Question about Minolta Maxxum HTsi Plus 35mm SLR Camera
I have a Minolta Maxxum HTsi plus 35mm camera and I was wanting to know if the lens are compatable with any of the digital cameras? Here is the lens I have: (Lense) Tamron AF ASPHERICAL LD (IF) 28-300mm 1:3.5-6.3 MACRO 1850 (Extra Lense 4 longer zoom) PROMASTER SPECTRUM 7 1.7X TELECONVERTER FOR MAXXUM Mx-AF (Flash) MINOLTA PROGRAM 5400 HS 1/8000 sec thanks, James
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.

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.

The remote cord came in 2 versions: rc-1000s is 50cm (about 19 inches) and rc-1000l is longer at 5m (about 16 feet). Both are discontinued, but KEH.com lists an rc-1000l used right now for $13.00 US. Their stock changes daily. Its a reputable store. You could also check eBay or a local camera store.
