    He repairs Yashica's...but not sure if he sells parts for cameras that he hasn't repaired in-house.

    On a quick advanced search of *bay, found a couple of possibilities.
    Auction #s: ( 171103146083 ) ( 281131180197 )

    Many of the repair parts I have purchased over the years came from *bay auctions.
    Mostly, from camera repair techs going out of business. It takes a little patience...and time.

    Maybe, someone with a Yashica 35 will give the measurements/dimensions of the battery
    cap, then you could find a cap from another, more common camera that will fit.
    Possibly, Mr. Hama, has some suggestions along these lines.

    Doing a bit of a similar search myself, though it's for a 35G. I've contacted people about the parts (not Mr. Hama though, yet), and for the plate, button, and screws, it's been almost as much as I've paid for the camera. While I did get a steal of a deal on it, if I'm going to pay $X, I'd rather send it in for a CLA+POD+battery check replacement for maybe $3X. With the FM2n, Canonet and Oly 35SP in shooter condition, though, it's taking a while to get around to it.
