Mike, be careful with that shutter speed modification. It will only work if the meter is completely disabled. Remember that the "Flash" setting is not a manual override! If the meter is operating, it will still control the aperture, even in the "Flash" setting. So your exposure will invariably be wrong if you manually override the shutter speed to 1/200sec. That mod might be a good idea if the cell/meter has really crapped out. But I don't believe that is a very likely failure.
