SOURCE: The outdoor temperature & hygrometer

Hi Walter,

I found this in the manual, simply pressing the RESET button won't start communication again. Try this:

Your main unit displays current, minimum, and
maximum temperature and humidity readings
collected by the remote sensor and main unit.
Outdoor data is collected and displayed every
40 seconds and indoor data is collected and
displayed every 10 seconds.

The red LED flashes whenever the sensor
transmits an RF signal to the receiver.
select sensor or use auto scan

• Press CHANNEL to switch between
sensors 1-3.
• To auto-scan between sensors, press and hold
CHANNEL for 2 seconds. Each sensor's data
will be displayed for 3 seconds. To end autoscan,
press CHANNEL or MEMORY.
• Press and hold CHANNEL and MEMORY
simultaneously to search for remote sensors.
resetting the system
The RESET buttons are located on the back of the
main unit and sensor. Use a pointed subject to
press RESET when you change the batteries and
whenever the system malfunctions.

You must move the remote sensor close to the base unit to reset it and it will work fine. After it shows the temp then you can move it back to its location. thanks for asking at Fixya.com.

Why can't I receive input from the outside sending unit?


Make sure that all the batteries are good!!
This procedure outlines the typical process to pair the sensor and base.
Base Station Battery Installation

·Remove the printed vinyl label from the LCD screen of the base station
·Position the remote sensor near the base station
·Open the battery compartment at the back of the base station and insert (2) AA batteries according to the polarity markings. Replace the battery compartment cover.
·Within a short time the RF signal icon (located to the left of the outdoor temperature channel indicator) will start flashing. This indicates that the base station is ready to pick up the RF outdoor temperature signal from the remote sensor. It will continue to flash for 3 minutes or until the signal from the remote sensor is detected.

Register the Remote Sensor
·Open the battery compartment at the back of the remote sensor and slide the channel selector switch to your desired channel. For the first remote you may select any channel, for additional remotes select any unused channel
·Insert (2) AAA batteries according to the polarity markings. Be sure to install the batteries in the remote within the time that the RF signal icon is flashing on the base station. 1541 WeatherGuide Wireless Weather Forecaster with Barometer

Model c87214. Why does it keep losing outdoor temp signal?


I have had that experience. You may have to repeat initial installation once more before concluding the system is n.g. Remove batteries from the indoor receiver. Review the instructions and verify transmitter was installed in correct location. Do this as you are removing transmitter batteries. For luck, install new batteries in the transmitter. At the receiver, reinstall batteries (or install new batteries). After approx. 10 min., you should see temperature displayed. My LaCrosse system has its wacky days, sometimes displaying no temperature or an abnormally high temperature when morning sun hits the transmitter. Also, successfully resetting is a once-in-a-blue-moon affair.

How do I reset the time on my smartgear weather station


I have two of these and they lose the signal occasionally. Per the manual: Make sure all batteries are good and then press the TX button on the remote sensor for 3 seconds so it sends a wireless signal to the weather station. It should beep. Then on the weather station hold the CH button for 5 seconds to make it search for the transmitter until the outside temp appears. Just removing batteries and reinstalling them in various orders doesn't work. You must re-establish the wireless connection between the outdoor sensor and weather station.

I assume you have tried removing the batteries at both ends, reinstalling batteries at the sensor end then the indoor end, waiting without touching anything until the outdoor temp registers and heaving a sigh of relief as things are back to normal. I also assume since the word atomic is in the header that you have an atomic clock function. If nothing works or doesn't work right you probably need to replace the system.

I have a much simpler LaCrosse system which, at this moment, is showing an outside temp of 56 degrees BUT the clock doesn't work and failed early on. I share your frustration.

Cannot get the weather station model ws-916ou-it to show outside temperature


I have three of these WS-916OU-IT units. After a few years, the outside sensor just fails. You will get dashes and a "TR" low battery signal, even if the batteries are good
just buy another whole weather station (short money) and set both the old and new weather station unit to receive from the single new outdoor sensor.
To do this - just follow the procedure for a single sensor - that is - put the batteries in the new sensor - then within 30 seconds - put the batteries in all the weather stations - they will all pick up the same outdoor sensor.
I now have three units running off of one outdoor sensor.
Seems a bit silly, but it works.

The weather Forecast Icons don't change on my honeywell weather station model # TE852W


Hi,

This problem could arise due to various reasons
1)Replace the batteries in remote sensors
When the batteries are properly installed, the remote weather sensor will resume sending signals to the main unit.To enforce an immediate remote signals search, press and hold
DOWN on the main unit.

2)Remote thermo-hygrometer sensor could be weak in sending the signal about weather Forecast.Test it properly.

3)Reset the unit and check


post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

I had the same problem and finally found my manual. Here's what to do, everyone!

1. Take back panel off the sending unit, where the three batteries are, by unscrewing the 4 phillips head screws (assuming you, like I, had put the screws back in after installing new batteries). You will see a little gray button in a hole above where the batteries are; the little button is one you can push down with the same phillips screwdriver you took the 4 screws out with - don't do this yet.

2. Now, hold down the "channel" button on front of receiver panel for 2 sec, until the dash in the "ch" box and the place where the temp is supposed to be starts blinking.

3. Now, while these indicia are blinking on the panel, push the little gray button down and hold it for 2 seconds. This causes the transmitter to "register" with the receiver. You should now see a 1 in the "ch" box and get a temp reading.

4. Put screws back on, put receiver where you want it, proceed with rest of your life.
