Question about Taylor 5757 Digital Glass Body Fat Scale

1 Answer

Err 4 when I turn m scale on it starts at 6.4 pounds instead of at zero, so I figure I can still weigh mysef and subtract the difference. But I can't even get a weigh, instead Error 4 pops up ad I don't know what that means as I've lost my manual. Help please? Is it a battery thing? I know Error 3 is whn you arn't barefoot or step off before the BF can be annalyzed, but I don't know what error 4 means.

Sounds like it wasn't initialized, even though it says Er 4 instead of Er 0... According to my manual, to (re)initialize it and reset it to zero, tap the platform lightly. It should show zeroes running across the display for a second or two, then show all zeroes and turn off. It should be re-initialized...

Error Codes for the 5757 (according to my manual):

Er 0 Initialization error (remedy described above)

Er 1 Instability error (step off the scale, then back on)

Er 2 Overload warning (registering weight beyond the 440 pound max)

Er 3 Contact error (body impedance beyond technical limit - try dampening feet and try again for better contact)

Er 4 Bodyfat error (bodyfat percentage is beyond range - try dampening feet and try again for better contact)

Er 5 Bodywater error (bodywater percentage is beyond range - try dampening feet and try again for better contact)

Is there a way to calibrate without 3-50 pound weights?


water weighs 10lb to the gallon ( engilish measurement-calculate amount for us gallon)
so get your self a jug and place it on the scales empty adjust the scales to zero
fill the jug with a measured amount of water (example 1 pint will weigh 1.25lbs
then set the scales to the reading of 1.25lbs
to check the scales accuracy you can add extra water to the jug (say 4 pints ) and the scale should read 5lb

Salter scales weighing more than double the weight


Sounds silly but check the scales for a Kilogram or Pounds switch. its usually under the scales and is a sliding switch. It should tell you on the display if you are weighing in pounds or kilos.

I have a DigitZ DZ3-600 and when I turn it on the word FULL in the display screen . What can I do to clear this and start using it?


My search is telling me that this is a scale. Is this correct? If so - this is the manual. \'FULL\' is not an error, but this is the correct model. If this is not a scale, please write again and provide more information:



The manual is short and PASTED after link to same here:



http://digitzscales.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=frontpage



Digitz DZ3-600 Manual




I. Operation


1. Place the scale on a flat, level surface and press the ON/OFF key to turn the scale on.

2. Once the start-up process completes and the scale goes to zero you are ready to weigh.

3. Place the quantity to be weighed onto the weighing platform.

4. Wait a couple seconds for the display to stabilize before taking a weight reading.



II. Changing the Unit of Measure


1. Press the MODE key to change the scales displayed unit of measure.

2. If the scale is turned off then back on, it will default to the last unit used.

• DZ3-100 Units: g (gram) oz (ounce) ct (carat) gn (grain)

• DZ3-600 Units: g (gram) oz (ounce) ozt (troy ounce) dwt (pennyweight)



III. Using the Tare Feature


You can use this scale\'s tare feature to subtract the weight of an empty container or vessel for net weight determination. NOTE: The weight of the container will subtract from the available capacity.

1. Place the empty container or vessel on the weighing platform.

2. Press the TARE key once. The display will then reset to zero. If the container is removed, it\'s weight will be displayed as a negative number.

3. You may now fill the container with the quantity to be weighed. The display will show the net weight of the contents.

4. To return to normal weight display (gross weight), remove any items from the weighing platform and

press the TARE key again to re-zero the scale.



IV. Calibration / Adjustment


1. Turn the scale on by pressing the ON/OFF key.

2. Wait for the display to show "0.0g" or "0.00g" then press and hold the MODE key until the display shows "CAL", then release.

3. Press the MODE key again. The display will flash "CAL" followed by the required calibration weight.

4. Place the required calibration weight on the center of the platform. The display will show "PASS" then return to normal weighing mode. Calibration is complete! You may now turn the scale off.



V. Error Codes


1. OUTZ - Zero range has shifted. Perform calibration adjustment. If the problem persists, the load cell may be permanently damaged due to overloading.



