Ray, I am no expert but, I will try and help. If you put batteries in and check the wires and find that you have power at the meter and it still is not working, then chances are the meter itself is bad. If you have power to the metering cell but no power to the meter itself and, there is continuity between the metering cell and the meter itself, then chances are the cell is bad. I have ran into both scenarios on several different models of camera including Konica Auto S2 and different Canonettes but, have never worked on a Minolta RF. The basics should be the same. Hope this helps.
