Customer Question
Batteries not powering camera...

Batteries not powering camera after 2 photos. Batties test well after the brief use in the Minolta Dimage 7. What could be the problem?

Technician's Assistant: Who makes your camera?

Minolta Dimage 7

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your camera?

I cleaned the contact sites on the lid closure. That is about all I can do.
