Question about Konica Minolta Maxxum 3Xi 35mm SLR Camera

3 Answers

Just got it in the mail

I just got the camera in the mail, and I don't know why it won't turn on. I think the "P" button is used to turn it on, but it won't do anything. I took the battery out and cleaned the bottom and top, but it still won't do anything. I am supposed to take pictures of my friend singing at 6pm (1 1/2 hours from now) and cannot get the camera to work. Would walmart sell new batteries?

    Please help ASAP. Now only like 1 1/2 hours total including driving time.

    I thought AA"s might fit, I guess not. Does Wal-mart sell this type of battery though?

You can download a manual for almost any equipment by Googling the make and model followed by the word Manual, then follow the appropriate link(s).

You can buy the battery from a Wal-mart. The type of battery this camera uses 6 volts 2CR5. Any brand DURACEL or ENERGIZER do the job.

I know this too late for Evelo but could help.

How do I find the security code for my Matsui VP 9606 VHS Player

Try this

Unplug from wall for 30 minutes, then plug it in again. Power it on, and then PRESS CH UP & REC/QTR BUTTONS TOGETHER on your machine ~ (haven't tried it via the remote) Should then come up as "Pin OK" on the blue screen

I don't think it will give problems after that. Should stay unless you unplug for 30 minutes, the buttons won't reset the video.

My volume up on the Harmony 880 won't work. I've heard that one person did take it apart to clean the contacts, but that didn't solve the issue. Any suggestions? I don't even care if I...

If the buttons used to work then yeah it sounds like a hardware issue. You can go ahead and take the remote apart, but I don't think you will be able to fix it, unless you are good at soldering. Cleaning the contacts alone won't help. This same thing happened to the most used buttons on my Harmony One, and I just assigned the commands to the screen, so I could continue using the remote without those buttons.
If you want to try assigning the buttons to the screen, the steps in this article by Logitech will help:
I hope this helps.

HI-- I have just purchased an old Olympus Trip MD 35mm automatic camera, with in built flash. I think have correctly loaded the fillm and batteries, but it won't turn on...It won't take pictures...

Make sure that the batteries are good. If it does not work with known good batteries then you certainly have an issue with the camera electronics. Test to see if the on/off switch is any good.

Camera sx110 won't start when start button is pushed

I'm going to ask the silliest of questions: Did you check the batteries?

I mean, I know they are there, but are they any good?
What type are they? Alkalines sometimes just don't cut it.

You need the Lithium type. They are expensive initially but they last a long time -if you don't use the flash excessively.

hi, your camera problem isn't clear but sound like shutter unit does not initializing. I don't think you can save. It is not simple job for if the shutter problem then local repair shop would charge you $65 to 135 mostly. good luck with you

Usually there is a button on the back of the camera, it is a green square with an arrow I think. Press that and then use other buttons (usually directional buttons) to scroll through your pics.
