I think one of the meters on my 162 might be broken, Id have to check.  I got rid of all my 160's.  I noticed though that the meters would always fail on power up.  They'd work fine, and then one time you'd turn it on and could see the meter seize.  I had a few that I watched die like that over the years.  Dont know if it was just the end of the lifespan of a cheap meter or the design of the circuit that led to that death, but those meters eventually going dead is a fairly common problem amongst my friends at least.  Have you found a source for new meters that will work?  I gave up on that on a long time ago...
