have gone t*t's-up.

I went to use them this morning - kept under a hard cover on my loading bench - and when I turned it in - it read 'EE' which equals 'overload'. There was nothing on it to weigh, BTW.

I changed out the batteries, just in case, although that was not the reading for low battery - no difference.

I know that they are pretty old, but as I live in UK, are they worth the expense of sending back to the US to fix, or do I put the thing in the trash?

Double check to make sure they're not saying "overlord".. if they are, make a small offering of powder to try to satisfy their demands. good luck

lol.. perhaps it's too damp where you store them? I don't know. I'd put them outside (if warm and dry), under cover and not in direct sun.

Warm and dry? Hmmmmm. The reloading facility - my 6x8 shed - is dry, that I know, since it also has my loco building stuff in it. But warm? It never gets below freezing here.

Still, I'll leave them in the house overnight and see if that makes any difference, and if not, then it's the garbage can...

Found this advise for an LE-300 scale showing "EE":

IF YOUR SCALE READS "EE" OR "-EE"
Sometimes an electronic scale can be shifted out of its working range, possibly
by a jolt in shipping or transportation. When this occurs, your scale tells you
by displaying" EE" or "-EE". This can be corrected:
2. Press "OFF" and "ZERO" simultaneously. The display wiII show "In",
meaning input. You wiII be able to input the information needed to get
the scale back to its normal function.
3. Press "OFF" and "ZERO" simultaneously a second time; a number wiII
appear that wiII count down and eventually stop.
4. Press "ZERO" and the scale will display zero.
5. Place the calibration weight onto the scale and press "OFF" and "MODE"
simultaneously until "CAb" appears on the display. A number wiII then
appear, but not the actual weight of the calibration weight
6. Remove the calibration weight from the scale and turn off the scale to get
out of the input function. 'The scale now can be turned back on and should
be calibrated normally. At this point, you should be back in business.
If this procedure does not work the first time, we suggest you keep trying. If
you need assistance, please call Lyman Customer Service.
