Display hard to read

The station, etc display is very hard to read as is the labels adjacent to the display. Using new batteries or household outlet doesn't help. The radio otherwise is working correctly.Is the display just wearing out? The raio is not that old.

My radio was dropped and parts of the display disappeared, but the display did not break. Unless you have some background in radio repair, DO NOT attempt this repair! If you do, it is at your risk, or the risk of damaging your radio! I disassembled the radio and found the display. There are 2 "rubber strips" that fit next to the LCD. I cleaned and reseated the strips and display about 3 times before getting it right. AGAIN, unless you know what you are doing, and can solder on circuit boards with a proper pencil iron, don't even contemplate it! Let someone who can do it.

I have a new weathr station and can not get the outside temp. to display what can I do?


I assume it is a wireless station. If so, there is a procedure to go through to get the temperature sender and the base station to sync up and work. You need to check your owners manual to get the exact procedure for your unit. On my station, I have to remove the battery from the base station, let it power up and within 5 minutes, install the battery in the remote station(s) (temperature, rain gauge, wind gauge, etc.). Also, you must keep the remote station within a certain range for the base to get a good signal. Probably 25 feet, but the owners manual will have the right number. Also, use new batteries.

Outdoor temperature reading shows -40 with wind chill -62. Outdoor temp is in fact +45.


We would recommend a hard reset of your Weather Station. Please verify that you are using a good-quality, standard alkaline battery such as Energizer or Rayovac, and then follow the steps below.

1. Bring both the sensor and display unit indoors and remove at least one battery from each.
2. Make sure the A-B-C switch on both units match. Sometimes changing to a different channel can help.
3. Reinstall the battery in the outdoor sensor.
4. Reinstall battery into the display unit.
5. Let the units sit within a couple feet of each other for about 20 minutes to gain a strong connection.

Outside temp


Remove all batteries. Reinstall batteries (or new ones) in the outside unit. Install batteries in the console. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING! Wait until the outside temperature displays on the console. Make any adjustments necessary.

Remove new batteries from the indoor station. Carefully remove batteries from the remote sensor, then reinstall. Reinstall new batteries in the indoor station. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING FOR AT LEAST 10 MINUTES. You should see the outdoor temperature displayed and can then proceed with other settings.

It's not clear what the ciscumstances are.

However, I give it a try.


=Settings=
Maybe you just got this phone, installed it by hooking up the power. In such case you should carefulle have read the manual.
1) Power
Did you connect the poweradapter ?

2) Line
A) Some phones require a cable-connection (RJ45 connector), either to another phone-station or straight to the land-line inside your house / office. Check this connection if you made this cable-connection.

B) Some DECT-type, and require another (wireless) station to be connected to (wireless). Check the manual how to connect your phone to this remote, wireless station.

=Hardware=
In some cases you might face some hardware / technical problems.
1) Battery

If there's no light at the display, you got probably a battery-problem. If you own this device already for a long time, you might have a fair chance the battery is old and should be replaced.

If the phone is new, you should check the power-adapter which is charging the phone (it's batteries).

A) Power
Check if it is connected well to the power-outlet. Some adapters contain a built-in small LED (light), which will emit light when connected to the wall-outlet. When plugged in correctly, the LED should emit light (red or green).

B) No contact
The module, or also called "station" is the part where the phone slides in, when you're not using your phone. However, it's possible the connection from the adapter to the phone is not perfect.

= Poweradapter
The other end of the poweradapter should be plugged correctly into the module/holder.

= Mis-agignment
The module / station contain some (gold-alike) pins. The phone, contains gold alike pads, which should connect to these pins, when the phone is located in the module.
Sometimes, due to malfunction in manufacturing-, or even logistic process, the pins might get mis-aligned. Or, even rough (ab)use of sliding the phone back into the station might result in mis-alignment of these pins. In such case you can (carefully!) re-align these pins.

I hope you could locate your problem and solve it by this message.

Mains adapter for auto-xs power station not working


It could be that the internal battery is too discharged for the AC charger (as supplied with the Power Station) to work.
You could try charging the Power Station using a Vehicle (Car/Motorbike) 12 Volt battery charger, connecting the Crocodile clips on each unit.
I''ve just done that, although once 'I'd got the Power Station battery's voltage above 2 Volts, I used a 'special' charger (Optimate 5) that automatically applies several modes including 'Desulfation' for recovery.

My new storm tracker STX7500 weathertech does not display the outside temperature


Take out the batteries in the main station for at least 5 min. Also, check the batteries on your outside station and make sure that they are new and the same brand, not rechargeables. Make sure that the outside station is reading a temperature and humidity first. Make sure that the outside gauge is close enough to your inside station. Having your inside station to near electrical or metal things or the outside station too far from the inside station is the most likely of your problems. To test this, once you've restarted your inside station, bring it close to the outside station and see if it's reading. Also, check the bottom right to see if your inside station has an antenna icon. If so, it's just updating from the radio station that updates your station often. Wait for that antenna to disappear from the bottom screen before trying to figure if your outside station is reading correctly. Finally, make sure that you have the right time zone, state, and city programmed into your inside station. If none of these work, call or e-mail the link in your book. Hope this works.
