Try using compressed air to clean terminal block plugs (specially mA plug) - something is stuck there and unit thinks that you have your leads connected to mA and setting and will beep if you turn knob to any other function.

refer page 14 of the user manual. Unfortunately you cannot do much as the memory chip containing the program is developing a fault.

You could try to find if it is in a socket on the circuit board and take it out and lean the pins with isopropyl alcohol.
Otherwise a service call is in order.

You can find the details of the components in the service manual.

Try to replace the battery and see if it makes a difference. Maybe the currents are not sufficient to run the chip.

Fluke 87

Terminal is dirty inside and unit thinks that leads are connected to mA terminals and knob is at Volts,

Use compressed air to clean terminals and if that does not help use cotton bud with little alcohol on it to clean terminals inside. It will fix the problem.

Why always display ''lead '' fluke 88v

Fluke 88 V displays "LEADS" warning if test leads are in A or mA/uA terminals but switch position does not corespond with those terminals.

Remove all leads and if you still get "LEADS" warning try cleaning all terminals with air. Sometimes dirt gets in A terminals and unit thinks that leads are connected.

Use compressed air or airduster to blow dust from all terminals and hopefully that will fix the problem.
