    Hi

    Went to take a meter reading this morning and found that all the digits are flashing 88888 88 etc. (that's not the reading before you ask!)

    The meter is an Ampy 5193A model.

    The red LED is flashing away which I'm led to believe indicates power is being used and our supply is fine.

    Any idea why I can't read the meter?

    Thanks in advance

    Steve

    As you put in the title, it's faulty! Get onto your supplier and report it

    I have seen at least half a dozen of these fail, and I don't do metering as such! Your supplier will come to some agreement with you based on your past readings (or the previous occupiers).
