I am guessing that the film is supposed to wind itself on when you close the camera? If you open the camera you may see that the film "leader" has not been drawn into the camera. When you load the film pull a small amount of the film (1 or 2 inches) out from the canister and place it into the (usually) right hand side of the camera where you will see the gears waiting to engage in the sprockets to pull the film in. The film should also lay flat across the rear of the camera where there are gears top and bottom that should engage with the film.Also check you have fresh batteries.

Minolta 700 film advance lever was working, then it wouldnt wind, now it is stuck.


Use or buy a brand new battery from store that sell lot of them.

Do not get from store that only has a few, meaning they have been sitting there for years.

Film advance lever wont move


Do you have a film in the camera? If so is it all exposed? Best thing to do is press the film rewind button and try the lever at the same time - this will eliminate stuck film issues as it removes film tension from the system. If this does not solve the issue then you need someone to have a closer look.

My minolta wont load the film


There are contacts that "read" the film. Try cleaning them. If that does not work, check in the manual where to make the ASA in manual mode. That means ever time you load film, you have to check to make sure your ASA of the film matches the camera. If that work, you are good to go. These cameras are from the 90's.

Help with minolta x-300s, i cant seem to move the film winder


Well, here's the most likely things going on:

1. dead battery. Your X-300 has an electronic shutter that needs battery power to work. Try fresh batteries and check the battery contact wires for corrosion.

2. End of roll. If you have film in it, try the silver button on the bottom. rewind film and try another roll of film. Before you put in the new film, try the advance, click, advance, click thing.

3. Not all rolls of film are perfect. Some are shorter than they should be, some hang up in the canister.

4. The Minolta X-series were well known to have a problem. Two cheap capacitors on the later models would die, locking up the camera. One is under the top plate and the other under the bottom plate. These caps need to be replaced. I suggest you send it to a repair shop for that. Check prices. Garry's camera repair in Niles, IL does a very economical repair on these. It runs about $50 and $8 for return ship. He will also Clean, Lubricate and adjust it.

You could also buy another 300/370 on Ebay, as they're inexpensive these days.

Best of luck. Hope its just the film or batteries. You might also consider joining the Yahoo Minolta groups.

The film wont advance


remove and reinsert battery.
be sure you pulled the film all the way across the back.
be sure the door latches.
be sure camera is on.
try the rewind button, it may think it has film in it, ready to rewind.
Still no good? film advance motor may be dead. If so, it needs repair. Lucky for you, the Maxxum 50 goes for cheap on Ebay. You can get another at a good price.

Film Advance


You rewound the roll to fix the camera and now you want to advance over the exposed film to get to the unexposed part? Not a problem, just put the camera to full manual and load up the film, now cover the lens with the lens cover and go into a dark closet and start shooting and advancing until you get to the unexposed portion of the film, there you go. You know you can get 24 exposures of 35mm film for 99 cents and the 99cent store?
