You both are in luck. This sounds like a defective Sony CCD issue. Sony will fix your Minolta camera for free (with free shipping) regardless of warranty. You need to do this before March 31, 2008 so get going! See this link:

The Dimage models that Sony is accepting for the recall repair are:
Dimage 7HI, 7I, A1, Xi, F300, XT, X20, S414.

What is the Digital Effects Control (DEC)?


With this function, you can adjust exposure, contrast, and saturation through the viewfinder itself, prior to image capture. You can check how your adjustments will look using either the viewfinder or the LCD monitor. This feature makes it easy to get the unique images you want in many different shooting situations. DiMAGE 7i is capable of setting contrast, color saturation and filter in the following increments. Contrast: In seven levels from -3 to +3 Color Saturation: In seven levels from -3 to +3 Filter: In seven levels ranging from warm (reddish) to cool (bluish) colors.

What is the focusing screen display?


There are two display modes newly added for the DiMAGE 7i, grid and scale. The grid mode is to show a grid over the entire screen. This makes it easy to align the camera to objects vertically or horizontally. In the scale display mode, horizontal and vertical lines cross at the image center to divide the view to four sections, and each axis is scaled. This function is useful for close-up photography. The grid or scale on display is not recorded.

EVF & LCD Black in shoot mode


I know this is an old post, but sounds like your CCD sensor is shot. Check out this link: http://dcviews.com/press/Konica-Minolta-Oct05.htm My camera did the same thing. It was 2years out of warranty, but Sony (now owns Konica-Minolta) asked me to send it in. When they could not fix it they gave me a brand new Sony Alpha DSLR-a100K!!!! Jid

Konica Minolta Dimage 7 delay in start up and shot down procedure Hi, I have a Minolta Dimage 7 Digital Camera SN91202050. I'm very keen in electronics and I have its service manual (45 pages). Few months ago, I upgraded the firmware to ver 2.01e. (I read the full compatebility notice before installing). The camera worked so fine. I've got about 2000 jpgs And the last day I took about 200 jpgs in a very short period of time. So I was enforced to exchange the batteries during the snapshots. I'm using 2500mAh MiMH Kodak batteries. I noticed that the grey front right hand part of the camera is a little bit overheated. The next day, and after the camera returned to its normal temperature, I tried turning the Main Switch/ Mode Dial from OFF to Recording Mode, after putting a completely charged batteries. Unfortunately, I heard a small sound "Tick" then nothing happened else, the Data panel stayed dim(unlit) and with no data, and no red indicator had seen, also the monitor LCD didn't start. I didn't hear the noises which the camera should give in normal conditions. I left the switch as is, few minutes later, the camera continued the startup procedure, as I heard the noises and the Data panel lit in green and it displayed the normal status. I made several snapshots and everything were going well. I turned the **** to playback mode, I have seen the entire snapshots I did. Which mean tha the CF card is working well. Also all the other knobs were working properly. Then I decided to turn the camera OFF. Again, the LCD monitor turned OFF directly, but the upper Data Panel was left ON!!! And I heard "tick" Few minutes later, it turned OFF automatically. And I heard the same noises in the normal manner. 1-Does that mean the main board had a cold welding point? Or, the board was affected in the earlier overheating. I tried to use the transformer instead of the internal batteries, and I found this same situation. Delay in the turn on and turn off. And also the delay period is the same. 2-Does that mean that some chemical capacitors were damaged? ( wich capacitor should I replace?). 3- Does that mean there is a cold welding in some points beyond the processor in the MAIN PCB ASSY(0402) due to the frequent humidity and overheating? N.B I tested the internal backup battery, and it gave 3.24V (it's ok) Kind Regards, Soubhi Sabbagh Email: [email protected]
