    ROBBIE, YOU SAY AFTER ABOUT FIVE MINUTES IT DISPLAYS HELP? WHAT SORT OF HELP? HOW LONG DID THE CAMERA SIT WITH THE BATTERIES IN IT BEFORE YOU CAME TO THE RESCUE? WHAT PICTURES WERE DISPLAYED IN THE DISPLAY WINDOW? OLD PHOTO'S OR NEW PHOTO'S? DO ANY OF THE OTHER CAMERA MODES SEEM TO WORK YET? IF YOU CAN ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS, WE MAY HAVE A DIRECTION TO GO IN AND HAVE A BETTER IDEA WHAT HAS HAPPENEDDURING THE TIME IT WAS IDLE. OK? REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217 AND WE WILL WORK ON THIS.

If the camera is going into rewind mode as soon as it is switched on you should check the manual rewind button and make sure it is not stuck in the on position. It is only a small rubber button that you would use a fine pen tip to push in, sometimes they can get stuck inside the cover and end up being on all the time. This model I think has the button on the bottom of the camera.

Cant find the batteries for the cam


It uses a 2CR5 battery, which should be available at most electronics or office-supply stores. An online source is at http://www.batteriesplus.com/product/31018-RAYRL2CR5--1-Lithium-Battery/563-0/4739-Film-Camera-Battery/56279-Minolta/Maxxum-400si.aspx

It has a Minolta A-mount lens. Any of the newer Minolta (and some Sony) lenses may be used. The older Minolta lenses for the SRT-series cannot be used.

Minolta Maxxum 400si is locked up


link to your manual, it tells us that we have a winding motor problem, I would do as you have done, so I would ensure that batterys are in great shape, the only other thing I could suggest is to try to turn the winding motor by hand in case it is just locked up. Failing that I presume the motor has died and needs replacement.

Thhe camra will not advance the film or take a


I used minoltas for a number of years while going through college, though unfortunately this problem is fairly common- was a few years back but first time it happened to me i took the camera in for repair and if i recall theres a part that just breaks inside (number of years, cant remember the part).

It would have cost me round £60 to repair- bout 6 times the cost of the camera from ebay- I eventually just started buyin a new one from ebay every time the problem cropped up again.

I realise it may not be what you want to hear if your particularly fond of your camera, but the cost of replacing a part may very well be more than the camera is worth.
At the moment I have a minolta XG-M sittin on my shelf, hoping to track down some service manuals and see about taking it apart- I'll let you know if i find anything out, even with my fancy digital camera i still miss using the old 35mm.

Film won't load on Minolta 400si Maxxum Camera


My daughter took the camera to her photography teacher he was able to load the film by wrapping more film around the roller. It's not as easy to load as my Canon. I thought we had put plenty of film around it already. Oh well, it's working anyway.
