U1252B DC Measuement Problem

Question asked by jimstockel on Jan 24, 2012
Our new U1252B DMM has an odd "feature".  When you select the DC voltage measurement mode, the meter seems to have a voltage threshold.  If the voltage is less than about 9 or 10 volts, it displays 0.0000.  Above that threshold it displays the correct voltage.  If you press the Range button to select a fixed range, when it gets to 00.000 it no longer appears to have a threshold.  Is this truly a "feature" or a defect?  If it is a feature, how do you defeat it?  If anyone has seen this behaviour before or has any ideas I would appreciate if you could respond.  Thanks!!
