There should be a small thumb screw near the dial that you loosen to turn the dial to zero it, then re-tighten the thumb screw.

How do you put a preset in Mitutoyo uni-mics?

Normally you would adjust it to the part being measured then press the 'Zero' button to zero out the display. Now every time you measure the same type of part, it should read zero or the dimension plus or minus from that zero point.

How to test a tv flyback

Two basic ways--most shops use a ringer---with flyback out they connect across the primary (where sweep transistor collector goes to where that lead on the transformer exits--a good bad indication is seen.

Second way is voltage into the transformer is tested and High Voltage is measured at the CRT---usually if transformer bad you will have 4kv or so (4,000 volts) and the suspect is clear.

If HV just comes up full (over 20 Kv) and drops to zero it is not the problem and something is shutting the set down.

You have a sensor that controls this. It is a temp sensor. It could be called something else, but it is a sensor that measures your engine temps. It would shut the vehicle off if it is not working properly.

I have two questions. The first is what is the

The dial is for selecting which of the "multi" things you need for measuring (metering).

Set the dial to the DC area and select 20V or whatever is the lowset DC voltage setting that is higher than the battery voltage.

The meter does not put a "load" on the batteries, so the test is just an estimate of freshness of the battery.

The meter voltage does not present any danger to the user. If you are not experienced, do not check any AC voltages.

I have a GE gas dryer and the ignitor is a WE4X750. I tested the ohms and I get no resistance. Does that indicate it is bad for sure?

Generic comment:

No resistance indicates "short" (completed circuit). NO reading is not necessarily no resistance. Are you using a digital or analog meter? Do you have a reference value from the manufacturer?

If you measured a piece of wire, your digital reading would be zero, your analog reading would be "short" and probably zero (the needle would move to the other end of the scale). If you measure air, (a known burned out light bulb for example) your digital reading would be floating (nothing) while your analog reading would be no movement of the needle on the meter.

I would expect an ignitor would indicate some resistance (that would cause heat).

You probably already know this stuff.

Can you see where the thing is located? I think Id be looking for an orange glow as I turned the device on ... that would indicate it was working.

c) .08-.16 inch The measurement point is close to where the adjustment is attach a dial indicaator (with magnetic base) to a place where you can line up the dial indicator to contact the clutch release lever, then with your hand move the lever all the way in one direction and hold while you turn the zeroing ring dial to line up with zero to the needle then move the clutch lever in the opposite direction , note the reading and adjust accordingly to bring it into spec.

How to adjust Mitutoyo 505-101 caliber

You don't. What you did to adjust zero is what you do to adjust zero. Do not "go inside to adjust the dial". If the dial reads zero when the jaws are shut there is no problem.
