Why can’t I determine which side of my outlet is the live side with the VD6504? The unit is way too sensitive!

These testers were designed for quick basic testing to determine if there is voltage at an outlet or on a line. They are not designed to pin-point which line is the hot and which is neutral. For that you would want to use the VD6505 because they have an adjustment for the sensitivity to dial it down and give more accurate readings.
