I have a La Crosse W86111 and the outside temp blinks? It didn't do this when I first got it 2 months ago.

There may be defective batteries or a poor battery connection at the transmitting end.

New la crosse technology wind speed weather station model # CA87092 set up.wind speed and outdoor temperature showed until this batteries used yesterday in setup. what is the problem?

The instructions for your station call for a specific set up procedure. Batteries should be installed in the transmitter first with time allowed for it to initialize and begin sending data. After installing batteries in the receiver, you should see wind speed and temperature displayed. BUT, here in the real world I have a Lacrosse receiver currently displaying a balmy 67 degrees inside and a not-so-balmy - - outside. I believe the alkaline batteries used in the transmitter lose efficiency or freeze at low temperatures. Warmer weather restores the outside temperature display.

Outdoor Temperature Transmitter not working

Sometimes, you have to remove all the batteries in the transmitter and receiver and wait a few minutes before the next step.

Then you replace transmitter batteries first and within 30 seconds, get the batteries installed in the receiver. This allows the receiver to link up with your transmitter. Both units need to be reset this way. You'll see the temperature and any other information the transmitter provides come up in a few minutes. This works with my La Crosse weather station. Using the reset buttons without removing power will not work. My nieghbour has a weather station from another manufacturer and this is also the only way that his will link up.

Changed batteries,now weatherstation does not receive outdoor imformation

La Crosse is very specific about what you should do and how you should do it for a battery replacement.
Begin by removing all batteries, both outdoor and indoor. Install new batteries in the outdoor unit. Allow the time it takes to get from the outside to the inside for the outside unit to initialize and begin sending data. Install batteries in the indoor unit and observe outdoor temperature. You should see indoor temperature as well. Finally, set the time. This last can be tricky as it seems difficult to set an exact time. I have two different La Crosse receivers connected to one transmitter and the one in front of me now is indicating 70 deg F indoors and 80 deg F outdoors.

How do I set up my skyscan temperature transmitter

These devices are very particular about how they are set up. You are supposed to insert batteries in the transmitter first then wait awhile until it gets in the mood to start transmitting. Next, insert batteries in the clock and wait for the two units to begin "talking to each other".

My La Cross Technology 9035 weather station display everything in the number 8

The instructions are specific regarding the order of battery replacement. First, the outside followed by a pause to allow the ouside unit to begin communicating. Next, the inside unit with a pause until results are displayed.

There is no signal from the outside sensor for wind, temperature etc. New batteries made no difference.

I had the same issue. I ended up actually cutting the enclosure off to look inside. (I figured "It's not working anyway, what do I have to lose.") A good number of the conductors on the printed circuit board were corroded to the point that they were gone. Some components were literally falling off the board.

I am pretty good with a soldering iron but after looking at the damage, I threw the transmitter away.

I need a new transmitter, clock works fine?

The clock actually receives the radio signal on it's own, you don't need to transmit the time to the clock on your own.

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.

Outside temp not measuring correctly

I keep the outside unit of our in/out set under a coffee can shaded under a bench; one could argue the aesthetics but shielding it from wind and sun is mandatory otherwise one can get record temps pretty often.
The outside units generally transmit to the receivers only every few minutes to keep battery consumption down so moving them won't necessary gie you an immediate change.
