Question about Minolta Instant Cameras
I have a minolta dynax maxxum 700si the problem is the mirror is locked in the up position and the camera if flashing the word HELP in the top LCD
That same problem popped up on mine about three months ago after I put new film in it. I was only able to get a few shots out of it before HELP appeared in the window. Then everything locked up. I was able to reset the HELP by taking out the battery momentarily, but the problem reappeared. Also, after that, my pictures were mostly blank.
I opened up the back and found that one of the four thin metal shutter "flaps" had popped out and was jammed out of place. I probably snagged it with my fingernail when I loaded the film. I was able to tuck it back in place and now the HELP problem is gone.
Haven't taken any pics yet, but I'm hopeful. BTW, it also fixed my built-in flash, which had stopped working, also.

Sounds like the shutter or mirror assemble is damaged and needs repair. This is a major repair that a technician will need to preform.
