Hello,

I have a particular issue with my Minolta XD7.

The metering preview with LEDs is not available. There is no LEDs lighting up if I press just a little bit the button. LEDs do not light until I release the shutter.

If someone could help me, I would be pleased!

Thank you

Thank you for your answer.
I haven't been clear in my explanation. The shutter release normally. The light meter works properly.
I just can't "pre push" the button to see what the light meter is saying.

You'll see in the video that there's no light until I release the shutter.

Looks like the lens is stopped down from the supplied video. The half-press action doesn't work with these as I recall because there isn't one. When the meter is switched on, it's on. Am I missing something? Or are you?

Hello,

Thank you for your answer. The half-press works on these series actually.
I probably have found the reason in the repair guide. I'm supposed to remove the mirror cage. It will be fun...

What are you calling the stop-down button?

Ok. It's in standard position. Like the other one on my second XD7.
What did you think of?
