Hello and good morning.

Error 12 on the Cas LP-1000N means "Loaded weight is below minimum weight of OIML regulation." OIML stands for International Organization of Legal Metrology and it is the body that is responsible for developing model regulations, standards, and related documents for measuring instruments.

The LP-1000N needs to be re-calibrated. Please note that it would no longer be under warranty because the LP-1000N comes with 1 year warranty and you have had it for 10 years. So, there are 1 of 2 things that you need to do:

(1) For technical support, service, and calibration, contact your local dealer where you purchased your scale.

(2) Call CAS at(###) ###-####for a local authorized CAS Dealer near you.
