    Just bought a used (1973) Minolta XK and after playing around with it
    the mirror stuck in the upright position and the camera is locked.
    There is a mirror lockup switch on the camera but that is not doing
    it. I've turned that on and off a few times with no effect.

    The battery tests ok with the red light going on.

    What will free the mirror?

    Any ideas would be most appreciated, I want to avoid a big repair bill
    as I hope this is a simple problem that I can fix myself.

    Overall the camera is in excellent condition and not abused.

    Please email responses as I don't check this forum regularly.
