The above posting is correct, and the cell is a CR2016. The main batteries are removed by unscrewing the battery holder on the right grip. Most Maxxum 7000's have AAA's, some have AA's, and if you have the lithium holder, it uses a 2CR5, available at the photo shops / pharmacies.

SOURCE: The light meter is not

Your camera uses 4x AAA 1.5v alkaline manganese batteries (definitely NOT lithium, your camera doesn't respond well to rechargeables of any kind either). If you look at the side of the right hand grip you'll see a large screw. Use a coin to turn it counter clockwise a quarter turn and the battery compartment will then open.

It seems that you'll find a user manual to be of use. Click here for part one and here for part two; both are free downloads in .pdf format.

Wont turn on


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to assist you. You are having problems because you calculator won't turn on. I think you should try changing the batteries. Did you know that your calculator has two batteries powering it? Not only are the 4 AAA batteries powering it, but there is also a CR 3V Lithium Back Up battery powering it as well. First, try changing the 4 AAA batteries. If that still does not power your calculator properly, you will need to replace the lithium back up battery. You can find this at a department store or store that carries electronics. To do this, open your regular battery compartment. Above the AAA batteries is a compartment that says "BACK UP BATTERY CR1616 OR CR1620" with a picture of it. Use a small crosshead screwdriver to open the compartment. Take the old battery out and replace it with the new one. Rescrew the lithium battery compartment back on and close the AAA battery compartment. Turn on your calculator and see if that works. I hope this solution solves this.

How do you remove the 3V lithium battery (flat disc) from the Sony Handycam Video 8 model? The lens doesn't open when turned on, either on mains or battery power.


The battery is located on the side case where the LCD closes. To remove the battery just push down a little and pull out. Insert the new battery with the positive + side facing out. Replacement battery should be CR2025 or DL2025.

However, this battery is only for the date and time. It does not affect the operation of your camcorder. It sounds like you have an issue with either your lens or your main board. If the camcorder has been sitting unused for a long time, sometimes the surface mount capacitors will start leaking onto the main board. Still a good chance that it is a problem with your lens though. Your iris may be stuck in the closed position or the imager could be bad. Any of these problems would need to be repaired by an experienced technician. The only thing that you can try to do yourself is to "bump" the bottom of the camcorder (under the lens and around your lens) with the palm of your hand to see if you can get the iris to open up.

Hope this helps you.

The Instruction Book for your scale can be found here:

Sounds like no power. Check for correct battery replacement; may need to verify that your replacement batteyr is still good.

Battery Replacement

1. Use 3 volt CR2032 lithium battery (as installed).

2. Open the battery compartment on the bottom of the scale.

3. Remove the old battery from the compartment.

4. Place the new battery with the "+" sign up into the battery compartment.

5. Replace the battery compartment cover.

The light meter is not working on my Minolta Maxxum 7000. Someone told me that I need to replace the lithium battery but I can't find any place on my camera that would hold the lithium battery.

Found in a posting somewhere. The backup battery is a CR2016/2025 and is located beneath the metal plate on the body under the battery compartment. It is held in place with 6 screws.

I need a lithium battery replaced in a minolta camera, model 7000. Who do I go to??


You could go to any major superstore and ask for the CR2025 lithium battery. If you're located in the United States or Canada, you can purchase this battery from stores like CircuitCity, BestBuy, Wal-mart, Target, Radioshack and so on.

Should you need assistance replacing the battery, please take the camera along with you and one of the technical staff should be able to assist you.

Minolta maxxum 7000 35 mm camera


I had the same problem. After I replaced the lithium backup battery, everything works perfectly. It is a CR2016 watch battery and it is located behind the silover plate inside the battery compartment. Remove the 6 screws and replace the battery. Note the polarity when you remove the plate because the camera will not operate if if it is put in backwards.
