Question about Photography
I have not used by FTB for several years and now my daughterneeds to use it for a hi school photo class. The meter wasworking fine to start with but after removing old film from who knowshow long ago, the aperture needle will not move from the lower cornerwhen adjusting f-stops. I replaced the battery to make sure theproblem wasn't there and loaded fresh film. Still the apertureneedle doesn't move. I have tried with different lenses (to besure that i didn't have a damaged one) still no difference. What am I missing????
I had the same problem with this camera, I bought a new battery, and the meter was not working. I took the battery out for 30 minutes, then I installed it. I then took the lens off, carefully lifted the mirror up and down on my own, and it began to work on its own.
Besides that, I didn't do anything else.

The battery only powers the meter needle. The aperture match needle is controlled by the lever that is to the right of the mirror box. You can see it with the lens off while looking at the mount. It may be bent or damaged.
