Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE S414 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Konica Minolta Dimage S414

My camera won't works if I turned on the flash option. The orange light keeps blinking at the viewfinder, and after a couple of seconds the camera turns itself off. I got many times the "err" sign on the data panel. I changed to a fresh set of batteries, I changed the memory card to a new empty card. It takes pictures, but the colors are sometimes all blue, or I have other colors in the pictures, but they are not clear. I tried different settings on the camera, nothing changed. I tried set the focus to spot AF, there is no change in picture quality. I also noticed a yellow line at the bottom of the right side of the LCD monitor. It is there in A mode as well, as in M mode. Any suggestion? Thanks.

I have exactly the same problem, I'm guessing that the flash capacitor has died. I'm using the camera for outdoor work only at the moment, when I get desperate I might try taking the top off to see if I can find the capacitor.

    I can't take pics outside either. It may work the first 5 frames and then it just focuses.

Any brand will do, but use only old type 2GB SD cards, no SDHC types.

Minolta dimage s414 camera, error no card try to use a 4 gb flashcard and then it read unable to use card.

The S414 was designed to work with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it will fit into the slot, it will not work. You need to stay with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Minolta Dimage S414 camera doesn't like a new 4GB CF card

Check your manual to see if your camera accepts a card that large.
