Question about Minolta Maxxum 7000 35mm SLR Camera
How do you rewind the film on a minolta 7000 maxxium
I used to do this on an old Kyocera, and somehow looking at the 7000 diagram, they have the same, almost the same design.
take the camera to somewhere dark and clean (like dust free and all) perhaps your darkroom if you have one, bring a pair os scissor and a film container (for worst cases that the film is torn). clean your hands as well.
Check the bottom of the camera for a small button that disengages the motor gear (film release button). now open the film door then use a fingers to carefully pull the film evenly, you may feel like the film is being stuck, and if in case it did not move, check if you have a film release button on the bottom of the camera (usually place right below the film). as you do this feel the track of the film and check for damages that will indicate that the film has been torn because it is not loaded correctly or the motorhead malfunctioned.
now just wind the film back to the canister unless the track is torn off (note to leave the film leader out), once it is out, get the film developed right away.
now if the film track is torn cut it off then place it in the container, then have this handed to the developer and tell them that this is an open film, since it can be developed, partially though, it depends on the cut.
OR better off, you can bring your camera to the developer then tell then the film is broken inside and they will do all these for you.

This seems to be a much simpler question than assumed by the answer above. Did the first answerer have much more information? The simple answer is: Push down the small "R" button on the back of the camera beneath the display and slide the gray knob next to it to the left. This assumes no problem with the film transport mechanism. Stan
