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!!!

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
