Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE A2 Digital Camera
Sorry, the lens is fixed onto this camera. It's not possible to change it.
BUT there is a solution; you can but a small lens to screw into the front of the existing lens like a filter.
There is one to get better close ups (super macro I s'pose) and another to get better telephoto.
There's a page about them in the hand book somewhere near the back. Gives the Konika part numbres and so on.

SOURCE: Looking for camera parts.
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.

Your problem is likely due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may require professional repair.

I have already answer to this problem. To try on solve it you need to remove the metal front cover and check if the socket of the large flat coming fron the back of camera is complete inserted on his shell, or if you damage the cable because the camera drop down

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.
