Leds act so crazy on pentax me super

Hi all

I own a pentax me super. the problem I have with it is when you set the camera to auto and set up the camera lights will operate from 1/2000 to 1/30. they then stop from 1/15 to 2 there will be no active led lights so you cant set up at these setting. the leds do resume from 1 to 4s. It is the same story on M mode. Help please.

Kind regards Anthony

Welcome Anthony!

When was the last time you replaced the batteries? I'm wondering if they are getting low.

If I remember correctly the LEDS are supposed to flicker strangely if the battery is low.

Try a new battery, if it works, brilliant.
If not, oh well, you've wasted $2 trying.
