Minolta X-9 operation?

  1. Congratulations on fixing your camera. I know next to nothing about electronics, but have used manual focus Minolta cameras for many years, and with the later ones that had some electronics, this capacitor issue was very common. I wish I had been able to fix mine myself, because I spend a good deal of money getting them fixed. I can't imagine how many of them went to the landfill just because this capacitor had given up the ghost. And for what it's worth, the X-9/X-300 is just about the most basic and plasticy of the manual focus Minolta lot. For a real treat, get yourself an XD-7/XD-11, or an XE series camera. Those are really nice to use, and cheap these days. If you can find an XD series camera with a faulty capacitor, you can probably get it for free. ;-)
