    Dumb question, but how do one test bulbs/leds?
    Is there any difference between testing non-led and led?

    Using my multimeter, i can test continuety on some lamps, but not on others (no beep) although they are working.

    Questions goes both for 44/47 and 555.

    Thanks

    Thanks!
    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?
