I've owned my 101 for two years now, but all of a sudden the light meter only moves about a quarter of the way that it should, even when on the battery check mode.

Purchased a new battery but nada, same thing.

Does anyone know where I could get this repaired? Film camera doctors seem thin on the ground these days.

I bought a Yashica YF from Mark- perfect working order. It is a rare Yashica, a rangefinder that tales Leica mount lenses.

I've read that the turnaround may be slow, but the work is top notch.

Cheers Brian I'll give him a shout, although shipping form the UK may be pricey on that one.

Between Shipping and the cost of the repair- you could get close to $200.


There are some shops in the UK that will repair Minolta film cameras, but I have no direct experience with them.

Have used Dave Boyle of the Camera Repair Workshop on many occasions for work on both Minolta MF and AF cameras.

The last jobs he did were on a Minolta SR1S and Minolta Dynax 9.

Well worth an e-mail or a telephone call.
