I dont know what batteries to use and film to use on my minolta maxxum 70.


The Maxxum 70 uses two 3V CR2 lithium batteries.

The Maxxum 70 can use almost any 35mm film. Color prints, color slides, black-and-white prints. Do NOT use Polaroid instant film or infrared film.

When trying to take a picture, I got a "Help" message. Now I can't do anything at all. How do I remove it?


How do you remove the HELP message?
On Minolta cameras this often means that the film transport motor needs to be replaced. Since your 400si cannot advance film, it yells for help.

Send it to a repair shop for a new motor and a cleaning, or buy another on Ebay. The 400si bodies are cheap these days. You might even end up with an extra lens or flash.

"help" is displayed in data panel


On the Minoltas that usually means that the film advance motor has died or one of the plastic gears has broken teeth. In any case, it needs repair.
Consider getting it repaired or go to Ebay and get another Maxxum for about the same price.

Blinking 0 on my minolta maxxum 5 after I loaded the film. I cant take any pics.


It did not load your film. open the back, be sure you have the film pulled across the opening to the far side of the take-up spool, and close the back again. It should make noise as it winds the film, then number 1 should appear in the top window. If it does not make noise and advance film, you likely need the film advance motor replaced. Every time you close the back, it will try to advance film.
The motor itself can die and those plastic gears can break teeth. If repositioning the film does not work, your maxxum needs a trip to the repair shop.

When I install the battery in my 7000i it makes a noise the screen has two lines appear but the camera will not turn on.


I had a similar problem with my 8000i. Parts are getting scarce for these older Maxxums, but you can still get it repaired. Unless you are emotionally attached to this 7000i consider replacing it. You should be able to find another on Ebay for a decent price. You might also consider the subsequent generations which offer better AF performance. The 650xi, 700xi and 800xi are all good cameras and available on Ebay. Lighter versions like the Maxxum 70 and the XTsi are also available. The last of the film Maxxums was the single digit 7. It is generally regarded as the best of the Maxxum series, but still sells on Ebay over 150.00 typically. These subsequent models will take all your maxxum lenses and flashes. These newer models offer many other features and often less weight to carry around.

What does HELP on the camera mean.


On the maxxum cameras, that usually means the film transport motor is dead. It could also be a stripped gear, but more likely the motor. Time to repair or replace the camera.
Get a repair estimate before you commit to the fix. If you choose to get it repaired, they will most likely Clean, Lubricate and Adjust it as well. Balance the repair cost against the cost of another Maxxum on Ebay. For the price of a repair you can likely replace it with another equal or fancier model.

What year was the Minolta Maxxum 7000, serial number 16043985? Thanks, Karla


I do not know for certain. You might find that answer on the Yahoo Minolta groups.
The Maxxum 7000 was introduced to the US market in 1985. Sold as the Alpha 7000 in Japan and Dynax elsewhere, it was replaced by the 7000i in a couple years. Then the 700, the 700xi, the 700si, the 70 and the 7 was the last film based 7 series. There
They also made 8000i, 800si, etc. The 9 series was the Minolta Professional cameras and they had the toughest bodies, weatherproofing, higher shutter speeds, and more.
Later models introduced better autofocus, better exposure options, wireless flash, faster film advance, etc.

Autofocus doesn't work on maxxum 5000i


Auto focus makes noise? Its been jarred outa position or tiny mirror behind main mirror outa alignment. AF silent? AF module needs replaced = repair shop. Considering what you'll pay for the repair, buy another Maxxum on Ebay for less and give the 5000 to a repair guy for parts to repair others. That generates goodwill with the repair guy. Maybe a discount on a future repair, and get you a newer Maxxum with better AF, more features, less weight, it will use all your current stuff except flash, and you'll save $$ over the repair price. Look for a 500xi, 700 xi, 50, 70, 5, XTsi or HTsi.

The film wont advance


remove and reinsert battery.
be sure you pulled the film all the way across the back.
be sure the door latches.
be sure camera is on.
try the rewind button, it may think it has film in it, ready to rewind.
Still no good? film advance motor may be dead. If so, it needs repair. Lucky for you, the Maxxum 50 goes for cheap on Ebay. You can get another at a good price.
