MastTech MS8229 beeps all the time

Hi I own a MS8229 multimeter for a few years now. It works fairly well except the one (super annoying) thing it does is it beeps whenever it is turned to a current/voltage/resistance measurement. It doesn't matter if the probes are plugged in or not. The beep differs (deeper beep) if the probes aren't plugged in but then it's a high pitched beep when they are removed. The beep goes away if I change it measure lux/audio, etc…

So wondering how/if this can be debugged. I'm also thinking to disconnect the speaker as it's terribly loud. Is there a suggestion one what I can do to fix this? I'm thinking of clipping the speaker but that seems like a worst-case scenario. I'd hate to throw this device away.

Try opening and cleaning it up thoroughly. If you haven’t done it in some time, corrosion maybe causing current fluctuations, which makes the meter beep or buzz.

The contacts in the unfused port might be touching or shorted by something inside. I would use gently use a wooden chopstick to see if you can separate the contacts inside the port and see if that helps. I had this recently after cleaning my multimeter and accidentally nudged the contacts together.
