There are generall 2 Voltage selections, one is for AC Volts and is a ~ line .
the other is for DC Volts and is a streight - line .
1.Make sure you have the selector on Volts- (or DC).
2.And if it has 3 places to plug a lead into us the Black lead on Common.
and the RED in Volts (Not Amps).
There is also a second selector switch which is a multiplier switch , it lets you go
from 1 Volt, 10 Volts , 100 Volts ...etc.
So after confirming 1. and 2. above is correct ,
3.try moving the multiplier Switch to the right (clockwise)

IF this does not work
4. Most have a simple streight forward Manual telling how to read DC Volts.

HD sells a couple of brands. Is it a Sperry? Yellow? DC volts is to the left of center. The 200VDC I spoke of is at the 10:00 position.

Yes mine is a SPERRY-sp-5A.and I turn the dial to "10".and my question is do I read the green numbers or the black numbers below the green numbers.Because when I read the black numbers,all numbers are perfect to my batteties,but when I read the green that goes from 0 on the right to 1k on the left are reading really bad..Thanks guys!

You need to set your dial to DC v 250 first, then take a look at the readings under that setting on your needle. That should be the 0-250 line under your needle. Also make sure your needle is set to the left side O mark before any testing.
