When I push the button to take a photo, the camera

I have a Minolta Explorer Freedom Zoom EX camera. It takes wonderful pictures, but now when I push the button to take a photo, the camera makes a "clunk" sound. The flash does not fire and the film does not advance.I am assuming that the camera is dead. What do you think?

Sounds like a broken gear or linking arm. It will cost as much to fix as to replace. You now have a very nice Minolta paperweight, lol.
Those neat little film cameras are now a thing of the Ebay, LOL. Since many are dumping them for digital, they're quite available at good prices now.

How do I get the remote RC-3 control to function?


You can download a manual for this camera at NODEVICE. The kink is below. Page 3 tells how to use the remote. At this time, these are fairly old cameras so even if you have the right battery for the remote it may not work. I have the earlier version of this camera and loved it. I mourn the passing of film.

If the battery is low in my Minolta freedom zoom camera, will the film be pulled back into the roll?


No. If the camera pulled the film back into the roll with a low battery, you wouldn't be able to take any pictures, rendering the film, useless. Don't worry about it, and if it REALLY bugs you, keep fresh batteries in it.

Panoramic pictures??


A panoramic photo on 35mm film is just cutting off the top and bottom. even if you can't set the camera that way, you can ask your local photo store to print any shot that way for you. Usually 2x the price of 4x6.
