Minolta 7000 shutter won't go off

Film Discussion and Q & A - www.thephotoforum.com
Hi!

I tried to google it but I couldn't find exactly what I'm looking for (or maybe I just don't know what I'm looking for!) and maybe someone here could help.

I have a Minolta 7000 which as been with me and working great for 2 years. This week I was taking a photo (about the 4th in the film roll), the shutter closed, didn't open and the screen went off. I don't know what I did to it. But then the next day when I picked it up again the shutter was open, it would focus, screen was working and the aperture and speed would come up when pressing the button. I did press the button to test and again it's like the power went off.

Now I've read it could be battery or capacitor. What do you think and what do I do?

If it looks like I don't understand much about film cameras, it's because I don't so anything you could tell me about my Minolta I would be so grateful!

Thank you!
