Question about Minolta Maxxum 50 QD 35mm SLR Camera
The shutter will not close on the minolta, the term that comes to mind is a mirror lock I believe? It happened while someone else was loading some film into the camera I do not know how they did it, but when I went to take a picture the shutter opened, but now it won't close. I am about to take the thing apart, I can't find anyone within two hours reach that can help me, any info would be awesome, thanks.
Sounds like the shutter lubrication has dried out causing the closing curtain to stick. DO NOT try spraying an oil into the camera to try and fix this, it will cause more problems and could destroy the circuit board. I would recommend sending the camera to a shop specializing in the overhaul of older cameras.
