Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer


I have a Pelouze 4010 digital scale. Has worked perfectly for 8 years. Today the read out is locked up reading 4010. I tried a reset by unpluging the power for 30 seconds and longer, still come up with 4010 when power is applied. Not sure if the read out is the problem or the actual scale, but nothing has been moved since last used. Can I buy a new readout, if that's the problem. I Googled Pelouze hoping to fine the factory abd be able to contact their service, but was unable to find and direct by to contact. What do you suggest? Thanks for your time.

    Mine was doing that. For me, it was the "phone cable". It had been repaired by the previous owner and the wires were disconnected where they spliced the wires and taped over them. I temporarily respliced the wires and the display got past the 4010 and was reading weight again. I'm currently looking for a new cord. The cord uses a very narrow phone plug, so I'm having trouble finding one.

Fix my pelouze fs6 scale

Based on its appearance I'm guessing that you need to unplug it and open it up. Clean it as well as you can with a stiff brush and an electronics safe cleaner. Roaches are the most likely cause of your scales failure!
All the above may be fruitless, it may not be possible or worth the cost to repair.
Time for a new scale! You must keep it clean and turn it off and disconnect it when you aren't using it. Roaches like warm damp dirty places!

When powered up the display reads 4040 and will not display anything else. buttons don't seem to function

We solved this hold down the lb/kg button and the zero/hold and the on button at the same time up comes a A-of and then do it again and it will come up CAL wait a momment and then turn off and it will go back to zero.

I need to download the new postal rate on the scale, but I have no user manual or connector. Please let me know how to go about doing this.

Here is the answer on the Pelouze web-site you can also download a manual here. They have all of the software you need to get the rate change installed.
