First I must warn you repairing cameras takes a bit of skill, steady hands and good eye sight. You will also need to have a good desk and desk lamp as the parts are tiny and can easily get damaged or lost. If you loose or break a part you may have a hard time replacing it so take you time and don't force things. OK, so you want to take a crack at it. Here's the Minolta SRT 101 repair manual which is the same basic camera as yours: [http://acuravigorclub.com/Minolta/SRT-101ServiceManual.pdf|SRT 101 repair manual].
