Having problems with your Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D / Dynax 7D Digital Camera ?

Anti-shake problem My Konica Minolta 7D stopped taking pictures. It will still auto-focus, but nothing happens when you press the shutter button all the way down. The problem I experience is: 1. Shutter does not release. 2. When camera is powered up, after the initial lens shuffle a clicking sound is heard. 3. The auto shake bars (all five of them) to the right of the view finder are blinking 4. Show 0 (zero) as the number of frames remaining in the view finder. 5. The problem is intermitte

Answers :

Symptom 1: referred to as FFB (Firts Frame Black). this is when you do not use the camera for a while and when you attempt to take the first snap shot, the Shutter is either stuck, or takes a blank/black picture (some cases the picture came out bluish). Sometimes the camera would freeze and you would need to remove the battery and re-insert it in order to reset the camera. Usually the camera comes back to life and and is usuable for a while until you store it. Sony will fix this free as they identified it as a design flaw in which the remedied (incorrect gear size for the Shutter charge assembly). Contact Sony support as they own all Minolta camera assets and tell them you have the FFB or First Frame Black problem and they will set up a ticket and instructions on where and how to send it.
\015\012symptom 2: Camera does not respond at all to the shutter release. Focus is fine, menu works, every function works no problem except for the most important - taking a picture (releasing the shutter). When you first turn on the camera, you hear the Antishift module attempt to center the CCD with a series of clicking noise for 5 or so seconds (not a good sign, also called the death rattle). All 5 AS bars in the view finder are blinking. In this case, the Tebure Assembly (AS Module) has failed and will need replacing. This is not cheap - sending it in to Precision Camera will run you around $250-$280. You can do it yourself if you order the assembly from Sony: Item - ( TEBURE ASSY ), U3008233U, $118.22 ea. via 1-800-488-7669 (will take 3-4 weeks). And follow the service manual to install and calibrate it (via the service manual download at http://www.dyxum.com/dforum/topic36109_post396839.html#396839).
\015\012However, if your camera experienced the FFB and then siezed (symptom 2) you can probably still get Sony to repair it free as its one charge for a complete camera repair. Call them up and tell them your situation.

When I try to view or delete photos, the camera keeps defaulting to the photo taking mode. It goes back and forth between the two functions. When I do manage to view a photo or delete one, it sounds like the camera is actually taking a photo. Could this be a problem with the memory stick? New batteries do not correct the problem.

I bought a second hand d70s. it seems to have a problem. the shutter release button does not seem to do anything when pressed half way (like auto focus). I can only get autofocus to work if i program AE-L/AF-L button to AF-ON. I press the AE-L/AF-L button on the back, then press the shutter to take the shot. And if i set the AE Lock On, pressing the shutter button half way does not lock the exposure setting. so there seems to be an issue with the shutter button itself...is there an easy fi

DSC P51 Trying to decide whether my camera is suffering from the defective CCD imager problem. I currently have a black image at all times, as if the shutter is closed. I removed the MS and reset the camera which didn't affect anything. On the Sony site it says to take a movie clip with sound then replay it. When I did that, it didn't replay the image and I heard no sound either. Does hearing no sound still constitute a prob with the CCD imager?

My Minolta 7D anti-shake appears to be broken. When turning on the camera it hums for several seconds then will not fire...the shutter button being inoperable. All of the anti-shake lights in the viewfinder are lit, and do not go away as per norm. I also think this might be a heat issue. Doest anyone have any solutions to this problem besides costly repair?

Its not a heat issue. The Anti-shake goes off as soon as the shutter opens and closes in split second. This is most likely to be a shutter release mechanism related problem. Since the shutter is taking too long to open/close the lights are not going ... Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D / Dynax 7D Digital Camera

Shutter Lag-Time The shutter lag-time on this camera seems quite long to me. I have read the manual that came with the book as well as a "short course" book on the G6 and this isn't really mentioned. I am wondering if this is a problem unique to my camera or if others have noticed this. In "AUTO" mode it is the worst. Am I missing something, or is this just the way the camera operates?

The G5 has a rather short shutter lag and a rather lengthy focus lag. So if you half depress the shutter release to focus, and then moments later fully depress the shutter release I expect you will find very little lag. But I would not expect a prosu ... Canon PowerShot G6 Digital Camera

Flash Problem Rebel XT flash icon shows next to "busy" in the view finder when I press the shutter button. If I attempt to take the photo the flash does not work.

I also connected my 420EX external flash and it also does not flash. Any suggestions are deeply appreciated. Thanks
