Turn your HoMedics SC-300 scale over. Slide the "KG/LB" switch to kilograms or pounds as desired. Turn the scale back over and place it on a level floor.
Prepare the scale to take readings: Step on the scale completely, step off, and wait 30 seconds.
Remove your clothing. Clothing adds weight, making any reading slightly inaccurate.
Step on the scale to take the measurement. The weight will appear on the display as a number.
- If "Err" or "0.C" appears on the SC-300 display, reweigh yourself. The scale was unable to provide a reading.
- If "LO" appears on the display, replace the battery. Turn the scale over, remove the battery compartment cover and pop out the old battery, using a screwdriver to pry it free if necessary. Insert a new 3-volt CR 2032 lithium battery, positive side up, in the empty spot, and then push the cover back into place.
- To clean your scale, simply wipe it with a slightly damp cloth. If it has a stain, wipe it with a slightly soapy cloth, and then with a damp cloth to rinse away the soap residues.
