Also,

If you have lost the outside temperature on the clock display after replacing the transmitter battery 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 disappers.
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.
6. Bingo. You are in business.

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 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

Sio/Scan Temperature Transmitter 433MHz for batteries


I just changed the batteries yesterday. It was hard to open the battery compartment with bare hands/finders. I used flat screw driver to poke into the notch in the center of the transmitter. Or you can try poke into any **** around the compartment. It works!

My clock is nort showing up the outside tempertute


Seems to be a consistent problem with Skyscan. I have the 88800 model and my outdoor transmitter isn't transmitting the temperature either. We've replaced the batteries in both the transmitter and clock and nothing for outdoor temp. It's only been used for 9 months.

The outside temp sender won't work. We put new batteries in it, but it does not send a signal. It will not put an outside temp on the clock.


Simple, the instructions state that when changing the batteries on the outside temp. sensor, you must also change the batteries on the main clock unit. I had same problem when I changed the sensor batteries until I pulled the batteries from the clock and it reset fine. ( Sensor batteries first, then clock batteries. ) The clock will reset to atomic time overnight so don't worry if it doesn't read correctly at first.

Outside temperture


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.

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.
