Thanks for the replies.
I think you have understood only too well what I meant! But, just to make absolutely certain, here is the problem:
Shutter speeds 1000; 125; 60; 30;15; 8 are all displayed correctly.
Shutter speeds 250 and 500 are not in that the 2 is only partly displayed and the same for the 5 and yet 125 i.e. the 1 is perfect when seen on the LCD! The 2 of 2000 also is only partly displayed. Notice, it is all the same column i.e. right next to the M/+ sign.
Could this be a fault in a single column of the LCD (so to speak) and that is all?
Appreciate your help.
PS: The meter is dead on.
