Hello for the first time!

For my hobby i always want a Minolta camera like Dynax 5D, a defect one, that i can repair (maybe with a second defect Dynax 5D).

Its a bit late for this forum, but i have bought for 15,- a Dynax 5D with a defect, the shutter wil not open.
I managed to fully disassemble the camera en made al the required adjustments to assemble the camera, discribed in the service manual.
Now the shutter works en make's foto's that are black (write to the CF-card).

I want now to use the adjustment program, but i can't get it to work.
The usb driver wil not install, my question is now, witch Windows version wil work this program? I have Windows 7 - 64bit, this wil not work, i have tried virtualbox with Windows 2000, wil not work, also Windows XP wil not work.
I get the message that the usb "inf" file has no info over the driver.
Can someone tell me wath i do wrong?

You may need to load a driver for the specific device before the USB will work. Nowadays we expect windows to find the driver itself and install but older hardware rarely does that. Have you hunted for the right drivers?

There is a microsoft driver pack for windows 8, I notice. Maybe a search will produce one for other OS?

XP should work. Maybe the drivers are not set up correctly. Check the earlier instructions here and here.

Hi Guys,
I recentely got a Dynax 5D at a flea market.
Even if it is in proper cosmetic shape it is obviously unserviceable.
So I ressurect this thread in order to find the mentioned above 2186 adjustment software.
I googled it but without results so far.
If anyone from Dyxum can forward me a link I would be more than happy to try a repair/refurbish.
Thank you in advance for your help.
Best regards,
Francois

Hi; I also received a KM 5D off of ebay mostly for the lens knowing the camera had problems, but it is in perfect cosmetic condition. I have older computers/laptops capable of running Windows 98, but cannot find 2186 Adjustment Program either on the internet and the last discussion in 2022 leads to a website that no longer hosts the image.

My camera shows blinking shake and bars icon in the viewfinder and will do everything, (it seems) but release the shutter. There was a camera user describing using the destination part of the program to in essence 'reset' their camera and get the shutter working again.

Does anyone have a link or can send me the program privately or otherwise?

I think it should be uploaded to Archive.org personally as KM seems long gone from the camera market.

Hi, same situation as Ryablow, I am also looking for the adjustement program which seems to be gone from the web as thesybersite.com sends you to a blank page.

Would greatly appreciate if anyone still has a working link or a copy to share.
