MAXQ to the Rescue
A multimeter gets a new lease on life
A while ago I picked up a second-hand Philips system multimeter on Marktplaats (the Dutch equivalent of eBay) with a minor defect for next to nothing. The display was no longer legible, but I thought it would be easy to repair. That turned out to be a major error in judgement — no matter what I tried, there was no way to rescue the LCD. I therefore needed a different solution using modern components.
