Hi Shai, the correct name is LX. The font adopted for the name seems like I and L but indeed it's LX. Your problem has to do with batteries. From X to 2000 the LX shutter is mechanically controlled while from 60 down to 4 S or longer it is electronically controlled. Put a pair of fresh SR-44 to test it.
