I recently learned a lesson that everyone has been preaching for years -CLEAN THE CONTACTS. I had a Konica C35 with an immoveable needle and after several days of thinking and worying I cleaned the battery contacts, in the camera and on the battery itself, even though they all looked spotless. A dab of acetone (fingernail polish remover) on a Q tip and the meter jumped into action. If you use a hearing aid battery as I do, be sure you notice which end is positive (+). They are the opposite of most batteries, the button end is negative (-). Good luck.
