When I turn on my camera an F-- shows up on the top right hand corner of the window and it won't shoot.

This indicates that the camera cannot communicate with the lens. Older lenses don't have the electronics to communicate with the camera, and you have to switch the camera to the Manual exposure mode. If the lens does have the electronics, then try cleaning the electrical contacts on the back of the lens and in the mount on the body.

I have an olympus om-1 and the viewfinder is black. how can i fix this? I had it in my camera bag safely and today i took it out and loaded it and the viewfinder is black.

Make sure the mirror lockup switch is not activated. Take lens off camera, look inside camera through lens mount and make sure mirror is in down position. When the morror is up, it blocks everything in viewfinder.

Can u use the lenses of minolta slr camera with any other digital camera body today and if yes then models may be suggested

If you have manual focus Minolta lenses, then they are not usable on anything other than other manual focus M35mm Minolta SLR's.

If they have the Minolta autofocus mount then they will physically fit onto any of the current range of Sony Alpha SLR's and also the discontinued Konica Minolta digital SLR's, but there will be some issues:-
  • there will be a 1.5x magnification factor due to picture cropping caused by the digital image sensor being smaller than a 35mm film frame. As an example, a 70-200mm zoom lens will produce an image equivalent to that of a 105-300mm lens if mounted on a 35mm camera. Lens apertures are not affected by the 1.5 crop factor.
  • Earlier Minolta AF lenses relied on the camera body providing the autofocus motor. Later Konica-Minolta and Sony models lack this motor so the lens can only be used in manual focus mode.
  • If you have a later SSM (SuperSonic Motor) equipped lens and want to use it on an Minolta Alpha/Maxxum/Dynax 9 (different model names in different countries), the camera needs a complete additional circuit board which is no longer available.
  • Later Sony Alpha SLR's have far greater electronic communication with the lenses used. Many Minolta lenses will not be compatible and as Sony don't support legacy products there is no fix.
In short, Minolta MD lenses (manual focus) can't practically be used on any modern digital cameras, and Minolta Alpha (autofocus) lenses will physically fit onto a Sony Alpha digital SLR, but will act as if magnified and may not autofocus or work at all on a Sony SLR. But there's no harm in trying.

Sorry there is no absolutely definitive answer for you, but I hope that you now understand why and that you take a moment to rate my reply.

Developed film pictures have black around the edges

My guess would be that whatever lens your using is causing that. The black edges are basically caused because the lens may not be fit the camera correctly, causing the camera to "see" part of the lens itself when taking a photo.

Have minoltia maxxum 430 si rz lens buzzes when you try to focus.

Is it only one lens? what happens when you try another lens? Is the camera set for manual focus? Have you tried a new battery?

I only see black

You don't state the make and model of your camera, but what you've described is typical of what happens on many SLR cameras which rely on batteries to operate.

If you replace the batteries you should find that the fault clears. Leaving the camera in this state for longer than necessary can cause the shutter magnets to stick though so don't delay.

Please return the favour by rating my answer, but wait until after you've replaced the battery. If new batteries don't resolve your problem then please add a comment to your question including the exact make and model and I or others will try to give a model specific resolution to your problem.

Cannot get Error to go away

If it's a D lens or similar, check that the lens is set to its minumum aperture (and locked) - ERR normally means that the lens is not at its minimum aperture.

If your lens is a G lens, then the camera is probably faulty.

Minolta X70 SLR Camera

When camera is selected to operate in auto mode it measures light in the over all frame and put an average aperture (ie the f-numbers 3.5, 5.6, 8 like that, bigger the number lower the light goes through the lens) but that average f-num would not be sufficient or over at certain conditions.Like
A small cat on a large white background.
A small yellow rose on a large black background
In that situation a compensation is required
Or if your camera slightly under or over exposes in auto mode you can correct up to + or -2 steps (50% per step)
Totally you can over ride the camera control over 200% low or high lighting.
