SOURCE: The metering of my M8 is always over 1 2/3 stop,

Leicas are norrmally quite good on metering (within the confines of spot metering).

Have you checked whether any exposure compensation has already been programmed in? I don't think it resets itself, so if its consistently 5/3 of a stop out, then it might be that.

Page 107 of the user manual shows how to adjust / check..

Manual is here:

If its not that, you could use that function as a short term measure to consistently change the exposure.

You don't say how old it is.... if its still under warranty (actually, even if it isn't but its still reasonably new) I'd be tempted to correspond with Leica directly (write first - they respond quite quickly) to establish what they think the problem and solution should be. The 8 went to 8.2 quite quickly (by Leica standards), so its always worth an initital sounding out (which costs nothing). If it is their fault, they'll instruct you what to do next.

My toshiba TP48E60 model projection tv won' turn on, power light just blinks


Blinking of power LED are fault indications. Count the number of blinks occur at one time switch on. For this number, you can get an idea about the faulty section circuit inside it. It will make troubleshooting much narrower. If you wish to get more details about the blinking codes, check this link. Pull up older posts there.

Heard a pop , bulb blew out , replaced bulb , it worked for two days , now red light blinks three times pauses then three times and so on , tv won't turn off light won't turn off unless I unplug...


3 blinks indicates lamp door is not on or has not been reinstalled properly. This also could mean the lamp door switch has failed itself. Try removing the lamp door and putting back on, if that doesnt correct the problem then I recommend having the switch replaced.

The red "on" light is blinking and the TV


a suggestion: unplug set and try to turn on again; if power light blinks does it blink in a sequence?

3 blinks repeated will mean a problem in the Convergence area.

5 blinks repeated will mean a short on the 140 volt line.

These are the two most common error codes.

The metering of my M8 is always over 1 2/3 stop, any way to make the adjustment? or have to send it back to Leica?
