    I don't hear anything at all, and yes, I put the batteries in correctly.
    Guess its back to my (almost as good) olympus stylus epic. It also has a nice spotmeter.

    Did you put in LR44 or SR44 batteries? It can make a difference.

    Unfortunately XAs can be quite fragile.
    Fortunately as someone else said, they're plentiful and cheap.

    First off, I think the XA might be toast. Or it might need to be disassembled and cleaned thoroughly.

    At the least, I think it will require some disassembly for a correct diagnosis.

    Second, go out and buy a used light meter. There is no need to use a second camera as a light meter.

    Unfortunately, XAs aren't really that cheap anymore if they're in good condition. If you're looking for a lightmeter cam, I'd also recommend the Minox 35 GT. I picked mine up in like new condition with a nice Sunpak flash and all the Skylight/ND proprietary filters for under $30. It's got a nice little match needle aperture priority (but scale focus) system.
