You need an NP-400 Li-ion lithium battery - I suspect ebay or Amazon can fix you right up.

To change this battery you need to dissasemble the back of the 7D, the metal frame behind this one, the front and the right cover and the PCB that support the compact flash reader/writer.
You can see the top of the battery if you remove the compact flash card and look right on top of the connector. The silver rounded portion behind the connector is the battery (5mm diameter soldered on the back of the PCB).
This is quiet difficult job, wit a few delicate connectors, and the flat cable coming from the gyro near the lens is very difficult to reconnect.

No, what bri1911 needs is a simple explanation in the user manual that states where and how to access the 7D's internal battery for its replacement. Unfortunately, that manual only instructs to seek the services of a specialist Konicaminolta dealer to do what should otherwise typically be a simple task.

Incidentally, the internal battery is needed to retain the date and time! If the internal battery fails the date and time are lost each time you switch the camera off and switch it back on again, at which point you are presented with the option to reset them.

The NP-400 - which is more of an auxiliary battery - only retains the date and time while the camera is on. Once the camera is switched off the date and time is lost until such time as the internal 'memory' battery is replaced with a new one.

I would also like to know where the battery is so that I can replace the battery in my 7D. It strikes me as it seems it is with Casio watches as a money making thing on the part of what was Konicaminolta.

Hello. The batteries on my Minolta Dynax SPxi just died and i wonder how to change them? Do I take them out of the little plastic case or buy a whole new "set" of them? Thanks for any replies


Here is a link to the manual if you need one: http://www.uscamera.com/downloads/maxx3xi-om.pdf

Do not open the battery pack to try and replace the batteries, the are Lithium Ion. Purchase a new battery pack for replacement. Many available on eBay.

The light meter is not working on my Minolta Maxxum 7000. Someone told me that I need to replace the lithium battery but I can't find any place on my camera that would hold the lithium battery.


Your camera uses 4x AAA 1.5v alkaline manganese batteries (definitely NOT lithium, your camera doesn't respond well to rechargeables of any kind either). If you look at the side of the right hand grip you'll see a large screw. Use a coin to turn it counter clockwise a quarter turn and the battery compartment will then open.

It seems that you'll find a user manual to be of use. Click here for part one and here for part two; both are free downloads in .pdf format.

Precision Camera picked up the responsibility for fixing the 7D and 5D Konica-Minolta cameras when Sony bought out K-M. I contacted them when my 7D wasn't functioning, and sent them my camera. Fortunately, on of the problems was "First Frame Black". Precision completely refurbished my camera and returned it to me in better than new condition. Sony picked up the full cost for the total refurbishing; all I paid was the shipping cost to Precision. I might add that my 7D was not in warranty. The URL for Precision Camera is:
http://www.precision-camera.com/ . Give it a shot.

CAMERA PROBLEMS


I had the same problem. Took picture; camera turned itself off after one shot; review of picture showed no image (black). Thought it was battery or card but battery fully charged. Took card out; turned camera on; activated shutter; camera turned itself off. Reinserted (same) card; turned camera on; took picture; problem solved. No idea why. Gary

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

Have you checked to make sure your batteries are fully charged? Thats what happened to me after my camera had sat out in a cold auto trunk for a couple of hours.
