When I step on the scale, it doesn't register (perform the weighing function) - no "0's" going across the screen. Getting on and off several times will sometimes work. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to when it decides to come on. And, yes, I have replaced the battery. Thanks for any help you can give.

If it's any consolation my Jobar/Ideaworks JB5413 scale has the a similar problem: will not weigh, yet the remote control functions okay. About one attempt out of ten will cause a weight display, though. Can't figure out why scale works occasionally, vs. never works. Batteries are new, and the battery compartments are free of corrosion.
what do you mean by adjust it? to calibrate it follow below
2. Press and hold OFF key.
3. Quickly press ON/ZERO key three times then release both keys together. The timing is rather critical, so if it doesn’t work first time, try again.
4. Display shows [ 0.-0- ], followed by [ 0.-1- ].
5. Place 50gm weight on plate.
6. Display shows [ 0.-2- ].
7. Place 100gm on plate.
8. Display reverts to weighing mode.
Try to reset the unit. Use the following steps - Open the battery compartment on the bottom of the scale. Push the tab on the door and lift the cover. - Remove the battery from the compartment. Close the battery compartment door. - Sit the scale right side up on a hard surface floor. - Step on the scale and stand still on it for five to ten seconds. Step off the scale. - Turn the scale over and open the battery compartment. Re-insert the battery. Close the battery compartment cover. - Place the scale right side up on the hard surface floor. - Press one foot on the scale until the display shows zeroes or dashes. Remove your foot. - Wait for the scale to shut off by itself. When you step back onto the scale, it will be reset. Hope this solution has been helpful?
A. Powering-on the scale 1.
Press and hold the POWER button for two seconds. Scale will perform a
self-test by displaying four 8s for three seconds. When "0.00 kg" or "0
lb 0 oz" is displayed on the screen, scale is zeroed-out and ready for
normal operation. B. Normal Weighing 1. Hang fish on the attached hook. Weight is displayed in either kilograms or pounds and ounces. C. Switching between unit weights 1.
Press and hold the POWER and CHOOSE button simultaneously for three
seconds. Unit will change from weighing pounds and ounces to kilograms
and vice versa. D. Taring Weights 1. Weigh a bag or container till its weight is steadily displayed on the screen. 2.
Press the POWER button once. Scale will zero-out and show "0.00 kg" or
"0 lb 0 oz" and is ready for weighing multiple fish together. E. Holding a weight 1.
With the weight displayed on the screen, press the CHOOSE button. This
will hold the current weight and is indicated by displaying an H to the
left of the screen. To unlock the hold, simply press the POWER button. F. Storing weights into memory 1.
With a weight in the hold mode and an H displayed to the left of the
screen, enter the memory mode by pressing the CHOOSE button. While in
the memory mode, pressing the CHOOSE button will allow you to navigate
through ten stored memories. These are indicated on the left and
numbered 0 through 9. There are also 4 letters that indicate other
options. An A shows the average of all stored weights. An E displays
the total and a C resets the memory. 2.
To store a weight, simply hold down the CHOOSE button for three
seconds. Weights will automatically store into one of the number
registers. To see the numbers with their weights, simply scroll through
the numbers by pressing the CHOOSE button as described above. G. Resetting the memory 1.
With the unit in the C mode, press and hold the CHOOSE button for six
seconds and scale will reset memory and zero out. Press the POWER
button and scale is ready to begin weighing again. H. Powering-off manually 1. Press and hold the POWER button for 6 seconds.
Sounds like it wasn't initialized, even though it says Er 4 instead of Er 0... According to my manual, to (re)initialize it and reset it to zero, tap the platform lightly. It should show zeroes running across the display for a second or two, then show all zeroes and turn off. It should be re-initialized...
Error Codes for the 5757 (according to my manual):
Er 0 Initialization error (remedy described above)
Er 1 Instability error (step off the scale, then back on)
Er 2 Overload warning (registering weight beyond the 440 pound max)
Er 3 Contact error (body impedance beyond technical limit - try dampening feet and try again for better contact)
Er 4 Bodyfat error (bodyfat percentage is beyond range - try dampening feet and try again for better contact)
Er 5 Bodywater error (bodywater percentage is beyond range - try dampening feet and try again for better contact)
