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

Troubleshooting My Minolta Maxxum 7D will power up and shows a full battery charge but when I take a photo the screen goes blank,the picture does not process and the camera shuts down. Could it be possible the batteries are not fully charged and my charger is bad or is the problem more likely to be the camera itself?

After a while of reloading camera firmware and resetting defaults, I came tothis conclusion. You need to do a mock CCD cleaning on the camera which abuilt-in feature of the 7D, in which the camera locks up the mirror momentarilyso you can clean the CCD. But of course you do not need to clean the ccdat this point. Below are procedures to help get your camera back inoperation.

1.Try turning the camera off, then take out the battery.

2.Then replace the fully charged battery back in and turn the camera on but donot take any pictures.

3.Go to the menu of your camera and activate the CCD cleaning, which willactivate mirror lockup.

4.You will hear a mirror lock up/half exposure cycle sound.

5.One you hear this, take the lens off and make sure you can see the CCD but donot touch the CCD or allow dust to get on it.

6.Now place the lens back over the camera and turn the camera off.

7.You will hear the mirror unlock itself, then the camera will shut down.

8.Now turn the camera back on and start taking pictures.

This worked for me and my camera started taking better pictures; however, thesame problem came up again when I let the camera sit too long with a deadbattery. So I repeated the procedures and my camera is back.

My advice is never leave a completely dead battery in the camera. Alwaysstore fully charged batteries in the camera.

Charging Problem Charging appears complete after about 15 minutes. Normal charging time is 90 minutes. When the camera is turned on the oblong battery level indicator is filled white where previously it contained diagonal markings. The white disappears rapidly as the battery discharges within just a few minutes. Enough time to take a couple of picture. The camera then shuts down.

Pentax Optio 555 Digital Camera. Once I have taken a couple of photos in a row, the camera continually flashes red & green. Like it is continually thinking. I cannot then even get the camera to shut down eithout removing the battery or just leaving it until it times itself out. If i remove the battery, I still have to turn it on & then off again to get the lense to retract. Can you help to solve this problem. It does it no matter what the charge in the battery is like. Full or half used.

Hello ... Digital Cameras

Zooming FE-280 camera - Worked great for about 2 weeks. While on vacation developed a problem - when you turn the camera on the lens goes in and out like it is trying to focus. Once it is through with the lens action when you try to set up for a picture (any mode) and focus on the subject the camera will not focus and then shuts down. Acts like the battery is dead but camera shows fully charged battery. Any ideas?

The exactttt same thing happened to me. I think i still have a warranty on it, and every body has been trying to help me, but it seems the camera is just retarded- and just needs to be replaced ... Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera

Will a 1500 mAh battery work in a Kodak DX 7590? The original battery was a 1700 mAh. Everything else is the same as the original battery. I thought the original battery was going dead and wouldn't re-charge, so I bought a new battery. The camera acts like it wants to turn on, but doesn't. The power comes on briefly, but camera lens doesn't open. The ring around the settings dial flashes green., then turns to red, and shuts off. Please help!!!! I love this camera!!!

The answer is YES, the Kodak DX 7590 can be supported by a Li-Ion 1700 mAh battery. The only difference is that the 1700 last longer. Just make sure the one you just purchased is fully charged. Otherwise, exchange that battery from the store you b ... Kodak EasyShare DX7590 Digital Camera

Batteries "depleted" my camera was working perfect with some rechargeable NiMh batteries i had bought, giving me about 400 shots / charge. However at one point, for no apparent reason, when i used them, they would be shown as 'depleted' by the camera after about 4-5 shots, shutting the camera down. It stayed like this so I decided to buy a set of new NiMh batteries, i bought panasonic brand. But the problem remains now, whenever i insert batteries, they will be depleted (or at least according to

Hi! I took several shots yesterday and went to upload the pix on my computer today and when I connected the camera to my computer the battery was at 100%. Then the camera completely shut off. I tried turning it back on with no result. I recharged the battery with the same result. I figured my battery must be dead ( yet only 1 year old) and purchased a new one. I fully charged that one and plugged my camera in again and the same thing happened! What could this be caused from? No damage has ever

Batteries I bought my camera 3 days ago, used it once to take about 6 pictures yesterday, and the batteries went dead. I charged them according to the directions and now when I turn it on it reads a fully charged battery until I try to take a pic, then a message appears reading "battery depleted" and it turns off. It is brand new and only used once, what could it possibly be?

Lens Error My cameras battery was low but I kept taking pictures until the camera shut off by itself. The lens didn't retract all the way and now when I try to turn my camera on it makes a clicking noise like the lens wants to move but it doesn't and on the back screen it states a lens error.

I need a new BATTERY DOOR for my Fuji Finepix S7000. I tried to order just the door from numerous sources & they could not get it (because Fuji insists on me sending my entire camera to them)! This repair would take 60 seconds IF I could just get a door....I finally sent the entire camera to Fuji & they charged me over $100. Obviously the door is flimsy, but I love the camera. Would like to order the door ONLY (and maybe even a spare for future similar problem) Thanx!

Two things....my approx.18 month old battery died and i bought a replacement yesterday. is this the normal life expectancy? 2nd. Today, with a totally charged battery, I took eight pictures.
