Question about Minolta Maxxum 7000 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Display Problems... I've never had any problems with the display screen before & now all of a sudden the numbers are half gone [like a broken digital clock]. I've tried changing the batteries, but nothing seems to be working. It's very difficult to read my settings. Also, when I look through the viewfinder, the light meter numbers are like that too.

When camera turned on it just reads HELP

Any of the problems listed below with give off a "Help" message on the external display-you can get this from a bad film transport system, failed aperture base plate mechanism, dropped focus screen, bent mirror, and a whole slew of electronic problems from blown boards to bad wiring connections.
Apparently there is no Minolta Service Centre to buy spare parts.

What does FEE mean? The camera won't take a picture and I see that in the display of my Nikon N90S

FEE error message displayed on SLR camera LCD Description If the cameras LCD screen displays "FEE" in the area where the aperture is normally displayed, please ensure that the lens is attached to the camera correctly. This error message will appear if the lens is not attached correctly to the camera or if you are not using a CPU lens such as the Nikon AF or Nikkor P lenses. Alternatively, if the lens has an aperture ring, it may not be set to f22 (or the highest aperture number on the aperture ring - normally marked in orange). Select the aperture number marked in orange on the lens and lock it using the aperture locking switch to prevent this occurring again.


The FEE error message

Set to F22, or the highest aperture number - normally marked in orange. Note the locking switch.
If the above did not resolve the problem and you still experence the the error display FEE, please contact your local Nikon office. Before doing so please also check the following.


1157d.gif That the EE servo coupling highlighted above on the lenses has not been broken. That the F-min switch highlighted above on the camera body has not been broken. If either of the two items above are broken please contact your local Nikon service center.

I have a Nikon N60 35mm camera its displaying F3 3 in the viewfinder what does it mean and how do I fix it

It's not clear from your question that this is actually a problem as you haven't said what the display is doing to cause you problems actually using the camera.

What is certain is that it's supposed to display a F number in the viewfinder. Along the bottom of the display will be a number (shutter speed), an F number (aperture setting, when in auto or shutter priority modes this may not exactly match what's set on the lens), and moving bar + - scale too indicate over (+) or under (-) exposure.

If you really don't know what the F number is nor what it's for then you need to read both a good photography for beginners guide and also the camera manual. Explaining the relationship between shutter speeds, aperture settings and film speeds in any truly meaningful way here is beyond the limited scope of FixYa as whole books are devoted to the subject, but you only need a few pages and pictures from the available publications to get a good idea.

You can download a free user guide for your camera at the address below. It's for a Nikon F60, but it's identical to the your camera which was called the N60 in North America to distinguish it from unofficial imports.

I hope that I've helped and if so ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer. If I haven't helped then please add a comment to explain more about your problem and I'll try to give further assistance. Please note that I'm in the UK and will be unavailable for most of Sunday so please allow for the time difference and scheduling whilst awaiting any further replies from me.

Constant "busy" error and no display screen even if you push "menu"



I can help you fix the BUSY Error or Error 99 of your Canon EOS 1000D.

Installation of this Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update will solve these problems:
  1. Some cameras may exhibit a phenomenon in which the LCD monitor does not display, the shutter does not release, and the BUSY indication remains lit in the viewfinder.
  2. The message, "Err 99 Shooting is not possible. Turn the power switch to<OFF> and <ON> again or re-install the battery", appears on the camera's LCD monitor, and after the above operation is carried out,the LCD monitor displays in a language that is different from the actual language setting.
See the firmware instructions and download the firmware upgrade by following these Fixya Tips :

  1. Follow this link to download a pdf version of the firmware installation instruction guide.
  2. Follow this link to download the Windows Version of the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update.
  3. Follow this link to download the MAC version of the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update.
  4. Follow this link to download the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D Instruction Manual.

I hope that helps.

Can't download photos


I don't have this exact same Canon camera, but with my model if the back screen is lit the camera can't communicate with the computer. If you half-press the shutter, it turns off the back display, and then they can communicate and transfer data. Give that a try and let me know if it fixes your problem. If that doesn't fix your problem, please don't rate my answer until I give you some additional things to try. Thanks!

Shutter display problems

I hope if the camera set for auto then there would be no speed display
If the batteries are good then the LCD panel should be given attention
