Having problems with your Konica Minolta DiMAGE A2 Digital Camera ?

Konica Minolta Lithium-Ion Battery Recommendation (warning against the use of non-genuine or counterfeit batteries)



Answers :

I've used many different brands of NP-400 compatible batteries in the A2 and have found the following: genuine NP-400's have a 1500mAh capacity and generics often claim up to 1750mAh. In practice, I've found that some of the generics clearly have vastly less capacity than stated and even those which do initially last a bit longer than a genuine NP-400 fall off dramatically in their performance after a hundred or so full discharge/recharge cycles. Genuine NP-400's are quite predictable with their short battery life, but performance remains consistent over around two hundred charging cycles.

I've never had any leakage issues with any of the batteries which I've used and as the compatibles are far less than half the price of originals prefer to use them despite the shorter service life.

I've had best results using the optional BP-400 battery grip. Two NP-400's seem to last far longer than just feeding two successive single NP-400's into the camera. The ability to use six AA-size zinc alkaline batteries has also been very useful although they drain really quickly.

DARK PICTURES I just bought a Konica Minolta X1 DiMAGE digital camera. But I bought it used. It looks brand new and the seller had everything that came with it originally including the original box.So far, I have been extremely disappointed with it. ALL od the pics I have taken with it are very dark. I have tried every setting on the flash and it makes no difference. And it does it inside or outside. Could the problem be the lithium-ion battery? The battery gets weak fairly soon after powering t

I have had my camera for over a year now without a problem. It is a Sony Cybershot 7.2 Megapixels.

My battery is a Sony, G Type, Lithium Ion, NP-BG1. I have two of these batteries and I've charged them both fully and nothing seems to help. Is it the battery or the camera? Help! Thanks!

I have a Canon 40D and have never replaced the original lithium battery as someone told me that rechargeable Li - ion batteries don't have a lifespan. My picture quality isn't what it use to be and the autofocus seems slow. Is this a battery issue, lens issue or what? I keep my lenses clean but have never had it serviced. The camera is about 4 yrs old. Thanks in advance for your help! :)

I have acquired a Digilux 1 with two original batteries that apparently no longer hold a charge. However, the supplied AC adapter/charger does not power the camera.

Appreciate any suggestions.

Battery Problem I was given an SD9 last month and so far like it except for some battery issues. Using fresh AA's it will often give me the 'low battery' warning as soon as they are loaded. I bought the CRV3's thinking that would solve it, it did initially, but after about 40 shots I took them out, tried some new AA's and again the low battery warning... replaced them with the CRV3's again, low battery (surely they were not run out after 40 shots?!) Everything is fine using power cable... but

My Sony H1 can no longer work with recargeable batteries so I had to use AA alkaline last year. Now this year it will only take 4 or 5 pics with new alkaline. So am using Lithium, it takes about40 pics then shows batteries dead. What is the problem with it needing stronger batteries as it gets older? Can that be fixed so I can again use rechargeable batteries?

I have an olympus 'mju' 700 camera which uses li-ion 42b battery and a li-40c charger. Whenever i charge my batteries, the charging light would start flashing (which is not the sign of charging because the light should be still) and when this happens, the battery would not charge. The only way i could make my battery charge was to slot the battery in the charger whilst the power is on (usually, i slot the battery in then turn on the power). But i was using my batteries on a day out, 2 days aft

Battery life When I first had this camera, about 3 years ago, the rechargeable batteries I bought seemed to last for ages. But more recently the "low battery warning" has been coming on very shortly after inserting freshly charged batteries. I have tried using ordinary batteries (high powered) but even with these I can only take a few pictures before the warning light comes on. Once the light is on, the camera goes dead after a few more pictures so it's not giving me a false "low battery" warnin

I switch the power button into the off position but it generally takes a min before it actuall
