Hey guys,

So I was shooting yesterday, and noticed maybe my batteries needed to be replaced because the needle was sometimes only giving a reading as I held the shutter button half way. Next thing I know, I take a picture and the mirror locks up. Great. I assume it's just the battery and set it to mechanical 250th and release the mirror. Today I put in new V76px's in and... nothing. The meter doesn't respond at all and only the M250 fires. Now as I'm writing this, I put the batteries in and out a few times and got it to come back to life. Took them out again, and nothing for another couple tries until I brought it back again. Now I'm just going to leave them in there as is now that the camera is back alive, but what could this be? Electronic contacts in the bottom, meter issue?

Thanks
