Hello, I am a bit baffled on this one. I took an entire lens structure off of one and put it on a better running super. While I did a total front breakdown of the one 814, there was nothing done in electrical at all. Only in the front of the camera was work going on. The closest I got to anything electrical is when the diaphragm was exposed along with the Meter, exposing the wiring from the cell battery holder to the metering housing

 

I have worked on plenty 814's , more than any super model and I have never heard of this, let alone seen it first hand. The only reason I noticed it initially was that the counter was clicking continuously.

 

Thanks for any return comments.

I have only ever seen this with batteries in backwards... in fact, it's really the only thing that can explain it (or the motor wired backwards by someone).
