GEORGE,
HAVE YOU TRIED TO GO TO THE MINOLTA WEBSITE AND ASK CUSTOMER SERVICE IF THEY HAVE MANUALS ONLINE? USUALLY YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO ACCESS THE MANUAL FOR YOUR CAMERA. MINOLTA SHOULD ALSO HAVE A TECH SUPPORT SITE THAT MIGHT ALSO BE ABLE TO HELP. I HOPE THIS GIVES YOU A FEW IDEAS AS TO WHERE TO START. I WOULD TRY THE MINOLTA WEBSITE FIRST. IF I CAN HELP MORE, JUST REPLY TO:

I have a Maxxum 7000i 35mm camera and in the display there is the word Help flashing what does this mean This happend after i tried a differnt lens, the lens opened than closed The lens that i tried was a...


Konica lenses do not fit Minolta cameras. I think you messed something up.

Minolta MC and MD lenses worked on the older manual focus Minolta bodies. They will also work on the Phoenix and Seagull clones of the old Minolta bodies.

The Konica lens should only ever be mounted on a Konica camera.

Your 7000i is now a Minolta paperweight. You need to send your 7000i for repair or replace it.

You could also look on Ebay for another Maxxum body to use your lenses designed for the Minolta A mount. As a rule, camera lenses are not interchangeable. You can use any Maxxum lens on any Maxxum body as a rule, but Minolta changed their flash shoe after the original 7000 series. Flashes that work with your 7000i will work with any subsequent Maxxum.

Only partial picture on frame


it could be a shutter problem. however if it is only when using a flash it would be sync. for flash photography most cameras have a shutter speed that they sync at normally 1/60

Is the Minolta Maxxum 7000 capable of using infrared film?


goneoutthewi,

once the shutter is closed or the shutter open and the mirror is up no light strikes the film except the image. don't forget to use the red markings on the lens as infra-red focuses on a different plane than visible light.

Presetting all buttons and dials


This question is answered for you in the 800si user manual. By pressing the program-reset button, marked with a P top right, this will re-set all camera fuctions, but not red eye reduction-data memory-and ISO setting. To turn on red-eye, press the flash-mode button in the inside of door, turn front or rear dial untill a small "eye" appears in data panel. When selected, the flash will fire a series of small bursts before the main burst, causing the pupils to close slightly, so reducing red-eye. To turn off red-eye, select another flash mode. Resetting all custom fuctions, press and hold the ajust button in door of panel, slide main switch to LOCK then return it to ON.

When using flash it flashes multiple times when taking picture..strobe flash


Hello
You will find that if the flash pulses slowly several times before taking the main picture you have got the camera set to red eye reduction flash, you will see an eye symbol on the display.

Check the owners manual for the method of changing this to the setting you need.

Added flash mount


LOLEE, I'M NOT FAMILIAR WITH THAT FLASH, BUT I HAVE SOME GENERAL INFO THAT MIGHT HELP. FIRST, IS THIS FLASH USING THE CAMERA " HOT SHOE " MOUNT? IF IT IS, ARE YOU SURE THAT THE FLASH IS FULLY INSERTED IN THE HOT SHOE? NEXT, IS THIS FLASH COMPATIBLE WITH YOUR CAMERA? YOU SEE, SOMEHOW THE CAMERA IS NOT GETTING THE INFO THAT THE FLASH IS CONNECTED. I WOULD CHECK ALL CONNECTIONS TO BE SURE THEY ARE TIGHT. HOPE THIS GIVES YOU SOME IDEAS TO WORK ON. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP, JUST REPLY.

What is the "light" or just red color at the bottom near the "open" the back button of my Minolta Maxxum 5 camera?


Elizabeth,

What you are describing is the film chamber lock indicator. Basically, once a film is loaded, you cannot accidentally (or intentionally!) open the camera until the film has been fully rewound. This is to prevent you ruining a film. The red indicator is just to let you know it's locked.

More details are on page 23 of the camera's manual. If you haven't got one, you can download it from here.
