I had the same problem with my Salter 987 scale. Pull the battery out for about 10 seconds and put it back in. Then push the scale once so it turns on. After the blinking stops, push it once more. The scale will now zero itself. After the scale has zero'd itself it may turn off after a brief moment. It's now ready to use normally. If you're standing on the scale when it's trying to calibrate to zero, it will assume your weight is zero. Don't stand on the scale after replacing the battery untill you first complete the steps listed above.

How do I clear the 'L' error on my bathroom Salter scale. I have changed the battery but I cannot get the error to clear.


new batteries? or one's that have been sitting around.
they may be low.
what they say to do...
1.
Open the battery compartment on the scale underside.
2.
Remove isolating tab from beneath the battery (if fitted) or insert batteries OBSERVING the polarity signs (+ and -) inside the battery compartment.
3.Close the battery compartment.
4. Select kg, st or lb weight mode by the switch on the
underside of the scale.
5.For use on carpet attach enclosed carpet feet.
6.Position scale on a firm flat surface. next......
INITIALISING YOUR SCALE
1. Press the platform centre and remove your foot.
2.'0.0' will be displayed.
3.The scale will switch off and is now ready for use.
This initialisation process MUST be repeated if the scale is moved. ie battery replacement.

Calibrate Salter model 9140 bathroom scales


Remove the battery and count to 10 and then replace it.

i found this
You do not reset the scale. It only saves the last recorded weight of the user. So, if you weighed yesterday, it will put your recorded weight in memory. The next time you select your user number and step on the scale, it will compute the difference from your previous record and save your current weight.

I have a Salter 9007 bathroom scale. It stopped working so I bought replacement lithium batteries and installed them


Do you still have the manual with the troubleshooting section in it? It looks like this is an overload condiiton or an indicator that something is not right. The manual can help you to sort this out.

I have lost my instructions for my Salter glass bathroom scales 9103. I have a EE on the digital mode what does this mean and what can I do to fix it so the correct weight shows


The scales display EE as they are reading a negative weight.

With the scales switched OFF place 2 glass plates on the scales and press ON.

The scales should now display 0g.

If this doesn't work add more weight and try again.

There is also 4 screws on the underside of the scales which hold the weighing bar in place, if you loosen the 2 smaller screws this should relieve some of the stress so less weight is needed to zero the scales.
