I've been nursing along my MTM digital scale ever since it started acting like a prick ~2 months after I bought it. It would start to turn on but never display anything. I could take the batteries out, start it up, make sure it still weighed my test weight @50gm and then go on with life. I came to a habit of leaving the batteries out, which tended to allow it to work right away. Today I went down, I had finally decided to give it another chance and left the batteries in last time I finished reloading. Started to load (some odd vibrating sound from inside), no display, removed the batteries, still nothing.. Oh well, I was headed down to load a few hundred rounds, I guess now I have to wait until I can afford a decent beam scale <shrug> Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
