SOURCE: Minolta Maxxum 7000 35mm SLR Camera not working

Dear Minolta friends,
I have recently bought a second hand Maxxum 7000 and a AF lens, but found the body not ocntrolling the aperture while shooting. I know 7000 has someting special. Is my problem is due to lens and body compatibility or actually the malfunction of the body. I am sure the AF lens is ok since i have tried it working with another minolta af body.
Can give me an advice?

The lithium button cell is only a memory backup for when the main power pack is off the camera. It allows the camera to retain the number of exposures, asa setting, etc. You problem may lie in the battery holder. The BH70 was prone to corrosion at the contacts and the pivot points where the part that holds the batteries to the side plate with the retaining screw. It is possible to remove the batteries from the holder, then carefully separate the two pieces by popping one end enough to allow the pivot pin to slide past the notch. Use a hard eraser to clean all of the metal points (pivot contacts and the springs and plate in the 4 cell holder.

SOURCE: Shutter Blades out on Minolta Maxxum 7000

It is possible to fit them back since they are flexible. It does require a gentle touch, with a lot of patience. I use angled tweezers for this task.

Replacement parts are no longer available. Used cameras can be found on ebay and the like.

It takes either: Energizer 475 or Duracell 245........if camera still will not fire, your camera has a problem.

The camera will not take the picture

Need more info. What is the camera not doing? Does the auto focus work? Are the batteries good. Are the shutter blades in place? Sometimes when loading film a person will push down to smooth film and the force will go through the film and pop the shutter blades out of position. Remove the lens and gently lift the mirror with your finger nail. The blades should lie flat.

How to reset the camera

Try a manual rewind, and remove batteries and let it set for awhile to allow charges to seep out of capacitors. Film cameras usually don't have resets. Check batteries and battery contacts

Fix shutter

Your lens is not communicating with your camera, which could be a result of unclean electrical contacts on the lens. Just wipe the electrical contacts that you see on the lens with a dry cloth to remove any residues on them and try again. If this doesn't work, you may need to contact service personnel.

I just put in a new roll of film and I took 3 pictures and then the screen at the top said "ERR" and the film retracted itself....what happened?!

Hi, On Minolta's ERR means that the film hasn't been loaded in the camera properly so you'll want to reload the film.

Need battery chamber lock for minolta maxxum HTsi plus

I'm assuming you need the whole chamber door. I think it would be pretty hard to find just the door, so I would suggest buying another HTsi Plus just to get the part you need. I looked on Ebay and saw an "HTsi body for parts". It was $30(USD) including shipping, not too bad. If there was a source to purchase just the door, I'm sure it would cost $10-20; so buying another camera body might be a better choice. You could probably buy a decent used/working HTsi for around $60-75. So it is up to you to decide what your best course of action is. If it is the door that you need, they are removed very easily (no tools needed).

You push the button and it will not take a picture. I put new batteries in it and it still will not take a picture.

My HTsi Plus never seems to be able to Auto Focus on a subject, so when you push the shutter button half-way, it just flashes the focus indicator (telling you it is unable to focus). Try switching over to the "Manual Focus" mode. On the front of the camera there is a button labeled "AF/M". Push that button to switch to manual focus. If the camera is in manual focus, the external LCD screen will say "M.Focus". Now try to snap a shot. If that still does not work, there may be something wrong with the camera or the lens. So, try using a different lens in manual focus mode. If it still does not work, then I would say the problem is with the camera itself.

I have a Minolta HTsi Plus. Recently I took some photos and there is a dark section (vertical) on 1/4th of the shot. It was daytime. The lab that developed them put "shutter lag" on the front of the photo...

If it was only when you used the flash, make sure the camera is set to 60 on the shutter for the flash. If this is happening all the time, then you need to send the camera off for repair.

Cant figure out where the shutter release cable hooks up oncamera

Sorry my friend, but the HTsi model lacks facility for a cable release. Use the self timer on a tripod instead to eliminate camera shake

Here's the link to a user guide if you don't already have one:
