    I'm having the same Err2 issue with my Taylor scale. I have talked to others with the problem, but no one has yet told me of a solution.

Try this, I have the same problem and I just got off the phone with Taylor, this is what they told me to do and my scale is now working again.
1. take the battery out.
2. put the scale on a flat, hard surface
3. stand on the scale for 10 seconds
4. put the battery back in, be careful not to touch any buttons or turn the scale on
5. put the scale back on the flat, hard surface
6. put one foot on the scale and apply pressure until the display comes on
7. take your foot off of the scale
8. wait for the the display to go blank
9. now stand on the scale to weigh yourself.

This worked for me. Hope that it works for all of you.

After trying several other things, what finally resolved this issue for me was removing the battery and leaving it out for 24 hours. I then put the same battery back in and it is working fine again. Hope this works for you as well.

I don't have a Taylor, but that E often appears on mine when I first step on it...the instructions indicated the scale is calibrating...step off and tap the scale twice and wait for 00 to appear..worked for me every time..hope that well..Jack

What does Err3 mean on taylor body fat scale?

Remove your shoes and socks and wet your feet slightly with a damp cloth if you receive the "ERR3" error. ERR3 is a contact error and your feet should ideally be bare and wet to achieve an accurate body-fat reading.
  • Step off the scale and wait for it reset. Remove your shoes and socks and wet your feet slightly if you receive either the "ERR4" or "ERR5" errors, which means your body-fat or body measurements are out of range.
  • Reset the scale if it doesn't work or you continue to receive error messages. Remove the battery and set the scale on a flat surface. Stand still on the scale for five seconds and step off. Re-install the battery and place the scale back on the flat surface. Place one foot on the scale until it displays zeros or dashes. Remove your foot and wait for the scale to turn off. Step back on the scale to weigh yourself

    I have a Taylor body fat analyzer and scale model #5563 that keeps showing Err 2. It won't read any weight whatsoever... it just goes stratight to the Error message. Do you know what that means and how I...

    From the Taylor Site

    Here are the basic ERR messages and their meanings:
    • Error 0: Initialization
    • Error 1: Instability (scale is on an uneven surface ex: carpet)
    • Error 2: Unit may have been jarred or unit was overloaded (customer went over the maximum weight capacity)
    • Error 3: Contact error (Feet were not wet for Body fat reading, feet aren’t big enough to reach sensors)
    • Error 4: Body fat is out of range
    • Error 5: Water is out of range
    I got an ERR2 message and now the scale doesn’t work. What should I do? The following reset procedure is used when the scale shows an err2, err, 0.0, inaccurate weight, or some other unusual error.
    1. Remove the battery from the scale.
    2. Sit the scale on a hard surface floor.
    3. Step up onto the scale, stand still for about 5 seconds and step off the scale.
    4. Re-install your battery.
    5. Place the scale back on a hard surface floor.
    6. With one foot only, place just enough weight on the scale for the display shows zero’s or dashes. Once you see zeros or dashes remove your foot.
    7. Wait for the scale to turn off again.
    8. Step up onto the scale for a weight.
    If the reset is successful, you should receive a weight right away. If you continue to receive one of the error messages above please call our Customer Service department or contact us via email. You can also try the reset procedure a 2nd time. Sometimes the reset procedure will work the second time.

    Err 1 message on Taylor Lithium Elec Scale model 7346

    This is a reply I received from Taylor customer support. I have followed this procedure enough times to wear out the original battery and still get the Err 1 message. You may have better luck.

    Thank you for your e-mail. The reboot below may clear the error from
    your scale. You may need to do this several times to completely reboot
    the system. Please let us know if you have any questions or continue to
    display the Error.

    1. Remove the battery from the scale
    2. Set the scale on the floor without the battery in place.
    3. Stand on the scale for 10 seconds (still without the battery)
    4. Carefully replace the battery without turning the scale on.
    5. Using only one foot, tap the scale or apply just enough pressure to
    turn on the display. (It should show dashes or zero's) IMMEDIATELY
    6. Let the scale turn off
    7. Step on the scale for a weight reading

    I have lost my instructions for my Salter glass bathroom scales 9103. I have a EE on the digital mode what does this mean and what can I do to fix it so the correct weight shows

    The scales display EE as they are reading a negative weight.

    With the scales switched OFF place 2 glass plates on the scales and press ON.

    The scales should now display 0g.

    If this doesn't work add more weight and try again.

    There is also 4 screws on the underside of the scales which hold the weighing bar in place, if you loosen the 2 smaller screws this should relieve some of the stress so less weight is needed to zero the scales.
