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.?

It looks like a horn it is actually a picture of the thin plastic cover that goes over the end before you put it inside the ear. Put the cover on and it will work.

Changing the temperature scale from F to C: - - Turn on the thermometer - If the unit is already on, make sure it is not in the memory mode - Press the ?/MEM button and keep it pressed. Then press and release the activation button to switch over to the "change temperature scale" mode. - By pressing the activation button again, the opposite scale will be activated. Each further pressing of the activation button rotates the measuring scale

If the back cover won't come off, try spraying a little (!) WD-40 on a Q-tip, then rubbing the oil around the edge of the cover. If you don't have WD-40, try olive oil.

Simply press the small recessed button (a small triangle is pointing it ) directly above the battery door with something slender like a ballpoint pen or a toothpick, while pushing the battery door down, away from the thermometer.

Ambient temperature is not within the allowed operating range (10 - 40 °C or 50 - 104 °F).
Allow the thermometer to remain for 30 minutes in a room where the temperature is
between 10 and 40 °C or 50 and 104 °F.

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.

Replacing the batteries The thermometer is supplied with two 1.5 V type AA (LR 06). For best performance, we recommend Duracell ® alkaline batteries. Insert new batteries when the battery symbol appears on the display. Open the battery compartment. Remove the batteries and replace with new batteries, making sure the poles are in the right direction. Slide battery door back until it snaps in place. To protect the environment, dispose of empty batteries at appropriate collection sites according to national or local regulations.
