Having problems with your Konica Minolta Digital Cameras ?

Minolta Dimage Z1 dropped & now zoom does not operate properly


Answers :

What appears to have happened is that you have damaged the lens system.
This part is not easily fixed, and may cost more than the camera is worth. Unless it is a new camera, I suggest you do not fix the camera, and sell it on a site such as Ebay for parts or repair, as is.
Once an impact has damaged any digital camera, you do not have many choices. This is one of the main reasons I always recommend to use the wrist strap and use a padded case to store the camera, not in a pocket of any kind. That also should apply to purses and such, always use a padded case to help protect the camera from damage. I have done this for the few years I have been using these small point and shoot cameras of various kinds including various Nikons, Canons, and others. By taking extra precautions, I have (thankfully) not had any damage to any camera relating to impact of any kind.

Faulty zoom Hi there. My Minolta Dimage Z3 got a knock & is now on constant full Zoom. I can't get it back to normal view. Anyone know how to fix this?

Zoom Error While taking a picture of my daughter at Disneyland, I accidently dropped my camera, while in picture mode. It must have been about a 3 foot fall. It landed on the extended lense causing it to disalign itself. I attempted to push lens back into it's proper alignment. Now that I turn on the camera, I automatically get a "Zoom Error" fault in the LCD screen. Is it possible for me to fix it or what do you suggest? Thank you for your time and efforts..... Sincerely Alex Z.

Hi..... Years ago I purchased a Vivitar Series 1 70-210 zoom lens with macro to fit my Konica SLRs. I also aquired a similar lense to fit my Minolta 101b. I have recently bought a Sony A100 digital SLR and would like to know if there are any converter rings available to use my old lenses on the new camera. I just love the one-stop zoom and focus operation. Any help appreciated Grayham

Focus camera will not focus, even sight screen is out of focus The camera will not focus. When switched on it beeps with a flashing green light near rthe view-finder and the lens housing extends.

I have what seems like a very easy thing to fix, but the estimate I got for fixing it seems much too high ($175). I dropped my Konica Minolta Dimage Z3 camera a while ago and now the battery lid won't stay closed. I need a replacement for that and the camera will be as good as new. Any suggestions?
