Please keep in mind this is my very first electronics project so it’s entirely possible I’m doing something wrong. Here’s the deal: I’m building a contact microphone from a kit that came with four 150R resistors and four 3.3M resistors. My digital multimeter shows a correct reading for the 150R resistors but does not react at all when I test the 3.3M resistors. To cover my bases: I have the red lead plugged into VΩ and the black lead plugged into "COM". I have the dial set to "200" when measuring the 150R resistors and set to "2M" when measuring the 3.3M resistors. I have touched the leads together before each reading.
When I touch the leads together at 2M the display changes from "1" to ".000". But when I touch the leads to the resistors, the display simple reads "1".
Any help is much appreciated!
