Question about Minolta X-700 35mm SLR Camera
This could be several things. From loose/dirty cable connectors to circuit board issues. It could totally be just the age of the batteries and capacitor in the flash taking a long time to charge, making it look like it took full power. Put in new batteries or take out the old ones, rub the contacts on your jeans, and put them back in.
When you quit laughing, this actually works. It removes that thin patina that develops on the battery terminals over time.
It's also possible that the flash sensor is dead, but that's the least likely item.
