Anybody else have issue? Scale won't weigh correct. This weight is 50 g.

New batteries. Varies from .020 to .035

Worked fine until today.

Not sure...it has instructions somewhere, just have to read it. Might go back to Lee scale if this is not reliable. Not a fan of electronic stuff anyway.

With the units in the G setting push and hold the units button until CAL displays. Release the unit button. push the unit button once more. You should then get a blinking 50.000 display. Place the weight on the scale and it will do the rest, giving you a pass indicator and then goes to weight readout.

Sounds more complicated than it is. You should check the accuracy with the check weight every session, and recalibrate as necessary. It takes very little time to recalibrate this unit.
