I had a similar problem with my 8000i. Parts are getting scarce for these older Maxxums, but you can still get it repaired. Unless you are emotionally attached to this 7000i consider replacing it. You should be able to find another on Ebay for a decent price. You might also consider the subsequent generations which offer better AF performance. The 650xi, 700xi and 800xi are all good cameras and available on Ebay. Lighter versions like the Maxxum 70 and the XTsi are also available. The last of the film Maxxums was the single digit 7. It is generally regarded as the best of the Maxxum series, but still sells on Ebay over 150.00 typically. These subsequent models will take all your maxxum lenses and flashes. These newer models offer many other features and often less weight to carry around.

Konica lenses do not fit Minolta cameras. I think you messed something up.

Minolta MC and MD lenses worked on the older manual focus Minolta bodies. They will also work on the Phoenix and Seagull clones of the old Minolta bodies.

The Konica lens should only ever be mounted on a Konica camera.

Your 7000i is now a Minolta paperweight. You need to send your 7000i for repair or replace it.

You could also look on Ebay for another Maxxum body to use your lenses designed for the Minolta A mount. As a rule, camera lenses are not interchangeable. You can use any Maxxum lens on any Maxxum body as a rule, but Minolta changed their flash shoe after the original 7000 series. Flashes that work with your 7000i will work with any subsequent Maxxum.

Hello

Flash guns are not normally that easy to repair, and most of the guns for the Minolta 7000i are getting pretty old and parts are becoming scarce.

The first thing to check is that the batteries are good, make sure you are using rechargeable or some of the new high power AA batteries, cheap bulk buy batteries are no good for flashguns.

Second, make sure the battery contacts are nice and clean.

If you still have problems post again but with the model of the flashgun as well.

Minolta Maxxum 3200i Flash does work


Try to short out the flash and see if the flash flashes.

Remove flash from camera.
New or fresh bateries installed.
Get wire with insulation and remove both end bare to 1/4"
Turn on flash and wait until light turn green or ready.
Touch one lead to center of flash pin, touch other end to the outside(rail on the side) pin.

Flash should discharges.

Error-C1


Dirt /dust in the lens and lens gear box ( this drives zooming only ) preventing optimum functioning. Lens cannot properly come on line ( shutter and diaphragh mechanism then do not come on line ) and the camera switches off. Solution : is ether replace lens unit or dismantle lens to clean out ( from gear box and the helicoil of the lens ).

Chwck the Samsung website -technical Support team -especially if this is a recent purchase. But generally speaking this is a no repair situation.
