Sorry, but your camera is beyond economic repair. Fujica X-mount models were never popular and spare parts and lenses are nearly as rare as fresh **** ****. Your camera has far exceeded its original design lifespan so either a part in the shutter release assembly or the shutter assembly itself has failed, or even more likely the period of disuse simply allowed internal lubricant films to dry out and gum up the works. Professional repairs are not an option, but you can try to dismantle your camera to clean out and replace all internal lubricants. Even if your camera worked perfectly it would still have virtually no resale value so you have nothing to lose and valuable experience to gain even if you fail. The model is so scarce that you will have great difficulty finding any online repair manuals or diagrams. If your repairs fail then the good news is that there are millions of unused and unwanted 35mm SLR cameras and lenses to be had. Almost all of mine have been obtained for free just by asking family, friends and co-workers or by keeping an eye out on my local FreeCycle and Freegle groups.

When i turn on my fuji polaroid cam, there is an "E" error message. I can't take any polaroid pictures with it altho the polaroid cam is loaded with film. Please help. Thanks


First, remove the remaining films from the camera. (while your camera is switched off) Second, press on both the shutter button and the power button at the same time. (to reset) Third, reload a new set of polaroid films into the camera.
Hope it helps!

Blank roll of film


Two possible problems:

1. Film did not wind on. 2. Shutter not opening.

Easy to test with camera back open. Load a film and fire the shutter a few times each time with winding on, to see if film is winding correctly, at the same time you should be able notice if the shutters are firing, eight of them in succession makes a bit of noise.

I just bought new Lomo Fisheye2 camera. I read the instruction first before i will do anything to my camera. Once i read everything, i just follow the instruction step by step. Putting AA battery and...


If your film was TOTALLY blank then it's been bleached due to a processing error. By totally blank, I mean that there are no frame numbers or other film markings on your blank film. Otherwise, you simply have an unexposed film.

First, operate the camera with the camera back open, hold the camera up to a bright light and operate the camera as you look into the back of the lens. If you see a brief bit of light coming through as you operate the shutter then the shutter is admitting light into the camera and so you should have got some kind of an image unless you failed to correctly load the film (very common).

Unfortunately, there's no way to tell unless you try another roll of film. Once the film is loaded, turn the rewind crank gently to take up slack film and take a few pictures; each time you advance the film the rewind crank should turn a little. If it doesn't then the film has not been correctly loaded as the film leader has not engaged onto the take-up spool. If so, open the camera and re-engage the film. If it clearly has engaged, then the take-up spool is failing to rotate when the film is advanced: try taking a few shots and winding on the film with the back open. If the film is not advancing then you have a faulty Lomo. This is extremely common as it is a plastic toy camera with atrocious build quality and materials and is the FishEye is only designed for paltry ten rolls of film lifespan.

A final check for film which has not advanced through the camera is if the rewind is extremely short when the film has finished.

When i take it to develop film cames back the shutter not closing or opening ? on pic onit at all


I would check the shutter by:

1) open the film door
2) While looking into the camera, press the shutter button.

The shutter should open and then close. If the shutter doesn't open and then close, it could be stuck and my require professional help.

Depending on what model Minolta this is. Goggle camera repairing and see whats out there for your model camera. Some have a focal plane shutter which is worth repairing. The rest are not worth it. Focal plane shutters are made of rubberized cloth

Blank film


I had the same problem. I think I finally figured it out. My problem was that the Shutter was in lock mode. In the manual book there is a section called "Shutter Lock." How to get it unlocked: While pressing the drive mode button (1), turn the camer on with the function dial (2); the data panel displays the status of the shutter lock. If it says "lock", you will need to do this process again to get it unlocked.

To find out where the buttons are, you will need to look in your manual -- page 53.

Hope this corrects your problem.
