Lithium backup battery

I can't figure out where it is in the 7000 body. How do I get to it to change it? Thanks.

    Answering my own question. I found the answer in another post. The backup battery is under the metal plate where the battery compartment attaches. It is held in place by 6 screws. I guess that is why the original Minolta manual tells you to take it to a dealer for replacement.

Found in a posting somewhere. The backup battery is a CR2016/2025 and is located beneath the metal plate on the body under the battery compartment. It is held in place with 6 screws.

Second request re: taylor lithium electronic scale model 7000 not working after changing battery twice. Yes interested correctly


On Amazon this scale got 24% 5 star and 43% 1 star rating.
In many cases it quit working or broke in some way.
"I owned this model for 1 year before it gave me the "batt" signal. after I spent another $7 on new lithium batteries, it turned out the scale was broken. looking on the web, I discovered lots of other stories like mine. advice: find another brand."

Maxxum 7000 My Program Back 70 has the display "flashing" like it needs a replacement battery. Any ideas on what is causing this. I looked and it does not seem to have anywhere to hold a lithium backup...


take off the battery holder and remove the screws on the metal plate. gently lift the plate and replace the battery. remember the different length of the screws.
camera may need a little time to for the circuit to energize.

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

TI-83 Plus silver edition won't turn on.


the screen may be at the lowest dim setting, try turning it on, then pressing the 2nd key and then hold the up key and see if anything appears, if not let me know and I will try to figure out something else, I own a 83, 84, and 89 so it shouldn't be too hard to figure out

Maxxum 7000


The lithium button cell is only a memory backup for when the main power pack is off the camera. It allows the camera to retain the number of exposures, asa setting, etc. You problem may lie in the battery holder. The BH70 was prone to corrosion at the contacts and the pivot points where the part that holds the batteries to the side plate with the retaining screw. It is possible to remove the batteries from the holder, then carefully separate the two pieces by popping one end enough to allow the pivot pin to slide past the notch. Use a hard eraser to clean all of the metal points (pivot contacts and the springs and plate in the 4 cell holder.

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.

Is the battery that comes with the camera rechargeable?


Yes, the battery that comes with the C-7000 can be recharged. This battery is the Olympus LI-12B Lithium Ion battery and it can be recharged using the LI-10C battery charger. Both the battery and charger are included with the camera.
