Question about Pentax ME Super 35mm SLR Camera
My light meter LED's suddenly stopped working. I replaced the batteries but still nothing in manual, auto or anything... any ideas???
Easy solution : remove battery cover and clean inside the battery chamber AND the battery cap/cover itself ( use pencil erasor or anything slightly abrasive )
More demanding solution : remove top cover and locate red wire on the left hand side of the circuit board ( impossible to miss; the wire brings power from battery chamber to the main board ) and resolder ( dry joint ) . You should also actually measure whether you are getting 3V through this wire ( one connection to the contact and the other to the body of the camera ). If you are still not getting anything out from the battery chamber the red wire needs replacing.

There are several problems under this post. Not all are the same.
The posters problem is most likely due to the contacts which turn the metering circuit on. These need re-adjusting. Theres' a screw an a cam inside.
To leans how to dismantle the camera to access this part there is a camera repair website which deals with these cameras in detail. The author also can service these cameras at a very competetive price.
