That radio uses the same meter as used int the Omni V, VI and Paragon. They are known for this issue.

I generally am able to fix them by removing from the radio and peeling the front off (really easy on this meter). I then use Avery small screwdriver (eyeglass repair type) to turn the front pivot screw 1/4 turn CCW (or less, just enough to get smooth movement).

Do this in a really clean spot and work on the table with a clean white towel laid out as a clean shield. You don’t want to get any dust bunnies in there, especially magnetic ones.
