Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE S414 Digital Camera
Replacing the batteries with fresh one's do not solve the problem. Putting the camera on Auto has no reaction. the lense does not extend neither does the display lid up. I have tried various types of batteries including rechargeables all have the same net result. The does not switch on - no reaction what so ever.
Take batteries out . Find a pencil with an eraser on the end, and with the eraser 'polish' the contacts at the base of the compartment. Also the contact strip in the lid. If this model takes 2 AA batteries find a piece aluminium foil to 'pack' the lid out. If it takes 4 batteries make sure two pieces of foil across each contact. Replace batteries -give it a whirl If no joy press the battery compartment lid in firmly an try. Still in trouble Then this is a more serious job for a repair shop However do get on to the Technical Support at Konica[Now Sony I believe] to see if any other remedy is available.
