    I have a power supply adapter which is meant to convert 230v into 5v.
    When i put a multi meter across the output I am getting a voltage that is changing between 1.7v and 2.2v roughly.
    What could be wrong??

    Attached is a picture of the adapter and some of the components

    load the adapter with a 220 / 100 ohms resistor resistor and measure. The adapter design may call for a minimum load to function.
