Question about Minolta Maxxum 800si 35mm SLR Camera

2 Answers

Noise from the built-in flash and it can not stand in position.

The built-in flash of my Minolta 800SI generates some noise when lifting it up each time, and it can not stand firm in position - it drops to close position if camera lens facing down, but it functions if camera lens facing up.

Any insight on this?

The xeon tube actually moves as you zoom to a longer focal length, and it sounds like this is not happening, and this will produce noise like a buzzing sound, as any electric circiut will do if there is any interruption within that circiut.. As for not standing firm, I do agree with palmyman that it has received some slight damage, most likely by pulling up the flash head just a little too abruptly, and it has come adrift from its housing. I would advise expert repair.

This camera should not make any noise when you lift the flash head up as it is a manual system i.e. you have to physically lift it up,

It will make some noise as you zoom backward and forwards as it has a zoom motor for the flash head so the flash coverage is correct at different focal lengths.

If you are saying it is floppy then it is broken and needs to be looked at, if you carry on trying to use it, something may short out in the head and cause a loud bang and you camera will stop working.

Fisher and paykel fridge is making a whining noise only when door is closed. Thanks in advance.


If this is a large cabinet or larder fridge the cabinet is not rigid enough to maintain it's shape unless it rigidly stands level and square. It can take a deal of time and effort to adjust the front feet in order to level and square the cabinet on a relatively flat floor and sometimes it is impossible without first preparing the floor.

It is important for them to stand level and square and at the same time stand firmly on all the feet. If they are allowed to operate out of plumb for any length of time the motor/compressor unit can soon become noisy. Often this is only noticed when the door is closed or open. The door is a major part of the rigidity of the modern fridge and if the fridge is not properly levelled the shape of the cabinet will change as the door is opened and closed causing any compressor noise to be transmitted differently.

The gas charge of the modern fridge can also make weird noises as it is being pumped around the circuit. Ours sometimes sounds like the wind blowing across an open chimney and sometimes like the sea breaking on to a pebble beach and sometimes like something sprung a leak. All this is fairly normal after the fridge has lost it's youthfulness.

It is making a humming noise


Does it change with vehicle speed or engine rpm?
vehicle speed: check wheel bearings lift vehicle and support it with jack stands grab the wheel at the 12 and 6 o'clock positions( to rule out steering linkage play) and wiggle in and out. A bad bearing that loud will have some play.

Car makes a big clunking noise when you first start to move


Hyundai Sonata is a front wheel drive.
When moving in a straight line,the noise will be from motor mounts,transmission mounts and stabilizer support from the top / front of the engine.
Inspect for rubber bushing ware and loss mounting.
Lift up the vehicle with jack stand or a shop lift to give a better view of the worn parts.
======
Check the CV plastic boot axles.
A worn CV will make noise on tight turns.

How do we insert the coffee pods


Open the brew mechanism. Opening the brew
mechanism will initiate the heating of the water and the
HEATING light will flash.
2 Place a clean cup on the cup stand, adjusting the height of the
stand up or down so that the rim of the cup is close to the
brew mechanism.
• To adjust the cup stand, insert your finger in the center
of the stand, lift and turn.
• To avoid spilling over, please choose the right sized cup for
the drink you are making.
3 Position your choice of T-DISC on the T-DISC holder, label facing
down. Firmly close the brew mechanism by pressing the clamp
down until it shuts. The HEATING light may flash again as the
machine heats the water to the required temperature for
your drink.
4 When the AUTO light illuminates, press and release the start/stop
button. Brewing will start automatically. There may be a short pause
during brewing; this is normal and is designed to draw out the full flavor
of your drink. The AUTO light flashes throughout the brew cycle. When
the machine has finished brewing, the indicator light will move from
AUTO to MANUAL and then, after a delay of 30 seconds, to HEATING.
5 Open the brew mechanism, remove the T-DISC and discard.
Your drink is now ready to be enjoyed.
You can prepare the next beverage right away by repeating
steps 2 - 5.

R1100s 2000 65000miles After a 30min or more run upon stopping a clicking noise comes from the rear of the bike as the suspension moves. This has gone the next morning when the bike is cold.


Possibilities include:

-worn shock bushings
-worn/faulty bearings at final drive pivot point

If you have a center stand for your bike, you can do some diagnostic work yourself with the bike on the ctr. stand.

Try moving the wheel while holding it at 12 and 6 and 9 and 3 O'clock positions. Listen/feel for clicking. This would indicate a loose or defective final drive pivot bearings.

Lift the wheel from the 12 o'clock position and see if the click noise comes from the shock bushings.

Very hard to diagnose without a center stand or service stand.

Good Luck

What year was the Minolta Maxxum 7000, serial number 16043985? Thanks, Karla


I do not know for certain. You might find that answer on the Yahoo Minolta groups.
The Maxxum 7000 was introduced to the US market in 1985. Sold as the Alpha 7000 in Japan and Dynax elsewhere, it was replaced by the 7000i in a couple years. Then the 700, the 700xi, the 700si, the 70 and the 7 was the last film based 7 series. There
They also made 8000i, 800si, etc. The 9 series was the Minolta Professional cameras and they had the toughest bodies, weatherproofing, higher shutter speeds, and more.
Later models introduced better autofocus, better exposure options, wireless flash, faster film advance, etc.
