SOURCE: Tanita, the Ultimate Scale

The scale may have instructions on the bottom of the scale. (Example for the Tanita: The Ultimate Scale w/ the body fat analysis). The instructions on the back state the following steps: Step 1: press both the "Set" and the triangle buttons. Step 2: press the "triangle" button until you select the appropriate weight measurement (a) kilogram, (b) stone lbs or (c) lbs. Step 3: press the set button.

SOURCE: New Scale out of box will not weigh correctly

Take a 5 pound bag of sugar, flour or what have you. Put it on the scale. If it is off, turn the scale so that you can check every possible place for an adjustment. Adjust and go for it!!! Good luck...Lee

SOURCE: Just purchased the Ideaworks Large Capacity Bath

If it's any consolation, my Jobar/Ideaworks JB5413 has developed the identical symptoms, although occasionally it will start working briefly. Batteries are new, and no corrosion in the battery compartments. I am thinking about just junking this nicely styled scale; what a shame.

SOURCE: when set on lb,pounds, scale

Hi dogwalk564,

Make sure of the following:

Be sure to place the luggage in the dead center of the scale, this will distribute weight evenly across the scale, also try to keep it on a level floor, any slight incline or decline to a side of the scale, will give you a bad reading.

How do you know the scale is incorrect, how do you reference it to the current reading?

Kind Regards

My scales show 3.5 kg lighter than actual reading. What can I do?

check at the back of the scales for an adjustment screw or knob
to make the adjustment you will need items of known fixed mass over say 2 lb to 40 lb
you can do this by accurately measuring 1/2 gallon , 1 gallon 2 gallon 4ga;;ons of water as it is 10 lb to the gallon
there may be a pdf version download on the net if you go google and type in--- user manual for (make and model ) scales

Escali scale wont turn on

Step on the scale and immediately step OFF and the scale will then be ready to weigh you. If this does not work, then you need to replace the battery.

How switch the unit?

sometimes depending on the scale you have if there is not a units key you have to turn the power off, then while holding one of the other keys down, turn the power on and the units will change. if something else comes up that doesn't make sense just power the scale off and when you turn it back on it will be back in weigh mode

Fat reading accuracy problem

You must not be dehydrated - do not use first thing in the morning or immediately after a workout or after consuming alcohol. Use 3 hours after a meal and after voiding your bladder. Women may experience fluctuations with retaining water, and those on diuretics may see inaccurate readings. You need to weigh yourself without clothes.
