Pentax Spotmatic Meter Help


I just purchased a Pentax Spotmatic today and the meter is behaving incorrectly. I made the mistake of putting in a new battery backwards (plus side pointing outward). The needle moves up and down and seems to meter correctly but just in the opposite direction.

After realizing that something was wrong, I flipped the battery (plus side pointing inward). Now the meter doesn't respond at all. What have I done? bang:

Olympus XA, Infinity Stylus and 35 SP, Konica Auto S2, Wards am521, Ansco Super Memar, Minolta Hi-Matic E, Minolta XD5, Pentax Spotmatic and KV, Ricoh Diacord L, Mamiya C22, Bronica SQA, mini Crown Graphic, Watson 8x10 and Kodak Vigilant six-20
