    Have a professional look at it. Most places won't charge you for a check-up, others may charge $20 or so, and you would get that back if you accept to let them fix it.

    As for having someone email you... that feels a little like a scam to pick up email addresses. I just get a wierd feeling from this post in general.

    Switch it to manual and focus the lens manually, minolta will fire whether focussed or not in manual mode, are you pressing the shutter half way down to focus.H
