There is no Bluetooth signal comming from the mooshimeter. Traying lot of thing, Bud there is no signal on 1 IPad, 2 IPhones, 3 Android phones.
You don’t say whether or not you ever had a connection with the meter. So, here are the easy things you can try (one at a time) based on other posts in this forum.
1. Sometimes the meter thinks it is still in shipping mode, so momentarily short the meter probes between ohm and common.
2. Open the case (2 screws) and press the tiny reset button (near the microSD card slot). This kind of reboots the meter. I use this a lot.
3. Remove the 2 batteries and check their voltage with another meter and replace if low. Some people have had dead batteries even if they haven’t used the meter much.
4. Reboot phones/tablets. Bluetooth BLE is crazy weird.
Hope one of these helps your meter.

This is exactly what I would have suggested. Thanks Duane!
Dear duane and James. I traid all these things. Pressing the reset button ( several times) schorten the probes, and at least the batt. Both 1.475 Volt.
Die Not reset the IPad. Used several phones. iPhone as wel as Android. Nottingham to see.
Love from Holland. Windmolens and tulips.
Sorry for the IPad fill in
Remove the batterys, and schorten the battery contacts. In the way there is a condensator werking?
Pussing the reset button, while placing the batterys.
wow, Sounds like you did all the correct things and the meter is still not working. I wish to make sure I am communicating clearly. Step1 above means to insert the red meter cable into the ohm hole on the meter (above the C and to the right of the V) and the black meter cable into the C hole on the meter. Then briefly touch the tips of the cables together for 3 seconds.
The meter may truly be broke. However, if you are willing, can you try a couple more things:
Can you verify the batteries are inserted in the proper orientation (see the + and – battery symbols printed on the circuit board)?
Does the LED blink at any of the above steps? The LED is located on the bottom of the meter at the end that has the batteries. You may need to be in a fairly dark room to see the LED because in some modes it can be a be a very brief dim flash.
Has the meter ever worked correctly?
Thanks again for your help. Jansloos also emailed me outside of the forum. He reported on June 16 that the meter worked with his friend’s Samsung phone, so he was trying to figure out why his iOS device wasn’t doing the trick.
Just wanted to make sure you knew your efforts went somewhere and were much appreciated :)
