Question about Minolta Maxxum 7000 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

My Minolta 7000 camera's rewind switch won't budge.

Yeah. I know you're supposed to press the R button and push it to the left, but it isn't budging. I made sure it's on and I tried fresh batteries. Didn't work. Is it broken? How can I fix it?

I have seen this on several of these, a small bit of plastic breaks off on the top cover and jams the rewind switch assembly.

To repair this you would have to take the top cover off and then remove the rewind swtich assembly from the top cover remove the bit of plastic and hey presto. You will find after removing the bit of plastic you will have to hold the lever to keep the camera rewinding, the lever will no longer stay in place as it used to (the bit of plastic held it in place)

The battery in my Minolta Maxxum 7000 died while rewinding. I replaced the battery, but nothing happens and the rewind-button/slide is stuck. How do I reset this slide, so I can rewind my film?


Sorry to hear you're having troubles with your Minolta. First thing I would do is make sure that the batteries you put in our good and that you do have power coming out of that battery box. He didn't mention whether the batteries had corroded or if there had been any corrosion previously. The rewind button on this camera will not reset until the camera again advances. In other words it is an automatic release on the camera fires the first time after a rewind. So as an beginning answer to your question I would check the batteries again make sure that all contacts are absolutely clean and as you may have noticed the battery boxes on the Minolta do pivot. The contacts under the pivot points also have to be clean. If you checked all of these issues and you're still having problems please feel free to e-mail me at, Dave@advancedcamera.com.
Thank you good luck

How do i replace internal battery on the minolta maxxum 7000? i replaced the AAA batteries, but it still just flashes ''film'' in window.I have no manual and dont know how to get the film out.HELP!


Unscrew battery compartment on the right grip, and remove the battery holder (AAA's in most Maxxum 7000's) In the compartment you should see a silver colored metal plate, held on by 6 small phillips screws. Unscrew these, and carefully lift the plate, and move it aside (there's a tiny wire soldered inside the plate, so don't break it off).

Inside there should be a CR2016 lithium button battery. Replace it, and reassemble in reverse order.
NOTE: This probably won't fix any issues regarding the removal of the film, as the 2016 is just a memory backup battery for when the main batteries are removed.

to remove the film, install fresh main batteries, turn on the camera via the "Lock" switch and rewind the film. on the back of the camera, just behind the LCD screen, above the film door, you will see a grey button marked "R". Push and hold it, while sliding the gray slide switch immediately to the left of it to the left. The film should now rewind.

When the film is done rewinding, open the back via the sliding latch on the left side of the body with the gray button in the middle. Push the button, while sliding the latch down.

To insert film, place the cartridge in the same place and orientation as the old roll, and pull the leader over to the red dot on the bottom right of the film compartment, and close the back. it should advance to the first frame if done correctly, or blink 0 if done wrong.

Have Fun with your 7000!

Wind film?


Behind the LCD screen on the back of the camera, is a a gray button marked "R", and a gray slide switch to the immediate left of that.

Press and hold the R button, while sliding the switch to the left, this can be easily done with one thumb. the display will blink 0 and the motor will stop when rewinding is complete.

Film loading problem Minolta Maxxum 430SI RZ


not solution, but a suggestion, something to look for/try.
i think it is trying to tighten it and take up the slack in the spool. there might be little red dots or something like that on the inside when you open it up. you are supposed to have the film go to a certain spot before you close it. normally, the film is sticking out the right length, but you might have to pull it out extra first. you might also have to tuck the end of the film behind a roller or in front of a roller before you close it. look for really tiny diagrams inside the camera, or maybe just tiny arrows indicating which way the film is supposed to wind. good luck with your class!

Rewinding on a minolta 7000


i used to do this on an old Kyocera, and somehow looking at the 7000 diagram, they have the same, almost the same design.
take the camera to somewhere dark and clean (like dust free and all) perhaps your darkroom if you have one, bring a pair os scissor and a film container (for worst cases that the film is torn). clean your hands as well.

Check the bottom of the camera for a small button that disengages the motor gear (film release button). now open the film door then use a fingers to carefully pull the film evenly, you may feel like the film is being stuck, and if in case it did not move, check if you have a film release button on the bottom of the camera (usually place right below the film). as you do this feel the track of the film and check for damages that will indicate that the film has been torn because it is not loaded correctly or the motorhead malfunctioned.

now just wind the film back to the canister unless the track is torn off (note to leave the film leader out), once it is out, get the film developed right away.
now if the film track is torn cut it off then place it in the container, then have this handed to the developer and tell them that this is an open film, since it can be developed, partially though, it depends on the cut.

OR better off, you can bring your camera to the developer then tell then the film is broken inside and they will do all these for you.

good luck.
