Taking a trip with a Minolta A1 :)

Discussion in 'Minolta' started by lucky4fingers, Feb 11, 2007.

  1. It's like I'm back in the 60's again, however no drugs this time. The A1
    goes pychedelic on me - like the whole picture melted or washed away, or
    howizontal lines thru it. not all the time just some. Is there any hope or
    repair?
    TIA.

    There's a known problem with Sony CCDs, your description sounds very
    much like the one plagueing a bunch of Sony camcorders & cameras. I
    know. I have a camcorder with the problem.

    A quick google on 'minolta ccd' brought this up as the first link, the
    A1 is included:

    Here's a page with a description of the problem with Sonys:

    It was my understanding that Minolta did not 'close shop'. They were
    bought out by Sony. Hence the 'replace with Sony' tag.

    Nope. Minolta A1s are definitely on the list of affected cameras.
