Did you try using the leveling foot to bring the pointer up to "0" ?

Sounds like the pan side is too light. Are you missing part of the pan assembly, or using the wrong pan? In any case, add some weight to the pan until you get the pointer close enough to "0" to go the rest of the way using the levelling foot.
