Hi Everyone;

I recently picked up, at a thrift store, a Yashica Electro 35 GX. The camera appeared to be in good condition, other that the fact that there was alot of corrosion in the battery chamber. I used the old white vinigar trick, and cleaned it up nicely, however I was unable to get the electronincs working. I then removed the bottom plate and noticed that a white wire had become detached from the battery chamber due to corrosion. When I attempted to clean up the end of the wire it became detached from wherever the other end was attached. I am wondering if anyone has had a similar experience with this camera, and if they have any advice on repairing this problem. Thanks in advance,

There are some handy folks here that surely can offer some advise. You may want to consult the Yashica Guy too.

Matt's Cameras has a photo of the white wire connected from the battery box to a solder point. Here's the link, look for the section titled "What about the bottom?"

The Yashica Electro 35 GX of which you have just become a proud owner incorporates a fully automatic exposure system, enabling you to make automatic exposures under virtually all lighting conditions, from candle light to glaring snow or beach scenes. In addition, it features a unique Electro Auto Flash System which permits you to go fully automatic with flash exposures as well.Particularly in automatic flash exposure, the use of the exclusive Yashica ES-20 AUTO strobe unit affords the utmost convenience. While mounted on your camera, this unit can be swiveled to the right or left for bounce flash technique.Many flash techniques, such as off-camera flash, twin flash and bounce flash, can be employed most effectively and exposure in these cases will also be fully automatic. To enable the most efficient application of these flash techniques,
