    You have two choices: [No, I don't think you've messed up any of the settings. To check it, though, advance the film. This also cocks the shutter. See if the light meter has come to life.]

    1. Take the camera to a repair shop.

    2. Forget the camera's light meter and get a separate light meter.

    Hi Jim, don't forget to make the proper introduction here and address the Pentax ME question in the proper forum. ;) (sometime I wish I had magical powers to move threads like this to the proper forum...:( )

    When you checked the batteries you mean you checked the batteries outside of the camera? If so, make sure you insert the batteries with the correct polarity in place. Also, even if the batteries checked ok, they might not have enough juice to power the meter. Try a new set of batteries. Let me know if the meter comes alive after these tests and if not I'll try to sort things out with you in this_forum.

    Other than that, welocome to TPF. :D
