SOURCE: scale appears to be inaccurate

this type of less resoluted scale hasn't repeatability. if you wish to repair it, change the loadcell. use 2 x scale capacity of load cell.

SOURCE: digital scale

if scale  shows 0.000 after placing some weight on pan, it means sensor or load cell connection is open, please check sensor connection.

SOURCE: Conair WW41 Scale

To totally reset the scale and remove any old data in the users take battery out for 2 hours.

To use the USER functions:
Tap scale to turn it on
When you see "0.0" press
Press SET button. "P-1" will appear and blink
Use UP/DOWN button to select a user number
once desired user number (1-4) appears press SET button to confirm

when 0.0 appears step on scale this will enter your starting weight
press SET to confirm
scale automatically sets a goal weight of 10% below starting. you can raise or lower it by using arrow buttons-Press SET to confirm

Tracking weight
tap, see 0, select user number. Scale displays start weight, then goal weight then 0.0 and you weigh yourself. In the smaller windows it will display last weight and the difference between current and last weight then diff between current and start then diff between current and goal

SOURCE: Fluctuating weight on Digital Scale from one minute to the next..

i believe that, like most electronic scales, the first time you get on the scale you must step off to allow it to zero itself. Then step back on to get your correct weight.

Model 9114 salter scale shows Lo. I have changed the batteries but it still only shows Lo.

I had the same problem and, suspecting that the metal contacts weren't making proper contact with the batteries, I used a long nosed pliers to gently bend all ten contacts towards to the batteries (there are eight small tabs in the battery compartment, and two on the battery cover). If you don't have a long nosed pliers a small screwdriver should do it if you held the fixed part of each set of contacts so it doesn't detach during the process.
Unfortunately, it worked, but only for one weigh, and then it reverted to "Lo". This happened twice, so I telephoned the Salter Customer Service Helpline (01732 360783) who recommended a reset, which is done by removing the batteries, standing on the scale for 20 seconds, and replacing the batteries. That also only worked for one weigh, so they are looking into it further and I'll post the results here, but in the meantime I hope one of the above solutions will work for others.

My WW78 scale keeps giving an ERR message when I stand on it.

Usually I change the weight by weighing one foot and then weighing again with both. And then I keep repeating that until my results are consistent. Then that result seems to be accurate

Have a Health o Meter bfm588dq-81. Getting a Lo lite - replaced the 4 1.5v batteries and still get the Lo lite????

I have not found a manual anywhere currently because the manual is no longer on Health-o-meters website, only the current supported scale. However, I have one and can tell you what I know on how to operate it.

First Remember you ALWAYS have to tap (slightly touch the middle of the scale to initiate it to calibrate ON to ready to take your weight) the scale and you then wait for the little lines at the top and bottom to flash on and off, and then show a 0 on the scale where the Weight will be once you have stepped on the scale. However, make sure your feet are slightly moist (if you just woke up and your feet are dry wipe them with a moist cloth first) for a good contact on the pads that will send the small signal through one leg and back down to the other to measure your body fat and hydration levels.

For those having problems with false readings or Lo readings after changing batteries (Lo means the batteries are low and to change if you haven't done so), make sure batteries are good even if you just bought them by checking them in a Battery Output checker, which you can get at the store...or check the expiration dates on the battery, things can sit around at the store for a while some times especially at small grocery or convenience stores.

Then if you are still getting false or Lo readings, you need to do a Factory Reset by flipping over the scale and look toward the top where you will see a small hole with raised letters, not colored, that show RESET under the small hole. Get a tooth pick or some about the same diameter and put it in the hole and press the little button. You can feel it when you get the toothpick--- or whatever you are using---in the middle of the button and it slightly depresses. Hold it down for at least a count of "One Thousand one to One Thousand ten," which means ten seconds. That should do it.

Then you need to make sure your settings are set by holding down the number on the front end that you will use to save your data, and hold down the Set/Save button on the top front at the same time. When it starts flashing the 5 for Feet in the Height either change that with the History button by pressing it until you get the correct number or leave it by pressing Set/Save button again. Use the Set/Save button to Save and Move to the next item to Set/Save and the History button to Change the number or item such as Gender from Female (the Default is 5Ft 3in Female who is 18 years of age and the Goal starts out at 100 but you can save a Goal Weight or not by choosing YES or NO then set the Goal if you Choose YES).

The Date and time are set by just holding down the Set/Save button until it flashes in the little yellow box in the bottom left of the screen. Then use the buttons the same way as you did above.

By the way when you see H with numbers after you have weighed Saved (To Save: hit Save while the numbers are on the screen) and once they disappear you just press your number again hit History to Scroll through your history... the H stands for Hydration percentage.

Hope this helps.

The digital thermometer was flashing "lo". I assumed it needed new batteries and then replaced them. It is still flashing lo, but also showing a C reading. What do I need to do to reset it?

there should be a setting on it that changes the temp from Celsius or "c" to ferinheight and lo means that it currently isn't reading a temperature in the normal range. try running it under hot water and see if it says error or high.

Scale keeps showing lo no weight

Try taking the battery out and putting it back in, also there should be a small reset button. You will need a toothpick to push the reset button. Allow time for the scale to reset before stepping on it.
