    Just change the batteries with new fresh ones.
    I got mine 2204/2001 from a garage sale with batteries. It showed Lo. I had checked the old battteries inacurately so I thought it couldn't be batteries but it was!

It is possible the replacement batteries are defective, the wrong type, or not installed correctly.

In the event that the scale battery needs to be replaced, (display shows "Lo"),
open the battery cover on the bottom of the scale and replace the old battery with
a new 3V lithium battery.

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: http://www.tanita.com/en/contact-customer-service/

They should stand behind their products.

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

Handie Andie

Hello, my new device Tanita BC 532 measure weight and body fat%, but no reaction when I try to press rest of the featured keys. I use the description attached, and the weigth and fat% showes alternly on...


My Tanita BC-532 also developed this fault. It seems to be common with a number of the models! I asked Tanita and over a number of emails this is what they said:

"not to place it in wet rooms and remove the batteries if stored for a longer time period."

When I said it was in a bathroom (isn't that where everyone keeps their scales) NOT a wet room - they said any bathroom is classed as a wetroom!
When I said how can you tell if the batteries are just about to run out (that's what seems to trigger the fault) I had no reply; and when I asked how long is a "long period of time" - 2 weeks/ 2 months (we used to use ours every 1-2 weeks) again no reply to this question.

Now out of warranty after 5 years Tanita suggested it I didn't follow either of these instructions above (in the manual, but not defined) then I only have myself to blame. They did suggest one remedy was to:


"1.Take out the batteries.


2.Make a short-circuit between (+) and (-)with a piece of wire.


3.Put the batteries back and try it out.


If that doesn't work, you simply have to discard it. "

Personally I don't think this is satisfactory and I won't buy Tanita again. Scales should last much longer. They should make any warnings clearly defined - especially based on the number of times this happens according to reports from users on internet.

It seems this is a well known fault and I would thus suggest scales are not fit for purpose over longer term. Tanita should own up to this and stop avoiding their responsibilities.

Should you not keep in the bathroom, use every few days, and replace batteries before they get too low - then these scales are great (well they were for the first 5 years!)

CALIBRATING A TANITA KD-200-110 DIGITAL SCALE.


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.

Tanita Ultimate Scale 2001 - no user manual -how to set it?


does your scale have an orange SET button and a button with a triangle (or arrow) below the display?

Try this... make sure the scale is turned off. (and you are not standing on it)

Now press the SET button.
2 arrows should appear on the display. use the arrow/triangle key below the display to make changes and the SET key to choose.

If you have the same scale as me, you are prompted to chose Adult/Child followed by Male/Female, and finally input your height in feet/inches by pushing the arrow/triangle key until the display shows the desired height.

Press SET to finish and step on the scale like you usually do. It will now show your weight followed by your body fat %.

Hope this helps you!

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!!!

Press the Set and Up Arrow buttons at the same time. Release the buttons, the display will flash. Press the Arrow button to cycle through each weight mode until just the mode that you require is displayed. Then press Set. The display screen will flash to confirm your selection and store in memory.
Note: If weight mode is set to pounds or stone-pounds, the height programming mode will be automatically set to feet and inches. Similarly, if kilograms is selected, height will be automatically set to centimeters.
