    Turn the shutter speed dial all the way CCW it should indicate "B" in the view finder.

    The upstream poster is perhaps thinking about Minolta SRT series cameras that did use ropes and pulleys in their meters.

    Well there is one string for the aperture setting, it goes from the coupling ring over to the dreaded FRE under the film speed dial.

    My bad! I know that the FM couple the shutter speed dial to the shutter via string but then the FE being electronic it doesn't have to.

    Thank you for the picture. I assume it may jumped 2 teeth since it is off by 2 stops.
    Can I access this unit just by opening the top cover? I don't want to mess around with left hand dial and the fragile FRE underneath it.

    Thank you all for the replies. Just an update, I finally had to let go this nice little gem since I found the base of the shutter speed dial slightly concave. It explains why the green needle and speed dial don't match (I don't think normal use will cause this). Might be dropped and landed on the dial. My concern is also about the FRE condition after such impact.
