If it only displays OL when in the Volts or Continuity measuring ranges and not when selecting other functions such as capacitance or current then as you say the meter has a fault with these two functions.
You say that “I have written them a bunch of times and to voltcraft but to no avail... “.
I’m not sure if you mean that you just wanted to get technical advice from them or not but as there is a 3 year Voltcraft manufacturer’s warranty on the meter and if the warranty period is still valid I suggest that you contact Conrad about claiming a manufacturer’s warranty repair or replacement.
If I am reading it correctly there is also a 2 year guarantee by Conrad on their “electronic items” so you should be covered either way if the meter is less than 2 years old.
It seems to say OL and need power cycle even with no probes attached or both probes attached - even when connected to each other or the same wire.
is there anything I can try ?
Hi @cristianan ,
What is the make and model number of the meter?
It’s a Voltcraft R-200 I purchased from Conrad Electronic
I have written them a bunch of times and to voltcraft but to no avail...
OL does not mean "Over Load", it means "Open Loop". The meter is fine, it is an open circuit, meaning it has no voltage to measure.l
when I make lighting cable megger test display show OL, what does mean OL?
