SOURCE: lost time display

The electrolytic cap responsible for hold the information locked in the eprom has most likely failed or is reading so high an equivelent series resistance as to be useless. That, and probably several others need to be changed out. Radial caps in a circuit, commonly referred to as lytics, act like a battery storing up electricity and dispensing it at a proper rate in their given circuit. After time the oil like fluid in them begins to deteriorate and the lytic breaks down becoming less able to function. Some simply open and this circuit collapses. But others, like the problem you have here, slowly die off and are not able to dispense voltage at a rate necessary to keep the charge across the gate of the IC storing the info you just programmed into it.. So, in laymen's terms it needs to go to the shop and have a few caps tested... Not an expensive proposition so I'd clearly recommend having it repaired. To do this yourself you would need at a minumum an ESR meter, which is more expensive than the repair will cost you... Hope this helps. Bill

SOURCE: Set the clock

You are in luck. I had to replace the batteries in my DWS-150 & couldn't find the instruction manual to reset the time. Fortunately, I remembered a while back I had the same situation & thought I might have downloaded the manual - while it was still available. Ifound I have it saved as a pdf file on my pc. Here are some excerpts: About the Atomic Clock The National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) in Fort Collins,
Colorado broadcasts the time signal (WWVB at 60kHz AM radio signal) with
an accuracy of 1 second per every 3,000 years. The signal will cover a
distance up to 2,000 miles from the source. Like a typical AM radio, your
Atomic Clock will not able to receive the WWVB signal in places
surrounded by heavy concrete or metal panels. The reception of the time
signal can be affected by mobile phones, TV, electrical appliances or other
electronic interference. To get the best performance of the Atomic clock,
please install the home receiver near a window and away from large metallic
objects. If the unit is not working properly, change the unit position. There
may be some interference at this location.

SETTING TIME
RADIO-CONTROLLED CLOCK
The home receiver will start synchronizing the clock after the 1st channel of
the RF thermometer is registered.
1. At normal mode, hold the “ - ” button located on the back of the home
receiver for 3 seconds to force synchronization.
2. The antenna icon will appear during the synchronization process (on the
right side of the time display).
3. If the icon disappears afterwards, radio time signal is not available at that
moment. Try setting the home receiver in other locations. Remember to
place the unit away from sources of interference such as mobile phones,
appliances, TV etc.
4. Antenna icon will appear on screen if the radio time reception is
successful. The radio-controlled clock will have a daily synchronization at 1:00 am everyday. If previous attempts of reception were
unsuccessful, the home receiver will attempt synchronization
each hour until successful.
5. Each reception cycle is minimum 2 minutes and maximum 10 minutes.
TIME ZONE SELECTION
Press “ - ” button on back of home receiver to select from the following time
zones in the U.S. (zone is displayed in the upper right hand corner of time
display).
P - Pacific Standard Time M - Mountain Standard Time
C - Central Standard Time E - Eastern Standard Time
MANUAL SETTING FOR CLOCK & CALENDAR
1. Hold “SET ” button for 3 seconds to enter clock set.
2. First, select 12 hour or 24 hour setting using the “ + , - ” buttons located
on the back of the home receiver. Press “ SET ” button to confirm.
3. Select Hour - Use the “ + , - ” buttons located on the back of the home
receiver to adjust hour setting. Press “ SET ” button to confirm.
4. Select Minute - Use the “ + , - ” buttons located on the back of the
home receiver to adjust minute setting. Press “ SET ” button to confirm.
5. DST On/Off (Daylight Savings Time) - Use the “ + , - ” buttons to turn
DST on or off. Press “ SET ” button to confirm.
Now you will select the calendar settings-
6. Select Year - Use the “ + , - ” buttons located on the back of the home
receiver to adjust year setting. Press “ SET ” button to confirm.
7. Select Month - Use the “ + , - ” buttons located on the back of the
home receiver to adjust month setting. Press “ SET ” button to confirm.
8. Select Day - Use the “ + , - ” buttons located on the back of the home
receiver to adjust day setting. Press “ SET ” button to confirm.
9. Select Fahrenheit/Centigrade Temperature Readings - Use the
+ , - “ buttons located on the back of the home receiver to toggle

Replaced batteries in both transmitter then w/station. Latter then started clicking & all items on screen flash on and off with the "clicking". Nothing functions or can be programmed.


Try putting the batteries in the weather station first and then the sender units.

Let me know make and model and I'll see if I can find a manual.

Will not transmit outdoor info. Batteries good- LED lights. Monitor shows indoor temp only.


There are a couple of possibilities for the failure to transmit/receive outdoor data. First, resynch the two units. This will depend on the manufacturer. For some brands, you need to take the batteries out of both the indoor and outdoor units for 10 minutes. Then put the batteries into the devices with both side by side (working inside is easier). Wait until the outdoor data is displayed. There are some weather station systems where the outdoor unit isn't weather-proof. You may need to dry the outdoor unit for several days after removing the batteries before resynching it to indoor sensor.

If the data displays properly when the outdoor unit is inside, you may have the outdoor sensor too far away from the indoor unit. (The distance will depend on the number of walls and the composition of the wall studs/siding.) Try keeping the two units closer together.

If the outdoor data isn't displayed when the two units are side by side and the reset procedure doesn't work. One device has an internal malfunction (transmitter or receiver failed). It's probably best to replace the unit. If it is under warranty, contact the manufacturer.

I hope this helps. For specific details on resetting the indoor and outdoor units to synch them, please add a comment with the make/model of your weather station.

I need a manual for the 00593W weather station. Please?


Push and hold the "-" button on the main unit until "P" displays on the screen. You'll now set the time zone so the system can automatically set the clock. The screen will begin cycling between the time zones. Push the "Set" button when the correct time zone appears.

How do i set time zone on sharp weather station pcs775


On the SPC595, there were no specific instructions to set time zone, either (default was Pacific, I'm in Eastern), so I'm hoping that what worked on this will work on your unit:

Try hitting the "UP arrow" when the clock is NOT in a setting mode. This is not referenced in any "setting time" area but rather the area of the instructions that tells you what each button does. My manual (if you can call it that) says the following:

"UP Button
In setting mode, press it to increase the setting value. Press it to switch the time zone P/M/C/E"

The sensor from my weather station is not registering outside temperature


I've had the same problem since I bought this unit 2+ years ago; when the outside temperature moves into the freezing zone, the sensor stops transmitting. I contacted Lacrosse-- all they could suggest was change the batteries. My solution: throw it in the trash!

Cannot get the weather station model ws-916ou-it to show outside temperature


I have three of these WS-916OU-IT units. After a few years, the outside sensor just fails. You will get dashes and a "TR" low battery signal, even if the batteries are good
just buy another whole weather station (short money) and set both the old and new weather station unit to receive from the single new outdoor sensor.
To do this - just follow the procedure for a single sensor - that is - put the batteries in the new sensor - then within 30 seconds - put the batteries in all the weather stations - they will all pick up the same outdoor sensor.
I now have three units running off of one outdoor sensor.
Seems a bit silly, but it works.

Setting the time zone


I actually have the same problem with an older model Brookstone weather station with remote temperature gauge. The time/date settings do not allow you to set time zone and eventually the clock syncs to PST.... ANY HELP HERE?
