Customer Question
Konica Minolta Dynax 5D...

Konica Minolta Dynax 5D is taking images that are just virtually dark but with random colour patterns on them.

Technician's Assistant: Are you experiencing the same issue in different shooting modes, or just one?

Different modes, different lenses, same result.

Technician's Assistant: Has there been any damage to your camera recently (e.g. from dropping it or getting it wet)?

No, nothing at all.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

No, just that.

Hi. My name is*****'m a camera repair technician with almost 30 years in the business and I'll be glad to help you with your question today.

What you are describing is a bad CCD image sensor. This is not repairable as the camera has been out of production for 15 years and the company is no longer in business.

Please provide a positive Rating so that I may be credited for my efforts.
If I can be of further assistance, please ask rather than leave a negative response.

Thank You

Rick

Hi Rick,No problem with the diagnosis and confirmation of camera death but just in case a similar enquiry comes up, this camera was only introduced from 2005 onwards so it can't have ceased production 15 years ago.Thanks for confirming it is for the bin though.

Close enough.

Please provide a positive Rating so that I may be credited for my efforts.

Thank You
