As I was using my Dimage Z2, the batteries got exhausted and the camera went off. Later, when I fully recharged the batteries and put them back in the camera, it simply couldn't turn on - I've tried 3 different battery sets and the problem still remained. The camera has never been dropped. Any suggestions ? - the repair costs offered by Sony is simply too expensive for me to afford.
Well, I also bought the DiMAGE Z2, and my problem was similar: It worked for some time, but then it started freezing sometimes, not responding to any button I pressed. One time, it froze, shut off, and I wasn't able to power it up again.
In short, the camera was still under its warranty, so I gave it to their lab and they fixed the problem.

because this particular model of the Z series does not have a mic. recording. kind of a waste but if you went to another model (I.E.. Z2) it does have the mic. to record. sorry but i went through the same issue myself. good luck
Spare yourself the trouble. I had researched it (I thought) and got one, and stuck it in. The screen read: "Unable to use," It continued to read this, even after I formatted the card, so I ended up giving it to my brother, who has a Kodak camera. Sorry!
I ordered a new battery comparment door from Sony online who bought all the Minolta brand parts and technical support services. It was $35.00 plus S/H. I am trying to self-install it but failed after my first attempt. I downloaded some tips from someone else off this websit who did it so I will re-attempt again soon using their steps. Wish me luck. It's a great camera but I heard it would cost $181 to repair it so I'd rather try it myself first.
I just found a solution to my camera problem. It turned out to be the
batteries. We purchases some Rechargable Duracel with a 2650mAh rating.
After charging the batteries I put them in the camera and it started
right up and was taking photos like when we first bought it. I have not
been able to use the camera in almost 2 years and it turns out the
problem was weak batteries.
So anyone that has a Minolta Dimage
7i and cant get it to turn on make sure you have at least 2650mAh rated
rechargable batteries. The higher the mAh rating the better.
Hope this helps someone else. We are ecstatic that we can use our camera again. No more using my camera phone!!!
