Sounds like liquid damage. take the bottom cover off and see if there is any rust or corrosion. if all is ok and the camera is working, don't worry about it. it has no effect on print quality.
now if you find rust or corrosion your camera is about to become a fancy paper weight. not repairable economically.

Does the minolta xg-a have to have batteries to use the view finder? if so, what kind of batteries does it take


The XG-A requires batteries, not just for the viewfinder, but also for the shutter. It uses two alkaline A-76 (or equivalent) or two silver-oxide EPX-76 (or equivalent).

If you need an owner's manual, you can download a PDF version from http://www.butkus.org/chinon/minolta.htm

I cannot wind the camera


yellokp13,

if the led's light in the finder you have a mechanical problem.
if the led's don't light in the finder then turn the shutter select knob left & right around 5 times do this also to the off / on switch. remove batteries and clean the contacts with pencil eraser.
if the leds still don't light then you have a flex circuit problem.

i am assuming there is no film in the camera.
if you decide to have the camera repaired get an estimate first as there are no new parts available.

If everything lights in the camera when you test it ,it means the battery is alright,try this trick"Rotate the film advance connection at the bottom of your camera using a nickle (not the battery compartment) the one directly at the bottom of the shutter and should click if there's not you have some bigger problem.Good luck.

Minolta XG-1 Film Camera View Finder has Door Seal Foam stuck in it.


jrbw123,

the top cover must be removed and the flex circuit on top of the prism must also be removed. then remove the prism to access the fresnel lens. the lens is extremely fragile and very difficult to clean.i would try to replace it with a good used one if possible. unless your a intricate instrument repair person i would let a camera repair person do this.

Mirror problems


Could be 1 of two things: 1. Mirror linkage failed. 2. Something is holding the mirror; sticky foam or the lubrication has dried out. Remove the lens, use slow shutter speed to release the shutter. While mirror is stuck in the up position, very gently pull down on the front edge of the mirror. If it frees up immediately it was stuck on the foam. Might be able to see a mark on edge of mirror from the foam. Hope this helps.
