You may have damaged these beyound what you can repair. best thing woudl be to return to Starrett to see if they can be fixed. They will advise repair charge before repairing so you can decide. digital micrometers should not be opened beyount the range.

Micrometers must be calibrated at 4 spots around the barrel and at zero and full scale to be
truly accurate. You will have to send it to a calibration lab or back
to Starrett for a full calibration because they will check it with gauge blocks of known length and verify the spindle and anvil surface flatness.
If you are only concerned with the zero and not as much about the full accuracy of the tool, then you can reset the zero yourself. With the mic fully closed (spindle and anvil touching), turn the barrel with the funky, half circle shaped wrench that came with the mic in the box. There is a little hole in the barrel where the nub on the wrench will fit then you just turn it until it reads zero. Good luck.

You may check the calibration by using the following directions. First, adjust
your micrometer setting to 2. Squeeze the trigger against the handle. The
calibration line is a small, raised line embossed on the top of the spreader's
shut-off plate. With the micrometer set at 2 and the trigger squeezed against
the handle, the calibration line should be aligned with the back edge of the
To adjust the alignment, use a small wrench to turn the black calibration screw at the lower end of the control wire leading from the micrometer rate setting barrel. Adjust the screw until the calibration line and back edge of the hopper meet. If you have any difficulty checking the calibration, contact us and we will be happy to help walk you through the adjustment.
When you are not pulling on the trigger handle, the cable should be loose. When you pull on the handle, the cable becomes taut and the shutoff plate slides open.
