Q: Anyone have advice on the unit when it displays P O S. I've tried brand new batteries, taking out batteries overnight. Thanks for any help!

submitted by Tred - 6 years ago
  • A: We will be happy to help you. Please make sure that you are following the steps below to ensure an accurate reading: 1. Always make sure the sensor lens is clean. You may clean the sensor lens by gently rubbing it with a Q-tip with isopropyl/rubbing alcohol. Once this is done, please allow the thermometer to dry for about 10 minutes, as the rubbing alcohol has a cooling effect. 2. Be sure to use a probe tip cover with this thermometer with each use to prevent any build up or damage from occurring to the sensor lens. 3. For proper placement, do not twist or force the thermometer when it is in someone’s ear, as this will point the sensor away from the eardrum and result in an inaccurate reading. If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact our consumer relations team by emailing us at SocialSupport@HelenofTroy.com. Thank you.

  • A: It might mean Position. -try alternative way of placing the Thermometer in the ear. Check the booklet it came with. It should say there but that would be my guess

    submitted byMimi - 6 years ago
  • A: yes, it has to do with the position. I find I get a reading every other time. wld not buy again.

It gives different readings on each ear. How could it be off by so much? 101.3 in one ear, and 99.7 in the other? Which one is accurate? Once it gave me a reading of 104.1 to my toddler, so I rushed to the hospital and when I got there the triage nurse took the temp and it was 98.7 within 15 minutes of the 104 reading. Inaccurate thermometer at its best!

Best thermometer ever! I was gifted our original one at my baby shower 10 years ago and it’s still going strong! I bought this one as a back up (temporarily lost the other) and my only complaint is it doesn’t come with a storage case like the original. The case was great because you use it to also store those little protective plastic things in it. Now I have to keep track of that tiny box (because you know it will never find its way back to where it belongs) and try to keep it from falling open and spilling (because you know those tabs never stay closed) Yay. Just what all moms love; more work! If you can find one with a case, do yourself a favor, and get that one. It will save what little sanity you have left when your kid wakes up at 3am puking and you can’t find those darn protective things. It would also be nice if the screen was back lit, again, for the middle of the night.

Just got this thermometer and chose the brand because I wanted one I could trust. They are so expensive but I really needed one. I got home and realized you can only use it with disposable covers. So basically when I run out and my kid has a fever I’m supposed to go out and waste money on covers at 2 am? No. SO annoyed. I am returning for a different brand. Also I found the temp to seem a little inaccurate as others mentioned.

I Bought this after I was convinced my $10 Target Therometer was inaccurate. Nope, they were within few tenths of each other. I don't like how temps can vary between ears though (Like A Few Degrees). And I don't like how if there is a fever, there isnt an alert (lights up or beeps).

No seal on packaging whatsoever. Opened item and it has evidently been used as the thermometer was dirty (some patches of an unknown sticky substance) and covered with scratches! Unbelievable.
