Multimeter problem
Hi,

For some odd reason, my cheapo multimeter is not showing accurate results. Resistance is more when I put it across resistor. Someone knows a reason?

RE: Multimeter problem
There can be many reasons why it might show incorrect values. Some of the probable reasons are:
1. Check the multimeter battery if it is low
2. Check the leads if there is breakage
3. Did you check AC current when the knob was in DC?

It might have really been true that the multimeter is dead. But just reconfirm before you throw.
