Question about Tanita BD-590 Digital Baby Scale, 40 lb x 0.5 oz
With 6 Lbs. of certified mass standards applied to platform, scale reads 5Lb. / 15 oz. With 20 Lbs. applied scale reads 19Lbs / 14.5 oz, etc.
Since the scale error is linear up to 40 pounds, it is clear the problem is calibration. Manufacturer refuses to provide the calibration sequence or procedures. My customer has 6 BD-590s and 2 of them have this condition. Since I have repaired & calibrated scales for over 30 years, I’ve always been able to calibrate my customer’s scales without having to return it to the factory.
Any information you can provide on the calibration of this model would be greatly appreciated.
