Remove old batteries asap and (use gloves) dry the the dirty with cotton swabs, discharging them as they get wet. Apply commom kitchen white vinegar with the help of a small paintbrush. Repeat 2-3 times. Dry with cotton balls. In general this helps. Be aware that the contacts coat (nickel, I suppose) have been gone. This demands a constant check (every week or so) to maintain them clean. I had this problem in an old Olympus Camedia C2000Z and the above procedure was effective in it.

Try fresh batteries. Check for corrosion from leaking batteries on contacts and where battery compartment snaps onto battery door. Clean corrosion if there. If you do not measure over 6 volts at the two metal contacts on the door, then this is probably the problem (very common). Otherwise, failure of motor, loose screw in transport gearing unit on top

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

My Maxxum 7000 won't power up with new batteries


Good Afternoon,
it's very possible that you're still having a battery supply issue. When the battery compartment is tipped out to replace the one inside AAA battery you'll notice a small sliding contact it's very easy to overlook. I would suggest cleaning always contacts again using vinegar. Then wash it off completely, dry well and then reattach your batteries and try it again. Remember that the battery box has to be firmly in place and the retainer screw completely screwed in to activate the switch on the side of the camera to allow the camera to function. If you try this and it again fails it's also possible that your particular maxim had a used metering link installed just underneath the battery compartment that metering link can also fail when it does get acts as a crime or refuse and the camera won't function. The last thing I would check would be your primary backup battery which is located under the stainless steel plate that your batteries set up next to on the side of the camera it's held in the position by six screws. This is a 2025 battery and is easily replaceable. Please be sure and check your power supply first as this is 90% of the problems that we see in the shop good luck if you have any other issues feel free to contact me directly at Dave@advancecamera.com

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.
