    Here's the repair manual http://www.4shared.com/office/f6CPz3...html?locale=en, but they are intended for professional service engineers who have the knowledge,experience, tools, and test equipment to effect the repair not the man in the street.

    For example using A mode in dark environment, the light meter show the shutter speed is 1/4 second. But when press the button, the shutter will last 10 seconds or more. In light enviroment, the light meter show 1/125, it won't happen.

    M mode is ok.

    You do realize that if in the S mode there isn't enough light that the camera will choose the speed and that you must set the lens to the smallest aperture.. Other possibilities are a dirty aperture resistor which is that ring behind the lens mount. Best leave it to a pro.

    I have a manual for the XD-11. Twin to the XD-7. The trouble you describe can be caused by many things. it will require some troubleshooting. I definitely do not recommend you try to fix it yourself. It is the basis for one of the Leica R series cameras. It requires a MD Minolta lens to work in the S mode. It is one of the better Minoltas; much better than the XG series or the X-700, X370 and others like them. It is too good to screw up.

    Thank you camtec. I cleaned the parallelism and focusing screen last night. And I found the malfunction disappeared. I think the dirty screen and parallelism affect the SPD. As long as the shutter speed is no more than 1s when using A mode, it is OK. Also S mode is ok.

    I have x700 and xd7. I feel xd7 is better than x700.
