    No matter what i test i just get 000 as result.
    I changed the test leads too but didnt help.

    Any ideas how to fix this?

    Are the other ranges the same? Does the display show open circuit on 200ohms range and about zero when you short the leads out? Does the display ever update?

    It looks faulty to me, but as you have to open the meter up to fit the battery perhaps you should have a quick look around inside and look for a bad solder joint as it shouldn't invalidate the warranty (normal accepted operational procedure)

    This is what i get for 200ohm:

    The display refreshes, when i put the meter to DCA the number keeps changing all the time. Like here:

    I guess this isnt normal?
    I dont know anything about these multimeters, just wanted some cheap one to check my battery voltages.

    i'm sure that probes are ok as we can see
    i'm sure that fuse is ok because of above
    it's dead and have to be replaced by DX

    Try measuring it on a normal battery, AA or AAA, that way it will rule out the possibility that the batterys protection circuit has kicked in and shut the battery down, as that would give 0volts.

    You just made another post where you show it working!!
