My scales display Lo. What does this mean?

Question by Guest | 01/09/2012 at 15:36

I have a problem with my scales. Normally, I go on it and I wait for the scales to settle. This takes a little bit, and then my weight is displayed.

But now it's different. The weight starts to settle down, the value changes 2 or 3 times, and then it says only "Lo" or whatever this means. Can someone help me?

Lo means Low Battery. In other words, your scales will soon be out of power and the batteries are almost empty. 

Simply change the batteries and everything should work again.

But make sure you insert the batteries the right way round. One negative and one positive. Otherwise it still won't work, as I have just discovered!

This is not correct. I have changed the batteries and the Lo status remains. I just saw a youtube video claiming it is the battery, and there are dozens of comments saying the same as me...the scale is broken, replacing the batteries have no effect.

One the one hand, it may depend on the manufacturer and the product what Lo means.

On the other hand, when your scale is broken, also the status message may be incorrect. When the contacts are broken, maybe the scale things that there is not enough energy, although the batteries are full.
