Hi everyone!

Here is trouble with my Z3.

Often, wheni start Z3, and when i startdo a focus (press short),the picture on LCD getting lost. There is a screenshot how it looks like:

but, if press button futher to shot a picture, then picture is OK (may be focus on this picsare not good, but anyway...) and after it isagain the same situation on LCD.

If i do a video then it looks like:

This bug was from the begining, when i bought camera. And in 90 percent times it disapearing if i switch off and switch on camera.

I think that it is a problem with CCD.

Does anybody have the same probs? Your opinions about that bug? What do you think?

Hi,

I haven't had this problem, but have you ever upgraded the firmware? A problem like this could arise if the firmware installed weird. Also it sounds like the camera was defective from the start. So I would call Minolta about this problem, and tell them that it happens like 90% of the time. If they don't do anything (but I think they will) then I would contact the store you bought it from. Seeing that it sounds like they sold you faulty merchandise. Although I think Minolta should be able to help you out. Especially since you didn't do anything to the camera.
Hope that helps you.

No, I doubt it is a firmware problem. . . I think you just got a defective camera. Bring it back to the store, and see if you can return it for another one. . .otherwise contact KM.
