Minolta X-370 wont shoot

My new camera has locked up. It wont fire any pictures, or even wind. I took the lens off to further inspect the issue and noticed the mirror as down and everything looks in order. So, I replaced the lens, and opened up the back. The shutter and winds all look OK. what is wrong?

Shutter release capacitor needs replacing and is easy to replace on these models. Remove bottom cover ( 4 screws ) and locate the small 6v 220 microF capacitor and replace making sure you get the polarity right. ( these capacitors have life span of 10 years and then the rubber iside perishes and they leak.)

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.

MINOLTA X 300 SHUTTER RELEASE JAMMED. FITTING NEW BATTERIES DOES'NT HELP AT ALL. Barry.


The Minolta X-series (X-300/370, X-570, X-700) were known for this issue. Two capacitors under the top and bottom covers go bad over time. They prevent the shutter from releasing, so you cannot wind to re-**** the shutter. If you're handy at these things, you can buy the caps, remove the covers, solder in the new caps, and be fine. This issue is well known and you can find instructions on the web. Or you can send it in for repair. Garry's Camera repair in Niles,ILL will do it cheaply at $58 incl return postage. Look him up on the web.

Bad Minolta Maxxum lens?


Oddly enough, the camera and lens are working just fine now - or at least they appear to be. I'll shoot some more when I have good lighting and 1-hour them tomorrow for the results.

Won't take picture though I replaced battery.


Even though it was cushioned somewhat the camera took enough damage to jam something. The flashing symbols are a generic error code it could mean the shutter, zoom, film transport, flash, or some combination of these system are not working (sorry but without tearing the camera apart I can't narrow the problem any further)

Two possibilities : 1 ) your film was not properly loaded into the pick up spool and hence it was transported or exposed ; what you took to the lab was unexposed film. 2) the shutter is not opening and again no exposure takes place. To check this open back , set to slow speed like 8th of a second, and see if the shutter opens and closes properly. If the shutter does not open then it will have to go in, unfortunately. Cost ? If it is just an adjustment ( as I suspect is the case ) you should not pay more than $ 100.

Compatibility of vivitar lens with Minolta x370


Minolta X 370 is not an auto focus camera so provided you are willing to use the Vivitar lens in manual AND provided the lens has minolta mount , you will be able to use it.
