Pentax 6x7 TTL Prism?

I have just bought the 6x7 with the TTL Prism head and I don't know if there is a battery in the prism, please help.

No, it runs off the battery in the body.
Get the manual for it, probably the Pentax USA website has a scan of it.
IIRC, the prism needs to be mounted to the camera before a lens is mounted or else the meter won't couple properly. I believe there is a small chain on the body that can be damaged as well if the mounting isn't done in the correct sequence.

Yeah, always remove the lens first before removing or reattaching the Prism. I broke my metering chain and fixing it cost a small fortune...
