Shutter frozen



i just bought a used X-370n and the shutter seemed to be froze, i checked out a few sites and found out that there might be a blown capasitor, a common problem i see, with this model. i'm looking to see where i need to go to fix this prob without dumping a lot of $$. any suggestions?


Hi Sean,

I really would send the camera to Minolta directly. If you send it to a dealer, he will do nothing else then also to send it to Minolta and charge you a premium for his work.

Normally Minolta should give you for free an cost-estimate and then it is up to you to decide whether to repair it or not.

Have you been able to fix it or did you not send it to Minolta?



Did you make sure there is a new battery ? did you make shure it ist the right battery ?

It did happen to me, i thought the camera was broke, but the new battery I did put in was not working.

good luck
