Pentax Spotmeter V light

Yes, it is very strange. And mine now is completely malfunctioning though the light bulb itself seems to works fine. I think it is one of the components, which I can't identify, but it is probably a kind of resistor.

And actually: did you ever replace the bulb? Because I'm looking for specifications about it. It is certainly very tiny and probably smaller than E5 screw thread?

Hello, is there anyone who has experience with this meter and knows if the 'illuminator' light of this meter is very bright or rather dim? I'm trying to fix the light in my version but it doesn't seem right to me.
Thanks!

Ok, I figured out that one has to remove the eyepiece retainer ring with a lens spanner in order to remove the back of this meter, the scale dial can stay as it is. Maybe useful information for other people who want to repair this meter. Also, behind the little plate with the serial number that is pasted and needs to be pried loose gently, one can find another little screw, that also has to be removed in order to get acces to the innards of this meter.

In addition to my first questions and after some consideration: does anyone know how to open the Pentax V spotmeter? Does the scale dial needs to be removed to access the naughty parts? thanks...

Hi,
I probably shouldn't ask this, but I have recently bought a Pentax V spotmeter for a bargain, and it seems to work, compared with some measurements (of which some on a gray card) with a Sekonic digital (reflected-) lightmeter, but the only thing that doesn't work is the light in it, enabling to see the needle in low light situations.
Hence my question: Does anyone has a service manual of this meter or know how to fix this in an easy way? (I suppose there is a little light bulb that needs replacement?)
Or: Is there someone who knows a reliable, and not too expensive repair(wo)man who can fix this? I live in Belgium, so someone in my country or The Netherlands perhaps, or even France or Germany, could be an option (depending on the shipping costs of course). I was thinking to send it to Richard Ritter in the US, but I guess that would cost as much as buying a completely working digital spotmeter perhaps...
Any information is welcome,
Thanks!

My parents bought me -as was common in those days in Belgium and being of a certain religion now looked upon with a less favorable eye- a Pentax P30 as a gift for the so-called 'confirmation' which was mostly a celebration of commerce and local shopkeepers (there were still local shopkeepers) in those days, but nevertheless, I have fond memories of it all. My pictures of the festive event however were a failure.

Yes, but isn't so that you learned much from the limitations of your analog days? And some young photographers nowadays even don't know anymore what an aperture ring is on a lens. I think that's horrifying, like forgetting that you can use pencil and paper to make a drawing.
