Won't let me weight myself accurately now. I have tried taking out batteries, can't find a reset button on scale. I love my scale and can't figure out what is wrong with it.

SOURCE: scale appears to be inaccurate

this type of less resoluted scale hasn't repeatability. if you wish to repair it, change the loadcell. use 2 x scale capacity of load cell.

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.

SOURCE: 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
REMOVE YOUR FOOT.
6. Let the scale turn off
7. Step on the scale for a weight reading

SOURCE: I have a Taylor body fat analyzer and scale model

From the Taylor Site http://www.taylorusa.com/faq-scales

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.

Digital scales weigh half of accurate weight


Recalibrate. If that does not take, then there is an issue with the scale. Try installing a new battery since a bad or weak one often results in erroneous readings.

Abdorer twister - body analyzing scale


I updated this review 3 weeks after getting the original one -- I contacted the company to see if I was doing anything wrong to get the body measurements. After telling them what I had done -- they determined that perhaps the scale was defective. They sent me a brand new scale and I did not have to send back the original defective one. The weight is consistent and doesn't vary when you move it to different spots. I love this scale and it looks very sleek too. After I figured it out, set up was simple and it literally took me 5 minutes to set it up

Scale keeps showing lo no weight


Try taking the battery out and putting it back in, also there should be a small reset button. You will need a toothpick to push the reset button. Allow time for the scale to reset before stepping on it.

Not sure if you knew this but you can change the batteries. I had the same problem and had forgotten to change the batteries. However, the weights may still fluctuate because you need to reprogram the settings. Unfortunately, i do not remember ever having an instruction manual...

Scales are getting a Err 1 message, installed new batteries, need to reset them some how. They will not zero themselves out


My scale was fine the other day. I weighed myself earlier in the day. I tried to weigh myself later in the day and the scale started reading ERR1. I called Taylor and they had me try to "reset" the scale twice. It did not work.

The steps for resetting it are:

Turn the scale over
Remove the batteries for at least 10 seconds
With the scale on it's side (even though you aren't supposed to put the scale on it's side, carefully insert the batteries and put the back on the scale
Slowly return the scale to a flat hard surface
Step on the scale after about 10 seconds of it being back in position
If the scale still jumps with crazy numbers and reads ERR1 try to reset the scale again being very careful when the scale is on it's side
If this does not correct the problem then the scale will need to be returned to the manufacturer, to the address on the label on the bottom of the scale
I was told you could put the scale in any box and ship it to them the cheapest way possible but be sure to keep the batteries with you
If you are still under the year warranty they will send you out a new scale in 4-6 weeks

I was not happy that my scale was purchased on 11/14/09 and it died on 02/12/10. Luckily I knew where my receipt was. I pulled it out and noticed 02/12/10 was the last date to make returns to Target for that transaction. I was able to go and return my scale to the store because it was in the 90-day window that I had purchased it.

I was told that the reason the scale was doing this was either an delayed electrical interference that may have occurred during. The only other reason I was given was an OVERLOAD. Well, I seriously doubt an overload was my issue. First of all I was the only person at home that day so nobody else stood on the scale. I had used it earlier in the day and it was accurate. I am 5'6" and 139 lbs. so I seriously doubt it was OVERLOAD unless someone isn't telling me something and I need to lose some serious weight.

Anyway, I hope this helps. I wasted a lot of time trying to figure it out that day. Now I have my new receipt and if this happens again I will go get my new scale just as I did this time. I thought a 4-6 week wait for a replacement scale was insane. Kudos to Target for taking the scale back without a box or instructions on the last day I was able to make a return.

Need to reset scale weight


You have probably set your scale to kilogram and not pounds. There should be a button to set this underneath the scale or even a reset button to reset the scale to its original settings.

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.

Conair WW41 Scale


To totally reset the scale and remove any old data in the users take battery out for 2 hours.

To use the USER functions:
Tap scale to turn it on
When you see "0.0" press
Press SET button. "P-1" will appear and blink
Use UP/DOWN button to select a user number
once desired user number (1-4) appears press SET button to confirm

when 0.0 appears step on scale this will enter your starting weight
press SET to confirm
scale automatically sets a goal weight of 10% below starting. you can raise or lower it by using arrow buttons-Press SET to confirm

Tracking weight
tap, see 0, select user number. Scale displays start weight, then goal weight then 0.0 and you weigh yourself. In the smaller windows it will display last weight and the difference between current and last weight then diff between current and start then diff between current and goal
