Question about Minolta X-700 35mm SLR Camera
My shutter release doesnt activate the shutter. the camera feels like its already cocked but the shutter isn't releasing
Check for dead batteries first - if not that, the magnet capacitors need to be replaced, or the release magnet cleaned.

Remove bottom cover and locate the 6v 220 microF capacitor and replace . The capacitors that go into these models start leaking after 10 years.

There are actually two capacitors, one on the bottom of the camera, the other on top, just beneath the film speed selector. these are both 220uF, 4V electrolytics. they can be successfully replaced with 220V 6.3 volt capacitors (tantalums are best), provided the size is essentially the same. Just make sure you install the capacitors the same way, as incorrect polarity will cause the caps to fail. check out http://www.twid.de/x700/disas.html for detailed instructions.
