Question about Taylor 9857 Electronic Digital Bathroom Scale
I got a low battery reading so I changed the 9 V battery and I continue to get a low battery reading. I have tried several new batteries but the message continues to show batt and it won't show weight anymore.

Try to reset the unit. Use the following steps
- Open the battery compartment on the bottom of the scale. Push the tab on the door and lift the cover.
- Remove the battery from the compartment. Close the battery compartment door.
- Sit the scale right side up on a hard surface floor.
- Step on the scale and stand still on it for five to ten seconds. Step off the scale.
- Turn the scale over and open the battery compartment. Re-insert the battery. Close the battery compartment cover.
- Place the scale right side up on the hard surface floor.
- Press one foot on the scale until the display shows zeroes or dashes. Remove your foot.
- Wait for the scale to shut off by itself. When you step back onto the scale, it will be reset.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

I have the 9876 also. After 2-3 yrs it quit. W/ new battery it does the walking o's, then ERR1. I opened it and found that it uses a strain gauge, read by an MCU. The wires leading to the strain gauge were crushed between the top of the gauge and the plastic top cover. If I wiggle the wires I get a reading , but inaccurate. Then when they lose connection, there's no reading. Considering the slop in the metal links to the strain gauge, I don't consider it repairable.
