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.

Depending on the battery holder, you can use AA, AAA, lithium.
If you have lithium battery holder, buy AAA battery holder or AA battery holder from eBay.

there are no new parts available for the 7000, but if you go to a camera repair shop they may sell you a used one, or offer to install it for you at a reasonable price.

Batteries left inside


Hey profseverus,
I hate being the bearer of bad news, but what is probably going on is that the battery acid has corroded internal components. You could have it looked at by an authorized service technician, and see how much it would cost to get fixed. I don't know how thorough you were with your cleaning, but you definitely want to get all corrosion out of the battery compartment (try using rubbing alcohol and cotton swabs).

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Maxxum 7000 camera lithium battery


The lithium button cell is under the metal plate where the battery holder attaches. There are six screws holding the plate to the camera. I believe the cell is a CR-2025.

That being said, replacing the lithium battery will only restore the cameras ability to remember your settings and frame counter when the regular batteries are not on the camera. It will not restore functions of the camera.

If the camera is not functioning properly, you have a power problem with the main batteries, not the memory backup cell

Maxxum 7000


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.
