Dear all, I hope I will find an answer in this community. Ive got a Nikon F3HP with problems. This is not the 1st time I am fixing a camera but now I cannot find the solution. I have checked: - all shutter speed are switchable and seems to be accurate - film counter works as it should: the 1st three shot are limited to 1/80 speed as in the manual written - FRE is cleaned. Wirings and solderings are OK. AI coupling from F-mount is OK, wire connection exists. - mirror mechanism and shutter OK Malfunction: - the light meter seems to be completely out of its order. In Auto mode in LCD is -8- visible. This values doesnt change if the light source is changing (from complete darknes thru lens cap thru pointing to harsh sky) - the -8- value stays if lens aperture is changed (from F1.8 - F22), no change in the metering read out - in Manual mode the shutter speeds are correctly displayed but the "-" sign is visible in every condition. Current situation: in the repair manual there is only one time mentioned this sympthom with checking the film counter. I dont know how to proceed further. Has anyone experience with this issue? Thanks in advance!
