    Should I junk my meter?

    When I set the dial on something I expect it to read that function. Makes me wonder what, if any other functions are quirky.

    Read the manual? Does something need to be plugged in?

    See what Russell and them boys say, how old is it? It appears that the selector is offset internally or something. When you rotate the knob clockwise to MFD, does it read AAC? See where I'm gettin at? Either way, I'd be nervous with it too. I use the SC56, been a pretty good meter. Had to send it back once to get the selector replaced cause it started cracking but they just let me have a new one.

    ......batteries? haha

    Might email UEI. Few guys have those at work and like them. I have good luck emailing companies. Never hurts to ask. I would not trust it anymore though ya never know.

    It looks like the dial is off kilter. In any case if it needs to be fixed and it's in warranty we'll fix it or replace it for free. If it's out of warranty and needs some in depth repairs then the cost is $65 for an SC77. You can call us at 714 634 1844 and we'll walk you through the easy process.

    $65 bucks is a lot cheaper than a new meter.

    Sorry... At a glance it looked like a uei phoenix. I'm not use to fieldpiece we don't use them.

    Everything else shows normal when set to it.

    How long is a warranty typically?
