    Minolta Hi-Matic G -no meter?

    I just picked up a minolta Hi-Matic G.
    Its a little focus-scale camera similar to an olympus trip.
    Its all automatic exposure.

    I tried a 1.5V and a 1.3V zinc battery and I havent been able to get the meter working.

    Anyone have any tips on getting the meter working?
    Go not to the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.

    I had a similar problem with my Hi-Matic G when I first got it, but then I realized that the meter is VERY sensitive to voltage. After adding in a diode it started working again, but before that it wouldn't work with a 1.5v.

    Hello;
    Check the battery compartment and the wires. Have found that corrosion will travel up the wires and need a replacement. Steven.
