Thanks, hopefully this will be addressed in later firmware revisions.
Also as per a previous poster my TC66c failed to restart with only the screen illuminating with a dull glow.
Could get it to boot into the bootloader but and it would talk to the PC via a cable, but it would not measure any voltages or current.
After quite a few reboots it surprisingly came back to life (thank God).

Oh well, the little unit failed to come on again.
Fun while it lasted.

Same story here. This is a great meter with some unfortunate durability problems. To date I have purchased three. I don’t use them for anything crazy; at worst there might be the full weight of another tester on the USB-C connector, but at the moment only one of mine still works. The other two only turn on to a faint glow and don’t pass power through.

When the first one stopped working I thought one of the connectors had a broken solder joint. “Repairing” that broken joint had no effect.

I would be interested in knowing what the problem is, so I can at least take a stab at repairing it properly.

RD Tech?
