I have a Nizo S800 with a temperamental light meter. In auto the meter does not work at all. When doing the meter test, sometimes the needle moves (to f8) sometimes it doesn't move at all. When moving the dial to manual, most of the time the needle will move, but sometimes it won't. The needle always move when doing a main battery test, and if I press the meter black button while doing the main battery test the needle retracts back to the right of f1.8.
I did open up the camera but there was nothing obvious that I could fix, i.e., no objects obstructing lightmeter, etc. And it wasn't obvious either where I could probe with my voltmeter. Any ideas and suggestions as to how to repair the meter are very much appreciated.
I've put in:
- 2 new Wein cells (checked them with voltmeter, both are good)
- new AA batteries. Camera runs fine at all speeds (after following AJ's method to correct the sticky trigger)
For those that would like to open up their S800 but never have I've posted pics here, along with an electrical wiring diagram:
