Question about Minolta X-700 35mm SLR Camera
so i got this camera from a lady on ebay
then i put new batterys in it and every thing work
but the shutter, and the film wined
what should i do
Did you mean the shutter wouldn't open and close?
if yes, this is common to most cameras idled for years. the shutter curtain or leaves stuck, or the electronic unit that powers the shutter mulfunction.
eBay sellers are not always honest. return it if you are lucky or file a complaint. let me tell you about my experience there. i bought a used Yashica, but when it arrived, some parts went wrong enenthough i specifically asked, the condition was not as stated, and lens cap seen on pic was not included. the seller was a kind of rude manner, he just refused to admit though eBay suspended him from trading.
