First make sure your batteries are OK , camera will not work without two 1.5 v batteries. If your camera still doesnt work this is probably because the shutter is cocked but you cannot release the shutter and that is why you cannot advance the transport mechanism. The shutter release mechanism needs repairing first. SREMEDY : take bottom cover off ( 4 screws ) and locate 220 mf 6v capacitor ( it is the only one in this part of the camera , cant miss it ). Replace the capacitor while you keep an eye on the polarity ( indicated on the casing of the capacitor ) and you camera should work fine ( dont forget camera needs two 1.5v batteries to work ! )

Most likely cause:
The Minolta X-series was notorious for bad capacitors. There were two of them that went bad. One under the baseplate and another under the top cover. Yes, both require some camera disassembly, snipping, soldering and put all back correctly-after you find the parts that went flying when you opened it, LOL.
You can find the capacitors being sold on Ebay for a few bucks and do it yerself. Or you can send it off for repair.
I suggest Garry's camera repair in Niles, IL. They will fix it, Clean, Lubricate and adjust it all for around 50 bucks. I think its about 45 plus 8 for return ship. About 2 weeks later, your camera is back in your hands, ready to go.
This is a worthwhile investment in a very good little camera. I still have the X-570. I won't part with it, LOL.
I have newer AF cameras, but I love my X-570.
