The jb5824 Jobar scale was working perfectly until it seemed to need a battery change. Dimming, not coming on all the time... We changed the 9v and not it just displays 0.0. We cannot get on it it does nothing. Can someone help me find a manual or some troubleshooting ideas? It seems to want to work. Thanks!
After playing with the remote on this scale for about 30 minutes, I finally found out how to change this display from kg to pounds or stones. Since this scale doesn't come with an instruction manual, I know a lot of people are totally lost. OK, first click the user button once, so that the weight and goal weight show. Then hold down the clock/set button. After a few seconds the kg on the screen will start blinking. Then use your arrow buttons to switch to stones, then to pounds. The lb will show at the top of the display above where the kg was. You can also set your goal weight by pressing the set button and scanning through after setting the lbs setting. Hope this helps!
If it's any consolation my Jobar/Ideaworks JB5413 scale has the a similar problem: will not weigh, yet the remote control functions okay. About one attempt out of ten will cause a weight display, though. Can't figure out why scale works occasionally, vs. never works. Batteries are new, and the battery compartments are free of corrosion.
If it's any consolation, my Jobar/Ideaworks JB5413 has developed the identical symptoms, although occasionally it will start working briefly. Batteries are new, and no corrosion in the battery compartments. I am thinking about just junking this nicely styled scale; what a shame.
Take a 5 pound bag of sugar, flour or what have you. Put it on the scale. If it is off, turn the scale so that you can check every possible place for an adjustment. Adjust and go for it!!! Good luck...Lee
