Snapped off flash; how to remove flash mount from camera body?
I accidentally sat on my camera, and broke off the flash at the base. I am left with a piece of the mount still attached to the camera body. How can I remove this broken piece of the flash, to leave behind just the camera body? Thanks

There is a lens release button to the right of the lens mount - make sure it is pressed fully before trying to rotate the lens to remove it. When you press the release button, there is a little pin in the lens mount that is retracted to let the lens turn. If you do that and the lens still does not rotate to be removed (and you are rotating it the opposite direction that you mounted it) then the release button assembly is probably broken and the camera will need servicing.
1. You have not set the lens to it's smallest aperture before fitting it to the camera body; or...
2. The EE servo coupling post on the outer edge of the lens mounting flange on the body has broken off. This is a switch which senses when the lens is set to it's minimum aperture. Looking at the camera body, with the lens removed, it's at about the eight o' clock position on the outer edge of the body lens mounting flange.
1. is easily fixed:just fit the lens correctly. 2. Really needs a professional repair, but as you can get a used F60 (N60 in USA) for free these days (FreeCycle/Freegle) it's not worth doing: just fasten it permanently in the "activated" position. Do a bit of googling and you'll see what I mean.
I hope this has solved your problem, if so please rate my answer.
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.

Greetings! Answer to your question is, ‘Yes’ we can. Use Sigma
FD lenses. As we know Canon AV-1 has electronically controlled
AE (Automatic Exposure) & has a Canon Breech-lock lens mount. Original generation of FD lenses featured a silver
locking ring at the base. Only that locking ring turns to lock the lens to the
camera body; the lens body remains still. In the newer lens system which was introduced with
this camera, the user has to line up the red dot on the lens, with the red dot
on the camera and simply turned the whole lens clockwise until it clicked into
place. Note: FD-mount cameras could use FL lenses in
stop-down metering mode. Thank you & have a nice day.
You don't say whether ou've tried using the reset button, which unlocks the mirror after lock up. As you look at the camera face on (shutter top left, rewind arm top right) then its about at 5pm on the lens mount. Whilst pressing that down, rotate the manual speeds band (found on the lens mount on the body) round to B, which should unlock the mirror.
If it does, it should work normally with new batteries in.
Remove the batteries for 5 or 10 minutes. Remove the lens from the body and replace it. Make sure the lens is on f22 before you put the batteries back in and turn on the camera. If this doesn't solve it, try rewinding the film you have in the camera and try a new roll. The other thing to check if none of the above works is to remove the lens and check the small tab just on the outside of the mount ring at about 7:00. The tab is spring loaded and you should be able to push it with your finger and it will snap back. If it doesn't, the tab plate will need repaired or replaced
