I had exactly the same problems you have had on a 5d.

feels like a small jack hammer in your hand when you turn it on, Everything in the options works and the auto focus works, But the shutter refuses to release. All the other symptoms blinking anti shake, refusal to turn off were the same as well.

I sent mine in for repair and they said the anti shake system was to blame. The massive amount of vibration is the calabration of the anti shake failing to find it's centre.

The repair has been done by the ex-minolta techs here in the uk. And it has cost L144. Which includes a full service as they have to rip the camera to bits when they change the components.

Chances are your camera is perfectly fixable.

Was this by the guys in Milton Keynes?

If so, they appear to be building a good reputation for fixing out of warranty jobs on 5&7Ds together with film cameras.

Yes, and when the camera is ready I'll take Nesbit down to pickup his camera ;)

I might have taken mine in for a service, but I'll just soldier on until it becomes critical (memory eject card doesn't work and needed a sensor clean).

I've done the sensor now ;) So I can save that service cost. But it is nice to know they're only 60-90 minutes down the road from us and are pretty flexible.

The day we took it down I got Nesbit to ring them to tell them we may be late etc, and an arrangement was made for them to stay open until 1730, as it was we arrived at about 1705 but it was worth it than rushing

Cheers Elwyn, it's good to know that we have at least two sevice facilities in the UK. Fortunately we still have extended warranties on my son's 7Ds but there will come a time when we need a good workshop I'm sure.

Happy Shooting.

5D problems continue! I found that I had paid for an extended warranty and had to send the 5D off to Adelaide for repairs. Came back a day before I went on a cargo ship 'cruise' to Cape York. Took 5/6 shots and 5D stopped working! Not the Access light staying on this time. After inserting the battery it would take a few shots but once turned off and then on again it would not operate. If I left the battery out for a few hours I could repeat the process. After turning on there is a prolonged clicking noise and then shutter will not operate.So back for another extended warranty claim (good investment). I am still waiting for advice that it has been fixed.

If you're talking about the KM 5D and a parts replacement for the shutter assembly then no, there are no parts available except from a donor body.

Thanks,
Its an old Dynax 5D from Konica Minolta days.

It has not been used for some time, maybe a year or two but has been kept in a warm dry environment.

I took the battery out and recharged it and it has and is holding 8 Volts which is above the 7.4 volts on the spec for the battery. I tried it last night and it was still a problem. I took the battery out and left the camera switched on over night. I put the battery back in this morning and switched on and it is working ok now.

A mystery? How long will it go now?

Not long is the answer.

It was ok this morning but it has given up again and displaying the same symptoms.

I have take the battery out and the voltage is 7.8 volts. That is still 0.4 volts above the spec. on the battery.

One other point, the autofocus works to some degree but the images are not crystal clear. They are much better with manual focus.

It is the original battery so perhaps it is the problem.

Any comment welcome
