Multimeter Broken

by Aikifuku on Sat Nov 24, 2012 8:54 pm

Hello,

I believe this is the correct place to ask this question. If not please redirect me and apologies in advance. :-)

I just received adafruit's beginner's electronics package. Super happy with it and had a lot of fun learning how to solder the protoshield together on the Arduino package I also just received. However, the MASTECH (MAS830) multimeter that was sent now continuously buzzes when using the continuity test setting. It was not doing this yesterday so I believe it is broken, it used to only buzz when the circuit was completed like it is supposed to. I have not dropped it or anything and it is only a week old. Is there a way to get it replaced through Adafruit?

Thanks in advance!

So it buzzes as soon as you turn the dial to the continuity test? Even with the leads unplugged?

That is correct. With the jumpers disconnected the meter buzzes and will not stop as soon as it is turned to the continuity test setting. Anything I can do to fix this?

Thanks for the reply.
