leitz flash ?
i just found the leitz flash that went along with my m3.
it hasn't been used in a long long time,
is it any good ? it has one of those
crazy circular fanned reflector gizmos.
You will have to check it out, I am afraid.
If it is for bulbs: try to get some bulbs and a new battery for it, they were not bad.
If it is an elctronic one:
The batteries will be dead, or nearly dead, try to recharge for one minute and see what happens: no smoke: give it another 5 minutes and so on.
If they have NiCads inside have them replaced by a repairman with NiMh ones, they will last longer.
Why don't you post a pic down here, it is a lot easier talking !
i will try to make a photo.
--- it isn't a newer one, its from the 50s/60s ..
it looks pretty much like this
I take it you are talking about a CEYOO.

Most of these took 22.5 volt #412 batteries, you will probably have to order one at some ridiculous price. If you are lucky you have the version that takes 4 AA cells.
If it is the 22.5V BC style then the electrolytic condenser in the unit will likely need to be replaced.
Radio Shack can probably get you the battery and condenser.
Wouldn't an m3 camera use M3 bulbs for it's flash ?
