    Hello,

    I fellow co-worker gave me a non-working Yashica FX-3 super to see if I could get it to work. After a good cleaning, it seems to be working mechanically (shutter), but it is missing the battery cover, so I can't test the meter. Anybody knows where I could get a used one? or an equivalent? I don't really want to spend a lot of money on this just in case it doesn't work. The lens was cleaned but it does have some tiny minor fungus inside. I don't think he plans to use it much, just sentimental reasons.

    Thanks,

    You might try the larger camera-repair operations. They might have some in their parts bins.

    You can get one here.

    They are similar to the Ricoh KR5 battery covers. It's a little pricey but if you needed that much, here it is.

    Consider a 'sold for parts and repair' camera on eBay. The price may be better.
