Camera won't take a picture

I own a Minolta QT si 35 mm camera and I went to use it and the flash,keeps making a zapping noise like it wants to take a picture.But it won't work.I changed the batteries and no change. I have the same problem.  When the flash is turned off it will take a picture, but when the flash is on it won't.  I have a canon powershot SD750

    My camera won't take a picture with the flash on. However, it will take a picture with the flash off. Someone told me to check the flash bulb. How do I do this? Do I need to send my camera in?

Here the test instrument click below;

The basic test equipment one needs to check these functions are:
Test (jumper) leads
Battery holder w/battery
Multimeter
Adjustable light source
Shutter speed tester
Combination shutter speed/curtain speed tester
Aperture tester
Flash sync tester
EV tester
Collimator (focus tester)
Most of these test devices are described in Tomosy’s first two books or in Romney’s "Revised Basic Training". What I’ve described here is my two-cents on the subject. Having any, or all, these books on your reference shelf is a good idea. Also factory service manuals can be very informative. But don’t expect step-by-step instructions from a factory manual. Or any manual for that matter. Usually you can consider yourself lucky if even the factory manual has good exploded views and a list of specs.


hope this may help;


Regards,

This is due the flash is failure on your camera as its consuming more power and does allow the camera get power you need to give for repair or you like to do DIY:

Make sure the flash bulb works,
if the flash bulb works and the problem exists then it is a camera firmware problem.
you will need to flash your memory.

    remove the flash
    use a multimeter to check if any resistance exists between the terminals.

    this will help you check if the bulb is bad or good

    It shows that there is not enough power to recharge the flash unit.
    The first course of action is to replace the lithium Ion battery with a fresh one.
    This is because they do "wear out" in as much as they cannot store maximum charge.

    If even this fails, it may be a broken connection within the camera, and this is usually uneconomic to repair.

Minolta Maxxum 400si 35mm Is this a good camera? My husband and I are thinking about buying one used for our daughter who wants to get into photography. We found what looks like a good deal but I don't...


The Miinolta 400 si SLR 35 mm is an excellent camera for a beginner as well as the seasoned photographer. It has a complete automatic mode for the point & shoot picture taker as well as manual modes if you want to favor shutter speed over aperature or aperature over shutter speed. I've had one for years and have gotten excellent results.

Did it sit for years with batteries in it? You may need to clean corrosion off the battery contacts. Even alkalines and rechargeables can leak.

Bad Minolta Maxxum lens?


Oddly enough, the camera and lens are working just fine now - or at least they appear to be. I'll shoot some more when I have good lighting and 1-hour them tomorrow for the results.
