I have this meter and have lost the manual :evil: I can't find one anywhere on line. I am interested in the transistor test . It works but I would like to see the page on this in the manual. Anyone here have one. This was their best meter I believe, really packed with many features.

Radio Shacks's Support link is gone, but it may be here on Archive.org: https://web.archive.org/web/20150803142 ... es&Reuse=N (All of the pages I tried are showing up)

(The "Measurements" page has transistor testing)

Wow Tom, thanks so much for this info. I now have the whole manual printed out. I will send a donation to them, I had not thought about that site. I was a RS Manager back in 72-73 here in Albany and Schenectady NY.

I have the original version of this meter,the 22-174.It was the first DMM I ever owned.I eventually replaced it with a Fluke 179.

I once read a review of this meter where they stated that it was so inaccurate right out of the box,they just threw it away.They must have gotten a bad one because as far as voltage and current readings go,it compares favorably to my Fluke.It's slower than death taking a reading,but why hurry?

Several of the functions mysteriously quit working one day and I was never able to figure what went wrong.I've searched years for a schematic and never found one.If I had a schematic,I don't think I could repair it anway,mostly tiny surface mount stuff that's beyond me,and my close-up vision can't handle that any more.

Mine compares very favorably with my Fluke. I don't remember what they sold for but I think it was one of the best testers they ever sold.

Anyone that owns this meter I need the value or at least the color of the bands on R-61. It is mounted above the board. Mine is fried and cannot read the colors. The resistor now is gray and black. Looks to be a 1/2 watt Thanks

Thanks for posting that 22-174A DMM Owner's Manual PDF!

Do you happen to have the schematic for that multimeter?

I was a Radio Shack customer for several centuries (it seems)
and was very sad to see most of that data torn down.

.


As I said 2 years ago in this thread,I've searched far and wide,for years, for a schematic and have never found one.I don't believe one exists.
