1) If the Display ever becomes locked showing "Out2", please
recalibrate the scale as outlined below
2) If the Display ever becomes locked on LLLL or EEEE, this indicates that the
scale was shocked, dropped or otherwise damaged and the delicate weighing
sensors have been damaged. You can try recalibrating the scale (If the
sensor has not been hurt too badly it will work again after recalibration).
Otherwise you will have to follow the warranty instructions that came with your
Although the AXE is designed to be the most durable pocket scale in the
market, It's important that you never overload or drop/shock the scale. This scale is
still a delicate instrument and must be treated with care and caution. Scales
are delicate instruments and unlike Cellular phones, scales have delicate
sensors that determine how much an item weighs. If you drop or shock your
scale, these sensors "feel" the shock and are sometimes destroyed.
This happens with all digital scales. We design our scales to be as resistant to
shock or drops as possible, however there is no way for us to protect 100%
against load cell or sensor damage. A well-treated scale will provide
years of reliable and accurate weighing. However an abused scale will only work
until it is damaged.
PLEASE READ COMPLETE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USE
Thank you for purchasing The AXE. With normal care and proper treatment it
will provide years of reliable service. Please read all operating instructions
.KEEP THE FOLLOWING POINTS IN MIND:
* If the display becomes locked on Out2 please recalibrate the scale.
* Avoid lengthy exposure to extreme heat or cold, your scale works best when
operated at normal room temperature. Always allow the unit to acclimate to a
normal room temperature for at least one hour before use.
* Allow sufficient warm up time. Turn the scale On and wait several seconds
to give the internal components a chance to stabilize before weighing.
* The cleaner the environment the better. Dust, dirt,
moisture, vibration, air currents and proximity to other electronic equipment
can all cause an adverse effect on the reliability and accuracy of your scale.
* Handle with care. Gently apply all items to be weighed onto
tray top. Although this scale is designed to be quite durable, try to avoid
rough treatment as this may permanently damage the internal sensor and void your
* Avoid shaking, dropping or otherwise shocking the scale. This is a
precision instrument and MUST BE HANDLED WITH EXTREME CARE.
* Only operate the scale on a stable, vibration free surface. IMPORTANT: Do
not operate near cell phones, radios, computers, or any other electronic device.
.** These electronic scale are precision instruments. Do not operate near an
in-use cell phone, cordless phone, radio, computer or other electronic device.
These devices emit RF and can cause unstable scale readings. If your scale ever
performs poorly, try moving the scale to a different room or location. This is a
very precise scale - the display may seem to wander or jump when weighing. This
is due to air currents or vibrations. Stable weighing is achieved when the
display remains fixed for 3 seconds.
1) Three #357 button batteries are required.
2) To install batteries:
a) Release the battery cover by sliding out-wards.
b) Place batteries into battery compartment aligned correctly.
c) Replace battery cover.
DO NOT USE EXCESSIVE FORCE & DO NOT PRESS ON THE TRAY!!!
3) The scale is now ready for battery operation.
(Advanced users only) CALIBRATION______________________
IMPORTANT: This scale was professionally factory calibrated before shipment
and does NOT need to be recalibrated by the end user. However, if you wish to
recalibrate your scale we provide these instructions for calibration:
Repeat calibration if the scale ever shows Out2. Incorrect calibration can occur
if you do not follow the steps exactly. If your scale does not perform
accurately, please try replacing your batteries before you calibrate. You will
need a 100gram weight to calibrate this scale. NOTE: if you do not have
access to a 100g weight you can purchase one at your local store or in emergency
situations you can use 100g of coins or weights (ie 20 US Nickels = 100g) as a
1) Turn the scale OFF and Place the it on a Flat, very stable surface
(Be certain the scale is OFF)
2) Press and hold the
key for 10 seconds until a
number appears on the display - then release the key.
3) Press the
key again, the display
will show 2Ero and then
4) Gently place a 100 gram weight on the scale and wait 3 seconds.
5) Press the
key. The display will show
CAL and then PASS,
calibration is complete. Remove the weight, then Press and hold the
key for 5 seconds to turn the scale off.
NOTE: if after calibration your scale does not read accurately, this
indicates calibration error and the calibration process should be repeated more
Please calibrate on a very stable flat surface
INACCURACY / ERROR___________________________________
The primary reasons for inaccuracy or malfunction are low batteries,
incorrect calibration, overload or operating on an unstable surface. Please keep
this in mind and maintain and operate your scale properly. The scale is a
precise instrument and must be handled with the utmost care and caution.
* Power Up Segment Test
When first turning the unit on, all segments of the display will appear as
shown below. This display will remain for approximately 2 seconds and then reset
When an applied load exceeds the capacity. "EEEE" will appear on the display.
Remove the excessive load immediately!
!Remember: You can permanently damage the scale by overloading it!
* Negative Value
Any tarred value or a value left in memory will be displayed as a negative
number once all weight is removed from the unit. Press tare to re-Zero the unit.
* Auto off
An auto shut off feature is provided to conserve battery power. The unit will
automatically turn off after approximately 3 minutes of inactivity.
There is a stable indicator that appears on the left side of the LCD whenever
the scale is stable and at Zero
KEY PAD FUNCTIONS
* UNIT (the left key)
Unit (mode) selection: Press and hold the left key to change weight unit You
can select g (grams), oz (ounces), dwt (pennyweight) or ct (carats).
Press this key to turn unit on. Once the unit is on, press and hold the same
key for 5 seconds to turn the scale off
The spinning locking mechanism of the AXE is designed to protect the scale
from accidental overload when it is closed.
Simply spin the cover counter clockwise so that the LCD and buttons will be
hidden from view. The scale is now ready for storage
To operate the sale simply spin the cover clockwise until it is fully open
(you'll feel it lock into place). Now the scale is ready for use.
NOTE: Always close the cover when storing the scale. Please be sure the cover
is fully open before operation.
NOTE: When all weight are removed from the weighing tray, the tared value of
a container will be displayed as a negative number. Cycle the power on the scale
to reset the scale to zero.

environmental conditions such as currents, vibrations, strong electrical and
magnetic fields as well as a rapid change of the ambient temperature
