Re: lyman 1500 XP problems
From Lyman's website...
Below are some helpful troubleshooting hints for getting the most out of your 1000XP or 1500XP Electronic Scale:
Be sure to use the adapter supplied with the scale.
1000XP 110V Adapter; R3W012-200
1000XP 230V Adapter; R3W012-200G
1500XP 110V Adapter; A20930N or R3W009-200
1500XP 230V Adapter; A20930G
Occasionally wipe the unit’s exterior and over the scale platform with a used non static dryer sheet such as Bounce or ClingFree to inhibit static electricity.
Fluorescent lights, portable and cellular phones and other electronic scales and appliances can cause erratic readings. This includes proximity to furnaces and air conditioners.
Keep out of drafts.
Always allow the unit to stabilize for 24 hours if it has been in storage or out of service for a while.
I'll take a balance beam any day, no worries about "erratic reading" from things that surround us. No need to allow 24 hours for them to stabilize. I bought one years ago and soon switched back to the "old school" method of weighing powder. To me it's crazy to use a device to weigh gun powder when the manufacture tells you it can give erratic readings. I want to know the powder weight is not erratic.
