How to adjust meter to new battery type. Diode for PX-13/625 meter…
The battery problem again. I am really thinking about, converting my RF cameras to "newer batteries". Here are some instructions for the Olympus 35SP.
"Take the top off and place a diode in the power wire at the junction block next to the viewfinder".
"When I convert an Olympus 35SP (or OM-1, 1N) to silver oxide battery (357, 303, G13, SR44W, MS76, KS76) I use the 1N-6263 schotkey diode. You can also use a 1N-34A and probably a host of others. Diode can only go in one way. Banded end should be "pointing" towards the battery (if you know what I mean.) Hope this helps. "- John Hermanson(Olympus tech since 1977) zukio.com
I would like to do the same to cameras that originally take PX640 and PX675 mercuries. Will this work with the same diodes ?
Also, my problem is to find the "power wire" in my cameras. Any suggestions?
Does their exist more links/ websites, that explain on how to convert your RF camera to "newer batteries" ? Or can you help ?
