Konika minolta dimade z6

I get no view. The screen is either black or white. sometimes after fiddling the picture comes back and I can take it. But the next time it will be white or black again.
There was no shock, no fall, this happened when using the menu.
Can this be solved by down loading a firmware?

    I don't think there is any firmware available, I don't feel I can open the camera to check a cable

Well you first try removing batteries from camera and putting them back in place, then you try updating firmware, as this are few operations user can do.
Most likely it looks like a faulty LCD or LCD ribbon out of place, this can happen even when there is no evident shock, both problems can be fixed by a technician at a repair shop.

    I do not think it is a firmware problem by the way, try removing batteries, to see if hard reset helps. Probably it is faulty LCD or ribbon cable out of connector. Ask a quote to a local camera repair shop or call the number printed on last pages of your manual and send camera in for repair.
    If camera is under guaranty, definitively call customer service number.

Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

This seems to be a loose connection if the screen ribbon cable.
Gentle squeezing of the lower part of the case may get it to sit aright

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.

Ejoy.....
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

Screen white


if you are changing the lever to different positions...the green/edit, red viewfinder, or the red lcd view and get nothing...chances are your camera has the same problem mine does. The lever is broken and is not engaging the mechanism internally to change the views or power the lens to fully extend.

you won't be able to take pictures like me. I don't know if there is a fix or not. I guess the camera is prone to these problems as there are a few similar to what u describe with yours.
