    I have a multimeter Excel DT-9205(2) A. While measuring resistance in the circuit,the probe accidentally touched the positive voltage.Since then whenever I tried to switch on the multimeter , lcd display showed digit for a second and disappeared.On carefully examining the IC near the on/off switch is seemed to be burnt and the ic number is impossible to read .I will be very grateful if anybody can IMG_20180929_134222.jpg suggest the IC number and circuit diagram to repair my multimeter.Thanks in advance.

    Sir john douglas . . . .

    Related to damage from voltage misapplication a TL062 is most suspect.

    That units schematic shows two LM358 flat packs being used in the capacitor test function.
    A HARRIS version of a LM358 . . .17358 . . . is being used in a power supply function
    On your photo, one of the visible I.C.'s is showing a ST manufacturer, but the units critical identifier is being hidden by the right one, of the two GREEN poly capacitors, the visible info marking is probably being a code date, on the end, relating to the manufacturing date of that chip, suggesting, it possibly being the 35th week of 2005 or 2015.
    BUT . . . the closest IC to the power switch in the top corner is a TL062.with an associated C20 and D7 nearby.

    CLARIFIED SCHEMATIC . . . . . DT9205

    You do realise a new one is $15.00?

    In Cambodia $15.00 may be equivalent to a month's earnings. And this multimeter may be difficult to purchase online without a long wait for delivery to the OP's country. However, I doubt it can be economically repaired unless the components required can be obtained for free. Best to replace it if possible and move on with your life.

    Dear sir 73's de Edd
    The second ic is 324 a ST manufacturer near two green poly capacitor.Please I need the number of first ic near on /off switch (red encircled) which seems to be burnt out.Thanks sir IMG_20180929_134206.jpg IMG_20180929_132006sc.jpg

    Dear sir as you suggested closest IC near to power switch is TL 062 , BUT shows TL062 has total 8 pins (4 on each side) whereas the ic burnt ( encircled red ) has total 14 pins (7 on each side). So I think it is different ic .Hoping the answer from you.
