Pete,this is the code for older Leica M8, and M9 and this code does NOT work for M240 and M246.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
no need to chat on phone or web; instructions as provided would be fine, but these are incorrect and don't work for M240/M246
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Hi Pete,If you don't know yourself, and don't know someone who themselves knows (like a Leica technician in Germany or at Leica USA) and don't have access to the Leica Service Manuals (not on web that I can see) you are probably not going to figure this out. So not wasting your time or mine a good goal. Just trying to save you time if you don't have a clear shot at the answer to this one.
