New battery outputs 1.55V, instead of the 1,35V required.

On a fleamarket, I found a fully working mercury cell. Just by luck.

repair will be done on another cam.

this one is now working as expected. will not modify this one any further. except follower starts acting up.

 

case closed.

side note: mercury cells were banned for a reason. act acordingly.
