Question about Nikon FG 35mm SLR Camera
On my nikon fg the light meter is very dim and will not give a correct reading. The lights stay around 60 and 125 f stop numbers no matter where the apature is set. The shutter will go slower than 125 but will not go any faster.
Ah, I figured this out. It's not the battery, since the light isn't dimmed. I had the same problem with the light being stuck at 60/120, and it was just flashing. There's a certain mechanism in the camera that only allows the light meter to start working when the exposure count is at 1. So when you load your film, you have to take 2 or 3 exposures, and crank it, before the light meter kicks in.

Try new batteries. If that doesn't help, the body likely has an internal failure in the electronics. It will almost certainly be less expensive to replace it than to have this type of problem repaired.
