I don't do it for a living. Cork recommended a good site for the repair procedure. Not that hard to do. Most Minolta X series cameras will have the capacitor fail at some point. Even if you buy an X-700 cheap it will eventually fail. I bought both of mine new 26 years ago and they both failed within a month of each other. Same lot? Who knows. You can buy 10 of the capacitors at Micro Tools for about 7 bucks. A jewelers screw driver set and a low heat soldering iron are all that's needed. Right under the bottom plate so easy to access and find. You don't have to take apart the whole camera.
