Konica Minolta Dimage 7 delay in start up and shot down procedure

\015 Hi,\015\012I have a Minolta Dimage 7 Digital Camera SN91202050.\015\012\015\012I'm very keen in electronics and I have its service manual (45 pages).\015\012\015\012Few months ago, I upgraded the firmware to ver 2.01e. (I read the full compatebility notice before installing).\015\012\015\012The camera worked so fine.\015\012I've got about 2000 jpgs\015\012And 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.\015\012\015\012The 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.\015\012Unfortunately, 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.\015\012I 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.\015\012I made several snapshots and everything were going well.\015\012I turned the **** to playback mode, I have seen the entire snapshots I did.\015\012Which mean tha the CF card is working well.\015\012Also all the other knobs were working properly.\015\012Then I decided to turn the camera OFF.\015\012Again, the LCD monitor turned OFF directly, but the upper Data Panel was left ON!!! And I heard "tick"\015\012Few minutes later, it turned OFF automatically. And I heard the same noises in the normal manner.\015\012\015\0121-Does that mean the main board had a cold welding point? Or, the board was affected in the earlier overheating.\015\012\015\012I 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.\015\012\015\0122-Does that mean that some chemical capacitors were damaged? ( wich capacitor should I replace?).\015\012\015\0123- 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?\015\012\015\012N.B I tested the internal backup battery, and it gave 3.24V (it's ok)\015\012\015\012Kind Regards, \015\012\015\012Soubhi Sabbagh\015\012Email: [email protected]\015
