    People have made little test benches. Variety of sockets and variety of voltages.

    For just 44/47/555 all you need is a wedge base socket and bayonet base socket and 6 volt power source.

    Quoted from ravve:

    So to be clear, not all lamps can be tested using the continuety method? Just confused why it works on some and not on others, is there any explanation for that?

    Some of the LEDs are polarized. Swap leads from the meter, check both directions. First one side then swap leads and check the other direction.
