SOURCE: 'out 2' error message shows
Below is a solution for the "Out2" error on the Salter scales.
I have a Salter Model 1400. It was dropped and started to display the "out2" error on the LCD display. I looked for solutions on-line but could not find anything which showed a solution. With no solution in hand I figured I would at least try to find out if my scale was salvageable. I removed the screws, there are two below the 9V battery, two under the footpads, two under the "model sticker", and two larger screws holding the scale plate to the base. After all the screws are successsfull removed, the case of the scale comes apart easily. I started looking at the small circuit board and looked for damage, and also tried several things, turned on and off the unit while it was apart but still saw the "out2" error. I then removed the circuit board, there are many screws holding it down. Looking at the LCD display, I noticed that there must be proper contact between the LCD display and the copper contacts on the circuit board, or nothing is displayed. Perhaps, "out2" is an indication that it can not display "out" anything because after it was dropped the LCD display moved enough that it no longer aligned with the contacts on the circuit board. I noticed that there is quite a bit of "play" or area of movement around the LCD display and the case. There were no cracks or damage so I assume that the loose LCD display is common even with a scale that was not dropped. I was able to align the LCD display, by moving it several times and realized that after pressing the ON button, I no longer saw the out2 error. So I decided to put something in between the LCD display and the case so that the LCD display would not move and therefore would align. It took some playing around, but I eventually took a very small piece of papertowl, about the size of my thumbnail and rolled it up and placed it between the LCD display so it made the LCD display snug and would no longer move around. I screwed on the circuit board, and voila, no more out2 error! It started working perfectly.

I had already solved this after a lot of playing and research, put I thought I;d post it on here for others as the answer was different for other scales listed here. What I did was press the 'Button 1' and 'Button 2' together for 5 seconds. This powered it up and then the display showed 'Cal' with a number on the screen. I pressed 'Button 1' again and it said 'Zero' and then displayed the numbers '0000'. Then I added 1kg of weight and it said 'Cal1'. Then I added 3kg of weight. It said 'Cal2'. Then I added 5kg of weight. It said 'Cal3', then 'Pass'. It then returned to normal mode and now started weighing correctly. I calibrated the weights (Flour and Sugar packs) on another set of scales first, but they were only a few grammes wrong so would be close enough anyway. I hope that helps!
