How can I find out who made my digital price computing scale?

by on April 21, 2013

Q: I bought a Digital Price Computing Scale online last yr just about this time. Just a little over a yr later, the machine loses its ability to compute while still maintaining the capacity to weigh. Another farmer told me they had one that expired a yr after purchase. There isn’t a manufacturer’s stamp, plate or any other company info. Don’t have a phone cam to send a pic, but I wonder if anyone else has had this same non-coincidental type of occurence? My l’il ol’ pea-brain just can’t help but think a nefarious Chinese geek or geekette could program in a kill switch in the software. And I wonder if anyone might be skillful and curious enough to determine whether or not that was done. I know some beta-geeks who could easily isolate the board without butchering it. Lastly, and most importantly, I wonder if y’all will forgive me for running over my quota of one question. I’d be much obliged if ya would.

    I’d really doubt there was any kind of “kill switch”, usually it’s just poor quality control or some kind of mistaken defect. Like the saying goes, “you get what you pay for”.

    The best suggestion I can offer you is to contact the company that sold it to you and tell them about the problem.

    If they aren’t able to resolve the problem to your satisfaction, consider paying a little extra for a name brand scale with a long warranty that a company is willing to put their name on.

    Also, feel free to send in whatever questions you’d like!
