Tanita 2204 Scale weight reading problems

I have a Tanita 2204 Body Fat Scale and the weight reding has been in lbs since I started using it. Now the weight reading is no longer in lbs but some other reading I am not familiar with. If you could let me know of any solutions that are available that would be great, thank you.

I had to change the batteries and now it only reads in "kg" how do i change that on the model 2204?


Since your problem started with a battery change, I am going to assume that method 1 is most likely going to fix your problem...Good luck!



Method 1
Press the Set and Up Arrow buttons at the same time. Release the buttons, the display will flash. Press the Arrow button to cycle through each weight mode until just the mode that you require is displayed. Then press Set. The display screen will flash to confirm your selection and store in memory.
Note: If weight mode is set to pounds or stone-pounds, the height programming mode will be automatically set to feet and inches. Similarly, if kilograms is selected, height will be automatically set to centimeters.
Method 2
Body Fat Monitor/Scales: BF-542, TBF-551, TBF-521, TBF-531, BF-681, BF-682, BF-679, BF-680, BF-578, all Ironman products, and all InnerScan products.
Select the preferred weight mode by using switch on the back of the measuring platform.
Note: If weight mode is set to pounds or stone-pounds, the height programming mode will be automatically set to feet and inches. Similarly, if kilograms is selected, height will be automatically set to centimeters.

Understanding Your Readings
Healthy Range Indicator
(Please note this function is only applicable on adult mode, as no standard healthy ranges have been established for children and athletes.)
Your body fat monitor/scale instantly compares your body fat reading to the healthy range chart. Following your body fat reading, a black bar will flash across the bottom of the display, identifying where you fall within the body fat ranges for your age and gender.
(-): Underfat; below the healthy range. Increased risk for health problems
(O): Healthy; within the healthy body fat percentage range for your age/gender
(+): Overfat; above the healthy range. Increased risk for health problems
(++): Obese; high above the healthy body fat range. Greatly increased risk of obesity related problems.
