I am sorry if you couldn't see the model no. although it was written as the detail of topic. however,
it is Sekonic L 758 cine.
I have the manual.
Its not working the way its written in manual hence i used the word "Problem".
I hope you understand the terms written in the post. because the way you have approached its doubtful.
For your Reference the image of screen is attached. The 'Sun' icon on the left corner represents the Ambient metering.
'T' stands for Shutter an 'F' stands for Aperture. In the Image its on Shutter priority mode.
And hope you understand the seriousness of this forum to use such language.

Anyways, Thanks.

Hey Chris, sorry for misunderstanding.
here is the problem when I try to change it from Aperture priority to Shutter priority (which it is showing on attached picture)in ambient lighting mode it doesn't change on that it goes to other modes.however, Initially it was in shutter priority.

I don't have my 758 with me here and I wish I could but I can't figure this out from memory but at least we have a little more info for someone else to be able to help. I'll have my meter back in my hands on Christmas day, which might be a wait too long for you !

;)

Hmmmm, but wait...

You realuse you are in one of the flash modes in that picture?

At least to be where you say you are you need the two brackets around the lightning zap to be around sun instead. Flash exposure is for the most part determined by aperture, which might explain it...
