Two possibilities 1) film was not properly loaded ( and so what you took to the lab was a blank , unexposed film ) or 2) shutter is not opening . To check set camera to slow speed like 8 th of a second open back and see if you get proper opening/closing of shutter. If not then camera will have to go in. Cost ? not more than $100.

Re: Konica Minolta X-370 Wont develop

Two possibilities : 1 ) your film was not properly loaded into the pick up spool and hence it was transported or exposed ; what you took to the lab was unexposed film. 2) the shutter is not opening and again no exposure takes place. To check this open back , set to slow speed like 8th of a second, and see if the shutter opens and closes properly. If the shutter does not open then it will have to go in, unfortunately. Cost ? If it is just an adjustment ( as I suspect is the case ) you should not pay more than $ 100.

How can i get it to take pictures

It sounds like the film sensor has gone bad. You can check and see if any local repair shops still service these, as most don't due to lack of parts.

Minolta X-7A - the film advances, but the counter

The film counter moves without the film inside the camera.
You will need to replace the film counter assembly.

The zero (0) keeps flashing on my camera, it says 200 at the top which i think is the speed of the film but it wont let me take a picture. the camera is minolta 505si super DYNAX, help please!!


This is a bit late but it might help!
The manual says this:
If the film is loaded incorrectly, 0 will blink in the frame counter and the shutter will remain locked.
Open the back cover and repeat the film loading steps.

Good luck.

My x 370 wont transfer pictures onto the film? The camera looks like it's in good condition. The roles come out blank!

Film cameras directly expose film to light to produce an image: they do not "transfer pictures onto the film", but your phrase is a big clue as it suggests you've only used digital cameras in the past and so may have made a very simple mistake with film loading.

If the film is blank as in transparent, then the film has not been exposed. If it's completely dark then it's been over exposed.

I suspect you mean that the film is unexposed as it's by far the most common fault: cameras like the X-370 have completely manual film loading; the film has to be manually engaged onto the take-up sprockets before closing the back of the camera. After that, correct loading is confirmed by watching to ensure that the rewind crank (top left knob as viewed from rear) rotates every time the film winding lever is used. Note that the frame counter will advance even if the film isn't correctly loaded. Once the film is used up, the winding lever won't operate and the film must be rewound back into the cassette before opening the back of the camera. To do this, you press the recessed button on the underside of the camera and use the rewind crank to rewind the film until you can feel no more resistance at all.

You'll find full instructions on the Norman Butkus website where he's provided a downloadable .pdf manual for your camera for free download.

Hopefully this has solved your problem; if so all I ask in return is for you to rate my answer. If it hasn't, then please add a comment and I'll try to offer other solutions to your problem.

When film is developed pictures are half solid black

If you are using a flash, than you shutter speed is too high for the shutter to fully open. if you are in daylight than your shutter is malfunctioning and needs repair

My pics come out half black when I use the X-370 flash


this happens when the shutter speed is not correct. set the speed to 1/60 sec.
if the X-370 flash is new it may not be compatible with your camera. with the flash turned on it should set the shutter speed automatically to either 1/60sec or 1/125sec. looking in the finder the shutter speed should not change to various amounts of light. if the shutter speed changes with the flash turned on it is not dedicated to your camera.

Minolta X-370 wont shoot

Shutter release capacitor needs replacing and is easy to replace on these models. Remove bottom cover ( 4 screws ) and locate the small 6v 220 microF capacitor and replace making sure you get the polarity right. ( these capacitors have life span of 10 years and then the rubber iside perishes and they leak.)
