SOURCE: resetting the scale
You do not reset the scale. It only saves the last recorded weight of the user. So, if you weighed yesterday, it will put your recorded weight in memory. The next time you select your user number and step on the scale, it will compute the difference from your previous record and save your current weight.

Try putting brand new batteries in and letting the scale zero out and then shut off on its own. Sometimes it's "zero" is misrepresented by an old set of batteries. Also, do any kids live in the house that might have jumped on it? If so, it would be wise to buy a new one as the sensitivity will be ruined for life.

I got it! Press "set". You should see "start goal" in the bottom right. Press the user # you want to save as and press "set" again. The display will blink then display "0.0". Step on the scale to get your current weight. Once it's read you current weight, press "set". A goal weight will display. Press "User 1" to make your goal weight go up and "User 2" to make it go down. Press "set" when the display shows your goal weight. That's it. Now all you have to do is press your user # and wait for "0.0" to display before stepping on the scale.

"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:
out the batteries.
short-circuit between (+) and (-)with a piece of wire.
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!)
