|1.The pointer does not deflect.(=Unable to measure.)
|Check the continuity of test leads.If there is a break, replace the faulty test lead.How to check: Set to the resistance range and short the test leads.
|2.Unable to measure the resistance.
|Check the battery voltage. If the voltage is low, replace the batteries.Change it to a new battery.
|3.The readings fluctuate when measuring current.
|Check if the jaws are closed properly. If no, close the jaws properly.Check if an object stick to the jaw tips.If yes, remove the oject from the jaw tips.
|4.The transformer jaws beat when measuring large current.
|This is normal condition.
|5.The pointer moves abnormally. (For Analog Only)
|The cover over the pointer may be electrized. Wipe the cover with the cloth or coat the cover with an anti-electrostatic agent or the detergent diluted with water.
|6.The pointer does not move to zero even by the zero ohm adjustment knob. (For Analog Only)
|Check the battery voltage. If the voltage is low, change it to a new battery.The cover over the pointer may be electrized. Wipe the cover with the cloth or apply the antistatic additives or the detergent diluted with water.
|7.When the power is turned on, nothing is displayed in the LCD. (For Digital Only)
|Check if the batteries are set appropriately.Set the batteries propoerly.Check if the battery is exhausted. If yes, replace with new batteries.
|8.When the range is set to DC voltage, the readings vary although measuring nothing. (For Digital Only)
|This is normal condition.DC value varies by the influence of noise.
|9.The readings remain displayed in the LCD. (For Digital Only)
|Check if the data hold switch remains on. Turn off the data hold switch. Check if the peak hold switch remains on.Turn off the peak hold switch.
