Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE X20 Digital Camera

2 Answers

My minolta dimage X20 whern turned on is all ready to take a picture but is only showin blackness, i can preview pictures etc and do every thing else My Minolta DiMAGE X20 is doing the same thing and has been for a year. I've just been too lazy to go buy a new one. When I turn it on the screen is completely black, but sometimes when you point it at the light it will get a couple white streaks across it. When you take a picture this is the only image that comes up. When in playback mode, I can still see all pictures I had taken previously, and the menu still works fine. (This had happened before, but stopped for a couple of weeks when I turned it on, but then happened again)

    Thank you very much, I actually came upon the lawsuit papers for that yesterday when researching it as well, but wasn't able to find the proper site for it due to Konica Minolta not dealing with cameras anymore. so once again, Thanks!

Good day to you Sir Toonz. I was really very happy to have read your 'best solution" posted Nov 17th however, I was also disappointed because,
sony repair services will only repair their defective cameras on certain areas such as U. S. a. and Canada. It is very unfair because I am in the Philippines, although I bought this my Konica Minolta
dimage x20 in L.A. in California. We have a Sony repair service also here in Cebu City, Philippines. why can not they also accept repair here when their product is defective, they should regardless of its warranty because said camera is simply defective.

I hope they will reconsider because, I precisely chose to buy this Minolta in spite of a lot of other brands because of its su[ppose to be durable quality. I guess I was wrong. I was really not able to use it much and the CCD just became black. It was a real disappointment and a big waste

Nevertheless, I want to thank you. Keep up the good work.

This definitely sounds like a defective Sony CCD issue. If so, 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:

Hi, I'm Jimmy go. Just would like to confirm to what extent the warranty of Dimage X20 is, because I just had my Dimge X20 repaird /replaced however, the Sony Service center in our area which is Cebu City Philippines, charged me with labor cost. Is this legal? As I understand in they had installed a defective part and that they are willing to replace it at no cost at all to the user/buyer. Is this true... please confirm

Check out the manual it needs a little setting up I guess. There should be a more comprehensive manual on the CD in PDF format.

Lcd black, but can hear the picture being taken


This is part of a known problem with the SONY image sensors that operate the lcd. There is in fact a recall that will replace the bad componets. You need to contact SONY for repairs. Check out this website to learn more about your problem. http://www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html

No picture


The camera does not require a new CCD. This problem is most likely due to a stuck or malfunctioning shutter mechanism in the lens. Normally the camera will open the shutter to allow you to see the image so you can compose, and then when you take the picture it will close the shutter momentarily and record what the CCD saw at that moment. If the shutter does not open in the first place - all you see is black. If this is in fact your issue the camera will need to be repaired. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
