    Just gota used (1973) Minolta XK with a stuck mirror in the upright position and the camera is locked. I can not even wind up te camera.

    The battery tests ok with the red light going on.

    What will free the mirror and unlock the camera

    Any ideas would be most appreciated.

    Overall the camera is in excellent condition and not abused.
