My tanita bc557 scale

With all product that is new Garrick, You need to refer to the information paperwork that comes with that product. I hope you saved it and put it in a safe place for future use like now. Refer to it often, and learn how to get help for to fix it. Some of these modern gadgets come with instructions for what type of batteries that are not always included. So go back to the information booklet or instruction manual and that even has an address that you can get further information to get help there with the manufacturers. Good Luck in Your Seach for a solution.

I walk a lot so have bought a Tanita pedometer PD-724.Cannot seem to set stride length Help, Iam 78

That's okay Dorothy ...

I won't hold your youth & in-experience against you.
(Walk a lot: Good girl!)

Tried (really) looking it up... (below) 3 axes pedometer

Seems 2 B a serious brain teaser. .. but if you have the numbers... weight and stride length.. you just advance to those settings with your mode control.

The only ISSUE I can imagine: you could have your stride length... in CENTIMETERS (METRIC)... So if your stride is
30 inches... that equals 76.2 CM (centimeters).

if you underestimate your stride a little... It will make you feel like you accomplished more... (and who's to tell).

You go girl...

Comment me back if that didn't do it for you.

My Tanita PD-724 keeps resetting to zero during the day and also resetting the clock at random times

The same thing has been happening for me. I don't have a tried and tested solution, but I'm suspecting that it's when I keep the pedometer in the same pocket as my mobile phone. I'll make sure I don't do that and report back if it still resets.

On my Tanita BC-534, I just changed the batteries but now continually get "Lo" in the display. So tested batteries and even tried other batteries, but still get the same message. Please let me...

Hi BJ,

Welcome to fixya!

According to the manual, "Lo" indicates weak batteries. Since you changed batteries, my next question would be... Did you buy fresh batteries at the store or use ones you had at the house? Check the freshness date on the battery package. Sometimes even some of the ones you get in stores aren't fresh enough.

Since you get enough power to get "Lo" reading, but not enough for anything else, this sounds like a battery problem.
Did you check the contacts in the battery compartment? Sometimes cleaning them with a pencil eraser will help make better contact. Also, be sure the springs are tight enough. If they are the tab kind, you can bend them out a little for a tighter fit.

If all else fails, here is the contact page for Tanita:

They should stand behind their products.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

Need to reset scale bf-681 tanita scale

I have a tanita body composition scale BC-534. It suddenly stopped working. I have new batteries. Is there a way to reset the digital disolay?

According to Tanita, you must send the scale back to the factory to adjust the calibration. As of September 2011 the cost is $125.00

This is more the scale costs.

Moral of the story. Don't buy Tanita.

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!!!
