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.

I believe the back of the sensor slides open. There may be a faint arrow on the back that indicates the direction in which you push.
My unit took well over 24 hrs to reset. I think it has to do with the position of the satellite in relation to where you live.

Google search: "(product) manual"
Read this procedure to possibly fix the remote:
They also sell replacement remotes.
Or look on eBay, usually much cheaper if available.

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.
