Question about Honeywell Programmable Thermostat Heater

2 Answers

Rth230b honeywell display screen faint

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.

    I walked across the room and shocked my TH104 Economizer by Cosmo thermostat and then it wouldn't work after that. I tried re-setting it, and it still won't allow me to program it. I also tried replacing the bateries and still nothing. The screen either displays everything in 8's or 0's, but I can't get it to allow me to change the temperature. I'm assuming I have to get a new thermostat based on your comment to the previous person?

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:


http://www.bgesmartenergy.com/media/pr/thermostat-operation-manual.pdf


  1. Press System – it will blink
  2. Press & Hold Square 3 + 5 at the same time
  3. 120 change with up arrow to 280
  4. 0 = OFF and 1 = ON
  5. Hit Done button
That is it for mine! Hope this helps.

I've clicked on Abode settings on my screen which I don't want how do I undo this please


What settings changed on your screen? The icons got bigger or smaller? If so Click Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. Open the display and click the Settings Tab to change the Resolution. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons. The lower the resolution, the larger the icons.

If that is not what you are looking for you can always run System Restore to go to a Restore Point (date and Time) before you made the Adobe change. System Restore does not delete your data.
In Windows XP and Vista click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and select a restore point that was before you started having problems. There should be an option to see more restore points than the one that is shown.

In Windows 7 Click Start then in the search box type System Restore.

Again, System Restore does not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the restore point you selected).

System Recovery on the other hand deletes everything and sets your system back to when you first purchased it.

Very faint sound on everything, including system sounds. when playing a cd, can hear music, but not lead vocals except faintly. are the speakers shot? Everything was okay yesterday, and no settings have...


First of all, if you have volume controls on the keyboard, please make sure you turn the volume up from that location.

Next, locate the Speaker icon next to the time in the lower right corner of the screen. Double or single Click on that and make sure the volume slide bar is all the way to the top. If you don't have a speaker icon, roll over these icons slowly and an info bubble will pop up. Look for one that involves audio. If you right click on the icon, you may be able to select volume mixer or something similar, there you will find multiple volume settings, turn all up.

Finally, if you are having this problem when using a media player (Windows Media Player, VLC, Quicktime, etc), there will be a separate volume control within the player itself. They are usually a slide bar underneath the video or graphics display. Turn this up also.

Please note that if you are using a laptop, Laptop speakers are notoriously of poorer quality and lack the wattage of desktop speakers. In turn, it may not be a problem with your laptop2_bing.gif. You may need to look into purchasing an inexpensive set of external speakers.

This is a failure in the electronic range (or oven control) ERC or EOC. You can replace it with a new one, or have it repaired.
