Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200 Digital Camera
I just received this camera from my mother, after my father passed away. He used the camera once and it's been in a box since. I just recently took it out and started using it. Everything was fine, took over 100 pictures, turned if off the other night. As soon as I turned it on today, the screen/lens shakes and sounds like it's trying to adjust, stops and functions fine.... except the anti-shake icon is always red in EVERY mode. I press the anti-shake button to engage, and nothing happens.
SOURCE: I dropped my konica minolta
The tracking servo motors and associated gears are damaged or misaligned. The purpose of these servos are to automatically adjust the lens positioning so that it seems the camera is almost stationary. When the anti shake is enabled, the lens locks onto a target and if the target moves, the servos move the lens to compensate for the offset. If you are experiencing screen shaking it means that the lens is trying to adjust but cannot because the servo system is damaged. It's quite possible that only one servo motor is functioning and the other is loose. It will require in shop repair.
