Question about Minolta Maxxum 5000 35mm SLR Camera
Lightspirit is correct here. Get a new body or better yet a newer model Maxxum 5,7, 9 have so many great features that you will stay away from digital for years to come(I did).

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.

Check to see if there is a button battery in another compartment. Usually the "big" battery is for the flash and some other functions but there may be another one that serves basic functions like aperture and shutter operation.
