20 Most Recent Konica Minolta DiMAGE 7i Digital Camera Questions & Answers


Some sellers have some pretty good aftermarket replacements. Give them a look. Sony Center was makeing this job at 2010, but no more; even way, you could try calling at Digital Product Support: 1-877-462-4464 . Also, try asking in this link for Minolta Support site; additionally, I quote some comments about this part...

I got the round eyepiece from Orion Store Site and it fit perfectly. I liked it so much I adapted one to my more recent Panasonic. It was a perfect fit for the D7i. You stretch the rubber around the existing eyepiece.


Also, could try to contact with this seller: EC-1200-KONICA-MINOLTA-EYEPIECE-CUP-Dynax-5-4

Hope this helps.

I suspect 2GB is the maximum the camera will take. A 2GB Sandisk card works in my 7i. When the DiMAGE 7i was launched, 256mB was about as big as CF cards got!

Hello Sir

  1. 1 Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  2. 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  3. 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  4. 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  5. 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  6. 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

Sometimes if batteries are allowed to completely discharge, they cannot come back.

You need to format the new card in the camera before using it.

Having researched the internet - I've found a Minolta branded flashgun suitable for your camera. It has the bounce flash you ask for, however it's not cheap.

Here's the link:

I just found a solution to my camera problem. It turned out to be the batteries. We purchases some Rechargable Duracel with a 2650mAh rating. After charging the batteries I put them in the camera and it started right up and was taking photos like when we first bought it. I have not been able to use the camera in almost 2 years and it turns out the problem was weak batteries.

So anyone that has a Minolta Dimage 7i and cant get it to turn on make sure you have at least 2650mAh rated rechargable batteries. The higher the mAh rating the better.

Hope this helps someone else. We are ecstatic that we can use our camera again. No more using my camera phone!!!

TIPS:
1.)NEVER PUSH THE LENS IN AFTER CAMERA DIES, BUY A NEW BATTERY IMMEDIATLY AND TURN IT BACK ON, CLOSING THE LENS!

2.)NEVER USE AN AC ADAPTER, USE A RECHARGEABLE BATTERY OR A REGULAR BATTERY!

..to fix this...

Do as i say..

1.) Remove battery
2.) Remove front plate (screw driver may be needed)
3.) Check all gears, make sure they are correctly fitted in place)
4.) Move the gear manually to make the lens come out.
5.) keep it out, put the front plate back together.
6.) reinsert the battery, turn it on.


or...
1.) Remove the battery.
2.) Wait about 6-8 hours.
3.) Reinsert the battery.

or...
1.) Remove the battery.
2.) Try hooking it up through AC adapter, put correct voltage.
3.) Try turning it on.
4.) Remove AC adapter, reinsert battery.
5.) Turn it on.
If nothing happens just tell me..

Hope this may help;

Dimage 7HI, 7I, A1, Xi, F300, XT, X20, S414.

Konica Minolta... | Answered on Mar 12, 2008


The camera does not require a new CCD. This problem is most likely due to a stuck or malfunctioning shutter mechanism in the lens. Normally the camera will open the shutter to allow you to see the image so you can compose, and then when you take the picture it will close the shutter momentarily and record what the CCD saw at that moment. If the shutter does not open in the first place - all you see is black. If this is in fact your issue the camera will need to be repaired. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

go to the Konica Minolta customer technical support[now part of Sony] However I doubt an item of this age is repairable due to lack of parts.
