Pentax/Universal Thread/K-mount:



GOOD NEWS ABOUT BATTERIES When mercury batteries became unavailable many users retired their Spotmatics. The advent of Wein Aircells brought many back into use but these cells which work fine are expensive and short lived. We have found that a competent repairman can adjust Spotmatic meters to work on the 1.55 volts produced by alkaline cells making possible the use of standard watch batteries which are cheap and currently available. Most Spotmatics have a plastic battery chamber and an alkaline battery, installed with Positive side down, will bring your meter back to life. Lifting the contact on the bottom of the chamber slightly and carefully is sometimes necessary. If the battery chamber is metal it is necessary to insulate the battery diameter with a strip of tape or with a piece of yarn or plastic tube (easier than it sounds) There are many ways of doing this but it is no problem I have used Battery sizes SR- 936, 384, & 984 all of which fit snuggly into the battery chamber. Of course the voltage of the alkaline battery declines with use so it is best to check your meter readings regularly and replace the battery if there is a change. If you do not know of a repairman who will do this. (The local camera store is not the best place for this) I recommend the services of: Cameraworks,166 Sparrowbush Rd, Suite 5, Latham, NY 12110 Telephone 518 782 1503
