Need to kno where the on/off button is for MINOLTA MAXXUM 7000 35MM CAMERA


There is no such button. Instead there's a slide switch on the top of the camera, to the right of the LCD screen, with three positions marked "LOCK", "ON", and "OFF". See this picture for the location of the "Main Switch".

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

I own a Minolta 7000 series that was given to me. I do not have the manual for it. On the front of the camera it also says AF. My question is, how do I rewind the film and take it out of my camera. ...


If it's a Minolta Maxxum 7000, it should automatically rewind the film when finished with the roll. To manually rewind the film, open the card door on the right side of the camera and press the rewind button. Open the back cover by pressing the button in the center of the back-cover release and sliding the release downward.

You can download the manual from

My Minolta 7000 makes funny sounds


Probly not. I suspect old, dried up lubricant gumming things up. causes resistance, motors stress out and it shuts off.

You can send it in for repair and Clean/ Lube/ Adjust. or get another on Ebay. Any Minolta Maxxum will use the same lenses.

How do i replace internal battery on the minolta maxxum 7000? i replaced the AAA batteries, but it still just flashes ''film'' in window.I have no manual and dont know how to get the film out.HELP!


Unscrew battery compartment on the right grip, and remove the battery holder (AAA's in most Maxxum 7000's) In the compartment you should see a silver colored metal plate, held on by 6 small phillips screws. Unscrew these, and carefully lift the plate, and move it aside (there's a tiny wire soldered inside the plate, so don't break it off).

Inside there should be a CR2016 lithium button battery. Replace it, and reassemble in reverse order.
NOTE: This probably won't fix any issues regarding the removal of the film, as the 2016 is just a memory backup battery for when the main batteries are removed.

to remove the film, install fresh main batteries, turn on the camera via the "Lock" switch and rewind the film. on the back of the camera, just behind the LCD screen, above the film door, you will see a grey button marked "R". Push and hold it, while sliding the gray slide switch immediately to the left of it to the left. The film should now rewind.

When the film is done rewinding, open the back via the sliding latch on the left side of the body with the gray button in the middle. Push the button, while sliding the latch down.

To insert film, place the cartridge in the same place and orientation as the old roll, and pull the leader over to the red dot on the bottom right of the film compartment, and close the back. it should advance to the first frame if done correctly, or blink 0 if done wrong.

Have Fun with your 7000!

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.
