Maxxum 5 broken battery door

I need a replacement for a broken battery door for a Maxxum 5 camera. I have looked on ebay but have not been able to find one. Does anyone know where I might be able to locate one, or if any other Minolta cameras have a battery door that would work on a Maxxum 5? Thanks

I use US Camera on the internet.  They have a huge inventory of parts and work pretty well with the do-it-yourselfer. For the Maxxum 5: www.uscamera.com/1min003.htm

Broken battery door


No. Duct tape will hold the battery but it won't make contact. Without something connecting that end of the battery to the circuitry in the camera, you may as well leave it empty.

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).

Model QTsi Maxxum. Need a new battery chamber door. The door is broken off. Any ideas?


The battery door on these models just hooks under a wire next to the battery hole. They can pop off rather easily as they are a small piece held in place by a spring, essentially.
You can often find the part on ebay for a few $ and snap it in place yourself. The same battery door is used by the XTsi, HTsi, STsi cameras.
Its very possible that you did not lock it properly the last time you put in new batteries. Hold the door down while you turn the quarter as you lock or unlock it. Otherwise the pressure of the battery spring will prevent a good lock.

BATTERY COMPARTMENT& PUSH TO SHOOT BUTTON EATEN AWAY BY BATTERIUES GONE BAD


Maxxum 7000 are cheap these days. Get a used one on Ebay and keep yours for parts.
Better yet, get a 7000i, 700xi, 650xi, 800xi or a Maxxum 5, 7, or 9. Why? More focus points, faster AF, more options, same lenses. But you will need to replace your flash.
BTW...remove batteries when you aren't put it away.

I also have a 7000 that needs a battery holder and with cover


Rodger, I can't help you with a replacement battery holder. If you plan to keep the camera, after all its almost 25 years old, I suggest: Take it to a repair guy. Why? find out what caused the short, and fix that, or you will have the same problem again. Get another one on Ebay as a parts source. Hey, they are old cameras. Otherwise: If the camera came with lenses andstuff, go to Ebay and get another cheap Maxxum and use the lenses on it. It will have a faster autofocus, weigh less and be smaller.
