"Several conditions might be caused the light meter doesnt work such as : due its age, copper wire inside light meter is coated by rush, broken copper wire etc. If you are analog lover is so sad to facing this condition. After several experiments I found some way to fix and bring the light meter back to normal"





I did this to burn corrosion out as "Aquadome said". If you applied directly install LR44 battery might be it doesn't work because the cooper wire is coated by rush.

Well you should study about electrical first and go deeper about material specification and go deeper about fouling and corrosion , then you will find why i use higher battery capacity. :cool:

I studied mechanical engineering for my bachelor degree and my master degree. light meter has mechanical principle like coil. Inside of light meter there are copper wire which is can rush due its age. (not only metal has rush, rush in copper and aluminum has green color). I use principle when i fix my motor bike, to check the spark in good condition or not i applied this method. And in my opinion light meter has same characteristics.

Asahi Pentax is one of the famous brand camera from Japan beside Nikon, Canon, and Minolta. Great built in body and its looks like samurai warrior from Japan. But nowadays I often found Asahi Pentax camera in junk store or second hand camera store in dead light meter condition. Several conditions might be caused the light meter doesn’t work such as : due its age, copper wire inside light meter is coated by rush, broken copper wire etc. If you are analog lover is so sad to facing this condition. After several experiments I found some way to fix and bring the light meter back to normal. This method Couldn't fix your light meter if the copper wire inside the light meter is broken.

What equipment you may need?
  • Single battery which has capacity 1.5Volt

  • wires

  • Tape

  • Scissor

Step by step
  • Open battery cap chamber in bottom plate of you camera.

  • After that you will find 2 contact surfaces. One is for negative pole, and second one is for positive pole.

  • Remove isolator of your wires until you see copper wire.

  • Take your battery and install the wire in both side pole of you battery using tape.

Battery by Marlon Managi, on Flickr
  • Before you apply to using battery and wire please make sure you light meter switch is on position.

  • This is the IMPORTANT step you should pay attention. After you install the wire with battery now get ready for this part. Take the wire from positive pole from you battery put it on bottom plate(near by the hole) and take the wire form negative pole and RUBBING in surface area inside battery chamber, DO NOT Allowed the wire contact for long time to avoid overload circuit.

applied by Marlon Managi, on Flickr
  • Be careful do not MISPLACED between positive pole and negate pole. Because this camera using DC circuit, to avoid short circuit.

And after those steps are applied install small battery (watch battery or LR44 battery) and check your light meter. Hope it becoming normal and work properly.


Best Regards, Marlon

NOTE : You applied this method with your OWN RISK.
