I forgot about that mode. Mine is still in bits at the moment. So much to shoot with, so little time. Got a day off next week, so will do some then.

There was an old Vivitar flash in with the Minolta stuff I bought last week. I had to take a hammer and screwdriver to chisel the battery compartment cover off. Never seen anything so bad before and wish I'd taken a photo. 4 batteries all crystallised and fused together in a block, Once I'd prised them out with needlenose pliers, I saw they were Duracells with a 1994 expiry date. I don't know if I can be bothered attempting to clean it out.

I probably wouldn't bother, flashes are ten a penny and it sounds pretty bad. You might be able to pick up another cheap or if you really want to use it or its rare/valuable then go for it.

They are but not all have working flash tubes! Am biding on this BTW 273271454604
I've also sent off for a USB "on the go" adapter for 99p delivered and claiming not to be some Chinese knockoff. Hopefully this will mean I can connect my daughter's Fuji F11 to an Android tablet and she can use it (easily) as a photo album. This has always been the problem with digital, how to store and view them easily. I was thinking of chopping in her camera for one with a viewfinder but this may be a good solution, as the camera itself is good. I have had to increase the screen to max brightness to cope with sunny days, but it's not so easy to see what's going on with any subtlety, and reviewing pictures isn't a lot of fun as they're relatively small and don't look good even if they are.

I have found out what is wrong with my latest K1000s meter, the wire has come off the battery holder. I tried trimming the wire back to resolder but it keeps snapping. Can't get any further with it as it is running out of length. It would be a top plate off job to fix.

That was the problem with my K1000 too but luckily there was a littlebit of play and I managed to resolder it. Does the wire go to the top or does it attach to another circuit in the bottom? Can't remember.

I think it runs alongside the mirror box and under the top plate. It will have to be a sunny 16 job until I can sus a repair.

I think I have the repair manual somewhere if it's any use.

I was hoping there would be a YouTube video but I cannot see one. From what I can read, it's a top plate off job, but the battery holder tab is stainless steel.
