Generally when a camera refuses to take the photo is because you are operating beyond its expected lighting settings. If you are on automatic, it will just flash a light at you, or give you some indication it is beyond the limits of that setting. Try manual, or some other setting like landscape, or backlight. Generally this will happen on automatic settings. 
Film? Try the f16 rule. In broad daylight, the rule is use f-16 and a shutter speed that matches your film's asa. So 100 ASA film? Shoot the sunset at 100th at f-16. Darker, open it up two or three stops. f-11, 8, or 5.6. 
Bottom line, make sure you are on manual. The problem is likely an automatic exposure.

Wht is my film transport signal not visable on Minolta Dynax 404si?


If it will not work on any roll of film and you are sure the film leader loaded correctly and the film advances properly then the spring on the indicator or the indicator itself is defective. Only option is to try and open it yourself if you're daring or send it in for repair.

I have a minolta 404si. it recently took a fall and i dont no whats rong. there is no light coming threw the eye piece. the light meater keeps activating the flash. if i take the lense off there is light...


I suspect your lens is forcing the mirror up when it's mounted on the camera. This would cause a dark viewfinder and as the metering system is also in there then no light means that the camera thinks that it's in total darkness and activates the flash.

Try another lens. If the problem continues then the camera body is broken, if not then it's the lens. Most likely to be the lens though.

Used Minolta lenses are readily available at reasonable cost (or free if you ask on FreeCycle) so unless your lens problem is obvious and easy to fix then just replace it as spares are mainly non-available and labour charges are high. If you want a new lens then Sony retained the same lens mount when they took over Konica Minolta.
