ive seen this before on my scale (don't know your model number??), seems the cable to the bottom platform was damaged , the guy said it was reading disconnected . ?? he replaced the entire lower part and it worked well again , found out later my temp hit it with a pallet lift , so that's how it got damaged .
two cups of water are about 500g, 500ml of water is 500g, just measure 500ml of water, put it in no leaking plastic bag and use as a solution to your scales calibration problem, as i am assuming you will not use it to weighting 500g of d0pe or m eth, error of 2 or 3 grams will be of no importance!
regarding fixya - stupidity of censorship is astounding! d0pe and m eth in correct spelling are regarded as profanities...
magnum 1000xr pocket scales turns on calibrates goes to different modes but wont show the weight when object placed on the scale,a lock appears in top left of window, is scales broke or do i have to make lock symble dissappear?
I have access to the same model you mention in your post. It was handed to me for repair and I did my best to track down a schematic for Toledo Scale model 8420. Coincidentally I happen to work in the same neighborhood that Mettler-Toledo is located and getting to their CSR was easy. Bad news is this same CSR who is what we in the industry call a "Lifer" didn't have any of the service documentation for this 25+ year-old scale.
Good news is I made a request to the original owner not to throw out the scale once I returned it. If you are interested in buying the scale "as-is" and salvaging the parts needed to solve your reset and 0000 problem, this may be your best opportunity. I don't know as of this writing what the original owner, a restaurateur, will ask for the scale but estimate it won't be much. These scales are industrial strength and this particular one is in great cosmetic condition. Because I am new to Fixya and don't have the patience to set up an account presently, you will have to post your reply as you did for your initial question. I will check the site in a couple of days to see what has transpired and go from there.
Press the scale once with your foot. All screen options should display to initialize and then go to 0.0. Now step on the scale. It should read out your correct weight. If not, first remove and replace the battery for reset. If still not, replace the battery. If still not it's ready for return or replacement. Hope it works! Dave - CA
