Outside temp can't get the right temp for outside. It's 40 outside but it says 68. Also do you have to do anything for Day light savings?

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.

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

How do i get the outside temp. to work

If you have a outside sensor add betteries.Wait for it to connect to the base. You may have to "reboot" ,remove batteries from base and outside temp sensor and replace both, Patiently WAIT I have a similar device and once a year I replace the batteries It takes a while for the devices to re-connect and set , the atomic clock as well. That said, How far is the Temp Sensor from the base unit? I set my outside sensor near the base to connect and move it on th outside porch (30' away) out of the direct sun and rain. I not sure if this is necessary but that the way I reset them.

Oregon scientific IWA 80055 Outside temp won't display and I have replaced the batteries on the sending unit and it blinks two times every few seconds.

I have the same unit (IWA-80055) and after not finding anything helpful on the net, I just messed with it until I got it fixed. Here's what to do:

1. Take the cover off the back of the remote sensor.

2. Set the chanel to ch.1. (I tried all three but only ch.1 worked for me).

3. Use several tools. (i.e. a stick, needle, what ever you can but you need two) and hold down the reset button on both the sensor and the clock. (at the same time.)

If done right, it should only take a few seconds to start.

The outside temp is delayed at first. Be patient.

I have a skyscan atomic clock, model 88900. I've absoltely LOVED it until the outside temperature quit being displayed. I have changed the batteries 2x's according to the instructions and have used NEW...

This is a very common problem that is most frequently caused by the outdoor transmitter going bad. They are surprisingly delicate and don't like getting wet.

You can order replacement transmitters from

They only cost $11 and that includes shipping and handling.

Wireless thermo clock not reading outside temp

I've had a similar problem with another model, an Oregon Scientific Model IWA-80055 Wireless Thermo Clock, in which when I replaced the batteries in the remote sensor, the clock would not read the temperature from the remote sensor.
I found it fairly consistent to solve this by taking a battery out of place in the clock and putting it back in.  Unfortunately this also messed up the clock's time and date.  This is also in the instructions catalogue for the device, check and see if yours gives a similar solution.

Cant get outside time to work???

I have the same problem with mine. The outside temp displays OK for a while, then it displays two dashs. I unplug the main unit from the wall until the outside temp comes back. I then plug it back in and it works OK. I found that if the remote sensor is located more than 40 ft from the main unit and there are a couple of walls between the two, the outside temp fails more often. I have noticed that putting my wireless phone in it's charging craddle can cause the radio or nature sounds to turn on. I moved the main unit further away from the phone and that cured the problem. Sometimes it will do this if the humidity is low and I build up a static charge and then touch the unit.
