|Put the meter in DC voltage measure mode. Do an input voltage test, to make sure you've got good batteries, 2-3V total is good.|
Now test the output to make sure you've got 5V. If so, you did a good job!
You might have to press in a little hard (but don't slip!) to make a good connection with the solder joints: they are covered with a thin rosin layer (the brown gunk). You can clean it off with a little acetone or an old toothbrush.
Can't get it working? Don't worry, help is available in the forums!
