I have a new-to-me Yashica Dental Eye III. Scooped it for $30 shipped.

The camera looks to be in great shape - even the light seals are still foamy and not dried up and done at all. The unit looks like it is in pristine condition. Barely any dust...

But... it doesn't turn on. I do have the battery for it (the same battery that a Pentax SFX uses). But nothing.

There is not a lot on how to troubleshoot this unit, other than the procedure to remove the lens. I really want to use the camera as is, and not remove the lens (I shoot Pentax, and a C/Y to K mount adapter is not really good).

Any odeas on how to begin troubleshooting this? I will be opening the bottom to make sure that the battery cables are good and not shorted.

Anything else?

I feel like an idiot - my battery was bad... got a new battery and this puppy works like a charm...

Thank all reader.
