I have a Health-o-meter but not the same model. Mine still has the instructions pasted (loosely) to the bottom.
The secret is that you must initially press the lower (left or right side) corer for just a second or two. That causes a few dashes and then the scale reads 00.0. Then get on the scale and get your reading.
Alternative behavior:
If you initially press the corner for more than a few seconds it will cycle through User Numbers one through four. If you use that feature it remembers your weight from the last time so you can see the difference.

This indicates the scale is not ready. When stepping on scale, lightly tap the scale to turn on. Wait until the dashes ("- - - -") or "8888" turn to 0.0. Then step on scale.

What does Err3 mean on taylor body fat scale?


Remove your shoes and socks and wet your feet slightly with a damp cloth if you receive the "ERR3" error. ERR3 is a contact error and your feet should ideally be bare and wet to achieve an accurate body-fat reading.
  • Step off the scale and wait for it reset. Remove your shoes and socks and wet your feet slightly if you receive either the "ERR4" or "ERR5" errors, which means your body-fat or body measurements are out of range.
  • Reset the scale if it doesn't work or you continue to receive error messages. Remove the battery and set the scale on a flat surface. Stand still on the scale for five seconds and step off. Re-install the battery and place the scale back on the flat surface. Place one foot on the scale until it displays zeros or dashes. Remove your foot and wait for the scale to turn off. Step back on the scale to weigh yourself

    Error 2 . How can we solve this problem. Thank you, Margaret


    I found this procedure which was given by Taran_2005. I just come to try him(it) on mine, that works.

    "The following reset procedure is used when the scale shows an err2, err, 0.0, inaccurate weight, or some other unusual error.
    1. Remove the battery from the scale.
    2. Sit the scale on a hard surface floor.
    3. Step up onto the scale, stand still for about 5 seconds and step off the scale.
    4. Re-install your battery.
    5. Place the scale back on a hard surface floor.
    6. With one foot only, place just enough weight on the scale for the display shows zero's or dashes. Once you see zeros or dashes remove your foot.
    7. Wait for the scale to turn off again.
    8. Step up onto the scale for a weight.
    If the reset is successful, you should receive a weight right away."

    I have two Taylor Lithium scales and neither one of them will turn on. I have replaced the batteries, still they will not turn on. I have done a "reboot" as suggested on FixYa, but without...


    The scale may need to be initialized. This process is necessary because the scale was moved during the shipping process. Initializing the scale "re-seats" the internal parts allowing the scale to find the correct "zero." Here is how to initialize your scale:
    - Place the scale back on a hard surface floor.
    - With one foot only, place just enough weight on the scale for the display shows zero's or dashes. Once you see zeros or dashes remove your foot.
    - Wait for the scale to turn off again.
    - Step up onto the scale for a weight.

    Or, your scale may be on an uneven surface or on carpet. Be sure to place your scale on a hard, flat surface to get an accurate weighing. Are you sure that the place the new battery with the "+" sign up into the battery compartment?

    Keep us updated.

    THE SCALE WE HAVE IS A "TAYLOR CAL MAX BIGGEST LOSER SCALE" AND IT ALWAYS SHOWS "ERR1" WHEN YOU STEO ON IT.


    When you step on it and get the err1 message step off wait a few seconds and step back on, remember that while the scale is processing your weight you MUST remain STILL.
    good luck

    Taylor 7532S, battery replaced, error message 0-Ld


    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 a Taylor body fat analyzer and scale model #5563 that keeps showing Err 2. It won't read any weight whatsoever... it just goes stratight to the Error message. Do you know what that means and how I...


    From the Taylor Site http://www.taylorusa.com/faq-scales

    Here are the basic ERR messages and their meanings:
    • Error 0: Initialization
    • Error 1: Instability (scale is on an uneven surface ex: carpet)
    • Error 2: Unit may have been jarred or unit was overloaded (customer went over the maximum weight capacity)
    • Error 3: Contact error (Feet were not wet for Body fat reading, feet aren’t big enough to reach sensors)
    • Error 4: Body fat is out of range
    • Error 5: Water is out of range
    I got an ERR2 message and now the scale doesn’t work. What should I do? The following reset procedure is used when the scale shows an err2, err, 0.0, inaccurate weight, or some other unusual error.
    1. Remove the battery from the scale.
    2. Sit the scale on a hard surface floor.
    3. Step up onto the scale, stand still for about 5 seconds and step off the scale.
    4. Re-install your battery.
    5. Place the scale back on a hard surface floor.
    6. With one foot only, place just enough weight on the scale for the display shows zero’s or dashes. Once you see zeros or dashes remove your foot.
    7. Wait for the scale to turn off again.
    8. Step up onto the scale for a weight.
    If the reset is successful, you should receive a weight right away. If you continue to receive one of the error messages above please call our Customer Service department or contact us via email. You can also try the reset procedure a 2nd time. Sometimes the reset procedure will work the second time.
