I have found myself in dire need of the 2 right-side ''post guides'' for my Toyo 45E. The part number is: #90-C0106 according to MAC Group Camera, whom I trust and have made many purchases with before.Problem being; as of 2002 they stopped making replacement parts!
Can you direct me to a place of prayer that might still have 2 of these around???

Re: Right side Toyo 45E post guides
Chances are slim that you will find anyone with the parts. As a camera repairman, I would have never stocked those parts, trusting the distributor, in this case MAC group, to provide them when and if I ever needed them. I don't have a parts diagram for that camera to look at, so can't advise about the cost to "fabricate" the post guides, but short of finding a dead 45E to salvage from,it might be your only hope

You can order parts for most Toyo cameras direct from Toyo. You'd have to contact them directly for pricing, and they'd either give you something there, or refer you to one of their dealers to handle it. They have a website, toyoview.com from which you can get contact information.
You might want to check and make sure the battery is still good. If you purchased the camera used and didn't change the battery then this might be the case.
But in the mean time this is what you need to do: 1st-make sure that the shutter speed dial is set to any shutter speed other than the red circle w/red ring. If your camera is set to that it will drain your battery when not in use since it is designed to be an automatic setting. I set mine to 1/125th to do this push in the circular dial on the side and at the same time turn the knob.
2nd- locate the 2 levers on the opposite side of the shutter speed dial. Once you found them then position the back lever all the way forward towards the setting for "MULTI" and position the lever towards the front straight up.
3rd- then wind the film crank till it won't wind anymore and depress the shutter, if it is wound and the shutter release is still stuck then skip to the fourth step, if something happened and you heard a click then still proceed to the next step because no the shutter release will be temporarily stuck.
4th-Once both of these levers are in this position there should be a red
button just behind the shutter release button on the top right side of
the camera.... drum roll please...."Push the red button" what you
should hear is a rather loud click, this click is the mirror releasing allowing you to: 1 wind the film crank and take another picture and 2 this also now allows you to see through the lens again (assuming that you have a lens on the camera).
In Conclusion: without a battery that is fully functional in the camera this is how the camera will operate once you get a battery for your camera then reposition the levers on the side of the camera opposite of what I suggested (this will be the normal operating mode for the camera with a battery) then when you wind the film crank and depress the shutter everything will function normally.
The same thing happened to me. Make sure that the mechanism arm on the inside that pushes the picture up is connected with the metal piece on the right hand side. The two can come loose allowing the metal piece to not bring the arm with it when you take a picture. Also the roller could have fallen down a bit. From the inside, press the roller up (it will click when it is in the right spot). The roller should be even all the way across and pushed all the way to the top of the camera.
I hope this helps if you haven't been able to fix it already.
(When all else fails, try changing the batteries.)
I'M GOING TO ASK IF YOU HAVE THE CAMERAS MANUAL? IF YOU DON'T, I STRONGLY SUGGEST YOU GO TO THE MINOLTA X300 SITE ON THE WEB AND READ THE ONLINE MANUAL FOR YOUR CAMERA. YOU CAN ALSO PRINT PARTS OF IT YOU FEEL YOU NEEDTO HAVE FOR REFERENCE. THIS CAN BE VERY IMPORTANT IF YOU PLAN ON TAKING ANY REALLY GOOD LOOKING PICTURES. I CAN TELL YOU HOW TO LOAD IT NOW BUT YOU CAN GO TO THE SITE A LOOK AT IT BEING DONE AFTERWARDS, BASICAL YOU PULL UP ON THE FILM WINDER THAT IS ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE CAMERA YOU ARE AT THE BACK OF THE CAMERA. SO PULL THISS CRANK UP THAT RELEASES THE DOOR AND IT SWINGS OPEN AND YOU CAN SEE THE OTHER REEL AND KNOB ON THE RIGHT SIDE , TAKE THE FILM OUT OF THE PACKAGE AND PLACE THE FILM IN THE LEFT SIDE OF THE CAMERA UNDER THE LEFT CRANK WINDER WITH THE FILM TAB COMING OUT ALONG THE BOTTOM SIDE LOWER THE CRANK HANDLE INTO THE FILM CAN TOPUNTIL IT SEATS OVER THE NOTCH. NEXT PULL JUST ENOUGH FILM TO THE RIGHT TO REACH THE RIGHT SIDE CRANK SPOOL. IT HAS A TAB HOLDER ON THE BOTTOM WHERE YOU STICK THE END OF THE FILM INSIDE THE SLOT AND TURN THE CRANK SO ONE OF THE TEETH GRABS A NOTCHIT THE SIDE OF THE FILMWHEN IT DOES, JUST WIND IT A COUPLE OF TURNS AND YOUR DONE,THEFILM ADVANCE LEVER SHOULD BE MOVED NOW UNTIL IT REACHES 1 AND THEN CLOSE THE FILM DOOR AND PUSH DOWN THE LEFT WINDER CRANK TO LOCK THE DOOR SHUT,GIVE THE CRANK A COUPLE OF TURNS BACK TO TAKE UP ANY SLACK AND YOU ARE READY TO SHOUT! I'D PRINT THIS OF AND HAVE SOMEONE READ IT AS YOU DO IT AND IT WILL BE EASIER. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP, REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217
There are two screws on the right side that are hard to find. One is inside the battery chamber and the other is under the small cover surrounding the shutter release button. The cover is held in place by 2 sided tape. Pry it up carefully starting near the strap lug
This sounds like the second shutter curtain is not closing completely - it's not reaching the right hand side of the shutter opening; or it's sticking & thus taking a long time to close so the part of the frame behind that area gets massively overexposed. You can check this by firing the shutter with no film in the camera and the back open. If I'm right, I'm afraid it's a repair shop job - unless you can see a hair or something like it caught up in the shutter. If so, you might just be able to remove it (all of it!) with tweezers.
All you need to do, to correct this, is set your lens to highest F-stop number ( 16 or 22 ) and the FEE signal will disappear. Also note that you should lock this setting in ( on the side of the lens after you turned it to F 16/22) .
