Blown Capacitor Repair

The Minolta X series has a common fault where a capacitors blows which prevents the shutter from firing. 


With new batteries inserted you should be able to see the LEDs functioning in the viewfinder but the shutter won't fire. You will not be able to wind the film advance handle, make sure you do not try and force the camera to advance as this can cause further damage.


Minolta X-300 & X-300s = £25

Minolta X-700 = £45

The X-700 has two capacitors that can blow, both will be replaced in order to prevent any more issues occurring in the future. It is also recommended that the light seals and mirror bumper are replaced on either model if they haven't been already, this can be completed for an additional fee of £20.

Minolta X-300 Finger Rest

This bit of plastic sits on the top of the camera next to the shutter button and is prone to degrading and breaking. We have a stock of 3D printed parts to replace broken or missing finger rests.

This part needs to be removed if you would like the viewfinder and prism cleaned. If the original finger rest cannot be saved we will fit a new part as standard!


If you are getting in contact regarding a repair or refurbishment please indicate the camera model and what work you would like completed.
