Question about Konica Minolta Maxxum 3Xi 35mm SLR Camera
I have had this camera for about 15 years. When I reach the end of the film, the motor cuts on to rewind the film, but the film does not actually rewind. I have taken it to be fixed, it was sent to Minolta and returned to me with the same problem.
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
