Go to www.lacrossetechnology.com and see what you can find regarding model TX29. I have a LaCrosse 8005 right in front of me and it has a switch for F or C. You also can select your time zone.

My 1510-IT came with a faulty battery cover top for the rain guage. There should be a metallic clip mounted to the cover to tie the 2 batteries together electrically. Mine had nothing there. I soldered a wire between the 2 batteries and used some cardboard under the cover to make sure the batteries were pushed down into their holder. Problem solved!

I can't imagine this is systemic but it happened to me.

Press and hold the SET key for 5 seconds. Press set key repeatedly until TZ is displayed on the bottom. Use the "+" key to set the time zone. -8 is for Pacific Time Zone, it will display -8 PST in the display. Press set to go to the DST setting, and so on until you've cycled through the options.

Hello. Not certain what you are trying to do with the clock, so I have attached the link to the company's list of manuals. Simply select the make and model you have, and the information should help you. Failing that, the company does have a contact page, and I am certain they will be able to assist. Good luck.

If this has helped, please rate it a four thumbs up. Thank You.

Hello


To set up your clock simply install one fresh AA, LR6 ALKALINE battery. Due to the nature of long wave radio signals it is normally not possible to receive a signal during the day so it is best to install the battery late in the evening. Select your time zone by pressing one of the four time zone buttons PT-Pacific Time, MT-Mountain Time, CT-Central Time, ET-Eastern Time. The time zone buttons may be pressed any time after installing the batteries. If multiple buttons are pressed the clock will set to the time zone selected last. If no time zone is selected the clock will default to Pacific Time. Another time zone can be selected during or after the clock has set itself. Your clock can only set itself to one of the four time zones stated above. For time zones outside of PT, MT, CT or ET you must manually set the time using the Manual Time set button on the back of the movement.
When the battery is installed the second hand will advance eight seconds (two seconds per step x four steps). The clock is now searching for a signal. For the initial setting it is recommended to stand the clock in an upright position near a window. Within five minutes the clock will either receive the WWVB signal and set itself to the exact time, or it will determine that the signal is not receivable at its current location and time of day. If a signal is not receivable it will fast-forward the hands to the 4, 8, or 12 o'clock position and search for WWVB each

hour until a signal is received. If the time is manually set the clock will continue to periodically search for a signal and automatically reset the hands when the signal is received.
Select a location to place your radio controlled clock where it will be at least six feet away from a TV, computer, air conditioner or other household electrical appliances. The optimal location is near a window. Windows facing Colorado providing the best signal. The WWVB time signal will easily penetrate Masonry and wood framed buildings. WWVB will penetrate almost every residential building and most steel buildings if they have adequate windows. It is not possible, however, for WWVB to penetrate most indoor shopping malls and rooms in the center of large office buildings that do not have windows. In buildings that WWVB cannot penetrate you may set the time using the manual time set button. When the clock is exposed to the WWVB signal it will automatically set the hands to the exact time.
Ok.

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.

We now have two wall clocks that have stopped. Replacing batteries has not worked. Are they repairable? Can we get new or reconditioned movements?


Hello
Check its battery contacts for any rust or dust. Anyway clean it well and put the pattery, and check whether it is working or not.

Battery - The La Crosse Technology clock must have a fresh battery to receive and process the time signal.

Location - Try a different location, ideally near a window. It should be at least six feet from computers, TVs, air conditioners, other Radio-

Controlled clocks and other electrical appliances that cause interference.

Weather - Electrical storms between you and Colorado during the night will interfere with the WWVB signal.

Although we cannot control the weather we can help you predict it (see www.lacrossetechnology.com).

Daylight Savings Time

The National Institute of Standards and Technology and WWVB encode a special DST "bit" in the WWVB transmission for DST. Your La

Crosse Technology clock will read this information and automatically advance the hands one hour in the spring and eleven hours in the fall.

Arizona and Indiana

If you live in an area that does not recognize DST you must press the (unmarked) DST button for one second to deactivate your clock's DST
program. To reactivate the DST program simply press the DST button again for one second.
If you cant rectify the probelem, contact

La Crosse, WI 54601

Phone: 608.782.1610

The device is a repairable one. OK.
