Re: Minolta Riva Zoom 90 camera

Open battery chamber and look to see if batteries have leaked into the camera. If you do not see signs of battery acid inside then the fault might be caused by shutter flexiboard being faulty. In either case it is not economical to repair : you will be quoted $ 200 to sort this out ( new shutter flexiboard costs $100 ! ).

I need the brand new price for a minolta riva zoom 70 af please

These have not been sold new for a while (in the UK).

Do you mean the price of an equivalent camera, or the price (some years ago) when you could buy it new, and in which part of the world.

You can get a lot of them "as new" - from £5 - £20 (inc shipping) on eBay .. for example ....

Local charity shops int the UK would have a price tag of £1 - £5 on it nowadays ,and not expect it to sell. Film cameras have died a death here, and this minolta was never a top rated model.

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.

My minolta sightseen camera wont take pictures?

The blinking zero would indicate that the film has not loaded but the cartridge is in place. The camera won't do anything when this occurs. Try opening the film door and load the roll again
