Minolta X370 film loading problem.

I can't seem to load film in this camera. The advance lever doesn't seem to work and the film is loaded properly.

Minolta XG-M as described, cannot advance film or press switch operating button. It does not depress.Also stop down button is stuck "in " position, will not release and inside mirror is closed down. Camera is new to me, took test photos, ok. Problem began with new roll of film. Please help.

I've got Nikon F65. I cannot load film. The motor which load up the film doesn't move at all. Please help!


I don't know this model but you can try this.Drop the film canister in and pull the film strip out and place on the film advance sprocket.Rotate the sprocket by hand/thumb until film is seated (1 turn). If the auto feed is working you will be OK. 2 other things ,1 of course load film in dark area, 2 check the batteries on the camera first, if they are week your film advance wont work ,Good Luck.

Put new batteries it won't power on. been sitting not used for multiple years. bought new film but it doesn't seem to load since it won't power on. minolta qt si camera


Did it sit for years with batteries in it? You may need to clean corrosion off the battery contacts. Even alkalines and rechargeables can leak.

Blinking 0 on my minolta maxxum 5 after I loaded the film. I cant take any pics.


It did not load your film. open the back, be sure you have the film pulled across the opening to the far side of the take-up spool, and close the back again. It should make noise as it winds the film, then number 1 should appear in the top window. If it does not make noise and advance film, you likely need the film advance motor replaced. Every time you close the back, it will try to advance film.
The motor itself can die and those plastic gears can break teeth. If repositioning the film does not work, your maxxum needs a trip to the repair shop.

Pro-S film back doesn't advance film properly.


There is good chance that the back needs a spring replaced. I've seen them fail many times.

How do you open the back of the camera to load the film?


normally theres a little slider on the side or a lever you have to pull up from the top of the camera (the film winder). do it in a pitch black room though if you can because there could be an old film in there and it'd be a shame to ruin it if it is really old. hope that helped!

My daughter just got a used Minolta 700-X. We are trying to load the film, but the advance lever won't advance to load the film after we put it in. Can you help?


Are the batteries good ,is the battery cap and contacts clean? Can you fire the shutter? Move select off auto and try to release the shutter. If the shutter fired off auto and will not fire on auto with good batteries. Either the shutter or flex circuit must be replaced. There are no new parts avail. for the X700.
One other item for the X700. check to see if the shutter fully traveled on the last shot.

Minolta X-300s film loading problem


Hi -- yes if you cannot advance the transport mechanism ( and so cannot load the film ) this is because shutter is not working ! This a very common problem and is due to leaking capacitor ( 220 microF ) situated on the botttom of the camera. Remove bottom cover and replace the capacitor . You should be able now to release shutter and load your film.

Loaded film wrong??


I'm assuming you're not able to shoot pics. Its my best guess that the film just isn't getting loaded properly. Next time you attempt to load film there maybe a small red mark near the take spool (bottom edge where film goes) to indicate how far you need to pull the leader forward toward take up spool. I think the film isn't out quite far enough for the camera to do its auto load thing & when you close the back it goes thru its auto loading motions but the film just isn't getting loaded. Then close back & see what happens.
