New Acaia tare button broken?!

Beginner and pro baristas share tips and tricks.

I just opened up my Pearl out of the box and tried to go into update mode, which requires you to do a "log T" hold on the tare button. It doesn't respond. I tried plugging it in, taking off the protective film, restarting it, washed fingers, different fingers. Nothing works.

Any tips? Just return it?

Well, first try the buttons alone. Does the scale turn on? Does it weigh something? Can you tare it?

Later firmware may not need going into that mode. I think you can now update directly from the app.

I find my Acaia Pearl scale's buttons to be brutally insensitive frequently FWIW.

I had the same experience. Ended up purchasing the Lunar - no problems.

Acaia has great customer service in my experience, reach out to their team and they'll help you out.
