20 Most Recent Konica Minolta DiMAGE 7 Digital Camera Questions & Answers

Yipes - seems that electronics have developed a nind of their own. Check with the manufacturer, if manual has no mention, of a reset switch or hidden code that will reset unit to factory defaults. Cross your fingers.

Make sure that you have the correct type of batteries as listed in the manual and check that the battery is installed in the correct direction.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

The circuit that drives the shutter needs to be replaced for a faulty capacitor is your problem
The capacitor holds voltage to run the shutter as needed although if not working the capacitor has a hair line crack in it that will lose power which will not operate the shutter no longer

It's not a single button. Turn the function dial to "DRIVE," then while pressing down on the button in the center of the function dial turn the control dial near the shutter release button to select the self-timer (one-handed clock icon).

Having gone over a month without a response, I assume this is no longer a problem.

Your card can be formatted with either the FAT32 or FAT (FAT16) system. If you aformat the card with your computer, it is possible that you are not formatting with the proper system. It is always best to format the card in-camera, to ensure it is being properly formatted. If your camera still doesn't read the card, make sure the little switch on the edge of the card is NOT in the 'locked' position.

Hi Dick_barnett,

Thank you for using Fixya's Premium services.

Can you check which Display mode is it currently set to?

"Located on the back of the camera, the display-mode switch and the display information button controls on which monitor the image is displayed and what information is included in the display. The three position switch allows the choice between automatic display and setting the display to the EVF or LCD monitor."


You need to put it into the LCD Monitor Display mode so that the live image will show.

Please do not hesitate to reply so that we can resolve this issue as soon as possible.

Thank you,

Fixya Premium Expert

His translations from the French are, in English: Control Panel (configuration panel)>Administrative Tools (administrator utility)>Computer Management (computer utility )> Disk Management (disk utility) in Storage (stockage). I. e., Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Management>Storage>Disk Management.

Mille merci, dwafellman. Vouz m’avez sauvé un voyage á Office Depot pour retourner mon mémoire Flash.

Try too format your CF card in FAT (not fat32) in a computer.

Konica Minolta... | Answered on Jan 17, 2009

try too fine a battery container which can hold your batteries and contact it too the camera by the external power plug.
It's an solution if you don't find a battery door.
You may also use a car battery of 6 volt by this system.

Have you had your CCD replaced yet? This is the symptom that would result in that service.

DPOF stands for Digital Print Order Format. The DiMAGE 7 supports DPOF Ver. 1.1 so that you can specify the images and the number of copies to be printed and the print type. This technology enables you to take your Compact Flash Card to a Photofinishing Print Service, or personal printer, which supports DPOF, and print the selected images at the number specified automatically. DPOF also enables you to print an index print of all your images. Please see the DiMAGE 7 instruction manual for details about setting the DPOF.

Please wait for a moment until the warning message disappears and the Access lamp extinguishes. The normal operation will resume soon. The start-up time of the IBM Microdrive, until it becomes readable by DiMAGE 7, takes longer than Compact Flash. In the meantime the camera may not detect card existence.
