Introduction: How to Fix Digital Calipers
In this instructable I will show you how to fix calipers that show a false value. It's worked for me and some other people and it should work for you.
The reason that it shows incorrect values is because is uses capacitance to measure the value and the circuit board van sometimes touch the metal.
Parts and tools:
Small Phillips head screw driver
Step 1: Take Off Label
On the back of your calipers there should be a sticker that says metr. ISO take that sticker off and you will find screws under it.
Step 2: Take Off Screws
Unscrew the 4 screws then take the front off of the calipers and turn it around. You should see a circuit board that looks like this.
Step 3: Tape
Put a small piece of tape over the circuit board I used masking tape but scotch tape also works.
Step 4: Screw Screws
Screw the screws that you removed earlier and place the label on I left the label off because it didn't stick to the back.
Step 5: Thanks!

Hey, Where did you put the tape exactly, and how much did you use? This particular photo actually does not help at all :( Cheers
