    Yes it does, and the funny thing that it happens to all batteries i put, 4 batteries and all giving that red blinking or continuous light in the viewfinder, so are all batteries dead or ran away even they are new un-opened? That what made me so crazy to think it is not the battery maybe if they all doing the same.

    Strange, maybe it is the body? Send it to B&H before the return. Is over, and have them check it, if they don't scare the same problem at least you know it something else, however if they do, then you're covered otherwise if you wait too long, then they won't cover it. And you're going to be screwed

    What type of battery are you using (size and composition - alkaline, silver-oxide, lithium)?

    It is too late, i bought it over 2 years now, and i didn't doubt at all it will be the body, so that i didn't return, and i am stuck now with unknown issue or what is the cause/source of this issue.

    This is the batteries i used, 2 of this Kodak, and one of that new unopened, and one another brand i forgot, so i have this one remaining and not sure if it will work. I ordered 20 pieces of thise 4L... batteries from ebay to be used for RZ and Mamiya 7, but i doubt it may work with Mamiya 7II, RZ has no issue with battery even if doesn't last longer.

    Those are alkaline batteries. Try getting the more expensive silver oxide version. And be sure to clean the battery contacts in the camera.

    This is the lithium version: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search...rch=yes&sts=ta

    The Mamiya 7II manual indicates that you can use any of the alternatives - alkaline, silver-oxide or lithium, but in my experience the silver-oxide cells are the most reliable.

    I buy mine through eBay - here is a 4-pack example of some that appear to be available to the U.A.E.: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4-x-544-En...item4ac4f4a496

    Cool, i will give that a try, why you didn't tell me about it earlier because i did ordered many things from ebay about 80 minutes ago, so i will put that on my second order for later, thank you very much for the links!!!

    I am worry that i might used that lithium battery as one of the 4 ones i tested, but i am not sure, in all cases i will try again and see, maybe i used only Alkaline batteries all the 4, hope this another battery of lithium or silver oxide will solve the problem,

    Another stupid question... Is the battery facing the right direction?

    Kidding, I'm sure the red light wouldn't function if the pols were reversed