2. 88888 - Maximum capacity exceeded. Remove the extra weight to avoid damaging the load cell.



3. L - Batteries are low. Replace the batteries.



VI. Specifications


DZ3-100 DZ3-600

Max. Capacity 100g 600g

Readability 0.01g 0.1g

Min. Weight 0.03g 0.2g

Power Two (2) AAA Batteries

Dimensions 3.0 x 5.0 x 0.8 in.

Platform Dimensions 2.5 x 3.0 in.

Are you talking 31 "Stone"? If so, I believe that comes out to 434lbs. You are lucky if your scales can read that high. For testing purposes, remove your shoes or more if you think your right at the upper limit. Or let a slightly lighter friend try it. I assume your talking "Stone" as used in the UK. Are you from there? (I,m in the US, in Florida.) Also, there should be a switch on the bottom of the scale (upper left corner) allowing you to switch between lbs, st and kg. You can try that as well, although the limit should be basically identical. If you tell me more, I can help you more.
(By the way, I weigh 197 lbs right now, that's 14 stone.)

How can I weigh my dog, it will not hold still on the scales?


This is really easy! Weigh yourself alone, then weigh yourself holding the dog, then subtract your own weight from both of you's weight. You can also ask your vet to weigh your dog for you.

Scales are getting a Err 1 message, installed new batteries, need to reset them some how. They will not zero themselves out


My scale was fine the other day. I weighed myself earlier in the day. I tried to weigh myself later in the day and the scale started reading ERR1. I called Taylor and they had me try to "reset" the scale twice. It did not work.

The steps for resetting it are:

Turn the scale over
Remove the batteries for at least 10 seconds
With the scale on it's side (even though you aren't supposed to put the scale on it's side, carefully insert the batteries and put the back on the scale
Slowly return the scale to a flat hard surface
Step on the scale after about 10 seconds of it being back in position
If the scale still jumps with crazy numbers and reads ERR1 try to reset the scale again being very careful when the scale is on it's side
If this does not correct the problem then the scale will need to be returned to the manufacturer, to the address on the label on the bottom of the scale
I was told you could put the scale in any box and ship it to them the cheapest way possible but be sure to keep the batteries with you
If you are still under the year warranty they will send you out a new scale in 4-6 weeks

I was not happy that my scale was purchased on 11/14/09 and it died on 02/12/10. Luckily I knew where my receipt was. I pulled it out and noticed 02/12/10 was the last date to make returns to Target for that transaction. I was able to go and return my scale to the store because it was in the 90-day window that I had purchased it.

I was told that the reason the scale was doing this was either an delayed electrical interference that may have occurred during. The only other reason I was given was an OVERLOAD. Well, I seriously doubt an overload was my issue. First of all I was the only person at home that day so nobody else stood on the scale. I had used it earlier in the day and it was accurate. I am 5'6" and 139 lbs. so I seriously doubt it was OVERLOAD unless someone isn't telling me something and I need to lose some serious weight.

Anyway, I hope this helps. I wasted a lot of time trying to figure it out that day. Now I have my new receipt and if this happens again I will go get my new scale just as I did this time. I thought a 4-6 week wait for a replacement scale was insane. Kudos to Target for taking the scale back without a box or instructions on the last day I was able to make a return.

Err 1 message on Taylor Lithium Elec Scale model 7346


This is a reply I received from Taylor customer support. I have followed this procedure enough times to wear out the original battery and still get the Err 1 message. You may have better luck.

Thank you for your e-mail. The reboot below may clear the error from
your scale. You may need to do this several times to completely reboot
the system. Please let us know if you have any questions or continue to
display the Error.


1. Remove the battery from the scale
2. Set the scale on the floor without the battery in place.
3. Stand on the scale for 10 seconds (still without the battery)
4. Carefully replace the battery without turning the scale on.
5. Using only one foot, tap the scale or apply just enough pressure to
turn on the display. (It should show dashes or zero's) IMMEDIATELY
REMOVE YOUR FOOT.
6. Let the scale turn off
7. Step on the scale for a weight reading
