    I loaned out my multimeter and it came back fried. I large resistor -(R30)- on the bottom right side just above the battery is fried. It is too damaged to determine its value. If anyone has one and can tell me what resistor I need to replace it with, I would appreciate it greatly. I really don't want to drop another c-note on a new multimeter.

    Most likely a current shunt, and also likely a high precision, low value resistor.
