    Anyone have any idea on how to re-wire a cds meter on a rank aldis? Wires have come loose and its difficult to see where they came from.

    Thanks,

    It'll depend on what the meter actually is. Rank used the Rank Aldis name on imported Japanese items like cameras as well as some British made projectors etc. I know if I took something like a CDS meter/camera to a good electronics person they'd easily spot where the wires should go.

    I assume it's your re-badged Mamiya RF camera :D Do a Google search to identify the Mamiya model no there may be a repair manual on line.

    Ian,

    You assume correct, I'll do a quick search as you suggest and see what comes up.

    Thanks
