Questions on MAS830 multimeter

by vwyodapink on Tue Apr 13, 2010 1:17 pm

I just received one of the basic multimeters that is for sale on the site. I was trying to test it out and I can not seem to get it to work. I have even followed the multimeter tutorial listed on ladyada's site incase I forgot the correct way to use it. The only thing I can get it to do is make a test sound but only when i connect the ground wire to a pos and the pos wire to a neg. I have tried basic battery tests running it exactly as stated in the tutorial and I can get no readings off of batteries, wal warts or anything. Can someone please give me some pointers as to whats going on. Also I did remove the little plastic tip coverings as well just incase someone might think I forgot that part. Please let me know any further information needed to help me out. Thanks for your time

make sure you have the multimeter in the right setting. that the plugs are in properly. perhaps it needs a new battery so try replacing it

OK wow sorry I feel like a tool now there was a hold button that was on that I did not realize. Sorry about that, working fine now :P Thought I had checked everything like that already.

Thanks for your site and help!!!
