Bronica 645 AE Prism. Flashing shutter speed inside?

Had this since ive had my AE prism, seems to be working though.

Changing aperture shooting the same subject, the shutter time changes, so its working.

If I select it on Manual mode, same, but inside there's a 4 thats always lit up on Auto or it flashes on Manual, I assume thats all the shutter speeds as I can see 1,2,4,8, then its all black so I guess 15 is next etc.

The meter inside works, as I get a red arrow on the left, I think that means its under exposed or over? As If I stop the lens down, the 4 disappears, then the red arrow appears. So I guess under exposing.

Not sure why 3/4 of the shutter speed range is blacked out, got it at a good price so not that bothered as the shutter speed changes as I said based on selecting different apertures.

Any idea if its repairable or anyones had experience with this before.

Either way its always showing 4 when it should be changing based on the light coming into the optics?

See photo and excuse my janky focus scratched screen (got a new one on the way )
