Default I got an S404!

I got a Dimage S404 ( hard to find or what). A cinch to use, if picture quality matches ease of use I will be as happy as a pig in s***!

Default Dimage 404 Problems?

My initial experience with the Dimage 404 was not good. I picked one up at Ritz Camera for $499 and took it home, set it up, took about 10 pictures, and then went to my son's house to take some more. NO display - it turned to grey - no more view at all. The camera worked, but you couldn't set anything. I returned it to Ritz, MBG, which was fine, but now feel nervous about the product. Ritz now tells me that Minolta has a "new serial number series" for the cameras they just received, and these are supposed to be improved and not have this problem. Anyone else know about this?

I'm having a very bad time with my S404.
Bought on May 27. used for about a month wih no problems at all. Then all of a sudden LCD and Viewfinder died. I called their support and they said to send the camera for repair. I did. In about 3 weeks got it back. It worked at first (for 10 min)but when I changed the flash card it gave me "Card Error", I inserted the old card back - same problem. Then all of a sudden LCD and viewfinder - all grey.
I believe there is a fundamental flow with the certain serial numbers and feel I will try to get a replacement or my money back.
Please respond.
