Broken MAS830 MultiMeter

by rsofia on Sun Feb 17, 2013 5:06 pm

I'm having trouble with the MAS830. Everything works except for the continuity test and testing resistance. It beeps even when probes aren't touching. Resistance test always shows -1 (over) even when the probes aren't touching.

I can test Voltage and Current, but not continuity. Someone else on the forums were having the same problem not too long ago: viewtopic.php?f=44&t=34958&p=172613&hilit=mas830#p172613

I was asked to re-post by support@adafruit, Thanks!
