Question about Minolta Cameras

1 Answer

Purchased a used Minolta Supreme freedom zoom elite 35mm camera. I have just loaded the film. The film advanced ok, however, now the indicator is flashing all of the options including an 88 where the picture number should be.

It sounds like the camera isn't detecting the film, but it could be a more serious problem with the hardware...whatever it is, fixing it usually involves swapping out the "brains" of the unit, if it isn't simply the film sensor mech. Even that can require extensive repair..
If it was advertised in good working order, I would return it, since it probably isn't. Communicate with the previous owner to see what can be resolved.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

How do I get the remote RC-3 control to function?


You can download a manual for this camera at NODEVICE. The kink is below. Page 3 tells how to use the remote. At this time, these are fairly old cameras so even if you have the right battery for the remote it may not work. I have the earlier version of this camera and loved it. I mourn the passing of film.

Sounds like a broken gear or linking arm. It will cost as much to fix as to replace. You now have a very nice Minolta paperweight, lol.
Those neat little film cameras are now a thing of the Ebay, LOL. Since many are dumping them for digital, they're quite available at good prices now.

If the battery is low in my Minolta freedom zoom camera, will the film be pulled back into the roll?


No. If the camera pulled the film back into the roll with a low battery, you wouldn't be able to take any pictures, rendering the film, useless. Don't worry about it, and if it REALLY bugs you, keep fresh batteries in it.

The part inside that holds the film in place and moves film to the next picture is broken in my Minolta freedom 160 - can you fix this.


it depends if a part is just poped out or actually broken... but at the end it becomes easier to buy a new camera altogether
