There are no parts for this model. Try E-Bay for a reasonable replacement.

When camera turned on it just reads HELP


Any of the problems listed below with give off a "Help" message on the external display-you can get this from a bad film transport system, failed aperture base plate mechanism, dropped focus screen, bent mirror, and a whole slew of electronic problems from blown boards to bad wiring connections.
Apparently there is no Minolta Service Centre to buy spare parts.

Fix shutter


Your lens is not communicating with your camera, which could be a result of unclean electrical contacts on the lens. Just wipe the electrical contacts that you see on the lens with a dry cloth to remove any residues on them and try again. If this doesn't work, you may need to contact service personnel.

My cameras lever is'nt advancing the film what could be wrong with this camera


The most likely fault is not that the camera won't advance but that the shutter won't release. This is caused by failed electronic components in the shutter release mechanism. This is common in these cameras and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.


If this response has been of any help to you, please be sure and give a positive vote for me on FixYa.com.

I have a Minolta Maxxium 3xi and the shutter is stuck how much would that roughly cost to get cost?


Depends on the camera store, and if any rare parts are needed to repair it. Most good camera stores will give you an estimate up front, although I would estimate $100-$300.

What battery for Milolta maxxum 400si


You need one 2CR5 lithium cell for your camera. They're still available, see here for details. Note that other suppliers stock them as well, I only link to the supplier provided as they're where I buy mine and the page shows you alternative model numbers that the battery is sometimes known by.

I have a Minolta X-370 camera that will not advance the film. Lever seems to be frozen.


The shutter is already wound and the shutter is not releasing.
You may have bad shutter release capacitors if the batteries are good.

My Minolta Maxxum 400si film SLR seems to have a jammed shutter and the shutter curtains seem to be mis-aligned (this would be because of the previous owner, not me) but the bottom curtain actually seems...


With the shutter curtain out of place the camera will not function. If it is only out a little you may be able to persuade the shutter blades to fall back into position. If you bend them, or if they are out of the proper tracks then the camera will have to be sent to a repair service for repair.

C Amera turns on, focuses, but will not fire.


The shutter may be damaged and need service. Look at the shutter if they look misaligned or even out of track tat is the problem. A repair tech could trouble shoot the camera, but repairs may exceed the cost of replacement.
