Electro-Mechanical (Dual or Duet) Scales
Can you still use the scale if the LCD display isn't working?
No. If the LCD is not working, check the battery. Replace with a new battery if necessary. If this does not work, check warranty information.
How do you obtain a "Dial" reading only?
On Electro-Mechanical scales, you cannot obtain a reading on the dial only.
How is the scale activated?
Do the following:
- Step on the scale
- LCD will flash "000" for three seconds before displaying weight
- Weight will flash on both dial and LCD displays, and will remain on screen for five seconds before turning off.
What does "Err" / "E" message mean?
If "Err" is displayed, the scale has exceeded the 400-lb. maximum weight load.
What does "L" message mean?
If "L" message appears on the digital display, the 9-volt battery needs to be replaced.
What is "AUTO-OFF"?
This means the scale will turn off automatically when not in use.
What is "INSTANT-ON"?
The scale will automatically turn on when you step on the platform.
What type of battery should I use for this scale?
You should use a 9-volt alkaline battery.
Will moving the scale affect scale accuracy?
Yes. However, the scale is self-calibrating and will return to an accurate reading after three consecutive readings.
