Question about the light meter of the Cosina CT-1A (or it's many clones)

I was surprised that mine had been in storage for a couple of years, in a camera bag, but had a tiny bit of corrosion on the battery cover that was preventing the meter from working at all. It wasn't really visible until you held it up to the light at the right angle. A gentle scraping-off restored the connection to the fresh batteries & away I went. But I'm putting some tape over the battery cover to prevent that slow corrosion forming again - you're right about the weather sealing. And a non-functioning meter may be simply a product of a few nanometers of 'rust.' BTW, the CT1G (mine) is only on as long as the shutter is half-depressed, has been that way since day dot.
