Question about Minolta Photography
I purchased a camera and bought new batteries. Now nothing works and nothing shows in the window that is supposed to say, low battery, the shutter speed etc. It blinks the information but doesn't stay on there and I cannot take a picture. I don't know if I locked something. The seller told me to try to set to factory defaults. I have searched every manual and it says to turn to page 115 and there is only 65 pages. Please let me know how to do this. The seller said that it worked. I did go nuts and hit a lot of buttons before learning how to use. I probably locked it out somehow.

Did you set the camera to M90 AFTER you installed new batteries? The camera will work without batteries in the B and M90 settings, but when you install new batteries, reset the mirror by turning the dial to M90. If this doesn't correct it, I wouldn't recommend opening the camera - take it to a repair shop.

Hi Tim, I had the same problem , I took it to get it repaired & was told that it needed a new shutter solinoid , the repair cost £90 5years ago, you are probably looking at around £140+ today. mine has gone again & I am reluctant to spend that sort of money on it again. If you manage to get it repaired & there are periods of time when you wont be useing it take it out periodicly & just run the shutter a few times, it helps to stop it sticking. Good luck with whatever you decide to do . regards email@example.com

Jim, it really sounds like one of threethings. Either will require a repair shop.
1. the film sensor is not recognizing film in the film chamber, or film across the back, therefore not telling the advance motor to advance film...
2. The film advance motor itself needs replaced.
3. The rear door latch switch needs replaced.
Since everything else seems to do OK, I doubt the main computer board is bad.

I don't know if this is you first film camera or if you've owned one for years - so pardon some beginner suggestion.
If there's film in the camera, you may have reached the end of the roll. What you're describing sounds very much like this is the case. There is a window to indicate of how many exposures have been taken next to the film advance lever. Most 35mm film manufacturers offer 12, 24 and 36 exposure rolls. Check to see the number shown in the window. If at the end of the roll, you may have advanced the film so far that the number is half in the display and half blocked.
If there is film in the camera and since it will no longer allow any more exposures, you'll need to remove the film. Locate and press the R button next to the film advance lever. Unfold the crank handle from the knob on the top of the left side of the camera (as viewed from behind - in picture taking position). Twist the crank in a clockwise direction (viewed from above) to rewind the film into the film canister. As you get closer to the end of the film, more resistance will be felt until finally, the handle spins freely. This indicates that all the film has been safely rewound and stored in the canister. Next, lift the knob that the crank attached to up and away from the camera body. The back door of the camera should pop open. You can now remove the film from the camera and have prints made from it.
You can get a copy of the manual for your camera here. There is no charge to download it - but a donation is accepted by the person that is making it available.
I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

The router can be set to factory default by performing either of these two steps:
NOTE: Pressing the Reset button
on the back of the router for 30 seconds will reset your router to its
factory default settings. All of the settings of the router will then
be erased and the router's IP address will become 192.168.1.1.
Accessing the Router's Web-Based Setup Page
NOTE:To access the router's web-based setup page using Mac, click here.
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.
Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].
NOTE : For WRP400, the default IP address would be "192.168.15.1" and if you place the router behind a primary router with the IP address of "192.168.15.1", then the router will automatically assume a new default IP address, "192.168.16.1".
NOTE: If the IP address of the router has been changed, type the router's IP address in the Address bar instead.
The router's IP address can be changed by:
1. Running the router's setup CD.
2. Changing it on the router's web-based setup page.
If you forgot the router's IP address you can:
1. Check the router's IP address. For instructions, click here.
2. Press the Reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds.
NOTE: This procedure will reset your router to factory defaults. Any settings on the router will be erased. The router's IP address will be "192.168.1.1" and the password will be "admin".
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router's password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.
If you forgot the router's password you need to reset the router. For instructions, click here.
