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.

Konica minolta maxxum 7d support


This is a common problem with the 7D. The shutter curtain will stick after several years of service. Put the camera in clean mode to get the curtain to lift, or send it to Sony to replace it. It was a design flaw by Minolta.

The shutter release problem is very common in the 7d. The carbon rods in the stabilizing servo fail. I have had quotes of just over $400 from non OEM. I recommend sending it to Sony. Good luck

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.

Function buttons on left side of LCD screen won't work. Can't get out of opening screen to menu screen for camera adjustments, can't delete pictures, can't resize pictures.


If you have given the correct information, this camera needs repair.
You don't have many options. Repair, or sell the camera on a site such as Ebay for parts, as is or repair parts.

If the camera has been damaged by either impact, or water exposure, it is possible that the internal parts have damage repair cost which can be more than you want to pay since this camera is a few years old.

If there has been no damage, then some internal cable may have come loose or broken. Some times this can happen from normal use.
That some components may have failed is also a posiblity.

It's a fault in the camera and has to be repaired at the shop, Sorry, I know it's not the answer you were hoping for, but it's a depressingly common problem on the 5d/7d forums.

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

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.
