Error Messages


This scale has a low battery indicator. It will display ”LO” and the scale says “Low Battery” or readings will grow dim, or the voice quality distorts or becomes too soft to hear, the batteries need replacement.


“O-Ld” indicates an overload warning. The maximum capacity of this scale is 440 lbs / 200 kgs. Should “O-Ld” appear on the display during a weighing, this indicates that the maximum weighing capacity of the scale has been exceeded. Remove the weight immediately; otherwise, permanent damage may occur.


If the scale displays “Err”, this indicates the weight is not stable and the scale cannot lock in the weight. Step off and back onto the scale, standing still while your weight computes.


  • Clean exposed parts with a soft, slightly damp cloth. To remove stains, use a mild soap. Never use detergents, excess water, treated cloths, harsh cleaning agents, or sprays. Do not attempt to lubricate or open scale casing as this will void your warranty.
  • Although your scale is designed to be maintenance-free, it contains sensitive electronic parts. Avoid rough treatment. Do not drop, kick, or jump on it. Treat it with care to ensure the best performance.
  • Do not store scale where you store cleaning chemicals. The vapors from some household products may affect the electronic components of your scale. Do not store scale on its side.
  • This scale is an extremely sensitive weighing device. To prevent the run down of the batteries, do not store anything on the scale.
