REPAIRING DIGITAL DISPLAY SCALE -- SALTER BRAND WITH ERROR MESSAGE, AND EVENTUALLY NO DISPLAY AT ALL
---
I managed to fix a Salter digital display bathroom scale I had bought for my mom by removing dust from the area that turns it on -- the design fit perfectly with her decor so she didn`t want it replaced with a different style.
MODEL: It was model 910 but I imagine the fix will work with other similar models.
PROBLEM: The scale had been working only occasionally for many weeks and was hard to turn on -- my mom said it no longer made the little click sound when she pressed it with her foot to turn it on. Finally it gave an error display and stopped working entirely with no display at all -- not even the dashes to indicate it was getting any power from the battery.
SOLUTION: When changing the battery and cleaning out its compartment failed, I suspected that maybe dust had gotten into another area -- the part that turns it on -- on this scale they`re little silver discs under the glass that press into the base (the dust would explain the lack of the usual metallic click sound and the lack of contact to switch it on). The area is not very accessible, so I used a high power vacuum with crevice attachment in my left hand, while loosening the dust with a duster/paintbrush in my right. The trick was to find the right duster and then work both tools around each disc coming at the same point from different angles. The first time I used a small duster with man-made materials (not feathers) and tried to push it into the crevice so that at least some bristles turned the corner down into the base -- the vacuum was strong enough to pull any loose dust out. This first cleaning went well enough to get the display back on when I tried it -- back to the error message anyway, but I knew I was on the right track. The second time I used a skinny fine detail number 1 paint brush (similar to the ones in a child`s paint set) to loosen the dirt while using the vacuum -- I pushed horizontally in toward the disc, and then twirled it back and forth so that the bristles splayed and the lower half of them curved down into the crevice. This worked well and afterwards the scale turned on and went to 00 and read my weight. A third cleaning with the vacuum and paint brush even brought back the little "click" sound and my mom says that since fixing it the scale works better now than it has in a couple years.
Hope this repair works for you. All in all it took less time than it would to find contact info to call/e-mail for a return/replacement, wrap/box/label it, and take it to the post office -- not to mention saving shipping charges.

SOURCE: When setting Tanita scales specifics, after set, I get an error

I had the same problem with the error message coming up and emailed Tanita. The regional representative contacted me by email. He had me check with new batteries and clean the contacts. Then he cross-referenced my model and lot numbers and said that my scale was still under warranty and if it met the warranty criteria would be replaced. Tanita has a 10 year warranty on this scale and my scale was 5 years old. He gave me an RMA# to submit with my receipt and about 10 days later I had my replacement scale!! Fantastic Customer Service! Thank you Tanita!!!

I have a DigitZ DZ3-600 and when I turn it on the word FULL in the display screen . What can I do to clear this and start using it?


My search is telling me that this is a scale. Is this correct? If so - this is the manual. \'FULL\' is not an error, but this is the correct model. If this is not a scale, please write again and provide more information:



The manual is short and PASTED after link to same here:



http://digitzscales.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=frontpage



Digitz DZ3-600 Manual




I. Operation


1. Place the scale on a flat, level surface and press the ON/OFF key to turn the scale on.

2. Once the start-up process completes and the scale goes to zero you are ready to weigh.

3. Place the quantity to be weighed onto the weighing platform.

4. Wait a couple seconds for the display to stabilize before taking a weight reading.



II. Changing the Unit of Measure


1. Press the MODE key to change the scales displayed unit of measure.

2. If the scale is turned off then back on, it will default to the last unit used.

• DZ3-100 Units: g (gram) oz (ounce) ct (carat) gn (grain)

• DZ3-600 Units: g (gram) oz (ounce) ozt (troy ounce) dwt (pennyweight)



III. Using the Tare Feature


You can use this scale\'s tare feature to subtract the weight of an empty container or vessel for net weight determination. NOTE: The weight of the container will subtract from the available capacity.

1. Place the empty container or vessel on the weighing platform.

2. Press the TARE key once. The display will then reset to zero. If the container is removed, it\'s weight will be displayed as a negative number.

3. You may now fill the container with the quantity to be weighed. The display will show the net weight of the contents.

4. To return to normal weight display (gross weight), remove any items from the weighing platform and

press the TARE key again to re-zero the scale.



IV. Calibration / Adjustment


1. Turn the scale on by pressing the ON/OFF key.

2. Wait for the display to show "0.0g" or "0.00g" then press and hold the MODE key until the display shows "CAL", then release.

3. Press the MODE key again. The display will flash "CAL" followed by the required calibration weight.

4. Place the required calibration weight on the center of the platform. The display will show "PASS" then return to normal weighing mode. Calibration is complete! You may now turn the scale off.



V. Error Codes


1. OUTZ - Zero range has shifted. Perform calibration adjustment. If the problem persists, the load cell may be permanently damaged due to overloading.



2. 88888 - Maximum capacity exceeded. Remove the extra weight to avoid damaging the load cell.



3. L - Batteries are low. Replace the batteries.



VI. Specifications


DZ3-100 DZ3-600

Max. Capacity 100g 600g

Readability 0.01g 0.1g

Min. Weight 0.03g 0.2g

How do I change my Braun ear thermometer back to F from C


You did not provide a model number however the Instruction Manuals for the various Braun Thermometers can be found here:

http://braun.kaz.com/kaz/service/prodResult/

Not sure if this procedure is common to all but this may work otherwise find the manual specific to your model number.

Changing the temperature scale

This thermometer is shipped with the Celsius temperature scale activated. If you wish to switch to Fahrenheit ( °F), proceed as follows:

Turn on the thermometer. ( If it is already turned on, make sure it is not in memory mode.)

Press the /mem button and keep it pressed. Then press and release the activation button to switch over to the «change temperature scale» mode.
By pressing the activation button again, the Fahrenheit scale is activated, «°F» is displayed on the LCD. Each further pressing of the activation button toggles the scale between °C and °F.
Release the /mem button to return to the ready symbol . The temperature stored in memory will automatically be converted to the selected scale when displayed on the LCD.

The scale displays 8888 every time you stand on it. If you go to choose p1 it flashes data. Can seem to get the scale to reset using the instructions and removing batteries does nothing


I have a "Thinner" scale. You have to put a little weight on it to activate, it will show 8888. Don't step on, wait a few seconds and it will change to 0000, then step on.
