Weight scales, which are also called weighing tools or digital scales, can show error codes that tell you about different issues. These codes help users find and fix problems with how the scale works and how accurate it is. Different error codes may mean different things based on the brand and model of the scale. Here are some common error codes and what they might mean:
Weighing machines can sometimes display error codes. These error codes can be caused by a variety of factors, such as:
- Low battery: If the battery in your weighing machine is low, it may display an error code.
- Improper calibration: If your weighing machine is not properly calibrated, it may display an error code.
- Damaged weighing platform: If the weighing platform on your weighing machine is damaged, it may display an error code.
- Environmental factors: If the weighing machine is exposed to extreme temperatures or humidity, it may display an error code.
The error codes that are displayed on weighing machines can vary depending on the manufacturer and model of the weighing machine. However, some common error codes that may be displayed include:
- Err 1: This error code indicates that the weighing machine is not calibrated.
- Err 2: This error code indicates that the weighing platform is damaged.
- Err 3: This error code indicates that the battery is low.
- Err 4: This error code indicates that the weighing machine is not level.
- Err 5: This error code indicates that the weighing machine is overloaded.
Error Code “ERR”: This error code usually means that the scale can’t give a stable reading for a number of different reasons. It could be caused by an uneven or unstable floor, too much weight on the scale, or a problem with the parts inside.
Error Code “E1” or “E2”: These error codes usually mean that the load cell or sensor on the scale is broken. The load cell is what measures the weight, and if it gets broken or messed up, these error codes can show up.
Error Code “LO” or “ERRL”: An error code of “LO” or “ERRL” usually means that the weight recorded is less than the minimum capacity of the scale. This error can happen if the user puts something on the scale that is too light for the scale to measure correctly.
Error Code “HI” or “ERRH”: An error code of “HI” or “ERRH” means that the weight recorded is more than what the scale can hold. It happens when the person puts something on the scale that is too heavy for it to measure correctly.
Error Code “CAL” or “CAL ERR”: An error code of “CAL” or “CAL ERR” could mean that the scale needs to be calibrated. Calibration makes sure that the scale gives exact readings. This error could happen if the calibration process wasn’t done right or if there is a problem with the calibration feature.
Error Code “UnSta” or “UnStable”: The “UnSta” or “UnStable” error code shows up when the scale is not stable, which is often caused by movement or noises during the weighing process.
Error Code “Low Batt” or “Battery Low”: An error code of “Low Batt” or “Battery Low” means that the scale’s battery is low and needs to be replaced.
Error Code “Err 0” or “Error 0”: The “Err 0” or “Error 0” code could mean that the scale has a general problem while it is working.
Error Code “Err 1” or “Error 1”: The “Err 1” or “Error 1” code could mean that there is a problem with the hardware or software inside the scale.
Error Code “Overload” or “OL”: The “Overload” or “OL” error code shows up when the scale is loaded with more weight than it can hold.
If you see an error code on your weighing machine, you should consult the user manual for your weighing machine to determine the meaning of the error code and how to resolve the issue.
Here are some additional tips for troubleshooting weighing machine error codes:
- Check the battery: Make sure that the battery in your weighing machine is properly inserted and that the battery is not low.
- Calibrate the weighing machine: If the weighing machine is not calibrated, you can calibrate it by following the instructions in the user manual.
- Inspect the weighing platform: If the weighing platform is damaged, you may need to replace the weighing platform.
- Move the weighing machine to a different location: If the weighing machine is exposed to extreme temperatures or humidity, you may need to move the weighing machine to a different location.
If you have tried these troubleshooting tips and you are still seeing an error code, you should contact the manufacturer of your weighing machine for assistance.
