Question about Honeywell Programmable Thermostat Heater
The display is very faint and everything is shown, all the icons, just faint. I cannot program it, heat is on, can't set the time it won't work, makes a fast buzzing clicking noise. Happened after I touched it with a static electrical shock, which happens all the time in this house. What should I do? Would getting a new one solve this problem? I already tried replacing batteries many times.
Mike, The static electrical spark probably 'zapped' the Rth230b Honeywell Display unit. If you have already tried removing the power (batteries) from the unit and after waiting several minutes; reapply the power (batteries). If the problems remain unchanged, then it is time to replace the Display unit with a new one. The static electricity problem is problematic and the only way to prevent the same problem from recurring is to discharge yourself before touching the Honeywell Display. As you walk across the room which (probably has carpet), causes the static electricity to build up on your body and then discharges itself through the Display unit when you make contact with the Display unit. You might try coming to a complete stop and attempt to discharge the static charge on your body by touching the wall first with one hand for a second before touching the Display unit with the other hand. Naturally, cold weather with low humidity makes the static electricity worse. Hopes this helps you. Henry

I do not have the same thermostat but did need to turn my display off when sleeping downstairs near the thermostat. So, I called my utility company that installed the Honeywell Utility Pro Series Thermostat and here is how to do it. It was not in the Honeywell User Manual located at:
