Minolta DiMAGE Z1 review
Please help. It won't turn on.
After being a satisfied user for about a year, my Minolta Dimage Z1 heated up suddenly one day. I was out of the country and my rechargeable batteries had no charge left, so I was using Kodak disposable AA's. As soon as I felt the heat, I took the batteries off and stopped using the camera. Once I got back home, I charged the batteries and inserted them in. When I pressed on the power button, it turned on and in 3 seconds, turned off again. That's what it has been doing since. Once it turns off, it doesn't respond to any more presses on the power button for a few minutes. Later, it turns on when I press the power button and then turns off by itself in 3 seconds or so. The behavior is the same with disposable batteries. I haven't tried a power chord because I don't have one.
