Maybe just a typo, but you know it requires 4 (not 3) AAA batteries. The holder swivels to the side to expose a 4th battery slot that is sort of hidden under the others. Put a volt meter on the 2 tiny contacts to the right of the batteries. Make sure you get very close to 6 volts.

Try letting the camera set for a while with the new batteries in. I had the same problem, nothing worked after i replaced the batteries. I let it set for a couple of days and everything started working.

I purchased some replacement AAA batteries for the camera. Nothing happens when I depress the shutter button. The camera is a Nikon N2020 AF. It has not been used for quite awhile. The batteries used...


Happy ending to this saga of the Nikon N2020 AF. I went to Walmart and purchased some real photo grade batteries. At first the result was the same, no apparent change, dead camera. I left the batteries in the camera overnight. The next day I tried depressing the shutter button with the camera turned on to S for single shot, and to my amazement the camera came alive! I don't know why or how but now it works and I don't have to bring it in for servicing. Today we will be off to the local zoo to take some shots. Can't wait. Thanks for all the comments and suggestions.

I HAVE EOS620 ,I HAVE REPLACE WITH NEW BATTERY.THE CAMERA DONOT CLICK.SHOW LOW BATTERY


Apparently this camera uses a Lithium battery, and they are prone to deterioate over time. Be sure that you have a good battery as the replacement as the batteries are monitored by a small chip built into the battery pack that will lock the battery out and prevent it from re-charging if the battery voltage falls too low. This is a safety feature of lithium batteries to prevent them from exploding if they are re-charged too fast. As an alternative, you can look at the manual at http://www.butkus.org/chinon/canon.htm. and read it on line or down load for printing as a free item.

The new battery may be no good.

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.

Cant find batteries I live in Georgia


Depending on the battery holder, you can use AA, AAA, lithium.
If you have lithium battery holder, buy AAA battery holder or AA battery holder from eBay.

What type battery the N2000 uses. It seems that AA and AAA would not fit.


I know you say that A and AAA batteries don't fit, the the camera calls for (4) 1.5 V AAA-batteries. There are no other batteries that I am aware of that either resemble or replace that size and style of battery. You may want to try again. I hope this helps and good luck!

How do i replace internal battery on the minolta maxxum 7000? i replaced the AAA batteries, but it still just flashes ''film'' in window.I have no manual and dont know how to get the film out.HELP!


Unscrew battery compartment on the right grip, and remove the battery holder (AAA's in most Maxxum 7000's) In the compartment you should see a silver colored metal plate, held on by 6 small phillips screws. Unscrew these, and carefully lift the plate, and move it aside (there's a tiny wire soldered inside the plate, so don't break it off).

Inside there should be a CR2016 lithium button battery. Replace it, and reassemble in reverse order.
NOTE: This probably won't fix any issues regarding the removal of the film, as the 2016 is just a memory backup battery for when the main batteries are removed.

to remove the film, install fresh main batteries, turn on the camera via the "Lock" switch and rewind the film. on the back of the camera, just behind the LCD screen, above the film door, you will see a grey button marked "R". Push and hold it, while sliding the gray slide switch immediately to the left of it to the left. The film should now rewind.

When the film is done rewinding, open the back via the sliding latch on the left side of the body with the gray button in the middle. Push the button, while sliding the latch down.

To insert film, place the cartridge in the same place and orientation as the old roll, and pull the leader over to the red dot on the bottom right of the film compartment, and close the back. it should advance to the first frame if done correctly, or blink 0 if done wrong.

If you need anymore assistance, contact me via email cwrrailfan at yahoo dot com

Have Fun with your 7000!

Blinking film on screen.


Sounds like the batteries went dead, and the internal lithium memory battery was already dead, causing it to forget the settings. install fresh batteries, and reset the ISO of youtr film by holding down the ISO button, and pressing the up/down buttons behind the shutter release. That should return it to normal, but you will have the same problem again whenever you are changing the batteries until you replace the lithium cell. To change the lithium cell, remove tha battery pack, and open the metal plate in the camera's battery compartment. The cell is a lithium CR 2016.

If that does not fix it, you may have a broken camera.

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
