  1. Looking for a replacement battery pack/container. My father bought his in Okinawa in 1961 and it still works but the removable compartment for the batteries as wore out and connections are not made now. Wondering if there is any place to purchase replacement parts for this camera. Yashica U matic, model #U1103939. Thank you in advance for any assistance.

    1. Hi Donna! Your best bet is to buy a replacement camera on eBay to get the part you need. Here’s a current listing of what’s available ATM
      And here’s a list of what’s sold recently https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=yashica+u+matic&_sacat=0&rt=nc&LH_Sold=1&LH_Complete=1
      I do this all the time whenever I need to find a part that’s no longer in production. Good luck! Chris
