Non Functioning multi-meter

by voltajeff on Fri Jun 18, 2010 10:55 am

I purchased 2 multi-meters. 1 seems to work properly, the other doesn't.

I set them up the exact same way to test DC Voltage. I get the correct reading off one and no reading off the other.

Any suggestions on what might be wrong with the non-working one?

Thanks,

Can't see much from the pictures. How is it connected and what are you trying to measure?
Have you put fresh batteries in the second unit?
What do you see when you set it to measure voltage and touch the probe-tips together?
