4 year old braun thermoscan IRT4520 having some problems

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.?

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.

How to use Braun ThermoScan 1. Always make sure a new, clean lens filter is in place to help ensure an accurate reading. The thermometer will not function without a lens filter attached (see Changing the lens filter). 2. Press the /mem button. The LCD (liquid crystal display) is activated, showing all segments. When the ready symbol is displayed the thermometer is ready for use. 6 To help ensure an accurate temperature reading, use the following technique: If you are right handed, hold the thermometer in the right hand and take the temperature in the right ear. If you are left handed, hold it in the left hand and use the left ear. 3. Perform an ear tug to straighten the ear canal. This gives the thermometer a clear view of the eardrum. Children under 1 year: Pull the ear straight back. Children aged 1 year to adult: Pull the ear up and back. An ear tug is best performed by using your free hand to grasp the outer edge of the top half of the ear. To take your own temperature, wrap your free hand around the back of your head and grab your ear from behind. 4. While tugging the ear, fit the probe snugly into the ear canal as far as possible and press the activation button. Release it when you hear a beep. This is the Temp Beep that confirms the end of measurement. 5. Remove the thermometer from the ear canal. The LCD displays the temperature measured. 6. Replace the lens filter after each measurement: press the ejector button and put on a new, clean lens filter. 7. A new measurement can be taken as long as the ready symbol is shown. If no button is pressed within 2 minutes, the thermometer will turn off automatically. 7 Note: In the following situations, it is recommended that you take three temperatures in the same ear. If they differ, use the highest reading. · Infants in the first 90 days of life. · Children under three years of age who have a condition such as a compromised immune system and for whom the presence or absence of fever is critical. · When you are first learning to use the ear thermometer until you are comfortable with the technique and are obtaining consistent readings. Important: As with any type of thermometer, slight temperature variations ( ± 0.3 - 0.5 °F / ± 0.2 - 0.3 °C) can occur, if consecutive measurements are taken. Temperature taking hints · The right ear reading may differ from the reading taken at the left ear. Therefore, always take the temperature in the same ear. · The ear must be free from obstructions or excess earwax buildup to take an accurate reading. · External factors may influence ear temperatures, including when an individual has: - been lying on one ear or the other - had their ears covered - been exposed to very hot or very cold temperatures, or - been recently swimming or bathing. In these cases, remove the individual from the situation and wait 20 minutes prior to taking a temperature.

If it is intermittent, that sounds like there is a bad connection inside. Braun has a 2 year warranty. If it is only one year old, call Braun at 800-272-8611
