    Hi guys,
    have just been given my first slr to get used to before takingthe plunge with a dslr. It is a minolta x300s but I'm having problems with it:

    I can't load a reel of film as the advance lever will not move past the 30 deg mark to allow thumb access, I've tried releasing the shutter but that doesn't seen to release. A friend recomended pushing the rewind button under the camera but again, no joy.
    Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening? Is it buggered or a simple fix?

    Cheers in advance,
    Phil:confused:
