<h2>Extech Multimeter</h2> <strong><i>extech multimeter question by </i>: Is my multimeter broken?</strong> I have a new Extech MN26T digital multimeter with auto ranging. When I tried to take some resistance measurements the value displayed kept changing. For example, it would display 10.4, then 11.1 then 12.7, then 234.8, then 30.9, then 10.3. It would do this even if I would just touch the two probes together. I replaced the batteries but it did not help. I double checked the directions carefully, and I was doing everything correctly. <strong>extech multimeter best answer:</strong> <p><i>Answer by billrussell42</i><br/>Most multimeter probes are chrome plated and difficult to make a good connection. Press them together firmly with a lot of force, and see if you can get a consistent reading of zero ohms. It's also possible that you have a bad probe. See if you can borrow a set from someone. You do know that you can't measure resistance in a circuit unless all the power is
