Just received my labjack U12 and using the LJLogger program I cannot seem to get any response out of either analog output channel.  Everything else seems to be working on the device as it should but AO0 moves around -45mV (+/- 10mV) and AO1 is around -300mV (+/- 30mV) output and does not change when any value (between 0 and 5) are used in the LJLogger program.  I am using a multimeter to obtain the voltage readings and the meter is working just fine (tested a power supply output with it).   I have disconnected and reconnected the labjack, tried rebooting, same result.  Just wondering if I am doing something wrong here or if there is a problem with my Labjack.

If you have the outputs loaded that could cause an issue, but if you have nothing connected except the DMM then they should read correctly.


Connect the DMM to +5V/GND to make sure you see 4.75-5.25 volts.
