I know many don't like cheap meters but I'm trying to figure out if my LED testing issue is user error. I've set the tester to diodes and ensured correct polarity of the LED across the meter leads but I do not get anything out of the LED (Known good). Looking at the manual for this meter it does not mention a forward voltage only the below info. I do not have another meter to see if there is any voltage/current out of the leads with the meter in this mode. The meter is powered by 3 AAA batteries.
Thanks much3.2.13 Diode Test
displaying approximate forward voltage of diode
Forward DC current ~1mA -
Reversed DC voltage ~1.5V
