    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.

    Well, you can buy five at that price anyway:
