Question about Photography
I RECENTLY PURCHASED 2 MINOLTA 35MM'S.
AN XG-1 & XG-9. BOTH ARE USED. THE FILM ADVANCE LEVER WILL
NOT ADVANCE ON EITHER CAMERA. CAN YOU GIVE ME SOME
If everything lights in the camera when you test it ,it means the battery is alright,try this trick"Rotate the film advance connection at the bottom of your camera using a nickle (not the battery compartment) the one directly at the bottom of the shutter and should click if there's not you have some bigger problem.Good luck.

the only real way to get the shutters to fire ( if not a mechanical problem ) is to take the top covers off and clean the contacts of all the sliding switches. both camera's are similar. check the flex circuit on top of the prism to be sure there is no broken circuits from impact damage not visible from the top cover .clean the battery covers and contacts. now the led's should light and the shutters fire. if the shutters don't fire then it's a component part on the flex circuit or mechanical failure. there are no new parts available for these models.
