    Hi guys, I have a minolta x300s and the advance lever will not move on to allow loading of film. I assumed there was a problem with the mech inside and so carefully removed the base plate. It appears the problem is the shutter release, I can release it manually with a screw driver to the catch but it won't release using the shutter button. Anyone had a similar problem, is it repairable? Is it expensive to do?

    Many thanks,
