Mamiya 7 II Problem.
I used my Mamiya 7 II today outdoors in sunny conditions and the `LT` keeps blinking in the viewfinder despite bright lighting conditions. The battery is fresh and the red warning light isn`t blinking, so the battery power seems to be OK. This was with `AEL` selected.
When I tried the manual mode, it shows the selected shutter speeds, but doesn`t indicate if the right one is selected for correct exposure. The `LT` keeps blinking though.
The Camera has worked fine up until now, any ideas what the problem is?:confused:
Hmm.. I wonder of something is blocking the metering sensor or if the contacts between lens and body need to be cleaned. You might withdraw the darkslide and open the back and do a B exposure and see if that works fine.
I tried cleaning the contacts on the lens and Camera, but it`s still not working properly.
Does anyone know of a good Camera repairer who specialises in Mamiya Cameras in the UK?
Thanks for the link Rob. I should have thought of that.

Hope it helps.
