I dont get it! All I know is that almost all of film cameras rewinds when it reaches the end of film. Find the switch that turns off the autorewind function.

There were years ago, but you did not have auto-focus or metering as I remember. Also there adapter had an optic that was not too good so the lens lost a lot of quality when used. Get an SRT-101 for use with the Celtic lens.

SOURCE: my Minolta Maxxum 700si is blinking HELP on the

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.

My handgrip is also cracked


There's a phrase which comes to mind: "You're flogging a dead horse".

Your camera is far too badly damaged to even be worth attempting to repair, especially when you consider that it's largely electronic and not like earlier mostly mechanical models. The last working example I saw on an auction website sold for under £60 and a wreck with a severely cracked body (left hand grip) sold in the USA for £7.42 (US$12.08 at current rates). If that's your camera then you can probably sell it for what you paid for it and even make a slight profit if you sell the body cap separately.

I hope you don't think that I've been unhelpful, but I'd be lying to you if I indicated even the slightest bit of hope for your wrecked camera. Cut your losses and buy another

Manual for maxxum 700i


Try the following website link

http://ca.konicaminolta.com/support/manuals/film-cameras/film_af_slr/index.html

Not sure what model you have as Minolta did not make a 700i, it is either a 7000i or a 700si, either way the owners manual for both these models is avaliable from this site
