DMM failing to measure DC voltage unless after a minute waiting

Anyone experienced on how to solve a DMM (of medium quality not top/best one) failing to meter DC voltage unless after probing several times later or perhaps just waiting a minute or so later, after which it will work normally for the needed measurement

A bit more info on the meter would be helpful for sure. You might try tapping on the meter as you measure something to see if you get a jump or loss in the reading, and of course what's been mentioned is a good place to start also. Good Luck.
