Rewind the film first. If the door is still locked, then procede with a plan outlined on page 121 of your camera manual(lever on the right side of the camera)here is a digital copy of it. http://ca.konicaminolta.com/support/manuals/film-cameras/film_af_slr/index.html

The Maxxum 5 manual describes the fix in the technical section at the end of the manual. It must be a comon problem. Thank you Minolta for putting in the manual excape mechanism.

Take about 4-5 pictures it self rewinds


Remove the bottom cover and check for sand/grit in the gears. Push both the rewind buttons (red rewind marks) and see if it resets. Otherwise it may be either a sensor (film movement) or circuit failure. There are no parts for these unless you can find them on Ebay. Minolta left the camera world years ago.

I own a Minolta 7000 series that was given to me. I do not have the manual for it. On the front of the camera it also says AF. My question is, how do I rewind the film and take it out of my camera. ...


If it's a Minolta Maxxum 7000, it should automatically rewind the film when finished with the roll. To manually rewind the film, open the card door on the right side of the camera and press the rewind button. Open the back cover by pressing the button in the center of the back-cover release and sliding the release downward.

You can download the manual from

Camera took pictures to # 7, then the 7 just blinks off and on, then won't do anything else. I put in new batteries, thinking that might be problem. It isn't/ what to do????


Likely its the film tranport motor. If that goes out, the camera cannot advance film. Try rewinding film. I forget if the 7000 had 1 or 2 such motors. Could also be teeth broken/worn out on the gears, but sounds like a trip to the repair shop is in order. If it will not rewind, put the camera inside a zipped dark jacket. Fold the bottom of the jacket to block light. Put your arms in the sleeves and open the camera back. Pull out the film, rewind it into the can.

The film wont advance


remove and reinsert battery.
be sure you pulled the film all the way across the back.
be sure the door latches.
be sure camera is on.
try the rewind button, it may think it has film in it, ready to rewind.
Still no good? film advance motor may be dead. If so, it needs repair. Lucky for you, the Maxxum 50 goes for cheap on Ebay. You can get another at a good price.

Film loading problem Minolta Maxxum 430SI RZ


not solution, but a suggestion, something to look for/try.
i think it is trying to tighten it and take up the slack in the spool. there might be little red dots or something like that on the inside when you open it up. you are supposed to have the film go to a certain spot before you close it. normally, the film is sticking out the right length, but you might have to pull it out extra first. you might also have to tuck the end of the film behind a roller or in front of a roller before you close it. look for really tiny diagrams inside the camera, or maybe just tiny arrows indicating which way the film is supposed to wind. good luck with your class!

What is the "light" or just red color at the bottom near the "open" the back button of my Minolta Maxxum 5 camera?


Elizabeth,

What you are describing is the film chamber lock indicator. Basically, once a film is loaded, you cannot accidentally (or intentionally!) open the camera until the film has been fully rewound. This is to prevent you ruining a film. The red indicator is just to let you know it's locked.

More details are on page 23 of the camera's manual. If you haven't got one, you can download it from here.

Film advancement


Transport mechanism problem; the drag on the film as it is being pulled by the transport motor triggers the rewind mechanism and your camera rewinds the film. Remedy : remove bottom cover and clean loose dirt and anything foreign out of the visible gear-train. Assemble and try again.
