    This was everything I could hope for. I now have the complete instruction manual. I am very happy and am excited about getting started taking pictures. The manual looks like it explains the operations of my camera in good detail. Thanks again, my problem is solved!!!!!

How to reset the camera


Try a manual rewind, and remove batteries and let it set for awhile to allow charges to seep out of capacitors. Film cameras usually don't have resets. Check batteries and battery contacts

Take about 4-5 pictures it self rewinds


Remove the bottom cover and check for sand/grit in the gears. Push both the rewind buttons (red rewind marks) and see if it resets. Otherwise it may be either a sensor (film movement) or circuit failure. There are no parts for these unless you can find them on Ebay. Minolta left the camera world years ago.

Need battery chamber lock for minolta maxxum HTsi plus


I'm assuming you need the whole chamber door. I think it would be pretty hard to find just the door, so I would suggest buying another HTsi Plus just to get the part you need. I looked on Ebay and saw an "HTsi body for parts". It was $30(USD) including shipping, not too bad. If there was a source to purchase just the door, I'm sure it would cost $10-20; so buying another camera body might be a better choice. You could probably buy a decent used/working HTsi for around $60-75. So it is up to you to decide what your best course of action is. If it is the door that you need, they are removed very easily (no tools needed).

You push the button and it will not take a picture. I put new batteries in it and it still will not take a picture.


My HTsi Plus never seems to be able to Auto Focus on a subject, so when you push the shutter button half-way, it just flashes the focus indicator (telling you it is unable to focus). Try switching over to the "Manual Focus" mode. On the front of the camera there is a button labeled "AF/M". Push that button to switch to manual focus. If the camera is in manual focus, the external LCD screen will say "M.Focus". Now try to snap a shot. If that still does not work, there may be something wrong with the camera or the lens. So, try using a different lens in manual focus mode. If it still does not work, then I would say the problem is with the camera itself.

How do you set the camera to automatic settings?


On the top of the camera (right next to the shutter button, there is a button labeled "P". When you push that button the camera will go back to the default settings: Automatic Focus/Exposure. So just use the "P" button.

I have a Minolta HTsi Plus. Recently I took some photos and there is a dark section (vertical) on 1/4th of the shot. It was daytime. The lab that developed them put "shutter lag" on the front of the photo...


If it was only when you used the flash, make sure the camera is set to 60 on the shutter for the flash. If this is happening all the time, then you need to send the camera off for repair.

I can't get it to turn on. I put a new AA battery in but it still won't turn on. Do I need special batteries? Or which button is the power button?


  • The HTsi & HTsi Plus cameras do not take AA batteries. They take two CR2 batteries. One AA battery will only be 1.5 volts. The CR2 batteries are 3 volts each, providing 6 volts to the camera(when you have 2 installed). So if you insert a AA battery, there is not a high enough voltage to allow the camera to operate, which is why it doesn't do anything in your case. The AA battery will not damage the electronics of the camera, but it may physically damage the "battery compartment door" if you have to force it closed.
  • There is a slide-type button on the back that is labeled "Lock . . On".
    The "On" mode is just that, it turns the camera on. The "Lock" mode is actually the "Off" mode.

Cant figure out where the shutter release cable hooks up oncamera


Sorry my friend, but the HTsi model lacks facility for a cable release. Use the self timer on a tripod instead to eliminate camera shake

Here's the link to a user guide if you don't already have one:
