Having problems with your Konica Minolta Dynax 5D / Maxxum 5D Digital Camera ?

Often, after exchanging lenses, the camera simply refuses to take a shot; the shutter will not function, there is a small bleep and the viewfinder display flashes. Sometimes the fault persists, and on other occasions it seems to spontaneously resolve itself. Any ideas?

Answers :

The camera hasn't achieved focus and is set so it won't release the shutter in that condition.
I would still try to use the lens in manual mode to see if you can \015\012operate the shutter consistently. Then you know you've narrowed it down\015\012 to the focusing operation of the camera/lens.
Check the ring, that can cause problems

Maybe the shutter got wet and sticky. You can try look into the lens then press shutter button to take picture. If you don’t see the movement inside the hole, the shutter doesn’t open, it will take black picture. ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W1 Digital Camera

My EOS 400D flash sometimes pops up in bright daylight in full auto mode. I sent it back to Cannon who returned it saying no fault found. I then began to think that the problem was the way I held the camera and that I may be obscuring the (light?) sensor near the grip with my hand. After not using the camera for a while I am now taking shots again and the flash pop up problem has re-appeared. I am now sure I am not blocking the sensor. Any ideas?

In full auto mode, the camera tries to use fill flash, when it detects a backlit scene (e.g. a person in front of a window). So this is not a bug, it's a feature!If you don't want the flash to fire, you can push it down and still take the shot. ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

Flash Error Hi there, bought this camera about 6 months ago. I'm intermittently getting a problem with the pop-up flash. It pops up fine, but the screen gives me an error telling me it hasn't and won't take any shots. Have to keep switching it off and on and hoping it will work again. Sometimes it's a couple of days before it works again. It will take shots when I switch the camera to the 'no flash' setting, so it does seem to be just the flash. The error says that the flash release is jamming,

The error 5 can mean that there is something blocking the flash from popping up. If it is up but still get the message then you need to check to see if the little black pin/stick that lets the camera know that the flash is up, is not stuck. With the ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

My flash seems to be stuck in the "suppressed" mode. Also the Manual on page 64 refers to a "turn" of the "command dial" to the "flash mode setting". Since that item is not described anywhere else and the only turnable dial is the "mode" dial, I assume that it means to press the flash mode arrow. When I do that nothing happens. The flash modes do not display as described in the manual. I can't figure out how to get the flash to function properly again. I have made all my attempts with fre

I have a Canon Rebel XTi which seems to "lock up" ie will not allow a second picture to be taken after the first when used in "portrait" mode. I was shooting a wedding with it last week and sometimes it would do this and sometimes it was OK. Sometimes it would shoot three or four consequetive pictures. Only turning it off and then back on would start it again. Sometimes even this did not work for more than ten seconds Is this a fault? Why does it only happen sometimes? I'm not sure if it do

Camera repair The LCD display is white with red lines going through it. Even the viewfinder does the same thing -- white. When I hit the view button, the same thing sometimes. It seems to do worse outside. You can faintly see the pictures I took in the LCD display. Now the LCD display is totally black. What's wrong. The menu display still works. What can I do?

I am having problems with the flash working on my camera. It does not seem to matter if it is in automatic or manual modes. When I take a picture in either mode, when a flash is needed, the flash icon just blinks on the display. The camera will not take any photo when this is happening. The only way I can get my camera to take a photo is manually set the flash to off. Why is this happening?

Please reset camera through Reset option in Menu. This will set camera on default settings and any glitch in settings will be removed.Thanks. ... Canon PowerShot SD870 IS Digital Camera

My Canon SD950 IS camera will take about 30 seconds to take a flash picture. You have to hold down the shutter button for a long time. The flash indicator flashes on the display for quite a while and then the picture is finally taken. This seems to have happened after the battery was run down to nothing. After that, this flash problem appeared. I have got another battery but this still happens. I have reset to default settings as well . Still has problem. What is wrong?

I have a four year old Canon S1-IS that worked fine as recently as two weeks ago. I tried to take a photo with it last Friday and all I can see in wither the viewfinder or the display is a very garbled screen with horizontal stripes, that seem to change colors. The display mode DOES display images from the Compact Flash card in good shape. Any suggestions? Bruce Vincent [email protected] 281-379-4596

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:\015\ ... Canon Digital Cameras

Nikon D60. When viewing pics I get a section of the display that flashes on and off. I have no idea what's happened and I can't get back to viewing pics without the annoying flashing, it flashes black and white.

You're seeing blown-out highlights. These are the portions of your picture that have been overexposed so much that they've gone pure white and lost all detail. This is generally considered a bad thing, and the camera is warning you so. Of course, the ... Nikon D60 Digital Camera

Hi, I have just bought the Panasonic FZ45 and seem to have a problem with the flash. It will not pop up automatically when in "IA" mode. The display actually shows the symbol indicating that the flash is forced off. Have tried to change this using the REC set up menu but to no avail (incidentally the option to force the flash off appears in the user manual, but not on the REC menu). I have searched some of the forums on the web and it has been suggested that the FZ45 does not have an auto fla

You've kind of answered your own questions. I would try a new cable and yes, clean the battery contacts. ... Digital Cameras

There are lots of white lines on my photos. It doesn't seem to matter what the setting is, flash or not, and I've replaced the batteries which are new. The lines go accross each picture like a venitian blind. The picture looks fine when displayed immediately after being taken, but the lines are there when I display and scroll through the pictures. I have a finepix fujifilm e900 digital camera.

Then unfortunately this is a problem with the image sensor on the camera. It would cost more to fix than to just purchase a new one. If you do go for a new one please recycle the old one at a location that takes e-waste. Sorry for the bad news. ... Digital Cameras

Error 99 is a generic error code and only Canon can diagnose it. But given that it occurs when the flash is set on, it must mean there is a fault with the flash circuit. You may need a technician to replace or repair the circuit. Alternatively, you c ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera
