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.

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.

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.

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.
