Question about Tanita TBF 310 High Capacity Pro Body Composition Monitor

2 Answers

My Tanita TBF310 is telling me I weigh approximately half of what I weighed yesterday.....don't think it is possible to lose 107lbs in one day. How do I reset it?

    That was the first thing I tried (the kg/lb button)......no luck....still having the same problem.

  • pthespian Aug 23, 2010

    I did try that and, unfortunately, it doesn't seem to have done the trick. Anything else I can try?

  • pthespian Aug 23, 2010

    Verified that it was in pound mode, unplugged it for 30 mins. and then tried it, etc....it still is not giving anywhere near an accurate reading...HELP!

One way to reset devices is to take the batteries out overnight. It's possible that the batteries are low, and check that. Also make sure the battery contacts on the batteries and inside the machine are clean. Other than that, it's going to be something that will require the machine to be troublshot, which means disassembled, most likely. Others have had problems, as this site review attests:

I would bug them for my money back, and get another brand. Too many people have complained about this unit, and that's never a good sign.
Here is their web support site:

Good luck, and hope this helps.

Try first from the upper right button to see if it is not changed by mistake in KG ...this should explain the half of the reading cause one kg its about 2 pounds...

    than to reset it ..I believe it will be enough to remove any power source from it ...cord or batteries...leave it for a while ..and after that power it back ..It might be needed to set your preferences again ..but I think this will reset to factory settings ..

If a pig weighs 30kg plus half its own weight, how much does the pig weigh? how is the answer 60kg


It is easy. The pig can only weight once = so make it X.If it weighs 30kgs plus half of it weigh so it it simple when you know it is 60. Then X is 60If it does weigh 60 - so it does weigh 60x1/2 (which is 30 = half of its own weigh) plus 30 which was given at the beginning.
If you do not know the answer - there could be lots of answers. This is a tricky question.Regards

Tells different wieght each time


Does it tell you a different weight each time you weigh yourself in the same few times? Or day by day?
If its consecutive uses that give you different weights, if you're within 0.2kg, I wouldn't be surprised if the scale can't do better.
Otherwise, weigh yourself each day at the same time, and take an average of 3 weighings for the 'best' weighing.

Getting error E 11 on unit.


ok here is what I found: •E - 11 is displayed when there is a loose connection between the control box and the weighing platform.•Confirm that none of connections between the scale and control box are loose or unplugged.•There may be excessive vibration which will disturb the measurement process.
you can dowload the manual here http://www.tanita.com/en/tbf-300a/184-catId.520093719.html. If those solutions do not work i reccomend contacting the manufacturer here http://www.tanita.com/en/contact-us/ as the unit may be under a warranty.

When setting Tanita scales specifics, after set, I get an error


I had the same problem with the error message coming up and emailed Tanita. The regional representative contacted me by email. He had me check with new batteries and clean the contacts. Then he cross-referenced my model and lot numbers and said that my scale was still under warranty and if it met the warranty criteria would be replaced. Tanita has a 10 year warranty on this scale and my scale was 5 years old. He gave me an RMA# to submit with my receipt and about 10 days later I had my replacement scale!! Fantastic Customer Service! Thank you Tanita!!!
