    I have a Minolta X-370 with a mirror stuck in the up position. This seems to be a common problem and one which I'd like to get resolved so I can pass the camera on to a student. I don't need another camera, however there are some I know who would be happy just to have one. I fond a discussion which talked about a capacitor or perhaps a resistor that frequently went bad with these camera, however all the links showing how to fix it or get the part are now dead. Anyone out there in apugland have any help? Bill Barber

    MDR, thank you. The first reference was the dead links I'd run into before. I did however copy and past the Panasonic part number into a goggle search and it led me back to the company where I could purchase the part. So the parts are on the way. I've got several extra coming, so if anyone needs
    the capacitor PM me. Bill Barber
