    Looks like the 15yld digital camera automatic flash is not working and one way to fix it is to lift the flash up and press a little button.

    OK that easy BUT it will not lift up and a big warning do not try to lift it up.


    Out comes the old DSLR and its in perfect working order for some stupid reason/s I was having a lot of problems using the view finder so I just put it away and used the old rotating head digital as its perfect for taking photos with out the view finder.


    A few days ago I dug it out and recharged the battery only to find I can use the view finder perfectly.


    I must admit I have had a few eye ops since I last used it.

    I still prefer the large viewing screen and will keep an eye open for what suits my eye and pocket.


    I did a test run and every thing OK all I have to do now is learn how to use it, the Daughter often goes into the city where the Camera store is and they will give me a quick run though it no problems at all.


    In the mean time off to Uni to learn how to read the massive instruction book, I also have a big ring flash I can use if necessary plus several lenses.

    Hi Keith, Glad you got the camera sorted :)

    The Instruction books are on the large side. To be honest some of its content go's way over my head :disturbed:

    I am managing the camera a lot better than I thought.

    There are two major differences I have found already, the flash does not pop up automatically and no message to say card not in.

    The camera is a Konica Minolta A -7 the lens are both Konica Minolta I am using so far is AF 50 Macro the other main lens is AF DT 18-70

    I also have other lenses, a top flash plus a square ring flash that I can control the flash on each side, that gives you plenty of flash options.

    All I have to do is learn how to use it again.
