- Same problem, just hit mine with big hammer won't need new battery now.
- Having the same issue, Scales have stopped working, after purchashing only a few months ago. It shd not be the Battery, but I cant get the old Battery out in any case. Scales are an item you need, when you need them, but Manual gives no directions, and Salter have no tel.support line. Pretty unsatisfactory.
The Arc Electronic Scale is the latest in the Salter range of lightweight, compact, super-accurate scales, ideal for the home cook who wants to keep everything neatly tucked away. Ultra-slim and surprisingly light, it would fit easily into a kitchen drawer. It's also ultra sleek and ships with battery included.
