Having problems with your Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z1 Digital Camera ?
LCD not working
\015 Hi\015\012 I have a Konica Minolta Dimage Z1. The problem is that the LCD display is broken. I have not dropped the camera or anything like that. It just stopped working whilst I was taking pics. Pics are taken via the view finder only and all operations on the camera will only work through the viewfinder. \015\012This is the 2nd time I am having this problem. The first time it got fixed, the camera was under guarantee and it had to be replaced. The gaurantee is now expired and I'm not sure what to do. Any help would be much appreciated.\015
Konica Minolta no longer exist as such. Sony have taken them over and any repair, service work now goes through them. They agreed to take on warranty work as well.\015\012\015\012On the rear of the camera is a small push switch which will disable the LCD to conserve power. Are you sure you haven't switched the LCD off and forgotten about it? I think it can also be disabled in the setup too so check that.\015\012\015\012If you can find someone to open the rear of the camera up get them to check the flat ribbon cable (sometimes two) running to the LCD assembly. Sometimes they come lose from their sockets. You will also find two ordinary wires running to the LCD, these are the power lines for the tube which lights up the LCD. They both run to a common plug so check it's not fallen out of the socket.\015\012\015\012BMW\015\012\015\012At worst it could be a bad LCD and the best thing for that would be to keep an eye on Ebay for a damaged Z1 which has a good LCD and do a transplant.
I'm not sure what the Konica minolta policy is on this, but the right thing to do is to take responsibility when you get the same problem as one that had you replace or fix the product while under warranty.\015\012\015\012Offcourse it won't help you if that was already more than a year ago.\015\012\015\012I wish you luck, and next time don't buy konica minolta if you think they put out poor quality. besides, I heard they're coming out of the digicam business(which might not help you get service), but maybe I'm confusing with another brand.

Sd110 lcd My LCD did not work, canon repaired it....GREAT! but 2 weeks later it died. It was blank so I send it back and canon says they want money to fix. Damn.. It still takes photos with no problem. I cannot access any functions because the LCD won't work. I've tried the Display button and got the black and white screen of death. I have to take the card out to transfer photos. Canon says"UNIT HAS IMPACT/PRESSURE TO LCD". Do I need a new LCD or what. thanks, steve stokes

My Panasonic digital camera model DMC-LZ4 appears to have a stuck shutter. The LCD is black except for the informational icons. Picture review works so the LCD is fine. The flash works, just no real pictures; each new picture is a blank. The lens drive works. All the electronics work, appears mechanical and related to the shutter.

I can turn my sd1000 on, the flash works, everything works. The only thing is that I can't see what's going on through the lcd, but when I take a picture the picture does come up. The funny thing is that if I'm recording a video, I can see what's going on in the lcd. It's only not working during picture taking. Everything else works, it plays back and everything.

It seems to me that Nikon Point & Shoot cameras, or at least the last 2 that I have bought, have a usable life span of approx 4 or so years before the LCD's decide not to work in turn, makes the camera non usable. I have a 5700, 3.5 years old before it stopped working & a S4, which the LCD also quit working and it is 4 years old, I think my next point & shoot will be a Canon to go along with it's big brother that I bought this year, 50D Does anyone have a solution to this Nikon problem? Stan Wil
No solution here. If you want a quality Nikon, you need to spend thousands for their professional DSLRs. Take care of your Canon and you should be very happy with it. ... Nikon Coolpix S4 Digital Camera
Blank lcd I just got a new canon 600D. After playing with it for a while, i turned it off. Then after 5-10 mins i turned it on once again, and opened the lcd screen, but it shows blank(or say black). I can see that the lcd backlit is workeing, but nothing (no content) is displayed. Can this be an issue of low battery ? pressing the shutter button full also not capturing the picture. Flash works though, and optical view finder too, but it does not capture the photo.

I have a Canon Powershot S30 with a bad LCD. Otherwise working. I also have one with a working LCD, but the lens will not extend. I'd like to make one out of two. Is there a manual with exploded views available so I can do it myself or is that unrealistic. I have several cameras, so I suspect that a professional repair would cost more than the camera is worth. Like most electronic relics, it seems to be cheaper to replace than repair.

The top (monochrome) LCD on our Nikon D80 recently broke. I think that it is actually called the "Control Panel," and displays settings, battery life, number of pictures remaining, etc. Please note that this is not the 2.5" color LCD on the rear of the camera. I know that it is merely the LCD because the backlight works, as does portions of the LCD display itself. Does anyone know of a guide or video to perform this repair? Also, does anyone know the part number? I plan to call Nikon tomor
