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.

My grandma has recently been gifted a Polaroid TV as a Christmas gift. When the free view channels had the TV reset she lost the signal to an outdoor cctv camera for the building. We can't seem to get it...

probably the camera is either analogue or video . How was it connected to the TV via the Aerial Cable or via an AV input
If the camera is Analogue it may be on a ATV channel. So you would need to switch the input Source on the remote for the tv and check the ATV channels. If it was on a AV then try checking the AV input sources.
The free view channels is probably DTV source . .

Ws 2800 rain not displayed

I tried this and it worked fine
A Factory Reset will erase the connection between the Display and the Thermo-hygro sensor and allow a fresh connection to be re-established. It is recommended to have the display and all sensors 5-10 feet apart for this restart.

Press and hold the SET button until you enter the program menu. Press and release the SET button until you see 'rES oFF' flashing.

Use the UP ARROW key or DOWN ARROW key to turn rES on.

Press the SET key to confirm and a countdown timer will begin counting down from 127. When the timer displays dOnE, you must remove the batteries from the display for 10 minutes

While the batteries are out of the display, also remove the batteries from the Thermo-hygro sensor and the Rain sensor. Wait 15 minutes.

Gently key the wind sensor one time to activate the sensor.

Insert fresh alkaline batteries into the Thermohygro sensor and Rain sensor make sure to check polarity with the markings on the battery cover and inside the battery compartment. Wait 2 minutes.

INSTALL BATTERIES INTO DISPLAY: Insert fresh alkaline batteries into the Display. Make sure to check polarity with the markings inside the battery compartment
15 MINUTES: Wait 15 minutes for the outdoor weather data to display. If the outdoor data displays dashes after waiting for 15 minutes, repeat the steps of restart.

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


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:-)

Dashes in my outdoor weather reading of Oregon Scientific station

The signals are not being received by the main unit. Try to reposition the unit or move it to a different location. Also make sure the antenna is in the clear and not next to any thing like a cordess phone or charger as these can make RF noise that can block or cover the needed signals.
