If when you first turn on your scale it stays at 50.00 and will never go to 0.00 it is one of the following issues:

1. There is motion on the scale.  Make sure the scale platform has nothing on it and try turning it back on.

2. Scale has become saturated with water.  While the scale platform is water resistant the scale indicator is not.  If the scale is put away wet, especially inside out waterproof case, the case could act as a steam chamber and saturate the scale circuitry.  Generally this is NOT permanent damage.  Let the scale sit out, sitting int eh hot sun all day is good for it, and dry it out.  The scale should then go back to normal weighing operation. If not,

3.  The scale load cell/s are damaged or cable from indicator to platform is damaged.  Unit will need to be sent in to Pro Tournament Scales for repair.
