Shorting the probes has no effect. :-( Oddly enough, it only does then
when you have AC+DC (which was apparently the default) or just AC selected.
If you select DC only then it seems fine. OTOH, if you select only AC
current, it does the countdown thing, only slightly differently (it takes
the same amount of time to get down near zero, it just updates the display
several times/second instead of once every couple of seconds). Strange. I
wish someone else had one and could tell me there experience.
On a uA scale on AC, it could easily be induced into it from local
See if it does it without the leads attached. If not, try it with
the leads twisted.
Maybe you have a little electric eel in you.
