Question about Tanita Jenny Craig Glass Digital Lithium Healthytrack Scale

1 Answer

This scale stopped working this afternoon. I have changed the batteries (all 3) and the screen remains blank, but with a shadow of all the info that can be entered were it working. I tried pressing each button, but they all feel "dead" and there is no response. Did it die?

    This morning I checked out the scale and the screen was cloudy; I stood it on its side and when I came back, it was clear. I inserted the batteries and was able to put the date in and weighed myself (ugh). Can't program it yet, but perhaps there is damp in it?

If the control light are lit ..but the screen do not light up ..than it is just a matter of the LCD screen which has a faulty connection on the ribbon ..or just died...but if no control leds are lit ..than the power is not present and the unit either is dead or the batteries are not inserted proper ..or just not the right kind of batteries..
try another set of better ones...and if it is still continuing to act like this you need to get it to be seen by a electrician cause it will be necessary to be opened and measured to see what is not functioning ..

    BY the way ..first remove the batteries and insert them again and pay attention on the mapping to be sure that you inserted them in the right way ..after that try a second set of batteries ..but buy some quality ones cause cheap batteries sometime have a low amperage and do not operate well sensitive devices..

    Thanks, the screen does not light up, but glows a bit (I think that is the 9 volt battery that provides the light. The batteries are 2 x 2032 and a 9 volt and appear to be inserted properly. Sounds as it is a goner and cheaper to replace than repair. What do you think?

Reset change engine oil light 2009 ford escape xlt

This is how it works on my 2010 Escape. There are 3 buttons to the lower left of your steering column (Info, Setup, and Reset):
1) when it's displaying the "oil change required" message, hit the "reset" button to get rid of the message2) then hit the "Setup" button twice and you'll see the "oil life" screen, which is now at "0%". It tells you what to do next (i.e. "hold reset" until it say 100%).

My meizu M6 SL player stopped working

Yeah, back to the battery which "showed a charge"

A partially charged nicad will show a full charge, while failing to hold a full charge due to the memory
effect, so these were changed for Lithium Ion batteries with no such effect, but even these will fail after
a certain number of recharge cycles and though the unit is perceived by your laptop or desktop when
connected by USB the actual power to do so is furnished by the usb itself, not necessarily the failing

Change the battery, as the worst possible outcome from this method of troubleshooting is that you wind
up with a spare battery that you can charge while the other one is in use.

If the battery proves not to be the problem and the unit is warranteed, then have it serviced or swapped.

If not warranteed and you can afford a replacement, do so.
