    The 'white ones' are nothing more than new inserts in an old meter that can be bought from Gamma-ray Graphics. Bought them from him before.

    The meters themselves can also be fixed if they are stuck. But don't try it unless you watch a few youtube videos on the do's and don'ts - first. You only get one shot.

    I used to have a PDC that did the stuck needle thing - so I redid the graphic - and called it my PITA meter.

    Shoot I used to have some "grainy" (640 X 480) graphics of the re-do.

    The needles - "scraped" the decal - like it had a bubble. So that is why the rework.

    Did you check the 2000? These things used those "grain of wheat" bulbs that can heat up like a filament of a tube. Has been known to soften plastic and even loosen the decals backing from the diffuser and backplate.
