    Hi,

    I borrowed a Canon F1 (N) when you look through the viewfinder there is a meter on the right side that show the aperture, battery voltage and is also used for matched needle operation. It was there for a while and now it’s gone. No matter what configuration I put the camera in, I can’t get them back.

    I even tried different lenses. The battery is fine; I checked it with a volt/ohm meter. I want to use this camera on a trip to Alaska.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Barry

    That camera has interchangable view finders. Sounds like you have an AE finder on it maybe the view finder is loose.

    try cleaning the battery contacts. That helps sometimes.
