Just got this camera from Goodwill, know very little about it.

Has a Minolta 18-70 AF lens.

Installed new battery, new compact flash card.

Powers on, auto focuses fine, but pressing shutter over and over and it simply will not release shutter. I notice little red light flashes in viewfinder when shutter is pressed.

Tried a Sony lens, same results.

Some setting wrong ?

It's been a long time since I had my old 5D.  Any chance there's no flash card in it, and it won't release the shutter without one?
