Gossen Lunasix 3 Light meter

Discussion in 'UK Photography' started by Hampshire man, Jan 9, 2004.

  1. I was about to sell my little used Lunasix 3 when I noticed that the
    indicator rings were moving independently of the dial. I'm hoping that the
    cause is fairly obvious once I get the ring apart. Which brings me to my
    question. Has anybody ever taken one of these apart? What is the best way
    to do it, is it a reasonable thing to attempt to fix at home. All advice
    gratefully accepted.

    Cheers

    Sorry, no direct answer here. I've taken my Profisix (Lunasix Pro)
    apart a couple of weeks ago, because it had a short circuit just before
    I wanted to go on vacation. I'd say, risk opening it! I don't think
    the Lunasix 3 will be more complicated. If it's like the Profisix,
    unscrew the one screw on the back of the light meter and remove the tin
    plate. Then you can remove the elecronics by unscrewing four more
    screws that hold the curcuit board in place. After that, you can loosen
    the indicator rings.

    I can't promise that it'll work or be easy. But if you send the meter
    to Gossen for repair, that will most probably cost more than what you
    get for it on eBay.
    If you want to be on the safe side, call Gossen first and ask them.
    They are very friendly and willing to help. I've called them before I
    took the Profisix apart, and the guy on the phone gave me detailed
    instructions and was very patient. (That's what I call good customer
    service!)
    Unfortunately, they're in Germany and I don't know if they speak
    English (but I suppose so). Get the phone number from
    http://www.gossen-photo.de/english/

    Cheers
