    You might want to replace the 9 volt battery located in the compartment in the bottom corner of the back of the tuner.

    Wait........ there's a 9v battery in them. For the meter operation? REALLY?

    Yes. I have a Nye Viking MB-V tuner which had the same problem, and changing the 9 volt battery in the back fixed the problem.

    :D Now, that was easy. I wish all my problems were such. ;)

    Thanks for making my night. I love the easy fixes. Hopefully the OP notices....

    Some things aren't as easy as they may appear. The battery powers the meter lights, not the meters. At least in the case of mine and it's schematic. I've used this tuner for decades without a battery or other 9 v source.

    Can't assume they weren't changed somewhere in their production run.

    BTW, the good people at Palstar sent me the small signal diodes -- gratis. They are NOT as some make them out to be!
    And I like their products! :)
