I don't know if it was the battery or the camera I have never had trouble with this camera which I bought from ritz Camera store aand which is now defunct. it is a dynax 500si maxxum 400si Thank you!


Answers :

A couple of things to make sure:
\015\012
\015\012-the battery is in the right position
\015\012-is the battery showing a full charge in the data panel
\015\012-after turning it on, press the P (program auto) button
\015\012-is there film in the camera-if so does it show as properly loaded
\015\012-it could be the smaller watch quartz battery that needs replacing, it's found in the back of the camera
\015\012
\015\012If you need a manual, here's a link. It tells you the exact battery types you need to use.
\015\012
\015\012http://www.vikenk.com/minolta_manual.htm
\015\012
\015\012If that doesn't help, I would take it for a service to a camera shop as this seems to be a common problem with that model of camera.
\015\012
\015\012I hope that info helped.
At the bottomside of the camera you should see a tiny hole, inset a straightened paperclip into it, this will manually release the film.. if its a button type just pressing it wud do... try this if u havent yet...\015\012
\015\012the roll wud get stuck for two reasons... if u ve wound the film in the opposite direction or\015\012
\015\012It is possible that the film has broken free from the canister. You may have to try and push it back in the canister by hand
\015\012

\015\012
\015\012if that doesnt help.....you have to slowly pull the film out by hand.\015\012Sounds like there is just a minor jam and thats why the batteries are\015\012messing up. Just try to pull everything out because that will be the\015\012only way to free it. I see this problem all to often I work with Kodak.\015\012Im sure if you take your time and gently pull the film out turn the\015\012camera off and back on the cmaera will reset itself and should work\015\012just fine.
\015\012

\015\012hope this was helpful\015\012thank you\015\012good luck with ur camera\015\012have a nice day

I bought a digital camera from Ebay. I have NEVER done this before and have no idea how to send my pictures to the computer. I used the camera but want to copy them to computer so I can send to friends via email. I have a HP photosmart E 317 and a card in the camera, I bought a cord connecting to computer. When plugged in to computer nothing happens. I know I am dumb but I am 53 yrs age and learning a new skill. Thank you for any assistance you can give. Oh I also do not have a manual.

I just bought this camera at a yard sale. It did not come with a disk. The model number is ST15R-VP. Serial number is 000-008-1141. I would like to know what type of camera it is and how I can get a disk to download pics to my computer from camera. Can I use this camera at another store like wal-mart photo center to make copies?


If it has a "Super Disc" drive, it will use regular 3 1/4" dicks or Super disks. The regular will hold about 15 pics and the superdisks will hold up to 75. The superdisks will need a special drive unit installed into the PC. ... VuPoint Digital Cameras

My camera won't stay on. It turns on and lens goes out and adjusts and then retracts in and camera turns off. I am in the process of taking it apart to figure it out but unless it is a problem of the screws needing to be tightened I don't know what to do next. Can you help me or refer me. I bought this camera used and really like it and want to keep it if I can. I have had so much trouble keeping digital cameras working. Thanks


The problem you are facing is most likely to be lens related. Perhaps it is not able to extend fully and hence retracing and turning off. The cause may be a mechanical obstruction. However before we try anything else, remove the battery hold for 1 mi ... Pentax Optio E30 Digital Camera

I bought a new canon 50d in july and used it through the summer sporadically in preparation for an overseas trip. Periodically got an error 30 message on the LCD but always ok after turning camera on/off. In India for 3 weeks in Oct. Got the error 30 screen 4-5 days a day during heavy shooting. Internet says error 30 is shutter problem. Does camera store (Ritz Camera in DC) fix this? Camera is barely 4 months old. What should I do? Please keep explanations simple since I am technology challenged


Sorry about the trouble you're having with the camera. I searched the manual for error code 30, but I found nothing.You could try Ritz, but I think you'll find they're probably not set up for repairs. Since the camera is less than a yea ... Canon EOS 50D Digital Camera with 28-135mm lens

Blank Screen I have just bought one of these cameras and when you open the shutter to take a photo there is only a blanks screen. I have a second of these cameras so know this is when the camera should 'roam' ready to take a snapshot. If I click the button to capture an image, it is stored and I can see it, but then it goes back to a blank screen. Any ideas :)

Last year, my friend & I both bought factory-reconditioned Polaroid 7.0MP digital cameras i737, supplied in original boxes, with all necessary bits. Both of us got 'Replace battery' messages, and cameras stopped working; we both gave up. A while ago, my grandson "poked around", had no trouble taking pictures, but got The Message. I've been trying again. Using Uniross NiMH batteries, 2700mAh, previously used only a little, newly recharged. Menu indicates that the camera knows that's what it's

Canon Squeal I recently bought a Canon A1 35mm film camera off eBay. The outside is in amazing condition but the seller did not use the camera for a very long time so it had not been lubricated. I put a new battery in it and pressed the shutter release button and heard a squeal and the shutter was staying open way too long. I'm not experienced enough to trust lubricating it myself and wanted to know if you did this in your store and if you could give me an estimate on how much it would cost. I'm


This is common on the A series Canon cameras. It's a flywheel governor on the side of the mirror box that needs to be lubricated. We do that for $48. Let us know if we can help.\015\012\015\012Crystal Camera Repair\015\012Ashevil ... Digital Cameras

Hi i just bought a canon eos rebel from someone online and it has a 28-80 lens. I try to use it and i noticed the focus is very loose, is that normal? I dont know alot about cameras but i have used manual cameras before and i have never used one with such a loose focus. And also would i lose slight focus if its like that when i go and take a picture?


Your camera is primarily an autofocus model: manual focussing is very much a secondary feature and is always very free moving. If it were any other way then it would cause the AF motor to work much harder and dramatically shorten the battery life. ... Canon EOS Rebel 2000 with 28-80 lens 35mm Film Camera

I need to know what size memory disc is for a Kodak Easy Share C180 digital camera. I bought a 4 GB and was told by the place I bought it that it would fit.

Just bought my used camera from Salvation Army. I know I shouldn't expect it to work, but it does in a way. I'd like to know why when I turn the camera on, the ready light flashes a few times (7, maybe), but does nothing else. I can't hear inside the camera to see if anything else is trying to function. I hooked the camera up to the computer, and nothing happened. Not sure if this is because I didn't install the CD needed.

I bought this camera on ebay for my daughter- it seemed like a good idea at the time. I have the same model (bought new) & have no problems. The ebay camera went through batteries alarmingly fast and when I changed them they were hot. On our 6th day of ownership a message appeared on the screen that said "Lens error, restart camera" We could not restart the camera b/c it wouldn't do anything - it was dead and the lens won't retract. Does this sound fixable? Does anybody know what would cause t
