Question about Cameras

Open Question

It has a Minolta 'A' right on top of it. It's made from all stainless steel with a maual winder on the Right Top and another knob to get the film started on the other side of the top. Right in the CENTER FRONT of it there is a black plastic roller knob that has numbers that go from B then there is a screw and then it has white numbers that go from 1 through 300. Right behind that black roller knob it has Minolta 'A' etched into the metal. Right behind that on the top is a place for the flash attachment to slide into 2 grooved brackets about 1/8 of an inch wide with a button or stud in the center. The front of the camera has a switch on the RIGHT side of the lense if you're holding the camera with an M at the top and an X at the bottom. Then it is raised a little bit with a series of numbers on a plate in front of the switch that has numbers with a mark right at each one and the numbers range from 11, 5.6 , 3.5 then it has like a little arrowhead then it has an R in red ink (or paint) with 5.6 right next to the R then it has 11 again. The front outside ring adjustment has OPTIER MX with a serrated tab sticking forward. Around the outside ring with the serrated tab it has the numbers in feet and they go in sequence 2.7 , 3.33 , 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 , 10 , 15 (with a circle around it, then 30 and then the infinity sign. The inside ring closest to the lense it has the words ROKKOR 3.5/45 THEN 1201049, then it has CHIYOKO. The top and the front of the camera around all of the adjustments is Stainless Steel colored but the rounded sides and back are a rough BLACK color. The Bottom has a dial you have to turn with your fingernail that has numbers that range from 0 then 5 little marks and a 5 then five little marks then 10 and five little marks then 15 and so on up to 35. You can just keep turning it round and round without anything unscrewing even though it has a screw slot in the center. There is another button on the bottom that doesn't appear to do anything but it is spring loaded and always comes back to dead center if you press on it. The other side of the bottom has what looks to be a screw hole so you can mount the camera on some kind of stand. It has a very nice brown leather case that snaps around the entire camera too. If you have any idea where I can get some information on this camera and what it's worth please let me know.

How do you load it


To open back cover lift knob on top of camera ( this knob has a small arm that unfolds - used in rewinding).
Once open you will see which side is the film side ( under this knob) and the take up side. On the film side raise the knob again in order to insert film case, the top of this should flip over later used to rewind film. with film trail out toward back of camera. Now push the knob down. Film should only be loaded one way so the knob can be lowered into film canister. Lower knob and Film canister is now secure.
Next thread film leader onto take up spool. Some times these have a slot , but most Just have the teeth that fit the film edge.thread the film into slot then unto teeth. You will need to use film advance arm (There should be an arm on the top opposite side of film knob) you would move that would advance film.
as you move this arm ( with cover open ) film holes should engage the teeth on bottom and top. ( if you can't advance after 1 or 2 advance arm swings) press take picture button ( releases springs).
continue until film is captured top and bottom. Use the film spool knob gently wind film back into canniester until snug don't over wind. Close cover, take a picture with lens cap on, repeat that. As you wind ,the film cartridge knob should rotate.
You are not wasting pictures film was designed for this waste.
you should know how many photos were on film 12/24/36 pictures.
you may have a knob to set to that number.
When your ready to remove film ,push silver button on bottom and use winder handle ,rotating until free and easy. Open cover mention earlier.
wow can't believe I remembered all that and hope that helps.

Help with minolta x-300s, i cant seem to move the film winder


Well, here's the most likely things going on:

1. dead battery. Your X-300 has an electronic shutter that needs battery power to work. Try fresh batteries and check the battery contact wires for corrosion.

2. End of roll. If you have film in it, try the silver button on the bottom. rewind film and try another roll of film. Before you put in the new film, try the advance, click, advance, click thing.

3. Not all rolls of film are perfect. Some are shorter than they should be, some hang up in the canister.

4. The Minolta X-series were well known to have a problem. Two cheap capacitors on the later models would die, locking up the camera. One is under the top plate and the other under the bottom plate. These caps need to be replaced. I suggest you send it to a repair shop for that. Check prices. Garry's camera repair in Niles, IL does a very economical repair on these. It runs about $50 and $8 for return ship. He will also Clean, Lubricate and adjust it.

You could also buy another 300/370 on Ebay, as they're inexpensive these days.

Best of luck. Hope its just the film or batteries. You might also consider joining the Yahoo Minolta groups.

The bulb on top of my Melitta Java perk Model #MEP-10 Percolator is broken and I would like to purchase another if I can.


Go to the hardware store and buy a porcelain or stainless steel cabinet knob that will fit over the hole in the percolator top. Discard the screw that comes with the knob and replace it with a shorter (maybe 3/8") stainless steel version (shorter because the top of the percolator is a lot thinner than a cabinet). Then, buy a couple of neoprene washers and a stainless steel fender washer. Prepare the percolator top by using a hammer and a small piece of wood or something to flatten out the metal around where the old percolator top used to fit. Now you can start putting things together--slip the fender washer over the screw, then one of the neoprene washers and put it through the hole in the percolator top from the inside. Then slip the other neoprene washer over the protruding screw and screw the cabinet knob down, sandwiching the whole assembly nice and tight. Finally, tape a dollar to the old plastic percolator top and throw it away so you can say you've thrown away something.

Trying to get the film removed and new film put in


to rewind the film back into the tin look underneath the camera you will see a button, press this, it will disengage the winding mechanism, looking on top of the camera to the left you see a knob. flip out the handle and start to turn this clockwise until you hear a click and the turning become a little easier. if it is hard to turn, ensure the button undeneath is still pushed in. once the film is wound back, lift this knob this should open the back door and of the camera and release the spent film can.

take your new film and take it out if its platic container. place the old film in the same container for safe keeping til it goes to processing.

place the new film into the camera on the left side with the brown tab of the film laying over the shutter window in the middle.
press in the winder knob to help hold the film container in place.
pull out the end of the film and guide it over the two wheels with teeth ensureing that the teeth fit into the perferation holes in the film.
slide the film across the camera to the roller on the oposite side. slightly wind the camera on help guide the film tab into the slot
once in the slot slowly wind the camera on ensuring that the film is running smoothly over the shutter gate.
now close the back of the camera which should click to lock.
now wind on the film until the winder leaver stops
check the ASA or IOS rating of your film from the box it came in.
and ensure this setting is correct on the setting wheel on the right.
if your camera has automatic film recognition then this is not necessary.
you are now ready to start taking pictures again.
