Trying to repair micronta 22-164

I have a micronta talking multi meter 22-164 and after I put fresh batteries in it it keeps saying replace batteries. I found out other people have the same problem.

I got a new multimeter from Harbor Freight Tools when they had a buy anything, get a free multimeter deal. I bought a hose clamp for $0.27, including tax. The multimeter works great and probably comes from the same Chinese factory as your Micronta. Have you tried different types of batteries in your multimeter? What types? Alkaline or general purpose or something else? Did you check the batteries with a different multimeter?
