View Full Version : Minolta HI-MATIC 7s II question
I have experienced a very wierd problem in my small Minolta 7sII camera. Occasionally the shutter blade open quite slowly when the shutter was released. I opened the bottom cover and could not find where the problem came from. Sometimes lubricating oil will help, but the problem was not solved and it still exists. Have any one experienced such problem? Thanks a lot.
It sounds like the diaphragm and shutter may be gunked up.
After many years the grease in the focus helical can liquefy and get all over the mechanism.
Find a a good repair shop and ask about "CLA" (cleaning, lubrication and adjustment).
A camera of this age is probably due for new foam light seals, too.
The 7SII is a very nice camera and well worth repairing.
Thank you very mcuh Chris. I will have it CLAed as you suggested.
