My Camera Won't Stay On

I have a Konica Minolta Dynax 60 Maxxum 70 35 mm camera. Every time I turn it on, it stays on, but as soon as I go and move the control dial to change the shutter speed, the camera turns off. I just put fresh batteries in it, so that's not it. What am I doing wrong?

    That was definitely it, I took it to a camera shop and I had to get a whole new camera because the business who made the camera went out of business. Thanks!

It is the circuit logic problem. or some components go wrong, e.g. commonly the capacitors.
circuit board need to be replaced, because i don't think ordinary repair shops have the technique to diagnose compoents and carry inventory of all these small SMD components.

Konica minolta maxxum 7d support

This is a common problem with the 7D. The shutter curtain will stick after several years of service. Put the camera in clean mode to get the curtain to lift, or send it to Sony to replace it. It was a design flaw by Minolta.

Camera will not stay powered up.

This is usually caused by a failure of the stop pin in the shutter/aperture charging unit in the bottom of the camera. The part is no longer available
