I just had this problem on set Salter scales (says 3309 on label on back so assume that's model no) which came up OUT2 solidly after hadn't been used for a while.
Looking on WWW this means on other scales they need to be recalibrated. There are only 2 buttons on ths model ON/Zero and 2nd is mode for grams, oz etc. Discovered by trial and error have to hold down the on button and repeatedly click the measure button as it powers up, screen says err2 press on button again and says 5000g, put 5000g weight on scales, press on button again display says CAL press on button and it at first came up with EEEE and failed but next attempt it said PASS and it all worked again. I used 2 x 1.5kg bags flour and 2 x 1Kg bags sugar to make 5kg with bit tipped out of one to make exact and checked on another set scales. So trick appears to be finding how to get your scales in to calibrate mode and what the weight it expects is.

Solution 1 worked with my 100g digital scales but what to use if you don't have a 100g weight? A lot of thought went into the solution, 2p's weigh 7g so, 10 = 70 then used 3 stock cube which each weigh 10g
Just remember to take wrapping off

### 'out 2' error message shows on a brand new Salter Disc Electronic scale.

Below is a solution for the "Out2" error on the Salter scales.

I have a Salter Model 1400. It was dropped and started to display the "out2" error on the LCD display. I looked for solutions on-line but could not find anything which showed a solution. With no solution in hand I figured I would at least try to find out if my scale was salvageable. I removed the screws, there are two below the 9V battery, two under the footpads, two under the "model sticker", and two larger screws holding the scale plate to the base. After all the screws are successsfull removed, the case of the scale comes apart easily. I started looking at the small circuit board and looked for damage, and also tried several things, turned on and off the unit while it was apart but still saw the "out2" error. I then removed the circuit board, there are many screws holding it down. Looking at the LCD display, I noticed that there must be proper contact between the LCD display and the copper contacts on the circuit board, or nothing is displayed. Perhaps, "out2" is an indication that it can not display "out" anything because after it was dropped the LCD display moved enough that it no longer aligned with the contacts on the circuit board. I noticed that there is quite a bit of "play" or area of movement around the LCD display and the case. There were no cracks or damage so I assume that the loose LCD display is common even with a scale that was not dropped. I was able to align the LCD display, by moving it several times and realized that after pressing the ON button, I no longer saw the out2 error. So I decided to put something in between the LCD display and the case so that the LCD display would not move and therefore would align. It took some playing around, but I eventually took a very small piece of papertowl, about the size of my thumbnail and rolled it up and placed it between the LCD display so it made the LCD display snug and would no longer move around. I screwed on the circuit board, and voila, no more out2 error! It started working perfectly.

### Why dose my proscale orion 150 pocket scale say out2 when I turn it on, and will not change to 0.00?

It's possible that the tray is pushed into max position.
Incurred due to an overload on the tray for a long time or a unprotected transport probably ...
Try turning it on, while holding the tray pulled up (eg scissors sliding under the tray to keep it elevated) and if the scale will show you "0.00", the tray is pressed...

### When i try to weigh something on it it displays 'our2'. And does not work

OUR2 is probably OutZ or Out2, means you have to recalibrate your scale. Refer to your scales manual for instructions on recalibrating, usually you have to turn on your scale, press CAL button, wait till it displays for example 100g, depending on how much your scale can weight, then put that weight, for example 100g on your scale (you can use coins if you don,t have anything else, though be precise as coins can weigh more or less,informationon coins weight can be found in your country national bank site. After you put the weight, it should display OK or PASS, if it's FAIL or the scale turns itself off, it's either broken or the weight is not correct

### My Soehnle scale shows an out2 error - how do I fix?

How to calibrate when "out2" is shown.
With the power off andthe scale on a stable surface, hold "g" and press "on". Some number will show up, probably a negative number. Press the "on" button again and the scale should display "Zero". Wait until it says "200.0". Gently place a 200 gram weight on the scale and wait a few seconds. If your successful it will say "Pass" and your scale will work again, yay!

### Scale displays OUT2

Hi,
you need just to recalibrate it:
The procedure is standard for semi-all models of pocket scales, but the way how to get to calibration mode differs from model to model (or vendor to vendor).
In brief:
1.While turn-on get to the calibration mode (by pressing and holding the ON button, or holding TARE while turinig on) You should hold this "magic" combination until the LCD will show a number (large number - it was more than 2000 in my case). This number is a raw data from the sensor.
2.Now release the "magic" button.
3.Press it one more time, the display will show 2Ero and then 100.0
4.Now put calibrated weight of 100 grams on the scale and wait 3 seconds.
5.Press "magic" button again.The display will show CAL and then PASS.
6.Now remove the weight and turn off the scale.
7.Thats all - now you can use your scale as usually.
