Question about Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D / Dynax 7D Digital Camera
The internal Lithium battery in my Maxxum 7D has died, the manual said to return the camera for repair. I wll replace the camera before I send it to the factory for this minor an issue. If I can find out where to find the battery I can replace it myself.
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.
