HX711 weighing scales Arduino project help

Hello, i'm currently doing a project and basically follwing these steps https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/load-cell-amplifier-hx711-breakout-hookup-guide As far as I can tell it is wired up correctly(via multimeter)

|500x434

|500x434

However when doing the calibration the load never changes, it stays at 0 regardless of weight on the scale. On the combinator board, the W/Red wire is 1KOhm whereas Band R are 2KOhm just like the sparkfun tutorial states. The pins are all matched up between the combinator board and HX711 and the multimeter reads through fine detecting all of this.

Any idea why??

Thanks
