I have five of 6 outlets on a circuit not working. The only working outlet is the one closest to the breaker box. All other outlets read hot/ground reverse using the three light plug tester. I've checked and changed all of the outlets on the circuit. Everything is wired correctly (I've checked multiple times). I've checked for continuity and the only outlet with continuity is the working one. All other outlets have no continuity. There is no voltage from neutral to hot on all non-working outlets, but there is 123 voltage from hot to ground, and from neutral to ground the voltage is also aroung 123. I'm at a loss on what could be wrong. Any ideas on what could the culprit of this problem?
