I have an old toledo electronic scale that I need to reset? This is an old electronic scale and it is flashing 0000. The name on the machine is Toledo Sentinel III model 8420
To Whom It May Concern:
I have access to the same model you mention in your post. It was handed to me for repair and I did my best to track down a schematic for Toledo Scale model 8420. Coincidentally I happen to work in the same neighborhood that Mettler-Toledo is located and getting to their CSR was easy. Bad news is this same CSR who is what we in the industry call a "Lifer" didn't have any of the service documentation for this 25+ year-old scale.
Good news is I made a request to the original owner not to throw out the scale once I returned it. If you are interested in buying the scale "as-is" and salvaging the parts needed to solve your reset and 0000 problem, this may be your best opportunity. I don't know as of this writing what the original owner, a restaurateur, will ask for the scale but estimate it won't be much. These scales are industrial strength and this particular one is in great cosmetic condition.
Because I am new to Fixya and don't have the patience to set up an account presently, you will have to post your reply as you did for your initial question. I will check the site in a couple of days to see what has transpired and go from there.
