Tested The Blue ESR Meter

By on February 5, 2008

Well, i have installed and fixed the Blue ESR meter kitset and it only took me about 1 and a half hour to fully complete assembled it. I have also calibrated the meter too. The time that i have taken to fix the blue esr meter compare to dick smith esr meter is faster most probably due to the components value and part number were printed on the PCB board. In the dick smith esr meter board, the pcb board labelled as R2, C1, Q3 and etc but this blue esr meter pcb board labelled it as 10k, 330 nf,  100 uf and so on. You just have to insert the components right into the pcb holes and solder it. All these remove guesswork and speed up the assembling time.The manual given is in pdf file, if possible print it out for easy reference!

After fixing the blue esr meter kitset i used it to test electrolytic capacitors in a CRT monitor. The result that i got is similar to dick smith esr meter. It was fast and have a easy reference chart in the front panel of the blue esr meter. For your information , this blue esr meter can check low ohms resistors too where your normal analog/digital meter can’t test it. If you already have the dick smith esr meter, don’t buy this meter. If you do not own any esr meter, then i strongly suggest that you get one as soon as possible because esr meter can truly save your troubleshooting time and it is very accurate in testing electrolytic capacitors.

In fact I’ve already got the distributorship from anatek to sell this meter to ASIA, Malaysia and to Australia market-you can buy from me too if your country is not listed in my distribution list.  It will take another week for me to completely finished the blue esr meter webpage that can take order worldwide. Buy from my coming website and i will personally support you just in case if you have any problems or questions related to fixing or using the blue esr meter. I will inform you through email (if you are a ERG member you will receive my email soon). Please take a closer look again of this fantastic blue esr meter photos:

    Hi Burchell,

    Thanks for your interest in the blue esr meter. May i know which country you want the meter to be sent- Jamaica or USA ? Once i got your answer i can then workout a price for you plus transportation. Which kitset do you prefer-only the kitset or the fully assembled one? By the way you can send the money to me thru paypal.

    Have a good day!

    Best Regards,
    Jestine Yong

    Hi there, I would like to know where I can order this blue esr tester here from Denmark.

    I have try to order this item from a unserious store in UK called RF4U, but it never arrived and they won't pay money back.

    So if you know how I can get it from another store, I'll be very happy - plz. mail me with prize total incl. S&H to Denmark.

    Best regards: Jan Pedersen of Denmark

    hi just got the blue esr meter but i cant read caps wit 6.3v it gives me .00
    and on some .55 or .71
    could you please let me know if you do a chat for the 6.3v 1200 and ?

    Hi Samtec,

    You mean you have checked a 6.3 volt 1200uf cap and you got the reading of .00,.55 and .71? Did you initialize the meter and you bought the meter from me under which name as i need to check my record.

    This meter has been one of the best adquisitions I have ever made; and it has served me well to identify bad electrolytic caps onboard. However it doesn't do well with small metal polarized smd caps sometimes, and it doesn't have to do with anything wrong in the device. I had this monitor in which the inverter board didn't work. I tested all smd electrolytic caps using both a fluke multimeter and blue esr meter. The caps were rated 330/16v. With both instruments, caps tested good. However, by accidentaly trying to resolder small smd components with a heat gun on the main board I heated the caps too, and the problem was momentarily solved. I replaced the caps and the problem in the inverter was solved. I took the bad smd caps off the board, retested them and results were the same; around 330uF in the multimeter and very low esr in the blue esr meter. I saved the caps for later testing and recently I bought a bk precision 878b LCR meter. In this meter the caps report a capacitance of only 110 uF. On two high end fluke multimeters (87v and 289), capacitance still reads good at 330uF and blue sr meter also reports low resistance. So in the end, the most reliable intruments you have, the better. Regards.

    I am a real newbi on this, I suck big on reading the chart that is on the meter, i found your chart and that i much better, but...
    Why is there no reference on charts with lower volts, such as (6.3V) or higher (400-450V)


    • Jestine Yong

      March 26, 2012 at 9:38 am

      HI Kenneth,

      They never provide but you can make your own chart by writing down the good cap value for 6.3 and 400-450 v so that you can refer to it.

    Hi Justine,
    I would like to buy Blue ESR meter kit from you. I'm in Oman so how can i get this in Oman. I don't have Paypal account i have visa card here. Kindly give me suggestion for buying this super Blue ESR meter kit after that i'll buy Blue Ring tester too.

    hi i just bouth one blueesr but im not sure about something could i measure smd,smt  if can i. where can i find the chart for that? thanks so much justin 
    i also want to know wich of your metod is good to learn all about micro electronics because i have been studying smd tecnology to repair cell phones and i cant find any good information or metod for that. i already know how to soldering smd but i want to expand my knowing thanks.

      Hi Adrian,

      Try this chart- The meter can be used to check on smd electrolytic capacitors. There are many method to troubleshoot smd circuit board but then again it depends on what board and what kind of problem.

    Hi Jestine,
    I have a Dick Smith ESR meter the same as the one on the left of your photo. Unfortunately I failed to discharge a capacitor and it looks as if I've killed the processor. I only get segments of the right hand LED lighting. Would you be able to supply me with a programmed processor for it?
    Thanks and kind regards,

      August 25, 2012 at 8:55 pm

      Hi Peter,

      Sorry I do not have the Dick Smith Programmed IC. Try email to see if they will sell the IC or not.

    I would like to know if i can test the capacitor working with volt and test this one the capacitance, so i want to know if i cant test the ESR and Farad too....

    Please send me a email cause i want to buy 2, how much? where i buy it? what kind of transference we are going to use?

    please send me this.

    Thank you.

    • Jestine Yong

      HI Estherrwing,

      It can't test farad/capacitance. I suggest that you visit this link:

    Hi. Take a look what i found in my BLUE ESR METER that is no more than 2 years old.


    The crappy capacitors were chong cd11x and chang brand.

    I was expecting that they put quality caps like rubycon , nichicon etc. but i was wrong. Anyway, made in USA but with crappy chinese caps.

    All of you who owns this meter you better start checking the caps or replace them all with a good known brand and then recalibrate the meter.

    The IC's were removed to prevent an ESD discharge.

    Warning: C6 is a bipolar capacitor.

    Thank you.
