SOURCE: error message

Try this, I have the same problem and I just got off the phone with Taylor, this is what they told me to do and my scale is now working again.
1. take the battery out.
2. put the scale on a flat, hard surface
3. stand on the scale for 10 seconds
4. put the battery back in, be careful not to touch any buttons or turn the scale on
5. put the scale back on the flat, hard surface
6. put one foot on the scale and apply pressure until the display comes on
7. take your foot off of the scale
8. wait for the the display to go blank
9. now stand on the scale to weigh yourself.

This worked for me. Hope that it works for all of you.

SOURCE: Error message ErrL

My scale had the same problem.  I replaced the battery, but still got the same message.  My wife noticed that one of the feet on the bottom of the scale was loose.  The feet are twisted on to the scale and held by two small flanges.  When I gently pulled the loose foot away I noticed that a small black wire had broke.  I used my fingernails to remove a small bit of the wiring cover and twisted the ends back together.  I then hide the wires back in a recessed area on the foot and placed it back on the scale.  Worked just like the day I got it.   Hope this helps!

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!!!

Tanita BC 543. I need to clear the memory held under buttons 1-4 to allow new people to use machine and update age etc


leave the scale off, and only press "set".
the scale will flash "1234"
choose your number with the ^ v arrows and press set.
all options will then be open to be set.

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
