Dynax 5xi not showing exposure setting in viewfinder

My Minolta Dynax 5xi is no longer showing the exposure settings in the viewfinder. The battery is new and when I press the SPOT or the FUNC buttons, the in-viewfinder menu is displayed. I suspect that the eye sensor has gone bad on the camera. Is there anyway to fix it?

In MOST of the cases it's the new battery itself. Sometimes we do not check the manufacturing date on the battery and it is to old to get exhasted in the shelf itself. Otherwise the camera is faulty.

Hello. The batteries on my Minolta Dynax SPxi just died and i wonder how to change them? Do I take them out of the little plastic case or buy a whole new "set" of them? Thanks for any replies


Here is a link to the manual if you need one: http://www.uscamera.com/downloads/maxx3xi-om.pdf

Do not open the battery pack to try and replace the batteries, the are Lithium Ion. Purchase a new battery pack for replacement. Many available on eBay.

Old pictures show up fine but new pictures show up very darkkk


two reasons for this are possible:
1) you changed the exposure compensation by mistake to minus something... - see below - change it again to +- zero:

2) you should have the ISO settings to auto:

Where do you insert a sim card into a minolta maxxum 5 camera


Cameras, especially film cameras, do not use "SIM" cards. There were some models of Minolta film cameras that used exposure cards for auto-settings but only cellular phones and devices with cellular interfaces (iPads) use SIM cards. Here's a copy of the Maxxum 5 manual if that helps.

Light meter or not on Maxxum 4


Yes, it has program, aperture priority, shutter priority and manual modes.The aperture and shutter settings should be visible on both the right hand top plate LCD panel, and also in an illuminate LED panel below the image in the viewfinder.

From memory (and I might be wrong) the Dynax 4 (Maxxum 4 in North America, Dynax 3 in Asia Pacific) light meter simply indicated a plus or minus symbol to indicate over or under exposure for the selected combination of shutter and aperture. The viewfinder display would have a steady dot to confirm confirm focus follwed by the chosen shutter speed and aperture setting.

I cannot find a link to anything other than a German manual, but the diagrams and a bit of mental application will go a long way if you don't understand German.

Note that if your camera's electronics have failed then there's nothing you can realistically do other than to replace it. Spares are not available and as a consumer level model it was never really intended to be serviced or repaired.

My Monolta Dynax 5D judders on startup, then the shake reduction display flashes then it wont take pictures or turn off. It just shows br1 in viewfinder display


It would appear from other sites and users that the anti-shake mech has failed and the cost to repair outweighs the value so I will stick with my SonyA700, sell the lenses and filters I dont need and scrap the body. Thanks for the reply.

Bracketing in Maxxum 5D


Hey arnelsartwor,
To set both exposure and flash bracketing you need to press the drive mode button, and then use the up/down arrows to select bracketing and then use the right/left arrows to highlight the drive mode option and then press the center button to select the desired drive mode. These instructions are on page 50 of your user manual. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
