SOURCE: Tanita Ultimate Scale 2001 - no user manual -how to set it?

does your scale have an orange SET button and a button with a triangle (or arrow) below the display?

Try this... make sure the scale is turned off. (and you are not standing on it)

Now press the SET button.
2 arrows should appear on the display. use the arrow/triangle key below the display to make changes and the SET key to choose.

If you have the same scale as me, you are prompted to chose Adult/Child followed by Male/Female, and finally input your height in feet/inches by pushing the arrow/triangle key until the display shows the desired height.

Press SET to finish and step on the scale like you usually do. It will now show your weight followed by your body fat %.

Hope this helps you!

SOURCE: When setting Tanita scales specifics, after set, I get an error

I had the same problem with the error message coming up and emailed Tanita. The regional representative contacted me by email. He had me check with new batteries and clean the contacts. Then he cross-referenced my model and lot numbers and said that my scale was still under warranty and if it met the warranty criteria would be replaced. Tanita has a 10 year warranty on this scale and my scale was 5 years old. He gave me an RMA# to submit with my receipt and about 10 days later I had my replacement scale!! Fantastic Customer Service! Thank you Tanita!!!

Error code r5 on Tanita BF-350


Just spoke with Tanita Tech support- r5 indicates if the scale is in PC mode (able to receive data from scale). There is a button sequence to toggle between PC mode and stand-alone mode.

1. Press&Hold Zero button, then Press&Hold On/Off.
2. Release.
3. Arrow buttons toggle between PC mode and Stand-Alone, select which mode you would like.
4. Press Set button to select mode.

Hope this helps!

Does having water effect the BF calcutations on a Tanita 1250053 BF-350?


Yes. These systems work by what could be broken down as, "Bio-electrical Impedance Monitoring".
Meaning, they measure the amount of resistance in your body to determine the "volume %" of non-resistive materials (fat and water). Since bones and muscle are very dense in comparison, the scale can calculate the total weight of a person, then determine their "expected BF%). Fat is about 80-90% water depending on your genetic makeup, and it would only make sense that if you where full of fluids (either by ingesting large amounts or by fluid build up under the skin) that your BF% would read higher. My professional suggestion? Use it only after waking and before any morning drink or food.
(REMEMBER...THESE THINGS WILL NEVER BE EXACT!!!) Hydrostatic weighing in the only way to be 99%+ on your BFC (body fat composition)
GOOD LUCK AND PLEASE RATE THIS POST!!
P.S. one way to test this method is to hold something heavy in your hands and watch it consider that weight Lean Muscle Tissue. Then stick your hands in a sink full of still water (moving water posses a small electrical charge that could give a false reading) and watch your BF% increase.

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!)

CALIBRATING A TANITA KD-200-110 DIGITAL SCALE.


According to Tanita, you must send the scale back to the factory to adjust the calibration. As of September 2011 the cost is $125.00

This is more the scale costs.

Moral of the story. Don't buy Tanita.

Press the Set and Up Arrow buttons at the same time. Release the buttons, the display will flash. Press the Arrow button to cycle through each weight mode until just the mode that you require is displayed. Then press Set. The display screen will flash to confirm your selection and store in memory.
Note: If weight mode is set to pounds or stone-pounds, the height programming mode will be automatically set to feet and inches. Similarly, if kilograms is selected, height will be automatically set to centimeters.
