SOURCE: The outdoor temperature & hygrometer

Hi Walter,

I found this in the manual, simply pressing the RESET button won't start communication again. Try this:

Your main unit displays current, minimum, and
maximum temperature and humidity readings
collected by the remote sensor and main unit.
Outdoor data is collected and displayed every
40 seconds and indoor data is collected and
displayed every 10 seconds.

The red LED flashes whenever the sensor
transmits an RF signal to the receiver.
select sensor or use auto scan

• Press CHANNEL to switch between
sensors 1-3.
• To auto-scan between sensors, press and hold
CHANNEL for 2 seconds. Each sensor's data
will be displayed for 3 seconds. To end autoscan,
• Press and hold CHANNEL and MEMORY
simultaneously to search for remote sensors.
resetting the system
The RESET buttons are located on the back of the
main unit and sensor. Use a pointed subject to
press RESET when you change the batteries and
whenever the system malfunctions.

SOURCE: model 00754W4 does not sense outside batteries have been placed correctly in both inside and outside units..noW what do I do?

We would recommend a reset of your unit. Please verify that you are using good-quality, standard alkaline batteries such as Energizer or Rayovac, then follow the steps below.
1. Bring both the sensor and display unit indoors and remove at least one battery from each.
2. Make sure the A-B-C switch on both units match. Sometimes changing to a different channel can help.
3. Reinstall the battery in the outdoor sensor.

4. Reinstall the battery in the display unit.
5. Let the units sit within a couple feet of each other for about 20 minutes to gain a strong connection.

I am getting no outside temperature readings on my Watson W-8386 I have changed the batteries on the transponder.

Try removing all batteries, then installing batteries in outside unit and allowing it to initialize and begin sending temperature data. Install batteries in the inside unit and you should see the outside temperature displayed. If not, the outside unit may be defective.

Changed batteries and the outside temperature still does not show

Bring the outside sensor inside. Take the batteries out of the sensor and out of the main unit. Wait 10 minutes. Put the batteries back in the remote sensor. Put the batteries back in the main unit. Do not touch any of the buttons. Wait 10 minutes. If the remote temperature is not showing within 10 minutes, try again. Once the remote temperature is showing, you can set the clock.

My acu-rite wireless thermometer model #00604RX isn't capturing the wireless sensor signal..both have new batteries and worked before changing old battery..reset the buttons

Double check the batteries and the direction in which they are installed. If there is one backwards in the sending unit that is outside, it will not send a signal. Also, there is typically one battery in the indoor unit that is responsible for receiving the signal from the outdoor unit. If all of the batteries are in correctly except that battery, you will see the display, but will not get the data transmitted from the outside sending unit.

The weather Forecast Icons don't change on my honeywell weather station model # TE852W


This problem could arise due to various reasons
1)Replace the batteries in remote sensors
When the batteries are properly installed, the remote weather sensor will resume sending signals to the main unit.To enforce an immediate remote signals search, press and hold
DOWN on the main unit.

2)Remote thermo-hygrometer sensor could be weak in sending the signal about weather Forecast.Test it properly.

3)Reset the unit and check

post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

Outside temp does not read new batterys in both inside & outside unit

Double check the batteries to make sure they are installed correctly. If one of the batteries in the outdoor sending unit is in backwards, it will not send the outdoor data. On the indoor unit, there is typically one battery that is used for receiving the signal from the outdoor unit. If all of the batteries are in correctly but that one, you will see the display and the indoor temperature information, but the outdoor information will not be displayed.

Outside unit not registering temp and humidity to base unit

Uniden EWCI936
To get the outside temperature working again, open the outdoor sensor box carefully loosening the one screw with a screwdriver, insert 3 brand new AA batteries, check phone for outside temperature. If not showing on the phone display, try changing the 'channel' setting, just above the batteries. Be careful not to break the tiny switch. Gently use a smaller flathead screwdriver, if needed. There are 3 settings. Mine worked fine on the first setting. If it is showing on the phone set screens, then, carefully screw the lid back on to the sensor box, and re-insert into the sensor wall holder. I keep mine in a plastic bag on a shelf outside, away from sun, so I can get a true reading day or night. It is always a bit warmer in the sunlight than the true outdoor air temperature. Enjoy
