Question about Minolta Maxxum 5 / Dynax 5 35mm SLR Camera
Camera was working fine .went to change lens and now makes shudering noise as if searching for lens. when pressing shutter release nothing happening execept when you look in the viewe finder the anti shake is at full and does not change.when switching camera on camera makes above shuddering noise.its as if camera has lokced its self completely or maybe the anti shake has malfunctioned. it wasopped the other day.
I think the timing of the shutter winding gears has slipped a tooth or two. look at the picture in this image:
Near the motor drive coupler at the bottom you will see a blue and a white gear. Look closely at the blue gear and you will see a line on the top of it. That line needs to be pointed at the center of the white gear when the camera has been released and ready to be advanced again.
If you wish to proceed, I will tell you how to re-time the gears.

SOURCE: fungues? What does it look like
Take the lens off and look through the finder. is the mold still there? if it's not then it's in the lens. look through the lens and you will see the mold. it's usually between the lens elements and depending on the kind of mold it can be very hard to remove.
take or send your lens to a camera repair shop for an estimate before having it disassembled and cleaned.

There are actually two capacitors, one on the bottom of the camera, the other on top, just beneath the film speed selector. these are both 220uF, 4V electrolytics. they can be successfully replaced with 220V 6.3 volt capacitors (tantalums are best), provided the size is essentially the same. Just make sure you install the capacitors the same way, as incorrect polarity will cause the caps to fail. check out http://www.twid.de/x700/disas.html for detailed instructions.
