What does this error code on my scale mean?
|ABCDEF||perform display reset procedure||Quick & Super Count upset by ESD hit or other memory failure|
|BUSY||none; an operation is in progress||
an operation was started that takes time to complete; however:
--a lengthy 'BUSY' following a ZERO keypress may be indicative of a problem with the scale or load cell
--a lengthy 'BUSY' following a CAL keypress
|CAL A||continue calibration procedure as instructed for specific scale model||Scale is ready to perform a linearity calibration at ambient temp. after CAL A scale remains in debug mode for maximum readability|
|CAL FS||continue calibration procedure as instructed for specific scale model||Scale ready for full-scale calibration, including specifying capacity|
|CALC E||reset memory to factory defaults||'calculation error' may indicate error reading memory or bad part|
|CAL T||continue calibration as specified for specific scale model||Scale ready for temp-compensation; zero-drift will be minimized by performing temperature calibration after completing ambient cal|
|CON ERR||re-run d-nOS or replace controller||wrong keys pressed during d-nOS or controller PCB is defective|
|CRASH||press CLEAR to abandon erasing, or repeat '-232.8' key-in to continue||different models will display different criteria for abandoning or continuing the complete resetting of memory and loss of all calibrations|
|DEC ERR||re-run d-nOS or replace keyboard||wrong keys pressed during d-nOS or keyboard is actually defective|
|DEBUG||press CLEAR to see weight display||displays weight at maximum readability, runs with zero-tracking & overload/overlift indicators off; weight + temp. appear on printouts|
|d-nOS||press CAL key to continue self-test||for every 'do <nnn>', press the 'nnn' key; at end, press CAL key|
|HELLO||none; normal power-on message||scale should continue by going into 'count-down' (5-4-3-2-1)|
|HOTCAL||none; temperature cal is running||3-4 hour run-time; increase temp by 10-deg after 1st 30 minutes|
|LLLLLL||reinstall pan onto the scale||either indicates no pan, too little weight, or damage to the load-cell|
|NOBUG||press CLEAR to see weight display||displays weight at normal readability; both zero-tracking & overload/underload ('overlift') indications re-enabled; print weight only|
|NO CAL||Move Cal/Prot switch to CALibrate position and press the CLEAR key||a calibration procedure has been entered, but the Cal/Protect switch is in the wrong position to allow the calibration to proceed|
|OFLO||Remove some weight from pan||Weight or count exceeds display range (e.g. >6 digits)|
|OSC ERR||return scale to factory for service||weight oscillator is not running or running at wrong speed|
|PROTEC||Move Cal/Prot switch to PROTect position and press the CLEAR key||a procedure has been entered (e.g. power-on) in which the scale is expected to operate normally, but Cal/Protect switch in wrong position|
|REPLUG||Calibration has been lost from scale||scale is ready for full-scale calibration, including specifying capacity|
|UNABLE||press CLEAR key (or others...)||
An operation was requested that the scale could not perform
--If attempting to zero reading, check for pan rubbing against base
--If attempting to calibrate for span, verify correct amount of weight
--If attempting to calibrate remote scale connected to RSO option, verify the ' local' base is selected before keying code to cal remote
|- - - - & UL (or blinking)||reinstall Super II pan reinstall SC, QC, EZ, CP, C pan||either indicates no pan, too little weight, or damage to load cell (early models blinked display off/on/off...; Super II displays ‘- - - -‘)|
|5-4-3-2-1||none; automatic testing is running||scale should continue into weighing mode (displaying “0.00”, etc.)|
|888888||none; normal startup message||normal power-on indication on both LCD & LED displays; some LCD displays have additional annunciators which also turn on briefly|
Positive hysteresis (net positive reading) typically indicates a damaged sensor in the load-cell.
Negative hysteresis (net negative reading) suggests loose mounting screws or other mechanical structure failure.
Non-repeatability & non-linearity indicate a damaged load-cell mechanical structure (i.e. flexures, armature, drive link).
Jumpy readings as maximum capacity is approached may indicate dirt in the sensor gap (on model 407 HI/SI/EZ units) or mis-adjustment of the positive-stop setting to too low a value on all non-407 model units.
Jumpy readings throughout the weighing range may indicate a dirty sensor gap or mechanical interference in the load cell (if not related to environmental vibration or air drafts in the vicinity of the scale).
