SOURCE: 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.

You could be having a switch problem, or another intermittent problem. Most the the switches on devices these days require that the unit be disassembled to clean them, and that's tedious. You should call Sekonic and see if they can help, or service the unit.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Battery charging


Depends on how much the battery is in use, and how much battery life is left.
If it's relatively new (3 years old) and fully empty, it could be full by 2 hours - 2 h 30 min. If it gets really hot before that time, it's full by then.

When the light is off, its mean your batteries already full so charging process stopped automatically.
After usage and the battery empty again, you can recharge them and you'll get the light is ON again.

Ok all mine had the same problem however problem has been solved! The power cord that plugs into the charger is a common cord you may have laying around the house. I switched the power cord to my charger and the dreaded blinking stopped! Its just a bad power cord to the charging unit! Hope this helps!

After a few seconds cooling fan stops and it doesn't charge.


This usually indicates that the battery is fully charged. Does the indicator light change? Have the batteries been sitting unused for a while? If so, they may have oxidized inside and will no longer take a charge. The charger is indicating they are full, but instead of being full of energy, they are full of crud and need to be replaced.
Good luck!

Ducati 620s - Won't Start - Dead


The battery has died over the winter. Indicators staying on is a sure fire signal of low battery charge.

The battery may have enough amperage to get the headlight and the horn working, but the indicator relays take a bit more.

New battery I'm afraid.

Be sure to charge your battery at least 15 hours to get the full power out of it. The charger light doesn't always indicate the full charge. Shop around the internet for independent repair shops. Our general repair charge is half the price you mentioned.
