Hello. Anyone know how to fix the meter in a Sears KS500? I have place fresh bateries in the camera but the needle does not respond to sunlight or changes in ligh. I have tested the battery in another camera and confirmed that it is good.

there are three different possibilities. remove three screws, take off bottom cover. remove three screws of battery holder, lift to see if the battery wire has corroded or broken off. solve by extending wire and resoldering. the next involves removing the top cover to see if the meter coil is dead,if this is the case it needs to be replaced, or there is a broken lead somewhere. usually it is cause no. 1.
The Nikon F2 for me is the best mechanical film camera ever produced. The only electrical or battery- dependent part is its metering. Meaning to say, even without batteries, the F2 should work and take pictures on all shutter speeds. Most probably, the F2 that you bought has a non-working photomic meter finder due to a defective ring resistor, a part that is usually the first thing that would fail on this camera. What, then, are your options? One, have the meter fixed by a competent manual camera technician. Two, buy a working Photomic finder and replace what you have. Three, buy or use a handheld meter. Four (the least expensive), use the sunny 16 rule. As added reference, here's a link that might help enlighten you more about how the F2 metering works: http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/hardwares/classics/nikonf2/prisms/dp11/index.htm
your cellular service provider and request Tech Support assistance.
They will provide you with a Master Unlock Code for your phone. After
entering it, you can then change the PIN to one you'll remember.
If you need the code to unlock your phone to use with another service provider, your best bet is eBay. Most unlock codes can be purchased for under $1.00.
We cannot provide Security codes on FixYa if you've forgotten your PIN as we have no way to verify the ownership of your phone. Calling your service provider and requesting tech support assistance is the best way and its free.
Please time the beeps.Most likely the phone beeps after every minute.If I am right that means that there's nothing wrong with your phone.
The beep is like a time keeper.Sort of like trying to remind you that the 1st minute is up, then the second and so on...
Hope it helps.
Unscrew the silver ring from around the dial face. Lift off the clear cover. Gently pull the needle off the pin. Re-align needle. Gently push the needle back on to the pin taking care not to push to hard or bend the needle. I hope this corrects your problem.
I have the same problem on my '05 monster 620. I hear it's very common.
Upon calling my trustworthy mechanic (not the dealer), he informs me this is quite common. The glue holding the needles in place is apparently not the greatest, and moisture inside the instrument panel screws it all up.
He recommended I take an engine speed meter, take apart the instrument panel, and glue the needle back in place at the appropriate reading for the engine speed. I haven't tried to do this yet as the rainy season just started, and I don't have a garage :/
Let me know if you have any success in this regard as I'm very interested in hearing about it.
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.
