Unfortunately, it will not work without power. Therefore, the first thing to do is to install batteries. After that, you can proceed to the direct configuration of the measuring device. How to set up electronic floor scales will be described in detail in this article.

Setup process

In order for the device to show you the actual numbers, place it on a flat and solid surface. Setting up an electronic scale starts with a stable position.

It is important to remember that the location of the device when it is first turned on is crucial for the correct future work.

  5. You should not apply physical strength to the scales, jump on them.

Provide decent storage conditions for your device, and then it will serve you for many years.

Scales have worked perfectly since 2007 and just now they started to show the wrong weight. Who knows how to open the legs and clean the contacts? I suspect that water has been there and there is dust. Thank you in advance.
