    I had a battery leak in this device it was only in there a day before it started leaking so I pulled it out pretty quickly however the battery seem to be venting. Once I remove the battery I noticed that there was a slight haze on the PCB so I cleaned this off with some alcohol IPA a toothbrush and then thoroughly dried the device with a hairdryer before putting it in the airing cupboard overnight. However now I seem to be getting some very strange readings on the DC range on both current and voltage with no leads connected. Any ideas what could be causing this and any ideas how to fix it. There doesn’t seem to be any corrosion on the PCP as this all happened within a space of one day. I learnt my lesson not to use cheap Chinese batteries. Please see these screenshots.
