Question about Braun IRT3020 Thermoscan Ear Thermometer
I have braun thermoscan IRT4520 for about 4 years. so far so good. unfortunatelly recently i tried to turn it on, it did not take any temperature, just beeps as if i did not insert it in ear. next i took my temperature showing some temperature, next time higher, higher, higher, in the end 42.2 degrees C, after that just HI, no temp readings. somewhere in between it showed POS error. i know how to use it, so i'm putting it in ear right way, my temp deffinitelly is not 42.2degrees. tried to change batteries, no change, same story. any suggestions (other than im not putting it in ear propper way (i know i am), or my temp is too high (in fact i have no fever at all))? or is it just end of life for my braun? im guessing - could it be possible that probe itself is overheating (42.2 degrees and more)? and that's where its problem is. thermometer has not being dropped, overheated or being in big cold. it's always in my drawer in room temperature.
I have a Braun ThermoScan irt 4520 model for nearly 2 years now and most recently I tried to use on my son with new batteries and still won't turn on. I stored it in side drawer in our room without batteries to have a longer lifespan, but still won't turn on when I click on the I/O button. I've contacted Braun service for help but offices were closed due to a snowstorm. Any help or tricks would be appreciated. Thanks!

Is the drawer that its stored in, in the bathroom? the humidity or moisture could affect it. I have had mine for 8 yrs and works perfectly. Are you placing the probe covers on correctly and waiting for it to click or a pop before inserting into ur ear.?

SOURCE: Can you change the temp
Turn off the thermometer
Press and Hold the L/O Button
Continue to hold the start button when the F or C display appears. Watch for these displays to cycle over the display window.
Release the start button when the F display appears on the screen.
Listen for a beep and watch for the Braun ThermoScan ear thermometer to shut itself off, indicating that you changed the temperature scale to Fahrenheit successfully.
Follow the same procedure but release the start button when C shows on the display to switch from Fahrenheit to Celsius.
