    Last time it happened, I cleaned the battery contacts as suggested and it worked for about a month, but then stopped again.

    Ok I am seeing a trend for this scale just randomly stop working for no reason.  Mine has also just quit.  I don’t see any solutions or suggestions on how to fix the issue, if it’s even fixable.  Anyone else figure it out.

    Definitely a pattern emerging - mine went MIA today. Planned obsolescence?

    Mine quit taking measurements today.  Unit is 3 years old.  The display shows a right side down arrow indicating I need to place weight on right bottom corner. Sensor failure?

    i just figured mine out.  there was one of the battery contacts that was corroded.   I scraped it clean to the metal and it started working again.  I am guessing it was getting enough power to lightly flicker the screen but not enough for anything else.

    My unit went out too!  Same as the comments above.  I've tried everything except taking it apart.  I don't see any comments from Withings here.  Has anyone figured out why they suddenly stopped working?

    Mine stopped working two months ago. I have replaced batteries, trying different types, cleaned the connection and still will not turn on.
