Question about Minolta Maxxum STsi QD 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Can't switch to autofocus.

I have a Maxxum Stsi. It was working fine yesterday, but now it's stuck on manual focus. "M FOCUS" appears in the window and pressing the AF/M button will not change it. Any suggestions before I send it out for service??

The autofocus motor is probably worn-out -- a common problem. Most shops can rebuild the brushes in the motor, since parts are no longer available from Minolta.

Not sure if this will help, but according to the manual, to use manual focus, push the button down until the red portion is visible, and turn the manual focus control dial until the image appears in focus in the viewfinder. Then, take the photo as normal. To return to autofocus, just return the switch to its normal position.

Your 100mm lens autofocus not working.it may be due to autofocus flex cable inside the lens damaged. It is replaceable part. You may have to contact service technician. However when you switch to manual mode it should focus & click. Try it.

Is it possible to manually control the focus on this camera? (Konica Minolta Maxxum 400si SLR 35mm Film Camera) I need to be able to manually control the focus, apeture, and shutter speed for a film...

The description of the manual focus is available in part 2 of the manual, page 40. The manual is available as a PDF here: http://ca.konicaminolta.com/support/manuals/film-cameras/film_af_slr/index.html#si_series . It is the seventh camera in the SI series in the list.

To manually focus the lens, press the focus-mode button on the front of the camera (bottom left when you are behind the camera) until M. focus appears in the data panel. If you have an AF lens, turn the focusing ring until the subject appears sharp. If you have an xi-Series or AF Power Zoom lens, pull and turn the lens control ring.

The focus indicator will light when the subject is in focus. To return to autofocus mode, press the focus-mode button again. The camera will also return to the autofocus mode if you press the program reset button.

I hope this helps.

(in manual focus, you can take a picture even if the subject in the focus frame is not in focus. Often it means you need to take multiple pictures to get a good shot of the subject. The advantage is that you can get some interesting shots.)

Tamron 75-300mm lense quit focusing??

Check you have not switched camera t manual focus...if it's on auto then try changing various focal lengths to see if it kicks in....if it does intermittently you may have a cracked flex cable...this eventually happens with long throw lens because the cable gets weaken as it stretches and closes.It is also possible the ribbon became dislodged at the Circuit board just behind the mount.

Can't get the camera to auto focus in dim light

you can maybe set the camera to manual focus, or override the autofocus so that you can take the picture.

Nikon d40 autofocus

Look on the left side of the lens. Make sure the button is on A for auto focus and not M for manual. OR not stuck in the middle. Hopefully that will solve the problem.
