Where do you insert a sim card into a minolta maxxum 5 camera


Cameras, especially film cameras, do not use "SIM" cards. There were some models of Minolta film cameras that used exposure cards for auto-settings but only cellular phones and devices with cellular interfaces (iPads) use SIM cards. Here's a copy of the Maxxum 5 manual if that helps.

Either the development house you took it to is not reliable, you're shooting out of date film, or in bad light.

Remember that film is designed only to look good in sunlight outside. They sell colored filters you can place on the front of your camera if you need to shoot inside without the colors looking off.

Blinking film on screen.


Sounds like the batteries went dead, and the internal lithium memory battery was already dead, causing it to forget the settings. install fresh batteries, and reset the ISO of youtr film by holding down the ISO button, and pressing the up/down buttons behind the shutter release. That should return it to normal, but you will have the same problem again whenever you are changing the batteries until you replace the lithium cell. To change the lithium cell, remove tha battery pack, and open the metal plate in the camera's battery compartment. The cell is a lithium CR 2016.

If that does not fix it, you may have a broken camera.

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.
