I think your camera had a microchip in it that changes modes. I could be wrong, I can't remember exactly what model it was. Take the chip out or reset it in the menu. How old is the film you are using? There is some film that is color film but a black and white emulsion. That can be developed in color processing.

I just bought a Minolta maxxum QTsi from a lady and it had no manual with it, I can't figure out how to load the film. Can you take me step by step on how to load the film and how the camera works when...


Hi, I've found the instruction manual online for you, http://www.mediacollege.com/equipment/manual/konica-minolta/camera/maxxum-qtsi.pdf that way you have it for future reference. For loading film you open up the back of the camera and make sure that the end of the roll of film is aligned with a red mark and then you close the back. For taking pictures you press the shutter button half way in order for it to focus, when the image you want is framed you press the shutter button the entire way and it'll take the photo.

I dont know what batteries to use and film to use on my minolta maxxum 70.


The Maxxum 70 uses two 3V CR2 lithium batteries.

The Maxxum 70 can use almost any 35mm film. Color prints, color slides, black-and-white prints. Do NOT use Polaroid instant film or infrared film.

Try new battery.

If still not working try opening back cover in dark environment see if camera film will reset.

Minolta maxxum 7000 troubleshoot camera wont take pictures


There are several possible reasons, it could be the body or the lens. Check the shutter blades without film. Are they smooth and in place, (flat)? It could also be related to the film, a mis-load of the roll. The lens could have some failure, possibly try another.

What is the "light" or just red color at the bottom near the "open" the back button of my Minolta Maxxum 5 camera?


Elizabeth,

What you are describing is the film chamber lock indicator. Basically, once a film is loaded, you cannot accidentally (or intentionally!) open the camera until the film has been fully rewound. This is to prevent you ruining a film. The red indicator is just to let you know it's locked.

More details are on page 23 of the camera's manual. If you haven't got one, you can download it from here.

Film is not developing


It's hard to tell without looking at the film itself, and it would help to know what type of film you are using (black and white? color?). My guess would be a light leak. If the film is exposed to any light, that results in a black picture, possibly blotches of color. Either you opened the camera before you rolled the film back into the canister (unlikely), or your camera is responsible for the light leak, in which case, you will have to bring it to a repair shop.

All pictures have black at top of picture


the shutter assembly is not fully open when shooting. Maybe the motor driving is possibly weak already. You have to bring it to the service center, if the price is not right, better buy a digital camera compatible with your minolta lenses. ( films are getting obsolete fast, but the lenses are not)
