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

Konica minolta maxxum 7d support


This is a common problem with the 7D. The shutter curtain will stick after several years of service. Put the camera in clean mode to get the curtain to lift, or send it to Sony to replace it. It was a design flaw by Minolta.

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.

Minolta Dynax 7D I fined it dificult to auto focus using a 100mm macro lens even with a very sharp subject the lens just keeps running in & out I never had a problem with this & wonder is this a...


I don't know if I can help you. But I will try a guess. Some cameras focus on 1 point and it is not necessary the center. Maybe if you give your camera a point to focus on then keeping your fingers half cocked on the shutter shift the focus off-center to however you want to compose it, then click.
But if it was working properly before and then stopped working properly, did you lend your camera to someone, drop it or subject it to impact? I don't think anything is really wrong but I could be wrong. Have you checked the AF/MF button. Could someone may have accidentally pressed it?
If you are using the macro lens, did you check the camera's distance limits? I understand that the 7D actually focuses faster than the Canon EOS and Pentax. Canon and Pentax need to hunt that's why they take longer.
