Having problems with your Konica Minolta DiMAGE 7 Digital Camera ?

DiMAGE 7, batteries have charge(work torch), microdrive works (can access from PC), no life on displays when switched camera on. Is camera dead?


Answers :

Yes that is possible but before you give up. Remove the existing batteries fromthe camera and take out any additional memory. Then insert a set of new lithium or alkaline batteries and hold down the shutter release when you turn on the camear. If things are OK then the camera should operate if not then you could be looking at a repair or a new camera.
Hi Dick_barnett,

Thank you for using Fixya's Premium services.

Can you check which Display mode is it currently set to?

"Located on the back of the camera, the display-mode switch and the display information button controls on which monitor the image is displayed and what information is included in the display. The three position switch allows the choice between automatic display and setting the display to the EVF or LCD monitor."

You need to put it into the LCD Monitor Display mode so that the live image will show.

Please do not hesitate to reply so that we can resolve this issue as soon as possible.

Thank you,

A85 Dead During a normal session, switching from picture-taking mode to view mode, the lens would not retract and the picture in the view froze with the current image. I could not turn off the camera. After a while, the batteries got very hot, so I removed them. I took out the CF card. Later, I replaced the batteries and the put the card back in. The camera worked very briefly, but the LCD view would not work, displaying flashing lines on a black background. New batteries didn't help. The camera

My eos350d camera has stopped working. There is no sign of life at all. I have tried to change the battery and even the small disk battery, but there is still no sign of life. Is there any chance of the camera working again, or is it completely dead? If there is a chance of the camera working, what can be done?


Annmelba, I think you'll find the EOS to be a fairly durable series. Just to cover your bases, I would clean the inside battery contacts with a Q-tip and some alcohol. That said, I suspect you may have to take your camera to an authorized ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Hi.Err means that the camera is in fault mode. There is no code, so that the fault is generic. This kind of error is often associated with shutter problems or other loens error. If you have a spare lens, remove battery and test the spare ... Fuji FinePix S1 Pro Digital Camera

My Dynax 5D will not release the shutter nor will it turn off unless the battery is removed. The access light and the display remain on when the camera is turned off at the switch. All menus and autofocus work as normal, it will simply not release the shutter in any mode or with any of my Konica Minolta brand lenses.

Your battery will no longer take a charge. Replace the battery with a new one. Your computer probably does not supply the power to the camera. You need a fully charged battery in the camera to view or transfer photos onto your computer. ... Casio Digital Cameras

I did not use my Nikon Coolpix S3 for quite some time. I had left the battery inside the camera. And did not charge the camera for while. Recently I tried switching it on and I found (i) the camera comes to life but the lens cover does not slide in (ii) many of the buttons are not working.(iii) the charging LED does not glow when I put the camera to charge. I checked the battery and it appeared alright to the naked eyes. Please help. Bidyut Roy

Battery life My fuji Finepix s3000 does not work for more than a few minutes running time on fresh batteries. I just bought new batteries/charger to confirm this. Is there some kind of short circuit within the camera? Is this a known problem? I've hardly used the camera (partly due to the fact that it always has dead batteries in it).


Try buying very high quality recharable batteries. You might have low quality batteries and the camera eats the battery up quickly. ... Fuji FinePix S3000 Digital Camera

Canon eos 450d. When switched on, the display does not show ie shutter speed, battery level, iso etc etc. It works fine when the auto display is disabled and can be switched on and off using the disp button on the camera body but will not come on when it is enabled.


Check whether there is anything obstructing the range sensor just above the rear LCD. The sensor could be thinking that your face is near, thus turning off the display. Also, you should be able to use the Disp button even in auto display mode, which ... Canon EOS 450D + EF 75-300mm lens Digital Camera

Camera was on, working fine. When powering off, telescoping lens did not retract so lens remained extended just a bit with lens cover open.
