    repairing a soligor spot III

    Hi all,
    So I dropped my Soligor Spot II this weekend at the beach, and now the needle doesn't want to move past 2EV. It actually wiggles a bit between 0 and 2, but not much. I put in a fresh battery, still no dice.

    Any tips on how I might get this fixed for a reasonable price?

    thanks,
    allan

    Hi Kaiyen,

    You might get a hold of Maymia USA, they do repairs on the Sekonic meters, so they might be able to work on this one as well, worth a shot..

    i have a soligor spot sensor that broke similarly to yours. dropped it on the floor, needle no longer moved. I sent it to Ritter and he was able to fix it, calibrate it, and return ship it insured for $92USD. he got back to me in a week, and i had the meter less than 2 weeks after i sent it. i highly recommend him. his customer service could use a little improvement, but when there are only a few places in the country that fix these little gems I guess he doesn't have a lot of competition. (i just had this done about 3 weeks ago) feel free to email or pm with any questions.

    Cool! I looked over his site and will give him a call. I think $92 all in would be fine. I got the meter at a steal so I don't nec. want to spend too much on it. But we'll see.
