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).

Film advance motor


This camera is powered by a 6-volt 2CR5 battery. Check the battery, look at the camera battery condition indicator. If it is all black the battery is fully charged. If it does not show all black or partially black remove the battery and test it with a battery tester. If the battery checks good then look inside the battery compartment making sure it is clean without any battery leakage. Again, if the battery and battery compartment are clean as they should be then it may need a CLA.

The light meter does not light up. I've put 2 new batteries in. The shutter works and the camera worked perfectly when i put it in storage 10 years ago. How do i get the light meter to work?


First off, did you store it with batteries installed? If so, check the compartment to be sure there's no corrosion on the contacts. If there is, a pencil eraser works well to clean it off - I don't recommend using any sort of liquid since it can seep into the inside.

If that's not the issue, I can't remember if the ME Super is a mechanical or electronic shutter. Does the shutter function, without any batteries installed? If so, it's mechanical and will not depend on batteries, and therefore there is really no way to narrow down the cause of the issue beyond a good cleaning.

If on the other hand it will not function without batteries, but is with them, you know the power system is working, and the meter itself is the issue. It'll require a technican to open the camera and hunt down the exact cause. Cost for an estimate most places is around $35, if you don't have a local shop, KEH Camera which has a website is very good,

You can of course just use the camera without a working meter. Handheld meters can be picked up from $10-400 online (ebay and others), or you can guesstimate your exposures if using print film using the tried and tested "sunny-16" rule of exposure.

We put new batteries in a Nikon EM and the light does not come on when battery is check...they are in correctly. Does anyone know how a light meter can get broken?


The battery check is by pressing a very small silver button on the top plate by the shutter release and the little red light come on right? there is only two small button batteries in the EM but without them it's a brick. So look inside the battery compartment and at the bottom you will see a spring piece of metal which the batter makes contact with. If it is corroded then you will have to clean that off to make contact again. Take a new pencil with a new unused red rubber eraser and form a piece of sand paper over the end of the pencil and tape it securely. Lightly twist the pencil back and forth between your fingers to sand off the corrosion, make it shinny. Blow out the dusty dirty stuff with a puffer make sure the batteries are installed correctly. Yes I know you said the batteries were in the right way install the batteries check wiht the battery test button. Also don't forget the EM is a totally battery dependent camera for the meter AND the meter will not work until you have the frame counter at frame # 1 and beyond. My Nikon EM has been slightly modified yours might not be the same but I can close the back and advance the lever trip the shutter and again until it reaches frame one and then the light meter works. Cheers great little camera hope you get it working

The light meter is not working on my Minolta Maxxum 7000. Someone told me that I need to replace the lithium battery but I can't find any place on my camera that would hold the lithium battery.


Your camera uses 4x AAA 1.5v alkaline manganese batteries (definitely NOT lithium, your camera doesn't respond well to rechargeables of any kind either). If you look at the side of the right hand grip you'll see a large screw. Use a coin to turn it counter clockwise a quarter turn and the battery compartment will then open.

It seems that you'll find a user manual to be of use. Click here for part one and here for part two; both are free downloads in .pdf format.

My camera will turn on but will not take pics (shutter won't release)and if I leave it on without activity the red light comes on


Your problem may be due to a buildup of corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera preventing full battery power from flowing into the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during the cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and reinsert them into the camera. This cures the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

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.

Minolta dimage f100 lens sticks


I had a similar problem.

I'd left the camera unused for over a year...then came to use it, installed new fully charged-up NiMh batteries, but no response at all from the camera.

I found a small black plastic clip inside the battery compartment, close to the opening. It ended up being some kind of reset switch. I depressed this for about five seconds, then installed the batteries and the camera came back to life, as it used to.

Hope this helps.

Tair.
