    2 x m-76/ lr44 for most old minoltas

    if it is not an srt, which used a mercury batery originally, the rest of the minolta manual focus line lived on lr44's - this is a very common battery in all sorts of electronic things today. Take the camera with you to Radio Shack/ The Source, buy a battery that looks to fit, then the second one once fit is confirmed.

    I'm having problems with my Minolta XG-1, and I really hope someone could help me fix the problems.
    I have a Minolta XG-1, which hasn't been used for a long time. A little while ago I became interested in SLR photography so I decided to shoot some photos with it. Now, I've refreshed the batteries and I've put a new film in. I've set the settings to automatic and standard, but the film-advance lever won't go further than 30 degrees while it should go up to 130 degrees. In other words, the lever blocks and prevents me from advancing to the next photo. (Note: it's a new film and advancing from S to 1 (on the counter) is not possible).

    The required batteries are A76, but I've read that you also could use a similar battery (like L1154, AG13, LR44). At the moment I'm using L1154 batteries.

    I really hope that someone could help me because I look forward to shooting some nice pics with this nostalgic apparatus. :-P

    Did you try to fire the shutter. Maybe it was already partly wound when you started to load the film.

    Yes, I've already tried to fire the shutter. Unfortunately nothing happens...

    You could try operating the self timer. I've tried it successfully with a couple of cameras with electronic shutters. That said, I have 2 x XG-1, AG-2 and XG-m which refuse to work and the self timer trick hasn't worked

    Errr, that should have been XG-2 not AG-2.

    Here's something I did to mine last week. I get a junker from sleeze bay and the mirror was stuck up. I noticed the shutter curtains were not perpendicular to the curtain travel, askewed slightly. I pressed slightly on the first shutter curtain's edge and it sprung over. I pressed likewise and the second curtain reset and the mirror slapped down. NEW CAMERA!!!

    Don't know what your exact prob is but is need not necessarily be the blamed blown capacitor.
    Thank you.
