    this didn't solve my problem. the lens does extend.

  • Susan Winters Jun 14, 2007

    the secondry element does move.


  • Susan Winters Jun 16, 2007

    Apparently the camera still takes photos. I just can't see anything in the display or in the photo review. I tried a few photos and then took the memory card out and put it in another device and there were photos there!

    So, how do I go about fixing that?

Assuming this hasn't been fixed, as it is a bit old... You would have to open up the camera and short the connections to various buttons and switches to test them. If it is a button or switch, when you short that one it should start working again. It' sort of tricky to do, since you have to open it, but have it on so you can test it. Once you find the bad button or switch, it's just a matter of replacing that part.

If the lens does not extend then the problem is that the focus element inside the lens has gotten stuck. This is a common issue on this model of camera. If you are mechanically inclined you can remove the front lens cover and front optic giving you access to the secondary optic (this is the focus element). There is a tab of plastic which is easy to grasp with fine tipped pliers, simply grasp it and tug very gently. Turn the camera on and the element should begin moving normally again. If you are not able to do this, or do not have a fine tip screw driver and pliers you can take it to a camera repair shop and give them this information. They should be able to do the procedure for you for a small fee. If the lens does extend, then this is not the problem and I am unsure how to address your problem.

    Yes, even if this is the case the outer lens will extend. When you turn on the camera look inside the lens, does the secondary element move? If it does not - then this is your problem.

  • Anonymous Jun 16, 2007

    If both the outer lens and the inner lens move, then the problem is internal and probably involves a board or component failure. Konica-Minolta no longer exists, their assets were acquired by Sony last year. Getting any parts is hit and miss, we did just receive a replacement battery door for a Dimage Z2 - but this is the only part I have seen come from Sony for these Konica-Minolta cameras recently.

    You could send the camera to a repair facility like ours and get it looked at for $40, fixed for $60-$150 depending on the root cause of the problem. Or you could sell it "as-is" on ebay for $40-$60.

    Hope this helps!

    Congrats. You might be looking at some simple button or switch failure on the rear controls. Given that you see "accessing files" when the camera turns on, that shows that the screen is not dead.

I'm afraid you have a bad memory card. Would be better to buy a new one. see it as an extra. They are not that expensive today.
And if your camera tells you to format, first switch off the camera. Then remove the card and try to read the pictures to your computer first. There are programs can recover pictures, your camera can't show.
see these links if you don't already have recover software.
www.cardrecovery.com www.wondershare.net with free trail
www.cardrescue.com with free evaluation version
Take care you never remove the card before switching off the camera complete and wait till no light is on or blinking.
When you switch of the camera it could be it has to access the memory card, to write the last info it still had in its internal memory. they is when a light goes on or blinks. If you then remove the card or the battery, your file structure can be damaged very easy.
Most camera's show a light when the camera is accessing the memory.

Sony trinitron kv-es29m80 tv has no led light

The blinks are fault indication. If the standby light blinks 10 times and the set shuts down after that;
Check Q8014 and Q8013 for shorts, leakage, or bad solder connections on the " D" board. If the transistors are bad, check R8051 and IC8005, also on the "D" board

Pls test with an alt. batt.
If you do not have access to a dif. battery.
Pls. take the batt out of the camera. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the batt. If not you will need to order a No power repair.

After taking one photo, camera display blinks and can't turn off or take more pics

TIggertigger, allthough batteries have improved alot they still eventualy die, by the sounds of this proublem the battery has died for what ever reasen, try getting a new battery. If this does not help try a filmwere upgrade, for insturctions on how to do this please contact canon.

Blinking red indicator light

Hey pollyannac,
The red blinking light probably means either the flash is recharging, or the camera buffer is full and it is writing files to your memory card which the lcd monitor should read Busy while the camera is writing the files. If it is the flash recharging then you could try using more powerful batteries such as the Canon NiMH AA batteries. If the problem ends up being the camera is writing images to the memory card you could try getting a memory card that has a high write speed. These memory card are usually more expensive, but in my opinion well worth it. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.


Green light goes off, red light comes on and camera goes off.

I have fuji, finepix s700. DIGITAL CAMERA

What happens when the light blinks red and green repeatedly every time I want to turn the camera on? I know that this camera also uses batteries. Does this mean I should replace them?
