Replaced the internal battery in my Minolta 700, and now nothing works. Old battery was srill working, but figured after about 20 years it needed replaceing. film will not load, and the display will flash the ISO # when installing battery pack.

    Found the battery compartment for the internal battery. There was still life in the ol girl, but figured after more than fifteen years it should be replaced. Put a new battery in and the darn thing would not work. Nothing I did would make it work. I figured she was dead, kaput, out-a-here. I left the battery in the camera and checked it in about 3 days, and the thing was working fine. Everything worked. I don't know why, but it did. Anybody having the same problem, give a few days, it might just work.

After the lithium battery stops providing power to the memory, the camera forgets everything it was set to. The flashing ISO screen is a prompt that's telling you to reset your settings. Until you reset them, the camera won't respond to anything. To reset the ISO, hold down the ISO button, and use the up/down buttons behind the shutter release to set the ISO of the film you intend to load. After that, everything should be back to normal.

My internal battery is dead. How do you get it out? I see it under the piece of plastic, but I don't know how to move the plastic cover. I don't want to break it. I'm sure it's easy, but I just can't see how to flip it open.

    Mine is actually a 7xi and is located on the inside of the camera back. Has anyone changed theirs and know how to get it out?

There may be a button battery on the bottom side of the camera. Look for a circle about 3/4 of an inch in diameter with a screwslot in the middle. This battery number is "usually" CR2032.

What year was the Minolta Maxxum 7000, serial number 16043985? Thanks, Karla


I do not know for certain. You might find that answer on the Yahoo Minolta groups.
The Maxxum 7000 was introduced to the US market in 1985. Sold as the Alpha 7000 in Japan and Dynax elsewhere, it was replaced by the 7000i in a couple years. Then the 700, the 700xi, the 700si, the 70 and the 7 was the last film based 7 series. There
They also made 8000i, 800si, etc. The 9 series was the Minolta Professional cameras and they had the toughest bodies, weatherproofing, higher shutter speeds, and more.
Later models introduced better autofocus, better exposure options, wireless flash, faster film advance, etc.

Konica lenses do not fit Minolta cameras. I think you messed something up.

Minolta MC and MD lenses worked on the older manual focus Minolta bodies. They will also work on the Phoenix and Seagull clones of the old Minolta bodies.

The Konica lens should only ever be mounted on a Konica camera.

Your 7000i is now a Minolta paperweight. You need to send your 7000i for repair or replace it.

You could also look on Ebay for another Maxxum body to use your lenses designed for the Minolta A mount. As a rule, camera lenses are not interchangeable. You can use any Maxxum lens on any Maxxum body as a rule, but Minolta changed their flash shoe after the original 7000 series. Flashes that work with your 7000i will work with any subsequent Maxxum.

Minolta maxxum 7000 35 mm camera


I had the same problem. After I replaced the lithium backup battery, everything works perfectly. It is a CR2016 watch battery and it is located behind the silover plate inside the battery compartment. Remove the 6 screws and replace the battery. Note the polarity when you remove the plate because the camera will not operate if if it is put in backwards.
