So, I have checked the battery compartment. There is a yellow wire connected but found a disconnected blue one around.
So could anyone tell me what wires should be connected to the battery compartment of Konica auto s3? Are there only 2 wires? I just don't want to connect the wrong wire as I am not sure if the blue one is definitely from the battery compartment - there is always a chance that someone else was messing with the wires before me.
Thanks a million,
Mine was faulty too so I opened it up and found the battery wire was totally garbage all the way to the CDS eye
I had to rewire it
The yellow wire goes to the large dual prong terminal that touches the battery's side
Blue to the negative which is the single terminal
I had to remove the lens barrel and the front trim ring along with the name plate bezel with the CDS eye
The blue wire which goes to the CDS all the way to the battery was replaced to make it work again
The shutter does not have to be split to replace the wiring neither so it was fairly simple to do
