I have an OM1 body that a friend sent me from Europe. It was supposed to be a birthday present with a working meter to replace the OM1 I currently have with a totally caput meter. At first I thought that the meter was responsive but then I realized that it wasnt. The needle moves with changes in light, and it moves with the film-speed dial... but is completely unresponsive to aperture and shutter-speed changes. I even went out and bought a new 8-pack of batteries to make sure it wasn't my battery... and yup... same thing. My friend claims that he studiously checked the meter to make sure it in fact worked, was responsive to all the controls, and even tested it against another camera. Is it possible that there is a mechanical linkage that came unattached in shipment, or is it likely that the meter is fried? I'm pretty bummed... I know have literally a STACK of OM1 and OM2 bodies with busted meters... and I'm starting to think that I am just cursed and the gods are trying to tell me something. Even the hand-held meter I bought as a back-up for all these busted bodies is finicky and doesn't always read properly. Any ideas?
