SOURCE: 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.

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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Outside temperature not working on

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

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

This type of device requires battery installation in the transmitter first, then a brief wait for the transmitter to begin sending temperature data. Once the transmitter begis sending data, install batteries in the "receiver" and check for temperature display.

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.

I had one of these a while back and it had a required sequence for putting in the batteries. When the signal dies and you have to replace the transmitter batteries and the clock batteries in a certain sequence. The transmitter batteries cannot just be replaced. You also had to remove the clock batteries, then put in the transmitter batteries, then replace the clock batteries.

The clock stopped showing the outside temperature. Replacing the batteries on the transmitter has not solved the problem. Suggestions?


OFTEN you must re-sync the receiver with the transmitter in these units. Refer to the manual for startup sequence.

We replaced the batteries on our SIO SCAN temp transmitter but it still will not register the outside temperature--what do I do?


Take the batteries out of the clock AND the temp transmitter. Wait about a minute, then replace the clock batteries. Wait another minute, then replace the transmitter batteries. Once the clock synchronizes with the satellite, you will need to set the time zone and whether you want DST on or off.

After replacing the transmitter batteries several times, I tried replacing the clock batteries. They must have been getting low. Once I put in new batteries in the clock it worked fine. Good Luck.
