I've been there. If you send it to get fixed it'll cost you a couple hundred bucks. The problem is a diode right at the bottom of the camera. The last time this happened to me I took it over to my local TV repair place. Showed them which one to change. $5 was all it cost. This is a common one problems with Minoltas.

I just had a second thought. Is the battery OK? Does the meter work? That might be it.

I've found these guys to be great when I'm working on my antique cameras. Give them a shout.
