Minolta Scan Elite 5400

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I have a 5400 that I'm considering selling, but I no longer have the lock screw so I was wondering if someone knew what type of screw it is? 

Moreover, has anyone actually shipped a 5400 without locking it down and had any problems?

Yes, this was the reason that I had to throw it in the bin because service wasn’t available anymore, amd it didn’t work anymore after transportation. But I found it better for silver film than Nikon for instance.

In theory Sony is supposed to support Minolta scanners, and they did provide some film carriers to me years ago. They <might> be able to help out.

That’s what they told me at that time, but alas, a phonecall to Sony was to no avail

Thanks to you both. I've had it fixed once before by Precision Camera who does Sony's repairs in the US, though they're miserable to deal with. Maybe they'll have the screw for $100!

Unfortunately, Precision no longer works on the Minolta scanners, so back to the hunt for a lock screw.
