Power up failure

I plugged a 6-volt AC power supply into my Minolta DiMage 5 camera while I charged its batteries. The camera did not power on, and now will not power on with the AA batteries. I have tried different sets of batteries, without any luck.

    I plugged a 6-volt AC power supply into my Minolta DiMage 5 camera while I charged its batteries. The camera did not power on, and now will not power on with the AA batteries. I have tried different sets of batteries, without any luck. Nothing comes up on the display, and there are no sounds. It is as though there is no power to any part of the camera.

    Thank you for the idea, but how can I check to see if there is a problem with the battery connection?

You have supplied almost double voltage to camera and in my opinion, it damaged the on-board few power supply parts like regulator IC etc. You should contact to nearest Sony Service Center as they service Minolta too. Here is Minolta customer notification for details.

Hi-

Check the leds on the camera's battery compartment/slot and if you can clean it with a sandpaper( little tricky though) then try cleaning it, and if its still within warranty call manufacturer instead for a possible replacement.

Hope this helps

If the memory card is full then also this problem occurs like no power in the camera.
i will provide you with some tips to solve this problem manualy try that if it helps it your luck or take it to the repair center for proper repairs

Things You Can Fix Yourself:

The common problem that can be detected and fixed without much hassle is the digital camera lens. Most of the time it is due to careless handling or improper setting that the lens ceases to function leaving you baffled over the matter. Most of the time, it is due to the improper alignment of the lens. You will encounter system error messages on the LCD. In such circumstances the camera is not able to focus and the result is worse pictures. You can simply realign the lens or reset the zoom barrel guide pins and you will find your digital camera working as usual.

There are some other minor and common problems such as broken battery cover, broken hinges on memory card doors, cracked LCDs, etc. But if you are not sure about the problem, it is wise not to handle it. Rather you can take your digital camera to an authorized repairing center.

However, before visiting any repairing center or technician you must take check certain common things. There may be some minor problems that you can identify yourself such as:

1 - Sometimes, it is very likely that you might have hit the wrong button or have changed the menu for which the device does not work properly.

2 - If the battery of your digital camera is running out of power, it is most likely that the digital cameras will not work. Ensure if thing improves when a fully charged cell is inserted into the digital camera.

3 - Sometimes, it is necessary to reset the camera through the menu or by removing the battery for 24 hours.

4 - The camera may not turn on if the memory card is full.

These common problems can not be really considered as a serious problem for the digital camera. But a novice user of the gadget may find it difficult them troubleshoot.

Selecting Repairing Service Station:

If the small efforts are not enough to fix your camera, visit an authorized service station in stead of asking any ordinary technician. The technician in the service station should have experience of fixing several brands and models of digital camera.

Moreover, both the user and the technician should have the ability to distinguish between marginal repair and quality repair. A little bit of confusion in this regard may cause damage to your precious digital camera.

Each model of digital cameras requires special tools to fix the errors and reliable service centers have these specialized tools and skilled technicians to properly service and safeguard the digital camera. Efficient diagnosis and repairing of digital camera depends largely upon specialized tests, appropriate equipments and expert technician.

The high-end and sophisticated device like digital camera requires a lot of concern and careful handling which is of paramount importance for longevity of the digital camera. However, the repair process of digital camera also needs the same amount of care and attention. You need to have adequate knowledge of handling digital camera to avoid any kind of trouble.

The power adapter had a wrong voltage . this burned the power wirings inside the camera. This contacts also go to the batteries.
The camera must be taken apart to repair this.
You are lucky if you did not cause any further damage.
Take camera to a camera repair shop.
Also check your guaranty terms.

Can I use the battery charger BC-400 overseas?


No, you cannot. This is due, not only to the shape of the plug, but also to the fact that the AC cable for BC-400 do not comply with overseas regulations. Though the label on BC-400 indicates the voltage rating (100-240V), the durability of the power cord for each type of BC-400 differs respectively. Minolta has no responsibility for any damage or loss incurred by use of AC adapter or BC-400 not warranted in the region. The mentioned electric cords may not be inseted to the power receptacle. In this case please obtain the transform adaptor at the local dealers. (Please be noted that especially in China there are 5 or 6 types of plug .) Warning: Please be careful when pulling in/out the cord from the power receptacle for the electric shock prevention.

Power Compatibility


Look on the power supply or the back of the unit. You will most likely see something like "INPUT 100-240VAC 50-60Hz 15-20VA". If so, then all you need is a plug adapter. If not, you'll need a power converter.
