SOURCE: WR-100 WEATHER RADIO

The WR-100 is slightly smarter than the average basic weather radio and therefore has a fair amount of programming loaded into it's firmware. (for good or bad)

It's not impossible for a power failure or spike to cause the internal processor to become confused every once and a while.

You may need to perform a full reset.

Remove the power adapter, remove the batteries and then press and hold the "WEATHER / SNOOZE" bar to bleed off any remaining charge in the capacitors and then plug the AC adapter back in.

Install fresh or known good batteries.

You've now essentially "rebooted" your radio and hopefully it will now function correctly again.

The only drawback is that you will have to reset any custom programming. As nifty as SAME technology is, I rarely use the function.

SOURCE: keeps flashing check reception

I unplugged mine, took out the back up batteries, and waited several minutes.

I reinstalled the batteries, plugged it back in, and reset the time.

For now, it seems to have solved the problem.

With this radio receiver you have to set the county or counties code for the alert system to work. This encoded tones turn the radio to receive the alert signals.

Weather radio just gives off high pitch squeal and no weather info.


If you hold the WEATHER/SNOOZE button and the VOLUME UP button, it resets the radio to its deafult factory settings.

We have had severe weather all day and it didn't go off. It had been working perfectly for a year. When I turn on the weather/snooze button I get a constant loud squeal on every channel. any ideas??


Check this website's FAQs page- http://www.crh.noaa.gov/lsx/?n=nwrfaq. Your answer may be in FAQ #10. It may be also that your local NWS transmitter may not have been receiving a good transmission because of the type of severe weather that you had. Maybe you should call your local NWS office and plea your case. I don't know if this will help, but this is my suggestion.
