Try gently cleaning the electronic contacts on the camera body and the rear of the lens, without touching the rear lens element or the mirror in the camera.

Put on proper protection for your skin/eyes, then remove the old ones, clean with some general cleaner or cola(yes like Coca Cola or Pepsi, etc. as it eats corrosion), then replace the batteries with new ones and see what happens!

Check your 'C' drive on PC. The path to the software will either be C:\Program Files\ or C:\Program Files (x86) if you have installed it.

If you need to find appropriate software, contact Konica Minolta, its usually a free download for you to install.

The answer to this, and many other questions of a similar nature, may be contained in the manual. If you have no manual, you can download a manual for almost any equipment by Googling the make and model followed by the word Manual, then follow the appropriate link(s).

An older camera, the DiMage A1 came with a 16mb card. Some cameras are picky about which cards work best. Compact Flash cards are sold in different speeds and your camera may work faster with a faster card. This camera can use Compact Flash type I or type II, and is compatible with the microdrive card. Since this camera was introduced the capacities of Compact Flash cards have increased dramatically so I believe you should be able to use a larger card with no problems but I would check out some of the online photography sites to read about other's experiences. Here is one good resource:

Hope this helps!

You cannot find the age of Minolta lenses by the serial number, Minolta didn't use serial numbers like that. Some lenses have (c) xxxx for the year the type were first manufactured but that means the range, not that lens.
This site has the different versions of the range.

Most lens have a red spot on them. There is usually a red spot on camera (look on left side). The one on camera body is the unlock and needs to be pushed and held in as you rotate lens red spot towards the camera spot. When they line up you can remove lens. ?

As far as I can tell, the STsi doesn't have a panorama mode; doesn't have any way to take anything but full-frame pictures.

If you need a manual, you may view/download one at http://www.fixya.com/support/p156128-minolta_maxxum_stsi_qd_35mm_slr_camera/manual-15137

That depends on how old the old stuff is. If the lenses have the ancient Minolta SR mount then you're pretty much out of luck (or you can continue using them with your old camera). If the lenses have the Minolta A-mount then they will mount on the Sony alpha-series digital SLRs.

You directed this question at me, but unfortunately I'm unable to provide you with a "real" solution at this time. FixYa has informed me that by providing you with this "solution" your question will then be made visible to other experts; hopefully one of them will be able to provide you with a real solution.
It also might help if you ask a question instead of simply naming a lens.
Thank you for using FixYa.

It sounds like the camera isn't detecting the film, but it could be a more serious problem with the hardware...whatever it is, fixing it usually involves swapping out the "brains" of the unit, if it isn't simply the film sensor mech. Even that can require extensive repair..
If it was advertised in good working order, I would return it, since it probably isn't. Communicate with the previous owner to see what can be resolved.
Good luck, and hope this helps.
