For me, the LED was dimly blinking, and the LCD was not displaying any numbers for 30 minutes before I unplugged it, spent 20 minutes reviewing my soldering, and tried again. It's the start-up that is the issue. I assume the "guts" get confused initially, with the capacitor drawing a bit of power. I think the cap needs to power up. That is why you let it power, unplug, and immediately plug it in again. Then, the cap is already charged, and not drawing what it was drawing when it was "cold".
