I have a Prodeux Deluxe Electronic Body Weight Scale Model PEB-215N - less than a year old. When I try to weigh myself, it registers anywhere from 56- 248 lbs. I'm somewhere in the 170-180 range. How can I get an accurate reading?

SOURCE: My weight is not accurate.

Very few electronic scales are accurate as they are a function of a resistance measured against a voltage. They may be accurate when you buy them, but over time the electronic components decay and read differently as the components are cheap 10% type resistors and capacitors and cannot hold their specific values over time.
If you want accuracy, you will have to get a balance type scale that can be calibrated on site.

I can't set the body fat on my Health o meter and it gives me an E every time I try to weigh myself.


The Error message may be indicative of a defect in the scale but could appear because the parameters you enter cannot be processed. Try again to get a manual by Googling (Health o meter)(BFM688D-60)(manual) without parens.

For seca 763 having problem with the display. All led segment was displayed and weight is varying.Kindly help.


Try weighing an inanimate object, is the weight stable? Maybe you're stabalizing yourself by holding on to something? That will throw it off. all weight must be on the base and not moving to get an accurate reading. If it's still unstable it need new weight sensors and calibration. Probably not a DIY.

Er: 1: 11 appears anytime anyone tries to weigh themselves.


I do not know this particular scale, but you might try this solution that works with many electronic scales. To activate the scale, lightly tap the scale, placing enough weight on the scale to initiate the electronic process. (A foot tap will do.) Wait for the display to show 0000 (or whatever the ready state display of your unit is), and THEN step on the scale.

Gives me diffrent weights even though I am weighing myself within seconds of time, and in the same spot on the floor.


I've found I have to weigh myself, step off, weigh myself with something in my something heavy in my hands, then weigh myself again. The 3rd weight you get will be your correct weight. If you needed the manual, I have uploaded in into photobucket...although it doesn't really address this issue.

Hello. If you remove the battery for two minutes and then reinsert it, it will reset the scale to factory settings. Joe

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.
