To open the film door, you need to pull up on the rewind knob. Use the whole knob, not the flip up handle.

Minolta X-7A - the film advances, but the counter

The film counter moves without the film inside the camera.
You will need to replace the film counter assembly.

Exposed film cartridge will not eject.

Well, I'm not sure exactly what I did, but the problem is solved. I opened the case to see if I could get the film out that way, but it would have entailed totally disassembling the camera, and I didn't want to do that. I put the case back on and tried the manual rewind button, which wouldn't work before. It rewound the film this time, and I was able to eject the cartridge. So I don't know exactly what the problem was or what I did that fixed it, but the camera is working properly now!

Used camera with no manual. cannot understand how to properly use the XG-7

My condolences on your loss. I hope you have fond memories of him every time you use the camera. The owner's manual can be downloaded at  It takes S-76 silver batteries which are pretty easy to find. Check Radio Shack or a similar store. You can use any MD mount lenses. Minolta's lens brand is Rokkor, but you may find others with a compatible mount too. Film loading, advance & rewind are manual. So is film speed setting. There's a semi-auto exposure mode "A" to help simplify shooting while you learn the rest. The manual is pretty good & has lots of pics of the various dials. Much easier reading than many current ones. Get a few rolls of cheap film & have fun!

The slide transport goes in about 1 inch and then ejects itself.

Not sure if this will fix it, but there are a bunch of metal tabs on each rail (that the holder goes into) that (I believe) are contacts that help the scanner to determine where the holder is. They get bent very easily. If they are, bend them back carefully.

You sort of have to look "up" into the scanner with a flashlight to see them on each side.
