Question about Minolta Maxxum 400si 35mm SLR Camera
When I look thru the lens it is shaded, can't see clearly thru it. it is like the shutter didn't reopen entirely. the last picture I took, it is like it stayed shut. also, my external flash works and the camera works but not together. when I use it, I can't even try to focus the camera.
Look in the back where the film goes in. Are all the shutter blades flat and in place, or are they wrinkled or is one or two blades bent or out of place preventing the shutter from functioning fully? Put the camera in M focus and M exposure at about 15th, Fire the camera several times. If the shutter looks and works ok then take the lens off and look at the mirror. Fire the camera a few times. Doe the mirror go all the way up to the top and come back down, all the way? If so then the shutter would appear to work fine and the lens may e the problem. If the shutter or mirror box do not work correctly they will have to be repaired by a qualified technician.
