Question about Minolta Maxxum 7000 35mm SLR Camera
While I was taking pictures, near the end of my film, the camera stopped allowing me to snap any shots. The screen is blank regardless if it's on or off, except that the film is flashing. My first instinct was that the batteries were dead, but I just replaced them, and it's still not working. I've pressed the P button above the on/off switch, and it resets it for a second, while making a mechanical rewinding sound.
Help me please. How do I get my camera back up and running?
Sounds like the batteries went dead, and the internal lithium memory battery was already dead, causing it to forget the settings. install fresh batteries, and reset the ISO of youtr film by holding down the ISO button, and pressing the up/down buttons behind the shutter release. That should return it to normal, but you will have the same problem again whenever you are changing the batteries until you replace the lithium cell. To change the lithium cell, remove tha battery pack, and open the metal plate in the camera's battery compartment. The cell is a lithium CR 2016.
If that does not fix it, you may have a broken camera.
