Re: "Milky" Viewfinder

There's an LCD/EVF brightness control on one of the menus. You must select either LCD or EVF to adjust. Have you tried this? You might also try changing the frame rate, the higher rate goes to a lower resolution, to see if this changes anything. By milky color I assume you mean bright with very little contrast?

Re: "Milky" Viewfinder

After a quick look at the manual you can find in the setup menu 3 "reset defaults" which shoud set you camera back to its first settings.

When it goes to black&white the lightconditions are probably too dark. It has a better range in black&white so it switches. (but if I remember correctly this only happens when you're in video-modus 'cause in photo-modus the flash will pop up)

I own a Dimage A2 and the viewfinder is very scratched. Can I buy one from anywhere?


In short, no. Spares are generally no longer available and expensive when they are.

But there are huge numbers of broken A1's and A2's which sell for near-nothing on auction websites which may be purchases as spares donors. The viewfinder lenses on both models are identical, although the actual electronic EVF display is different. Ask the right questions and buy wisely and you'll also end up with spare batteries and all the body covers which might have been lost from yours for no extra cost.

I have Konika Minolta Dimage A2 after swich on the view on the screen start shakeing for a few secunds ??


This indicates that the flexible circuit board (flexi pcb) to the LCD has started to crack. usually it happens to the viewfinder LCD first.

Unfortunately it happens to almost all Dimage A1's and A2's eventually and cannot be fixed unless the flexi pcb is replaced. New ones are no longer available and are very difficult to fit due to the extensive disassembly required. If you can get one, you'll find that the weaknesses were never resolved and it's just as prone to failure as the old one. A good used replacement A2 will cost less than any repairs, but is equally prone to the same fate.

All you can do to prevent it getting worse is to never flip out the LCD panel and you should also use double sided foam tape to stick the viewfinder permanently in the down position. Konica Minolta definitely knew of the weakness as they remedied it with a different design in the later A200.

Unfortunately my A2 failed just after I bought three extra batteries and a battery grip for it and the replacement A2 failed a month after purchase. It's a superb camera but seems to have been made to ensure that it doesn't last.

I hope that you've found my answer to be of use and that you can prevent your problem from getting worse. All I ask in return is that you take a moment to rate my answer.

Cannot switch from LCD to viewfinder - Minolta Dimage Z1


Nothing adjustable here, Its more than likely the switch pole which is weither broken or worn. Not a DIY but also not an expensive fix

Thanks for using FIXYA

Need rubber eye cup for Konica Minolta A2 viewfinder.


These are frequently lost and are fashioned of purest unobtanium.

When mine disappeared I bought a non-working A2 on eBay very cheaply and carefully removed the old eyecup from it and glued it onto mine, it also had the benefit of providing spare body covers, a lens hood, battery and a strap. A cheaper alternative is to buy a non-original replacement, see item number 220440673814 on eBay, or search for seller birthdayboy; the eyecups he sells are good, but it looks ugly and gets in the way as it isn't flush with the back of the camera.
Don't re-sell the donor camera if you buy one: sooner or later you'll need the flexible circuit board from inside it, as the one in your camera WILL eventually fail to power the viewfinder lcd backlight. The old camera will serve to show you how to dismantle and repair your original one. It's one of those jobs which is so fiddly and time-consuming that a professional repair is totally uneconomic.

Viewfinder


Please check the rotary switch on the camera is in the correct position. The viewfinder and monitor settings are very close together!

Optical viewfinder zoom isn't working


no ideas on how you can get it working. There is I should think a connection adrift. Try the Konica Tech Support Team But be prepared for a zilch answer- I don't think a 'repair' will come into the equation

Toggle between LCD & Viewfinder


You're not alone. It's an epidemic. With some people it lasted only about 8 flips between LCD and viewfinder. It's especialy a problem with the Z series. If you still can, send it for repair on warranty, otherwise you'll either have to live with it or find a place that can handle this repair. Good luck

What is the Digital Effects Control (DEC)?


With this function, you can adjust exposure, contrast, and saturation through the viewfinder itself, prior to image capture. You can check how your adjustments will look using either the viewfinder or the LCD monitor. This feature makes it easy to get the unique images you want in many different shooting situations. DiMAGE 7i is capable of setting contrast, color saturation and filter in the following increments. Contrast: In seven levels from -3 to +3 Color Saturation: In seven levels from -3 to +3 Filter: In seven levels ranging from warm (reddish) to cool (bluish) colors.
