    Hi guys and girls,

    I am having a slight issue with my multi meter,

    its display has randomly flickered whilst on voltage then the continuity buzzer just went off.. and the screen crashed.

    I have a feeling it's shorted internally due to the strange behaviour, when I use the rotary to turn it off then back on it resets...
    I must also say I haven't had it calibrated since I first got it three years ago.

    Anyone had a similar issue?.

    Cheers,
    HW

    Hey bud,

    I've already tried this, still does the same thing only now when I move the rotary switch from AC Volts to ohms/continuity it crashes again....

    I don't want to disturb it by opening it up but think that's the only choice right now

    Out of interest why haven't you had it calibrated?

    If it hasn't been used much then there may be dust/dirt in the rotary contacts. Have you tried rotating the dial a number of times to wear away any surface grime? Can you get into it with some contact spray?
    Murdoch - do you have your multimeter calibrated? MFT yes but multimeter?

    Sounds like it's more than a simple fix. If you're opening it up then that's electronics and way above my "pay grade". Good luck.

    Before you start stripping it down, Fluke are excellent with warranties. I know my fluke 177 has a lifetime coverage.
