    hi
    I have recently bought a megger 1552 tester. it is in very good condition as it was just used as a back up. i have a slight problem with it though when trying to use it for testing continuity. basically i can only carry out one continuity test and then i have to turn the tester completely off and then back on again to test another time. is this normal or am i doing something wrong? im sure you dont have to do that especially for a £300 tester!
    thanks for any advice given

    well i am very confused. as soon as there is continuity the tester buzzes for about 2 seconds whilst flashing a battery sign in the corner and then stops buzzing. it doesent even give a reading!
    it cant be the batteries as i have just replaced them

    Send it away for a quote for repairs, how did yo pay for the tester? credit card? if so claim on it if it's a duff meter.

    Hi did the eBay seller describe it? Did they mention any faults, did it come with a calibration certificate?

    1552 are getting old now and spares are getting a bit scarce.

    Let's not jump to conclusions about the seller. It may have worked perfectly the last time it was used, which if it was a backup could have been some time ago.

    Meter do a turn around on repairs a default of £280 including calibration. Someone else might be able to fix it cheaper , but if they can’t they send it to Megger..........!

    you sure its on the right setting, continuity (ohms) is on second click down, continuity (buzzer) is on third click down.

    Mine is still working strong if you have put new batteries in it and the problem still persists check the fuse as it could have come loose in transit or blown if continuity is done on a live circuit.
