The slide switch contacts are probably dirty or oxidized. The easiest way to clean the switch contacts is to just flip the switch back and forth several times. Best not to spray anything into the switch as it will likely attract dust and cause further problems in the long term.

### How do I change it from KG to pounds?

That basic conversion is 1 KG = 2.2 LB. so if you have 5 KG, the you have 11 LB.
There are a number of online calculators that will do more exact conversions for you.

### On my "Ideaworks" wireless electronic display

After playing with the remote on this scale for about 30 minutes, I finally found out how to change this display from kg to pounds or stones. Since this scale doesn't come with an instruction manual, I know a lot of people are totally lost. OK, first click the user button once, so that the weight and goal weight show. Then hold down the clock/set button. After a few seconds the kg on the screen will start blinking. Then use your arrow buttons to switch to stones, then to pounds. The lb will show at the top of the display above where the kg was. You can also set your goal weight by pressing the set button and scanning through after setting the lbs setting. Hope this helps!

### Somehow my tanita ultimate scale has been switched from pounds to stones. How can I get it back to pounds?

Q: Why does "st-lb" or "kg" appear when taking a measurement?
A: The unit's "Weight Mode" has been set to measure your weight in units of stone-pounds (st-lb) or kilograms (kg). Tanita's Body Fat Monitors and the UltimateScales can measure weight in three different modes: lb (pounds), kg (kilograms) or st-lb (British stone-pounds). To change the setting, first find out which model you have (it should be written just above or below the display screen of the unit).
Method 1
Body Fat Monitor/Scales: TBF-611, TBF-612, TBF-621, TBF-622, BF-541, TBF-560, TBF-572. UltimateScales: 2000, 2001, 2001T. BF-662, BF-555, BF-556, BF-558, BF-559, BF-625, BF-626.
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.
Method 2
Body Fat Monitor/Scales: BF-542, TBF-551, TBF-521, TBF-531, BF-681, BF-682, BF-679, BF-680, BF-578, all Ironman products, and all InnerScan products.
Select the preferred weight mode by using switch on the back of the measuring platform.
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.
