Question about Minolta Maxxum 400si 35mm SLR Camera
I have a 10 year old Maxxum 450si which has always worked well. I have used the camera in the past week and this morning went to use it when I found the image dark as I viewed through the view finder (apeture not opened?). The camera attempts to focus, but I cannot get the camera to take a photo. I have removed the lense and replaced it. I have removed the battery and then reinserted it. I did notice that the preset ring is at 4 o-clock which another post suggested is wrong. Could this be the problem? If so, how do I fix it?
The aperture mechanism needs repair - though most parts are no longer available because Sony purchased Minolta, this is a problem that can be repaired by a competent independent repair shop.
