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.

I hav a clarion auto cd/stereo displaying err 6 please explain, thank you


Error 1.Battery inside CD Changer needs to be replaced.
Error 2.CD error message. Mechanism has as eject problem or takes a long time to select CD.
Error 3.CD error message. The pick-up is out of focus during play mode due to scratches on the disc or contamination.
Error 4.Connection problem. Reconnect the data cable.
Error 5.CD error message. Could not read correct data due to CD ROM.
Error 6.CD error message. Could not read data from disc because it is upside-down.

For error code 6:
Try an original purchased cd with no scratches and see if the cd player reads it. If yes then lens is dirty or tired so try using a cleaning cd(has little brushes on it). If it doesn't read with the original cd try using the cleaning cd and if no go then look at purchasing a new cd player!

I use the settings recommended by my L358. However, when I set my camera to those settings in manual mode, my photos are dark. Why is this happening?


The fault is either with your camera/lens or with the meter itself. Try the meter with another camera, if the exposure error is still present then check that the custom compensation feature on your meter has not been set by mistake (page 26 of the user manual). If this doesn't cure the fault then try fitting a new CR123A battery. If the fault still remains then you can either compensate for the error by always using a longer shutter speed/wider aperture than recommended or you will need to send the meter for servicing.

Good luck, and please take a moment to rate my answer.

L-358 light meter doesn't change modes


Most probably the switch under the Mode button went faulty. Try to operate the button many times, sometimes it helps, if the culprit is corrosion or small debris inside the switch. If not, have the meter repaired at Seconic.
