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.

Outside temperature not working on Atomic Clock (was working last night). Changed the batteries in both the outside transmitter and the clock tonight. Clock reset within minutes, but the outside...


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

My atomic clock won't show the outside temperature and I can't get it set for regular time, it only shows military time. How do I fix these two problems?


Hi


If you have lost the outside temperature on the clock display then do the following:-

1. Make sure you have good batteries installed in the remote transmitter
2. Remove the batteries from the main clock and keep them out until the clock display disappears.
3. Re-install the batteries in the clock.
4. Wait until the display returns and includes the outside temperature display as well.
5. Set the clock again for current time/date etc.

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.

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.

Remote Sensor


make sure your time is set and the atomic clock time is recieved, then leaving the rear cover off of the transmitter, push the "tx" button not the "c/f" that is just for centegrade or ferenhight. you will see the red light on the front of reciever flash in a few seconds. The temp should display on your clock screen. If not, did the red l.e.d. light on transmitter flash. If not, its not sending data to clock. I have to reset and hit transmit every time I replace batteries on transmitter. Had no problems for over 2 years of using outside. If your not getting a reading with transmitter sitting next to clock after hitting "tx" button you may have defective transmitter.

Resetting the atomic clock to the correct time zone, and outside temp to work.


For the Sharp SPC374T Atomic Clock - Time Zone setting- Press the 'Time' button once, the time zone will show where 'Day' usually is, use the Up or Down buttong to adjust.

For the outdoor Thermo, credit to my neighbor for this one. Remove battery from main unit, wait 2-3 minutes. Reload batteries. Once you get a reading from the outdoor sensor, hit the reset on the main unit. You will have to reset the time zone as described above, but this worked for me after 10 months of no outside temp showing up!

Good luck,
Doc

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.
