Question about SkyScan 86742 Digital Atomic Wall Clock

1 Answer

Outside temperture my clock does not show outside temperture I too have changed batteries several times. My problem is an incorrect temperature is shown. I e-mailed Skyscan to determine if the Atomic Clock could be the problem and not the outdoor transmitter. That way I would'nt mind buying a new transmitter.

Try changing the batteries in the CLOCK. I had the same problem in a 3M similar clock and it didn't read the transmitter correctly or eventually, at all, when the CLOCK batteries were getting low.

I have eight atomic clocks,none of them have the outside temperature working,all have new batteries???


If your outside temperature is not showing on your clock, that may mean that the clock and the transmitter have lost their connection. To reconnect them you must first take the batteries out of both of the units for 15 minutes. First put the batteries back into the transmitter, and then the clock. Let them sit side by side inside your home. When both the indoor and outdoor temperatures show on your clock with the same reading, or within two degrees of each other, then you may put your transmitter back outside. Remember to keep the transmitter out of the direct sun in a dry place. Also keep it away from metal, which can affect the readings.

Outside temperture does not display on clock


Make sure the out door sensor has fresh batteries, and that the clock inside is close to the location of the sensor outside so they can connect. If none of that works, time to replace the unit.....

hello lucy... you most likely have some corrosion in the outdoor component. Remove the batteries from the outdoor component and clean the battery contacts with the eraser end of a common pencil. Reinstall the batteries and then give it up to 8 hours to start reporting accurately again. Joe

Skyscan digital wall clock just quit showing outside temperature


you probably need to 'pair' the outdoor sensor with the main base: look for a 'channel' button, as these units usually can get information from several sensors and differentiate them by a channel number.

Try changing the battereis in the CLOCK. When the batteries in the clock start getting low, the clock does not pick up the outside transmitter.

Out side temperature reading


Without having parts to try, this would be difficult to know what the fault is. Inside this unit there is a circuit board, and on the outside there is the exernal temperature sensor.

There are only a few things that can go wrong. There is not much that is servicable unless you can find a spare board, or a spare temperture probe. There is very little posiblity that in any practicality this unit can be serviced at the component level.

I would just go out and buy a new unit.

Outside temperture


After changing the batteries on the outside unit, remove the batteries from the clock for a few minutes, then replace them. This will reset the clock to 'talk' to the transmitter.
