I've recently updated my bench with a host of new Agilent equipment. So far, I'm enjoying myself but I have one oddity with the resistance setting on my new U1271A. If I short the leads in "Auto" mode, I'll measure roughly .15 ohms. Normal and expected behaviour. The interesting thing happens when I press the "Range" button. As I press the range button repeatedly to change ranges, I seem to retain a digit or two, meaning on the lowest range I'll see a reading of .15 ohms but with the leads short, I'll get a reading of "0.006" on the 3k range and "0.0002" on the 3 meg range. That means a short reads 200 ohms on the 3 meg range. I brought the unit to the dealer and we all scratched our heads at this behaviour. We then got the dealer's U1273A out of the show case and observed a similar behaviour. Are we missing something? Perhaps a certain setting cause this unexpected behaviour? Perhaps it requires a firmware update? Any advice would help as this behaviour causes me to tend to dought my readings when using this meter. Thanks in advance for any help you could provide.
