Hello! I'm happy to find your site. My Minolta Maxxum 7000 35mm SLR Camera is not working. I didnot use it for nearly for2 years as I've been doing lot of Video shooting of late. recently I had to take take stills and opened my Minolta Maxxum 7000 35mm SLR Camera and inserted 4 Duracell AA battaries as I've been doing before but to to my surprise I saw smoke coming out of the Camera and immidiately I removed the battaries and saved further damage. Now I've no solution for this. If you can suggest an otherised center to repair this problem in India i'll be very much tankful. thank You once again P.S.R.Murthy.

    I have the same problem. Since then the camera doesn't work any more. The smoke coming out of the body is a sign of an overheated electronic part, maybe a resistor. But where? Does anybody know what part is damaged and has to be changed?

    Found a relative's Minolta Maxxum 7000 that had been sitting around for several years and I put batteries in to discover that it was getting hot immediately and the battery life was under 10 minutes... for four AAA batteries. Just want to find any method or replaceable part to fix this. Thanks.

Dear Minolta friends,
I have recently bought a second hand Maxxum 7000 and a AF lens, but found the body not ocntrolling the aperture while shooting. I know 7000 has someting special. Is my problem is due to lens and body compatibility or actually the malfunction of the body. I am sure the AF lens is ok since i have tried it working with another minolta af body.
Can give me an advice?

Where do you insert a sim card into a minolta maxxum 5 camera


Cameras, especially film cameras, do not use "SIM" cards. There were some models of Minolta film cameras that used exposure cards for auto-settings but only cellular phones and devices with cellular interfaces (iPads) use SIM cards. Here's a copy of the Maxxum 5 manual if that helps.

Photography Class Camera


Hello, depending on the class he is taking you may find that a normal digital camera will suffice. Most camera classes and courses now use digital, unfortunately the old film cameras are becoming a thing of the past. If your son is a mad keen photographer then I would consider investing in his future and buy him a good quality digital SLR. I hope this is somewhat helpful.

Missing battery cover for Minolta Maxxum 8000i SLR camera, can this be ordered online? Need this replacement part - father passed away and this was one of the gifts I am passing on to his brother. ...


NO.
this camera has been out of production for over 20 years.
Minolta quit the camera business 2 years ago.
Best bet: search Ebay and get another that needs repair. Grab the batt holder from it and keep the rest of it fer parts!!!
