I used an EL and a GL until they had a similar problem. There are two meters in the camera, not one. One operates the diaphragm and the other the visible needle. One of yours has died. I was never able to get this repaired even before the "D" days. SInce the meter operating the diaphragm is working, I suggest you cotinue to use the camera, even though it is disconcerting to nt see the needle move.
