Use the Weight Hold mode when the size of the mail piece covers the display screen. With Weight Hold mode activated, your mailstation™ holds the weight and postage amount in memory, and WH appears in the top right-hand corner after you remove your mail piece from your scale.

There are two ways to activate Weight Hold Mode:

To activate Weight Hold Mode through the menu on the meter, follow these steps:
  1. Press Menu.

  3. Press Enter/Yes.
  4. Press Review(Up) until the screen reads Change Weight Hold Setup?.
  5. Press Enter/Yes. Your meter displays Turn On Weight Hold?.
  6. Press Enter/Yes. Your meter returns to the Main screen.
To activate Weight Hold Mode through PC Meter Connect, if your meter is connected to your PC, follow these steps:
  1. Select My Meter.
  2. Select Meter Settings.
  3. Select Weight Hold.
  4. In the Weight Hold field, select Yes from the drop-down options.
