Having problems with your Konica Minolta DiMAGE G400 Digital Camera ?
The slide doesnt open
\015 Hello, I cant manage to slide the camera open it's stuck it only moves a little bit. I've tried new batteries, blowing out dust,forcing it open.\015\012\015\012If it does need repair can you recommend somewhere close to Marrickville, sydney. Thanks\015
It sounds like the lens hasn't retracted sufficiently and it's catching on the sliding door.\015\012\015\012Make sure you remove the batteries before trying this and don't go poking your fingers near any circuitry. The flash, if charged can give you one hell of a zapp\015\012\015\012It's a very simple matter to remove the front of the camera and slide the door open and replace in that position. Just be careful of the two fine wires running from the door to the camera. These are connected to the microswitch which turns the camera on when the door is opened.\015\012\015\012The whole procedure should take no more than 30 minutes just don't lose the screws.\015\012\015\012When you have everything back together reinsert the batterias and the lens should extend. Then try closing the door and then opening it again giving the lens time to retract and the camera to shut down. If the lens doesn't move you've got bigger problems.

Slider Prob I've had my S30 for quite a while and lately i've had some problem with the slider opening up. Dont know if something got in between the slider and the cam or something. Anyway with some trouble i could still open up the slider and thus start up my cam but then one day when i was trying to close my cam i started to slide it to close. Finally it closed and i slided the slider onto the lens but then the lens started to open up again. But the slider was in the way so the lens opened up
Dang, what a weird design. The lens needs to go threw a cycle before it can reach the idle position where it waits for a comand from the user. If its in the closed position and you turn it on it extends to its full range then stops at the idle positi ... Canon PowerShot S30 Digital Camera

On my PENTAX Optio Z10, the slide shutter cover came loose, it slides left and right to open and close. I didn't lose any parts but I can't slide it back on. I currently have a rubber band holding it together. How can I get it fixed, I like the camera, it takes wonderful pictures. Unfortunately I have had it for more than a year. There aren't any camera repair stores in our area any longer. Don Wicks
