Hi.

That means that our personal data has not been programmed, follow the steps on p.3 on manual below.
Make sure socks or stockings are removed, and the soles of your feet are clean and properly aligned with the guides on the measuring platform.

If that does not work, try using guest mode ( one time wighting with no programming). If the unit does not set up in guest mode, or if does not self program, contact the manufacturer, as unit may be faulty. Contact page.

Hello, my new device Tanita BC 532 measure weight and body fat%, but no reaction when I try to press rest of the featured keys. I use the description attached, and the weigth and fat% showes alternly on...


My Tanita BC-532 also developed this fault. It seems to be common with a number of the models! I asked Tanita and over a number of emails this is what they said:

"not to place it in wet rooms and remove the batteries if stored for a longer time period."

When I said it was in a bathroom (isn't that where everyone keeps their scales) NOT a wet room - they said any bathroom is classed as a wetroom!
When I said how can you tell if the batteries are just about to run out (that's what seems to trigger the fault) I had no reply; and when I asked how long is a "long period of time" - 2 weeks/ 2 months (we used to use ours every 1-2 weeks) again no reply to this question.

Now out of warranty after 5 years Tanita suggested it I didn't follow either of these instructions above (in the manual, but not defined) then I only have myself to blame. They did suggest one remedy was to:


"1.Take out the batteries.


2.Make a short-circuit between (+) and (-)with a piece of wire.


3.Put the batteries back and try it out.


If that doesn't work, you simply have to discard it. "

Personally I don't think this is satisfactory and I won't buy Tanita again. Scales should last much longer. They should make any warnings clearly defined - especially based on the number of times this happens according to reports from users on internet.

It seems this is a well known fault and I would thus suggest scales are not fit for purpose over longer term. Tanita should own up to this and stop avoiding their responsibilities.

Should you not keep in the bathroom, use every few days, and replace batteries before they get too low - then these scales are great (well they were for the first 5 years!)

How do I reset


Hi!


Press the Set button to turn on the unit (once programmed, tapping a Personal
Key turns on the unit.) The unit will beep to confirm activation, the Personal Key
numbers (1,2,3,4) will be displayed, and the display will flash.

If you don’t operate the unit for sixty seconds after the unit has been turned on, the unit
will turn off automatically.

If you make a mistake or want to turn the unit off before you have finished
programming it, press the Weight-Only Key to force quit.


Press the Up/Down buttons to select a Personal Key. Once you reach the
Personal Key number you wish to use, press the Set button.
The unit will beep once to confirm.


An arrow icon appears on the left side to indicate age setting.
Use the Up/Down buttons to scroll through numbers.
When you reach your age -press the Set button.
The unit will beep once to confirm.

Use the Up/Down buttons to scroll through female or male,
Female/Athlete and Male/Athlete settings, then press the Set button.
The unit will beep once to confirm.


Use the Up/Down buttons to specify Height and
then press the Set button.
The unit will beep once to confirm.

The unit will beep twice and the display will flash all data three times to confirm the programming.
The power will shut down automatically.


Good Luck! :)

Ive got a factory radio reading of i have code how do i reset to put in code


When you turn on the radio, it will say "codE" on the display. You have the 4-digit code number for your radio, to enter the first digit, press the "1" button on the radio the number of times until the first digit matches. For example, if your code is "2156" then, press radio preset button 1 two 2 times, then press radio preset button 2 one time, then radio preset button 3 five 5 times and finally preset button 4 six times.
THEN if the display is correct (should show 2156 in this example), press TAPE button. You should hear a beep and the radio should be working. If you make a mistake and enter a wrong code, the display will show "Err". You have 3 tries to get this correct or the radio may be toast. These are the steps for the stock radio in my 1995 GSX and they've worked for me each time I've lost battery power. Good luck!

According to the manual, this indicates either (1) the battery is low and needs to be replaced, or (2) the internal self test is failing when the shutter button is depressed half-way. For the latter condition, they recommend removing the battery completely, then reinserting and pressing the battery check button (second button down under the 'palm' door).

If you still get the blinking 'bc', it indicates the camera needs service.
