Can't change f-stop to higher numbers

I have a MC Rokkor-x PF 1:1.7 on a Minolta SRT-201 body and I can't change the f-stop to more than 5.6 because a tab on the lens hangs up on on a tiny silver post on the front of the body where the lens screws on. When I take the lens off the f-stop ring moves freely.

That tiny silver post on the front of the body moves the pointers inside the body so you can see in the viewfinder where the aperture is set. It should move far enough that it lets you set 1.7 to 22. Check it to be sure the internal display matches the lens setting.
If it matches, and won't let you go all the way over, check the track for obstructions. Remove the lens and check the silver tab. It should go past the A in MINOLTA. Does the tab move all the way with another lens?
It sounds like something internal is blocking the movement of the ring or its linkage on the SRT.
I suggest a trip to the repair shop for the SRT. Garry Airapetov in Niles, IL repairs them at a very good price. He will fix it, clean, Lube, adjust it, and return it for around fifty dollars.
Look up Garry;s camera repair online to check prices and download the form you send with it.
He did a really good job with my SRT 101.

My watch keeps stopping after a few seconds of setting the time but also the part i nthe back which spins seems very loose and makes a noise


Your best bet is to contact Seiko direct as they do have a warranty for 2 years on movement. Best bet is you will have to send in for repair. I would contact them direct. Be prepared with the numbers on the back of the watch as that will ID the watch you have.

Konica lenses do not fit Minolta cameras. I think you messed something up.

Minolta MC and MD lenses worked on the older manual focus Minolta bodies. They will also work on the Phoenix and Seagull clones of the old Minolta bodies.

The Konica lens should only ever be mounted on a Konica camera.

Your 7000i is now a Minolta paperweight. You need to send your 7000i for repair or replace it.

You could also look on Ebay for another Maxxum body to use your lenses designed for the Minolta A mount. As a rule, camera lenses are not interchangeable. You can use any Maxxum lens on any Maxxum body as a rule, but Minolta changed their flash shoe after the original 7000 series. Flashes that work with your 7000i will work with any subsequent Maxxum.

I have a Minolta Rokkor-x 200mm telephoto lens with fungus


Lens fungus is really common and it's not cost effective to repair. Even if the fungus is removed then the multicoatings are permanently damaged.

The good news is that until the fungus becomes pretty severe the image quality doesn't suffer much as most photos use the lens stopped down to some extent and this means that if the centre of the lens is clear then there's nothing to block the light paths.

Unfortunately it does tend to spread, so keep affected lenses in a separate camera bag to the rest and if you can afford to do so then throw them away and replace your camera bag as it will be loaded with microscopic spores waiting to attack more lenses. Making sure that your camera and lenses are completely dry and free of condensation before storing them until next used will prevent reoccurence.

H and 3 Reading


This is a fuser (heating section) trouble code. It means that a higher than normal temperature was detected in the fuser. To reset you must press the following keys in order. Press the clear key, then interrupt, then the number 0 then interrupt. The display will change and you then enter the numbers 1 and 4 then press "print" the machine will then restart the warm up sequence. If the code reappears, your thermistor is bad and must be replaced. Only a technician can do this. Let me know if this helps. Aloha Bill Monroe
