Your salter scale has a 15 year warranty. I would call the customer service number 1-866-843-3905 and ask them why it won't zero to weigh anything. They may replace your product.

I had the same problem with my Salter 987 scale. Pull the battery out for about 10 seconds and put it back in. Then push the scale once so it turns on. After the blinking stops, push it once more. The scale will now zero itself. After the scale has zero'd itself it may turn off after a brief moment. It's now ready to use normally. If you're standing on the scale when it's trying to calibrate to zero, it will assume your weight is zero. Don't stand on the scale after replacing the battery untill you first complete the steps listed above.

Here's how I fixed mine. Same model, same EL fault but I cant be sure which of two things fixed the problem. This is what I did:
Turn the scales over so the side you stand on faces the floor. Remove the holding springs on the base of the unit. Keep the unit compressed as you do this.Turn the unit over so it is facing right way up, still keeping it compressed.
Remove the top of the unit to reveal the weighing mechanism and display electronics. I found two faults on mine
#1 the levers had come apart and one side was no longer in contact with the force sensor (EL = element maybe?)
#2 there was some corrosion bridging the tracks on the pcb (green circuit board to the right of the display) (EL = electronics maybe)
Putting the levers back together is a little tricky but if you can do a jigsaw, you can put the parts back together. The only trick I found was to orient the levers at 90 degrees to their normal orientation (i.e. put them on their sides) push them through the gaps in the holding brace then turn them back to be right side up. It was easier to put the center of the levers together first, then mount them properly at each corner.
I scraped off the corrosion on the pcb using a tiny screwdriver and blew off the residue. It seemed to be water or soap and came off easily.
Test it to see if that fixed the problem before you put it together because I found getting the springs back the trickiest part of the job. Test it by pressing the switch on the bottom right foot as you face it it should switch on - do the moving 8 thing, then respond as you apply force to the force sensor.
Putting it back together is the reverse of the removal but this time you should use thin nosed pliers to pull the springs up and over the holding bar.
