get new battery put it in camera and set settings again, but first try charging the battery, this might be all it needs, hope this helps.
Unable to Use Card
My Z6 does the same thing every now and then.
The only way I can get the message to stop (and that annoying warning chime) is to pop the card in and out real fast with the camera turned on.
It seems as though these Konicas are REALLY picky with the cards, and this is a well known issue. Also, make sure the little "lock" tab is in the "unlock" position.
You can also try taking the batteries out, and holding the on/off button for 1 minute. That resets it back to factory defaults, and clears out any "bugs". Sometimes it helps.
Sometimes using a card reader and manually formatting the card works too.
I do not know how
To the best of my knowledge, the camera does not record sound. It only records video without sound.
Mesage "unable to use card"
SD Memory Cards have a write-protect switch to prevent imagedata from being deleted. By sliding the switch to the bottom ofthe card, the data will be protected. images cannot be recordedwhen the card is protected. If an attempt is made to record ordelete an image with the camera, the card-locked message willappear on the monitor.
SD card won't stay in camera
Quick fix... Roll a little piece of paper up or fold into a small square the set it on top of the memory card and tape that down. so that it puts pressure on the card and keeps it seated in the slot. It sounds like the spring inside the camera is broken. which you will need to have sent out to be repaired unless you have a local camera repair person. And that is going to take about a month. Actually more... unless you find a local repair person. Because Sony bought out minolta a couple years ago and shut down all the minolta repair centers and got rid of almost all their parts. I once had a customer who sent in a minolta to get it fixed and it took about 8 months to get it back. Because of parts.
So You will probably want buy a new camera. but there are still a lot of those Minolta's around on clearance and you can get a great price.
Hope that helps,
We have a Minolta Dimage
Could it be the electrical contacts within the battery well ahve become tarnished. If you can scrape them with a flat screwdriver or similar tool that may solve the problem. Similarly for the battery contacts themselves. Hope this helps.

Press the MENU button, select "Drive Mode," then select the self-timer (one-handed clock). Start the self-timer by pressing the shutter release button.
Daylight photos come with BLUE filter effect
Artificial light is a different colour than daylight. Our eyes compensate, so we don't notice it much. Most digital cameras can compensate too, but whether they do or not depends on the settings. The setting you want to investigate is color balance. If this is set to daylight, it will give an orange cast to pictures taken in tungsten lighting, and a greenish cast to pictures taken in flourescent light. If it is set to artificial light, pictures taken in daylight will have a bluish cast. The best setting for most people is Auto, if your camera has it. That will let your camera decide, and usually it will get it about right.
Compatibility of sdhc card with konica milota Dimage Z10
camera will accept a maximum SD card capacity of 2GB. It simply isn't
capable of handling anything of a larger capacity and in particular is
incompatible with the more technically advanced SDHC cards.
Your fix is to either replace your camera with a later model or to stick to using SD cards with a maximum 2GB capacity.
Can the Dimage Z10 be used as a webcam
Yes it can, most definitely. BUT do you really want to waste an expensive camera on something a proper Webcam can do?
Using your camera as a webcam is like using a Rolls Royce as a Pizza Delivery van, it does the job but it's a bit expensive.
Running your camera will obviously make it generate heat and heat over prolonged periods can affect fragile circuitry. Especially the CCD. Lost pixels is one problem and complete failure is another. I have a Z10 but it's been in a box downstairs for about 3 years. As I'm an invalid I can't get to it without getting someone to go searching (for hours)
Honestly, I'd rather advise you to buy a dedicated webcam which comes with the software required and runs out about $30.00 or less. OK the picture quality won't be as good as your Z10. Another problem is, where are you going to mount it? What software will you use to operate it as a webcam? and do you really want to tie up an expensive piece of equipment taking continuous pictures of yourself.?
If you insist on using the Z10 then you will have to check whatever software you use to chat on the Net has the ability to use a webcam. I know MSN does and just for test purposes I've used a digicam on MSN. I was told the received picture was good. If you intend actually talking as well then I'm not sure but I think you'll need a seperate mic as the internal camera mic is disabled except for movies. Sorry, I'm relying on memory here. I loaded my library of manuals but didn't find any mention of webcam use.
Try a shareware site for software to use for webcam and it should be a simple matter to plug your camera into the USB port using the supplied camera cable and switch your camera to, believe it or not, camera.
Simply getting your face on the screen isn't sufficient, it has to be shown within the webcam box.
So I'll advise against using the Z10 but if you must, you must. If you have any problems setting it up I'll get mine retrieved from downstairs and work it out for you.
