Re: Minolta 700si rewind Problems

I dont get it! All I know is that almost all of film cameras rewinds when it reaches the end of film. Find the switch that turns off the autorewind function.

Rewind crank is loose on my Minolta XG 1 Film SLR

There is a spring in the bottom of the rewind knob that holds the crank, and it sounds like it has dislodged or the plastic rewind knob is cracked (try small amount of super glue for this). You can rewind the knob off the shaft (open the film door and put something in the rewind fork to keep the shaft from moving) and then turn the rewind knob opposite the direction of the arrow (if the arrow says turn clockwise, then turn counter clockwise). This will allow you to remove the rewind knob assembly and check it for damage, etc. Also, there is a small shaft at the end of the crank. Make sure it is not bent.

The battery in my Minolta Maxxum 7000 died while rewinding. I replaced the battery, but nothing happens and the rewind-button/slide is stuck. How do I reset this slide, so I can rewind my film?

Sorry to hear you're having troubles with your Minolta. First thing I would do is make sure that the batteries you put in our good and that you do have power coming out of that battery box. He didn't mention whether the batteries had corroded or if there had been any corrosion previously. The rewind button on this camera will not reset until the camera again advances. In other words it is an automatic release on the camera fires the first time after a rewind. So as an beginning answer to your question I would check the batteries again make sure that all contacts are absolutely clean and as you may have noticed the battery boxes on the Minolta do pivot. The contacts under the pivot points also have to be clean. If you checked all of these issues and you're still having problems please feel free to e-mail me at,
Thank you good luck

I have a Minolta 700si and want to put a MD Zoom Minolta Celtic 100-200mm lens on it. Is there an adapter that I can get to use this lens and have it fit properly?

There were years ago, but you did not have auto-focus or metering as I remember. Also there adapter had an optic that was not too good so the lens lost a lot of quality when used. Get an SRT-101 for use with the Celtic lens.

Rewind runs but film still seems stuck & won't rewind-Max 3xi

It could be that there is a broken or missing gear in the rewind. It will spin but not catch. Sometimes when film is loaded it, is not drawing the film across and missing a gear, so it seems like your taking photos and its not. If you sent it to minolta, good luck, they were bought out by Konica, and probably didnt' do a thorough analysis of it.

I have a friend who fixes cameras. Cleans them, lubricates them, and callibrates them,

Hope this helps you

Camra crashed

If the camera is going into rewind mode as soon as it is switched on you should check the manual rewind button and make sure it is not stuck in the on position. It is only a small rubber button that you would use a fine pen tip to push in, sometimes they can get stuck inside the cover and end up being on all the time. This model I think has the button on the bottom of the camera.
