Question about SkyScan 86709 Atomic Wall Clock

Open Question

The display screen shows nothing

On Jan. 1, 2009 our SkyScan atomic clock just went blank. We tried new batteries and still have had no luck. I am not sure what model we have, but we bought it from Sam's Club one year ago. What else can we try? Thanks!

I just fooled around with the settings on the back of the clock and now I think I have it. It may or may not work.

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: HOW TO SET SKYSCAN 86715

first make sure there are fresh batteries in the clock. when you first put the batteries in you will need to look on the clock for the buttons that allow you to choose your time zone., press that button. put the clock in a window or near a wall so that the clock back faces toward Colorado (assuming you are in the united states) colorado is where the atomic clock is located. depending on where you are located you may have to wait till early am (3 to 5 am) to get a strong signal form WWV (the call sign of the transmitter station). you clock should automatically set over night and be ready to go the next morning. you can also manually set the clock, but that kind of defeats the purpose. good luck

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.

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.

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.
