Film won't load on Minolta 400si Maxxum Camera

I got a Minolta Maxxum 400si SLR from my dad without any instruction manual and I'm having trouble loading the film. I am putting it over the roller and it won't catch when you close the back. Should it be put under the roller? I also have a Canon EOS Rebel and it goes over the roller so I figured this one would work the same way. Any suggestions?

My daughter took the camera to her photography teacher he was able to load the film by wrapping more film around the roller. It's not as easy to load as my Canon. I thought we had put plenty of film around it already. Oh well, it's working anyway.

Cant find the batteries for the cam


It uses a 2CR5 battery, which should be available at most electronics or office-supply stores. An online source is at http://www.batteriesplus.com/product/31018-RAYRL2CR5--1-Lithium-Battery/563-0/4739-Film-Camera-Battery/56279-Minolta/Maxxum-400si.aspx

It has a Minolta A-mount lens. Any of the newer Minolta (and some Sony) lenses may be used. The older Minolta lenses for the SRT-series cannot be used.

Minolta Maxxum 400si is locked up


link to your manual, it tells us that we have a winding motor problem, I would do as you have done, so I would ensure that batterys are in great shape, the only other thing I could suggest is to try to turn the winding motor by hand in case it is just locked up. Failing that I presume the motor has died and needs replacement.

Is it possible to manually control the shutter speed, aperture, AND the focus on the Konica Minolta Maxxum 400si SLR 35mm film camera? I need to be able to manually control these features for a film class...


Yes. You have full control over the shutter speed and aperture in the Manual exposure mode, as described in the "M Mode: Manual Exposure" section in the manual.

You also have full control over the focus, as described in the "Manual Focus" section in the manual.

If you need a manual, you can download it (in two parts) from

Lens


Sorry, the mounts of Minolta manual focus lenses are different than their auto focus series. Sigma, Tokina and Tamron all make compatible zoom lenses to fit the Maxxum series cameras
