Hey everyone,

 

I bought a Minolta Autopak 8 K11 super 8 camera a few months ago in Mexico City. When I first shot a roll of color, everything was fine. But after a while the camera would randomly not shoot, the mechanical zoom wouldn't work, and the battery checker on the back couldn't recognize the batteries. But then the next time I picked it up, it would work fine!

 

I assume the connection from the batteries in the handle to the body of the camera is faulty somehow, but I wanted to ask here if anyone has had an issue like this with a Minolta.

 

I hope there is just dust between the connecting points but I'm also not sure what the best solution is for cleaning connections like that.

 

 

 

Anyone have any advice? 

Thanks a bunch.

 

Allegra

This: http://www.super8data.com/database/cameras_list/cameras_minolta/minolta_autopak8_k11.htm I'd search Youtube for someone shooting with one.  Maybe they've done some cleaning or repair to the camera and could guide you.
