20 Most Recent Minolta Maxxum 7000 35mm SLR Camera Questions & Answers

Is the camera turned on; okay simple question but sometimes that is all that is needed. Look in the battery compartment is it clean, does it have battery corrosion? Sometimes the wires in the battery compartment become corroded thus not making a connection. If so a CLA will be needed.

This camera is powered by a 6-volt 2CR5 battery. Check the battery, look at the camera battery condition indicator. If it is all black the battery is fully charged. If it does not show all black or partially black remove the battery and test it with a battery tester. If the battery checks good then look inside the battery compartment making sure it is clean without any battery leakage. Again, if the battery and battery compartment are clean as they should be then it may need a CLA.

Try fresh batteries. Check for corrosion from leaking batteries on contacts and where battery compartment snaps onto battery door. Clean corrosion if there. If you do not measure over 6 volts at the two metal contacts on the door, then this is probably the problem (very common). Otherwise, failure of motor, loose screw in transport gearing unit on top
