Re: Newline talking bathroom scale help needed

Troy Burnham

I just got off the phone with amazon a few minutes ago and they're sending me an address label for me to send the scale back that I believe is defective.

They are sending me a replacement as well and the surprising thing is that I'll likely receive the new one before I send the defective one back because they're sending me the address label through snail mail due to me not having a working printer at this time.

Hopefully the second scale works as expected.

An interesting line of discussion, as I purchased my scale three or four years ago, and initially it operated as expected.

However now, when it tells me to step on the scale, I do, and it continuously reports "standstill". On one occasion after about 15 seconds of this, it gave me a reading. Subsequently, no reading and just the instruction.

I replaced the battery's, and nothing has improved. Very disappointing, indeed.

If you hit upon a solution, please share it.

I'm beginning to think that there's something wrong with the scale I
received yesterday, no matter what I do I can't get it to work right.
I'll call amazon and see if they'll send me a replacement scale.

I have this scale, and I just stand on it, it tells me my weight.  Then it says "ready for operation".  I guess that is in case someone else wants to use it.  If no one gets on, it beeps and is finished.
You need to try it for yourself.  I am totally blind.

Hi all,

Last week Gerald Levy and one other person recommended a talking
bathroom scale, it looks like the brand name is Newline from what it
shows on amazon. I bought it and got it yesterday but after inserting
the batteries so far all my mom and I can get it to do is to say please
wait when we tap it, then there's a beep a few seconds later and then
the scale shuts off.

My mom has been the one doing this so far so I'm not sure at what point
she steps on the scale but what might we be doing wrong? Is there a
certain procedure to follow to make the scale work?

Btw my mom says that after it says please wait there's some letters that
come up on the display that she says looks like out 2, but she says that
she's not sure because apparently the entire letters aren't shown.

Thanks in advance for any help.
