Question about Starrett T216XRL-1 - MICROMETER, DIGITAL

Open Question

I replaced the battery on a 786 starrett blade mic and now the display works fine, but as I move the mic the display stays on 0.000, I was wondering if there is a reset or something that I do not know about?

Starrett no 731

Are you certain the battery is installed correctly? Many electronics won't work if the battery is installed backward/upside down. Do not ask how I know this....[-:

Shut down starrett 733

On some Starrett calipers, there is no way of turnig them off, which means about once a year you have to replace the battery. sorry

I have a Starrett 749 micrometer that will not power up I replaced the battery but still nothing

I have a Sterrett 733XFL-1 (O-1" Digital Mic). It turns out that these will only use the Renata Batteries. (Radio Shack Batteries are Renata and some Battery Stores Carry Them). The Renata CR2450 has a smaller diameter negative terminal (smaller diamter back half of battery). If you use an engergizer or other, the battery cover will short against the positive battery terminal and the tool will not work (and the battery will quickly drain being shorted to case)

I just aquired a Starrett 721 digital caliper that wouldn't turn on. Took cover off and batteries were in reversed polarity. New batteries didn't help. Is the display fried?

More than likely. But to make sure: check that new battery is good (voltmeter). Check with ohmmeter across the battery contacts - should read few hundred ohms to few kiloohms. If OK, reinseret battery. Push ON button. Push reset button. If go, congrats. If not, get another caliper.

Starret 734 Caliper will not power up

OK, I fixed it! After hearing back from Starrett, it seems that a RENATA battery is the only one that fits right. I went out to Radio Shack and checked their stock, which turns out to be manufactured by RENATA. The new battey works fine... It did take a try or two to get the display cleared, then Error04, now it's working again.

Good luck!

Micrometers out of calibration

Micrometers must be calibrated at 4 spots around the barrel and at zero and full scale to be truly accurate. You will have to send it to a calibration lab or back to Starrett for a full calibration because they will check it with gauge blocks of known length and verify the spindle and anvil surface flatness.

If you are only concerned with the zero and not as much about the full accuracy of the tool, then you can reset the zero yourself. With the mic fully closed (spindle and anvil touching), turn the barrel with the funky, half circle shaped wrench that came with the mic in the box. There is a little hole in the barrel where the nub on the wrench will fit then you just turn it until it reads zero. Good luck.
