Question about Minolta Dynax 60 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Shutter won't open

I admit i dropped my minolta dynax 60 camera on to the pavement (in its padded bag) from a distance of 12 inches or so. I had used 28 shots from my 36 ex 35mm film. I thought everything looked ok - but when i went to use my camera again 2 days later, the display function came on but was frozen, showing all the menu items - it didn't show mow many exposures were left, when i tried to shoot, the camera appeared to focus and then jarred without taking a picture or winding film on. taking off the lense i can see that the shutter won't open - am i in big trouble?

Hello

This does not sound good, it is probably the reflex mirror has fallen off of its pivots, it may or maynot be able to be re fitted.

Best thing is to try and find a repair agent to look at this.

From memory the best place to get Minolta fixed now in the uk is based in Bletchley in Milton Keynes, sorry cannot remember the name of the company

Hello. The batteries on my Minolta Dynax SPxi just died and i wonder how to change them? Do I take them out of the little plastic case or buy a whole new "set" of them? Thanks for any replies


Here is a link to the manual if you need one: http://www.uscamera.com/downloads/maxx3xi-om.pdf

Do not open the battery pack to try and replace the batteries, the are Lithium Ion. Purchase a new battery pack for replacement. Many available on eBay.

Where do you insert a sim card into a minolta maxxum 5 camera


Cameras, especially film cameras, do not use "SIM" cards. There were some models of Minolta film cameras that used exposure cards for auto-settings but only cellular phones and devices with cellular interfaces (iPads) use SIM cards. Here's a copy of the Maxxum 5 manual if that helps.

The zero (0) keeps flashing on my camera, it says 200 at the top which i think is the speed of the film but it wont let me take a picture. the camera is minolta 505si super DYNAX, help please!!


Hello,

This is a bit late but it might help!
The manual says this:
If the film is loaded incorrectly, 0 will blink in the frame counter and the shutter will remain locked.
Open the back cover and repeat the film loading steps.

Good luck.

Light meter or not on Maxxum 4


Yes, it has program, aperture priority, shutter priority and manual modes.The aperture and shutter settings should be visible on both the right hand top plate LCD panel, and also in an illuminate LED panel below the image in the viewfinder.

From memory (and I might be wrong) the Dynax 4 (Maxxum 4 in North America, Dynax 3 in Asia Pacific) light meter simply indicated a plus or minus symbol to indicate over or under exposure for the selected combination of shutter and aperture. The viewfinder display would have a steady dot to confirm confirm focus follwed by the chosen shutter speed and aperture setting.

I cannot find a link to anything other than a German manual, but the diagrams and a bit of mental application will go a long way if you don't understand German.

Note that if your camera's electronics have failed then there's nothing you can realistically do other than to replace it. Spares are not available and as a consumer level model it was never really intended to be serviced or repaired.

Need remte cord, minalta maxxum 5


The remote cord came in 2 versions: rc-1000s is 50cm (about 19 inches) and rc-1000l is longer at 5m (about 16 feet). Both are discontinued, but KEH.com lists an rc-1000l used right now for $13.00 US. Their stock changes daily. Its a reputable store. You could also check eBay or a local camera store.
