Question about Taylor Body Composition Scale 5749bl ()

Open Question

All of a sudden our scale (Model 5738EF) would not initialize at zero so we are unable to get a weight reading when we step on it. We have put in two new batteries and it is still the same. We have misplaced out instructions so we would appreciate your help. Thnaks Dave Holland

SOURCE: 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

Dashes


I have a Health-o-meter but not the same model. Mine still has the instructions pasted (loosely) to the bottom.
The secret is that you must initially press the lower (left or right side) corer for just a second or two. That causes a few dashes and then the scale reads 00.0. Then get on the scale and get your reading.
Alternative behavior:
If you initially press the corner for more than a few seconds it will cycle through User Numbers one through four. If you use that feature it remembers your weight from the last time so you can see the difference.

I have two Taylor Lithium scales and neither one of them will turn on. I have replaced the batteries, still they will not turn on. I have done a "reboot" as suggested on FixYa, but without...


The scale may need to be initialized. This process is necessary because the scale was moved during the shipping process. Initializing the scale "re-seats" the internal parts allowing the scale to find the correct "zero." Here is how to initialize your scale:
- Place the scale back on a hard surface floor.
- With one foot only, place just enough weight on the scale for the display shows zero's or dashes. Once you see zeros or dashes remove your foot.
- Wait for the scale to turn off again.
- Step up onto the scale for a weight.

Or, your scale may be on an uneven surface or on carpet. Be sure to place your scale on a hard, flat surface to get an accurate weighing. Are you sure that the place the new battery with the "+" sign up into the battery compartment?

Keep us updated.

I have a Taylor body fat analyzer and scale model #5563 that keeps showing Err 2. It won't read any weight whatsoever... it just goes stratight to the Error message. Do you know what that means and how I...


From the Taylor Site http://www.taylorusa.com/faq-scales

Here are the basic ERR messages and their meanings:
  • Error 0: Initialization
  • Error 1: Instability (scale is on an uneven surface ex: carpet)
  • Error 2: Unit may have been jarred or unit was overloaded (customer went over the maximum weight capacity)
  • Error 3: Contact error (Feet were not wet for Body fat reading, feet aren’t big enough to reach sensors)
  • Error 4: Body fat is out of range
  • Error 5: Water is out of range
I got an ERR2 message and now the scale doesn’t work. What should I do? The following reset procedure is used when the scale shows an err2, err, 0.0, inaccurate weight, or some other unusual error.
  1. Remove the battery from the scale.
  2. Sit the scale on a hard surface floor.
  3. Step up onto the scale, stand still for about 5 seconds and step off the scale.
  4. Re-install your battery.
  5. Place the scale back on a hard surface floor.
  6. With one foot only, place just enough weight on the scale for the display shows zero’s or dashes. Once you see zeros or dashes remove your foot.
  7. Wait for the scale to turn off again.
  8. Step up onto the scale for a weight.
If the reset is successful, you should receive a weight right away. If you continue to receive one of the error messages above please call our Customer Service department or contact us via email. You can also try the reset procedure a 2nd time. Sometimes the reset procedure will work the second time.

I have a chefmate nutritional scale that was working fine,then all of a sudden the screen started saying out2. replaced batteries but nothing so far.


It is not OUT2, but rather OUE2, which means your chefmate needs to re calibrate. To do that you will need the following:

a 2000 grams weight or 4.4 lbs, I used a 3lbs protein jug unopenened and a 600 grams glutamine bottle unopened.

Ok so turn your scale off then:

1) press the ON button and leave it press while simultaneously pressing once the TARE button (though it may need more than one or maybe leaving it press for a few secs thought try just hitting it once first), release the TARE and you should see a CAL on the screen (top left), release the ON and it will read:

2) the number 00000 on the first line will appear, click TARE

-this calibrates no weight first-

3) then it will read you another weight mine read 2000 grams, put that weight on top of the scale (NOTE every scale uses a different weight to calibrate i am giving you mine) once you put it there hit tare and it should read PASS

4) Remove the weight and it should read "0", mine read first 1 grm so i had to re do it again until i got 0.

5) You can try weighting different unopened things that you know the weight of, but if not just turn it OFF then back ON and it should read "0"

Congratulations your scale is now calibrated and ready to use again!!!!


NOTES: i have the electric scale if the on tare button does not works for you it may need a different combination to calibrate.

I changed the battery on bathroom scale Salter 987


I had the same problem with my Salter 987 scale. Pull the battery out for about 10 seconds and put it back in. Then push the scale once so it turns on. After the blinking stops, push it once more. The scale will now zero itself. After the scale has zero'd itself it may turn off after a brief moment. It's now ready to use normally. If you're standing on the scale when it's trying to calibrate to zero, it will assume your weight is zero. Don't stand on the scale after replacing the battery untill you first complete the steps listed above.

Weight watcher scale not calibrating weight correctly


Press the scale once with your foot. All screen options should display to initialize and then go to 0.0. Now step on the scale. It should read out your correct weight. If not, first remove and replace the battery for reset. If still not, replace the battery. If still not it's ready for return or replacement. Hope it works! Dave - CA
