    leo2, thanks for replying but, I didn't understand your suggestion. When I take the last shot the camera automatically "rewinds". that's what you hear at least, however, it's just making the rewind noise; the film is still visible and in the same place as it would be if there was another 1 or 2 pictures to take. So, my problem is how to manually rewind the film w/o ruining it. Can you still help?

    Thanks,

    uptowng

Rewind sound when switched from auto focus to manual focus


Probably a problem with the af/m switch so that even though switching to manual moves the connector out of the way (pulls it into the mount) the af motor continues to run. Remover the bottom and then the front cover and check the switch.

The Rewind has broken


The first thing you need to do to establish whether there's really a problem is to replace the film. It seems like after the battery change the camera simply rewound the film.

If the shots are special and you don't want the risk of ruining them, open the back of the camera in total pitch black darkness and then feel to check whether the film is rewound or not.

What does HELP on the camera mean.


On the maxxum cameras, that usually means the film transport motor is dead. It could also be a stripped gear, but more likely the motor. Time to repair or replace the camera.
Get a repair estimate before you commit to the fix. If you choose to get it repaired, they will most likely Clean, Lubricate and Adjust it as well. Balance the repair cost against the cost of another Maxxum on Ebay. For the price of a repair you can likely replace it with another equal or fancier model.

Rewind runs but film still seems stuck & won't rewind-Max 3xi


It could be that there is a broken or missing gear in the rewind. It will spin but not catch. Sometimes when film is loaded it, is not drawing the film across and missing a gear, so it seems like your taking photos and its not. If you sent it to minolta, good luck, they were bought out by Konica, and probably didnt' do a thorough analysis of it.

I have a friend who fixes cameras. Cleans them, lubricates them, and callibrates them,

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.

Minolta 700si rewind Problems


I dont get it! All I know is that almost all of film cameras rewinds when it reaches the end of film. Find the switch that turns off the autorewind function.

Auto rewind going crazy


clean the contact terminals inside the film compartment. Your camera has an abnormal autorewind switch detection.
