Default Re: Hitachi LE55A6R9A - No backlight

Okay update.

The meter is set up like this, just because I want to make sure I'm not being silly.

When I ground it, then press deep in the sockets on the actual lines that lead to the LED I get a really small reading for a split second, then nothing. At the "top" of both nearby diodes, at this setting, I get wildly, randomly fluctuating readings. Nothing at all like the video. On the "bottom" leg I get nothing as well.

On the actual points in the 'sockets' I definitely make contact, I can feel it scrape the metal and I get an *extremely* brief response from the meter, but then it drops to zero immediately.

Am I doing this wrong? Do I need a better meter? The 200milliamp for the red wire doesn't seem to read as "well," for lack of a less stupid sounding way of putting it.


I need to brush up on the basics for sure. Sorry for the silly questions, I just want to make sure I'm doing it correctly.
