It usually is the shutter not firing therefore jamming the advance. Try www.flcamerarepair.com They do not charge for ests.

I have a Minolta X-370 camera that will not advance the film. Lever seems to be frozen.


The shutter is already wound and the shutter is not releasing.
You may have bad shutter release capacitors if the batteries are good.

I have a minolta x-370 film camera and the film release switch won't advance. Is there any way to fix this on my own? Or should I take it to a camera shop?


first make sure the batteries are fresh. Also if you cannot go to a camera store for battereies, DO NOT let any drugstore of grocery put 357 watch batteries in it. The 357 battery is the same size and voltage but does not have enough power to run a camera. If the battery is not the problem then it will have to sent to a qualified repair facility. This is not a user repairable problem.

The film advance lever is stuck on my minolta


Here are the most likely:
A. Lever will not move on some models if the shutter is already cocked. If the shutter is cocked, and will not release with new batteries INSERTED CORRECTLY, then the most likely is this...
Two capacitors in these Minoltas die over time. If you are handy at such things, you can buy the caps, remove top and bottom covers, remove the dead caps and solder in the new ones. Don't Panic.
You can find instructions on the web for this well known issue, and you can also opt to send it to a camera repair place. Garrys camera repair in Niles, ILL does it for about $58 incl return shipping. He will also clean, lube and adjust it for ya. Something they all need eventually.

Film Advance levar wont work. Milnolta x-700


The Minolta X-series (X-300/370, X-570, X-700) were known for this issue. Two capacitors under the top and bottom covers go bad over time. They prevent the shutter from releasing, so you cannot wind to re-**** the shutter. If you're handy at these things, you can buy the caps, remove the covers, solder in the new caps, and be fine. This issue is well known and you can find instructions on the web. Or you can send it in for repair. Garry's Camera repair in Niles,ILL will do it cheaply at $58 incl return postage. Look him up on the web.

Film Advance lever stuck


When you press on the shutter release does it "click"? A few hard taps with the end of your finger onto the shutter reelase button may unjam it if it is stuck...

Minolta 35mm X-370 stuck shutter


You are probably on the right track with the batteries. Stick some fresh ones in and the shutter should release. Your may need to use the advance lever to re-**** the shutter and drop the mirror down. You could also try removing the lens and manually pushing the mirror down to see if it stays in the down position.
