    Yes, I found the manual online for the clock.  It said to take the batteries out of both the tranmitter and the clock and then put the batteries back in the clock and then the transmitter.  I did wait about ten minutes after taking out the batteries.  As soon as I did that the transmitter worked again...the only down fall is you have to reset the date, times zone, etc on the clock.

    I have a simuar problem, changed batteries but still have an intermittent with two horizontal lines depending on temp or sensor??. Only two years old!! Is it a bad sensor, and if so, where can I get a new one?

    Remote temperatue is not displayed on my Model 87800 Skyscan. I removed the batteries from the clock and the transmitter, replaced the clock batteries first, then the clock. There was a remote temperature displayed for a short time then it went blank. I checked battery voltage and current drain. The transmitteer isn't working.

    Where do I get a new transmitter, or do you have to throw the whole thing out and replace it?

    Appreciate any information you might provide.

Model 86722
Problem:
"--.-" appears in the outdoor temperature section of the LCD.
Solution:
1) Remove the batteries of both units for one minute, then reinsert them again. Make sure the batteries are new and fresh.
2) Move the Atomic Clock closer to the transmitter or place the transmitter closer to the Skyscan Atomic Clock. Make sure the clock is at a receivable range from the transmitter.
3) Move the units to another location. Interferences from other electrical devices operating on the same signal frequency (433MHz) may prevent correct signal transmission and reception.

I put new batteries in Transmitter and never got any temp reading.The unit is less than 2 years old and is not working. Is there anything I can do?


  • Remove all batteries
  • Install new batteries in transmitter
  • Wait for transmitter to initialize and begin transmitting temperature data
  • Install known-good batteries in receiver
  • Observe outdoor temperature reading
If this doesn't work, the transmitter or receiver or both may be defective. I find in very cold weather the transmitter stops sending the temperature.

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.

Model c87214. Why does it keep losing outdoor temp signal?


I have had that experience. You may have to repeat initial installation once more before concluding the system is n.g. Remove batteries from the indoor receiver. Review the instructions and verify transmitter was installed in correct location. Do this as you are removing transmitter batteries. For luck, install new batteries in the transmitter. At the receiver, reinstall batteries (or install new batteries). After approx. 10 min., you should see temperature displayed. My LaCrosse system has its wacky days, sometimes displaying no temperature or an abnormally high temperature when morning sun hits the transmitter. Also, successfully resetting is a once-in-a-blue-moon affair.

Can reset everything on my SkyScan Atomic Clock except for the outside temp. Have new batteries in both units. Main clock and outside remote thermostate..Any suggestions??


I expect that since the unit reads the outside temperature from the remote thermostat, there is no need to "reset" the displayed number since this data is obtained live from the thermostat.

I am unable to get the remote temperature to show on the base unit. It appears that there is no signal.


In general, batteries are installed in the remote transmitter first and time is allowed for the transmitter to begin sending data. Batteries are installed in the receiver next and you should see the outside temperature displayed.

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.

Can't get outside temp on my atomic clock


If you still have the instructions read up on pairing the transmitter to the clock. You'll need to do that every time you change batteries on the outside transmitter. If you don't have those instructions , go to the clock's web page to get the manual for your model of clock.

Be sure to follow replacing batteries instructions carefully. Be sure transmitter is not out of range.Install batteries in out side transmitter first. maybe this will help . I am not sure.

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.

Remote Sensor


make sure your time is set and the atomic clock time is recieved, then leaving the rear cover off of the transmitter, push the "tx" button not the "c/f" that is just for centegrade or ferenhight. you will see the red light on the front of reciever flash in a few seconds. The temp should display on your clock screen. If not, did the red l.e.d. light on transmitter flash. If not, its not sending data to clock. I have to reset and hit transmit every time I replace batteries on transmitter. Had no problems for over 2 years of using outside. If your not getting a reading with transmitter sitting next to clock after hitting "tx" button you may have defective transmitter.
