Fluke 87 LCD display stucked in auto test

Discussion in 'Electronic Equipment' started by Valdemir Santos, Aug 9, 2013.

  1. Hi,
    My Fluke 87 multimeter is stucked in LCD auto test mode.
    I turn on multimeter, and all segments stays on.
    Is there any way to fix this ?
    Thanks

    That's what happens when you switch on with the "AutoHold" button pressed.
    Check for stuck buttons. It can easily happen if you've had the case off.

    Term is "stuckacated", not "stucked".

    I would recommend some percussive maintenance for the meter. Throw it onto
    the floor, that should fix it.

    I changed 9v battery, and it´s working fine again.
    Fluke 87 is unbreakable !
    Thanks

    Battery flag should have come on much earlier.
