M6TTL LED failure

  1. The right triangular LED (the one indicating overexposure) on my M6
    TTL has failed to light. The other 2 LEDs are OK. Is this a common
    thing? Any remedies? Already tried new batteries without any success.

  2. Chances are small that a led fails. I think they have an average lifetime of over 100000 blinks...Anyway, I'd suggest to bring the camera to a professional service center, shouldn't be too expensive I think.
  3. Were you by any chance using a flash when this happens ?
    I'm not too sure if this will help, but its worth a try.
    Remove the batteries, set the shutter to any speed other than "B", cock the shutter, then in conjunction with a probe that shorts both the positive and negative contacts on the battery terminal, press the shutter. The idea is to ground the circuitry while its "open" to clear any abnormalities left behind.
