Minolta Hi-Matic 9 auto not working
Hi all, having managed to get my Minolta AL working well I decided to buy a mystery Hi-Matic 9 (as in there was no details of its functional condition), the camera was very cheap so I thought it worthy of the risk.
The camera arrived yesterday and other than a couple of simpler bits that need attention (some dust in the lens, some dust in the VF, light seals perished) the camera is in extremely good condition, the RF is bright and clear, the aperture blades move freely and appear oil free, the shutter fires at all speeds (not tested for full accuracy yet), the light meter works well (although currently with an LR44 and tin foil, Zinc Air batteries and adapter on order).
The only problem that I can't understand is that if the camera is set to full auto it always fires with the same shutter speed and aperture (F/16 and at a guess around 1/60), this is the same if the shutter is fired in a dark room or pointed at the sun. If set to Tv the aperture is always F/16, if set to Av the shutter is always around 1/60, no matter what the light meter says.
Although don't really plan to use the camera in full auto it would be nice to have a 100% functional camera. Does anybody have any suggestions on what could be the cause of an issue like this?
