A friend just gave me a Simpson 360-2 multimeter, it looks good but has a few issues internally. There's a problem with the input circuit (doesn't read on any function or scale) and while there is no dead short, the batteries are getting EXTREMELY hot. Does anyone have any troubleshooting experience with this meter or know of anybody who will repair them at a reasonable price?
Thanks,
Dave

Batteries were in correctly. Think it was a bad battery, only one got hot and a few days later it began to leak. I haven't had a chance to dig in to it too deep, but there is a problem with the meter. Got the schematic, now all I need is a little time.

Sounds like maybe you have at least some of the batteries in backwards?

Found that the previous owner put in the wrong value fuses. Haven't tracked it down yet, but I'm guessing there is a shorted transistor. Only shows up when voltage is applied.

How's the meter coming?
I've had Alkaline batteries fail
MOst recently, two RS D Alkaline batteries in my flashlight.
One battery bulged, and Positive enf fell off.
Other bulged, and, leaked. They were less than a year old.

Haven't found my round tuit yet. I had another battery failure a few days ago, same brand that I had in the Simpson... guess that's what I get for buying cheap batteries.
