What does Err3 mean on taylor body fat scale?


Remove your shoes and socks and wet your feet slightly with a damp cloth if you receive the "ERR3" error. ERR3 is a contact error and your feet should ideally be bare and wet to achieve an accurate body-fat reading.
  • Step off the scale and wait for it reset. Remove your shoes and socks and wet your feet slightly if you receive either the "ERR4" or "ERR5" errors, which means your body-fat or body measurements are out of range.
  • Reset the scale if it doesn't work or you continue to receive error messages. Remove the battery and set the scale on a flat surface. Stand still on the scale for five seconds and step off. Re-install the battery and place the scale back on the flat surface. Place one foot on the scale until it displays zeros or dashes. Remove your foot and wait for the scale to turn off. Step back on the scale to weigh yourself

    WHY DO I GET EE AND THE CUFF DOESN'T WORK? JUST CHANGED BATTERIES AND STILL DOESN'T HELP???


    Do you have a pressure leak? If so that will account for the EE message. Or if the regulator lets the air out too fast from the cuff that will also account for the anomaly.

    Mod hem 704c reads high compared to doctors blood pressure readings


    There are many things that can affect the readings. Cuff size is one of the biggest. If the cuff is on the small side it will not read as accurately as a cuff that fits properly. Keeping the cuff at heart level is important as well. Many people have to put the cuff lower on the arm if the cuff is too small and then they don't raise the cuff to heart level. This will give a higher reading. What is most important is to ensure that the readings are consistent. While they may be higher than the doctors office, as long as they are not dangerous, use them as a baseline and monitor fluctuations over time to ensure that your medications are doing their intended work.

    Blood pressure monitor readings too low, inaccurate


    I have used Omron monitors for around 2 years now and I have not found any problem with it. The error may be because you went to the doctor, your blood pressure must have changed since there was a time gap. There is no need to get worried.

    My wrist cuff monitor seems to be reading low. Is there a way to get it checked or calibrated?


    The next time you go to your doctor, take the wrist cuff monitor with you. As they always do, the nurse or doctor will check you vital signs. After they do that and they've told you what your blood pressure and pulse readings are, correctly place the cuff monitor on your wrist and check you BP and Pulse with it. Compare the reading from the cuff monitor to what your doctor got. If it's within a few points, it's no big deal. If it's way off, than there's a problem with the cuff.

    Remember, whenever using a cuff monitor, always keep your wrist at heart level for the most accurate reading. Once it's activated, remain completely still and don't move your wrist, until it has finished cycling.

    Part of the problem may the the placement of the cuff. Generally, if it's not placed correctly. the cuff will re-inflate trying to find the correct stopping point for inflation. Any movement of your arm could cause this. Also, if you haven't replaced the batteries lately, you should do that. Also check to make sure there are no air leaks in the rubber tubing or the cuff. Check your Owners Manual for the exact placement of the cuff.

    WITH AUTOMATIC CUFF BLOOD PRESSURE MONITOR GETTING ERROR


    E might represents insufficient inflation for your mom. For automatic inflation monitors usually there is a mechanism to keep inflating the cuff to higher pressures for people with higher BP. Check how is done. In some auto monitors,while cuff is inflated you keep pressing on START button until pressure reaches to some 15 to 20 mmHg higher than the pressure that auto usually stops and displays E.
