it or close the "eyelid" at the end. I do not know what can be done, if anything.
There is some kind of grit or something in the lens gearing mechanism, preventing its movement. Take it to a repair facility, or replace it.

Well, I also bought the DiMAGE Z2, and my problem was similar: It worked for some time, but then it started freezing sometimes, not responding to any button I pressed. One time, it froze, shut off, and I wasn't able to power it up again. In short, the camera was still under its warranty, so I gave it to their lab and they fixed the problem.

your lens mechanism is stuck up! try pulling the lens with slight force, if you are lucky the culprit that is blocking the mechanism will get loose. If you are not lucky theres no way you can remove or fix the problem than sending it to the authorized service center. =-( All digital cameras has a a life expectancy of around three years, or 5000 shots. Here in the Philippines, we use conversion method, since all cameras today are made of plastics, we convert those easy to break parts with metal.

I would make sure that the manual rewind button on the back of the camera is not stuck in, or you're not accidentally hitting the manual rewind button. I hope this helps!
Go Ahead. Use Us.
