When you have an offset like that with the probes shorted, I would try the simple things first.

1. Try a fresh batteries first. Some meters give incorrect readings before they show a low battery indicator (if they even have one).

2. Give the entire PCB a good IPA clean with a clean toothbrush and let it dry overnight. Any unseen dirt, debris to the naked eye can affect the readings and give non zero ohms readings when the probes are shorted.
