Question about Hammacher Schlemmer The Projection Alarm Clock and Weather Monitor

2 Answers

My Hammacher Schlemmer Projection Alarm Clock and Weather Monitor will not project the outside temp. It only projects the inside temp. How do I change? Also, can't change the time zone.

I can not get the clock to project the outside temp. It is projecting the inside temp. I don't know how to get it to change. Also, I can't get it to change the time zone.

    Same problem here (except that the time zone changes as the manual describes). But no outside temperature projected. The outside sensor IS working, evidenced by the outside temperature on the LCD display. But for some reason, the projected outside temperature reads ---F. I want this thing to work.

    OK. There's a secret fix for the lack of outside temperature being projected. Their tech support told me that the outside temperature will NOT display if the sensor is not on channel 1. Here's how to fix:

    1. Remove power and batteries from the clock (inside) unit. Give it a minute or two to completely run out of stored power. The display will flicker and flash and finally fade away.

    2. Change the outdoor sensor to Channel 1. Using a safety pin or other suitable pressing pin, press the reset button in the little holde on the back.

    3. Now, plug the AC power to the inside unit back in.

    4. Re-insert the two batteries into the inside unit.

    5. Change the inside unit to Channel 1 to match the outside sensor.

    6. The outside temperature will show on the LCD display; but probably not yet from the projector.

    7. Wait a while. Within a minute to several hours, the outside temperature will be projected.

    This is straight from the customer Service's very quick reply to my question. They even called me on the phone to help me. I had my doubts, but when I went through that process, it worked and is still working properly.

    Thank you Hammacher Schlemmer Customer Support and specifically to Barb T. for her quick reply,cordial help, and the fix that worked. She made up for the poor instructions.

On the side of the actual projector unit (rotates for positioning of projection) there is a button marked "Flip". Hold this button down for a few seconds, and the temperature will change from indoor to outdoor and vice versa!

    When you hold flip button only changes to - - - and time zone won't change when hold down the + button. This is a replacement unit

No solution but to return it...very annoying product but yet I like the projected display, very sharp and bright. The replacement was much better, it loses connection with outside transmitter often..but occasionally we see the outside temp

    Same here and I'm very disappointed. Would rather it work than to have to send it back.

I bought a HMDX Sleep Station Plus less than a week ago slept for the projector. It now just projects a blue light but no time or temp, the time on the clock also randomly disappears???

25 bucks from Amazon and made in China. The light source shines through an LCD screen and then is focused by the lens.

No idea how to fix it, but I would peer into the light and see if the LCD screen has any figures on it. Did you try focusing it? Kids playing with it?

The reviews on the Amazon cite problems like yours and are genrally NOT favourable. Great idea, but bad workmanship. Here are just two of the reviews. I had to edit their word into sCRAP.

on January 17, 2015 Cheap scrap.. First one had a missing digit in the projected display. The second one, loved it, well for two months until is shorted out. Now it just powers on and off every second. What ever happened to build quality? I loved the features of the clock and the projection of both time and temp. Going to try the Hammacher Schlemmer "Best Projection Clock" now. At least they have a lifetime warranty. Why not make a quality product and charge a few dollars more. 0Comment1 of 1 people found this helpful. Was this review helpful to you?YesNoReport abuse

Do you have to change batteries on clock inside house along with outside batteries to get correct outside temperature

My most consistent (best, repeatable) results with this process are to replace both sets of batteries, both in the clock and in the outside temperature sensing unit. Start by removing all batteries out of everything. Now replace the batteries in the outdoor unit, then (within 30 seconds) replace the clock batteries. The temp unit should begin communicating normally within 5 minutes (or less) and yes, you will have to reset the clock,

Shift 3 Projection Alarm clock remote cannot open

Once the batteries are installed in the remote the temp will appear in the LED screen. Now you are ready to link signals between the main unit and the remote. Simply remove one of the two triple A batteries from the main unit and then replace. You should then see what appears to be a flashing object shaped like a kite with a tail while the two units link up. Then you should see the temp reading at the remote appear in the LED readout at the main unit. By the way there is also a very small reset at the top of the switches on the back of the main unit that can be depressed with a SMALL pointed object like a scissor point or safety pin point.
