LCD display on minolta autometer 3 constantly blinking

My minolta autometer 3's LCD meter does not stop blinking. i've tried changing batteries and other settings but every time you hit the read button all the LCD screen does is non-stop blinking- without giving any reading. All the other functions work on the screen exept for an actual reading. It has not been dropped or subjected to any physical jarring.

I use the settings recommended by my L358. However, when I set my camera to those settings in manual mode, my photos are dark. Why is this happening?


The fault is either with your camera/lens or with the meter itself. Try the meter with another camera, if the exposure error is still present then check that the custom compensation feature on your meter has not been set by mistake (page 26 of the user manual). If this doesn't cure the fault then try fitting a new CR123A battery. If the fault still remains then you can either compensate for the error by always using a longer shutter speed/wider aperture than recommended or you will need to send the meter for servicing.

Good luck, and please take a moment to rate my answer.

Re: Hahnel Giga T Pro Wireless Remote Control Hi,


I have exactly the same problem. This product seems faulty or something? My transmitter does not go on and I also can't work out where the batteries go besides if I had to open the thing up and check whats inside (which i do not want to do). The strange thing is that when I plug the transmitter directly into the camera it works as a (wired) remote. Weird. I think I should just have paid the extra money and gone with the original Canon intevelometer instead of this two-bit massed produced piece of shyte. Let me know if you figure out how to operate this frustratingly **** product.

L-358 light meter doesn't change modes


Most probably the switch under the Mode button went faulty. Try to operate the button many times, sometimes it helps, if the culprit is corrosion or small debris inside the switch. If not, have the meter repaired at Seconic.

When i ready to take a snap on the LCD display it


What camera are we talking about? A hand usually means image stabilization - it may show you that it's ON (working) or that you're moving and should stand still - it's hard to say without knowing what camera are you talking about.

I have recently purchased a Minolta light meter. It came without a battery. What kind do I need to get. The inside of the battery compartment has the nos. S-76 G13


S-76 and G13 are the battery type. It's most commonly known as an LR44 but is also called G13A, LR1154, L1154, RPX675, D76A, V13GA, PX76A, PX675A, GPA76, 1128MP, 1166A, depending on who makes them and is a really cheap alkaline (aka manganese dioxide) 1.5v cell.

A strip of ten of them can be bought online for as little as £1 (US $1.70).

Meter is consistently a half to a full stop off


I've known this problem to occur if the wrong kind of CR123/CR123A lithium battery is used. They come as rechargeable and dry cell (i.e. non-rechargeable) versions. For sensitive devices like yours the difference is important as the internal resistance of the rechargeables is lower which affects the voltage characteristics.This meter is designed only for the dry cell version: see page 34 of the user manual, although the instructions don't make this fact clear enough IMHO. The reason for using the dry cell version is that the output voltage remains constant until the battery is nearly exhausted, but the rechargeable version starts at a slightly higher than nominally rated voltage and drifts down as the battery discharges. This means that you only get a truly accurate reading with a dry cell battery. There is no user adjustment to recalibrate the meter but you can use a different ISO rating to compensate or use the exposure compensation settings.

Minolta 5 degree viewfinder instructions for my auto meter IV F.


The bright circle seen in the eyepiece indicates the measurement area. When measuring subjects at about 1 m (3.3 ft) from the meter, use the eye point (that is the dot that you will see somewhat off center, is what they illustrate,) for close-range subject.
