Cant see anything through viewfinder

Do you mean the viewfinder or the LCD? To turn on the LCD, press the Start/Stop button at the back (near the viewfinder).

Viewfinder is off track on the inside.

Can you give a better explanation of what you mean by off track? Do you mean it doesn't track with the zoom or is it not correctly aligned compared to the screen?
Viewfinders are never very accurate on that class of camera, you would have to dismantle to see if anything has come adrift within the viewfinder, and unless you can do it yourself it wont be economical.

Just shoot loose if using the viewfinder and use the screen if it's critical.

I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

My camera view finder shows"Check

Good day,

The CHECK DIAG appears in the view finder when the camera's automatic self diagnostic function detects an abnormality.

From here you must first perform error checking on your camera by doing the following:

Press the menu dial.
This will perform the error check on the Digital Signal Processing(DSP) and the Memory Circuits.
When no error is detected OK will appear.
If an error is detected it will be displayed next to DSP or Memory on the screen. Diag Error will also appear.
If Diag Error appears contact your Sony dealer!

What this means is that the camera is doing a routine check or has detected an abnormality with the system.

I hope it is just performing a routine check and there is nothing wrong with your camera!

Best of luck and let me know if this was useful!

Kind regards

It is at 161,000 miles and check engine light is on

You need to have computer diag. done, some parts places like autozone will do a free code reading for you, the check engine light means that your computer pick up a bad signal from one of your engine sensor's, get the code and get back with us here at FixYa so we can help you diag your trouble code.

I changed hard drives and now I can't load my programs back on

ok thanks for you prompt reply.
when you say laptop not reading HDD it allows you to see dell logo but after that there should be a msg an error msg saying no boot device been found..or just a black screen?
check BIOS if hdd is detected. if yes then it means windows is problem probably but we need to double check on this. run diags on the hdd alone use the dell diags disc. check if you get erorr code. running the diags is like this. keep tapping on F12 after seeing dell logo then insert disc when you see the options. select cd dvd rom drive then press enter then run diags custom test for hdd.

About how much would it cost to get my speedometer proffesionally repaired?

well it could be the gauge which means you may need a new instrument cluster, A couple hundred plus the diag charge. Say $300 or more easy.

Or it could be $100 for diag and $100 for maybe a speed sensor.

Or it could be $100 to $300 for diag if you have a broken wire somwhere

The viewfinder of my minolta x700 is always black

Check if the mirror is locked or stuck. If the viewfinder is dark, it means there is something wrong with the mirror.

Glitchy fields???

are you meaning the viewfinder shows heaps of space around the subject but when you see the images there is less or more space. This is due to the cheaper model of cameras, so no frame in the viewfinder
