Question about Homedics Sound Spa Premier SS-5000 Clock Radio

2 Answers

Remote Sensor We are not able to get the outside temperature to display on the system.  The remote sensor does not show any temperature outside - it sometimes would display the temperature when the sensor was inside the house, but it doesn't show up on the clock.  We have tried changing the batteries (three different sets of batteries) and it still doesn't work. Any suggestions?

Re: Remote Sensor

Make sure your time is set and the atomic clock time is recieved, then leaving the rear cover off of the transmitter, push the "tx" button not the "c/f" that is just for centegrade or ferenhight. you will see the red light on the front of reciever flash in a few seconds. The temp should display on your clock screen. If not, did the red l.e.d. light on transmitter flash. If not, its not sending data to clock. I have to reset and hit transmit every time I replace batteries on transmitter. Had no problems for over 2 years of using outside. If your not getting a reading with transmitter sitting next to clock after hitting "tx" button you may have defective transmitter.

Re: Remote Sensor

LL.L means the temperature is beyond the lower boundary. I have 2 units and one is reporting 54.9, while the other is LL.L. I assume it is a bad transmitter. BTW - VERY hard to find this info. O.S. doesn't have much of a support site.

Remote sensor HMDX alarm clock with outside temperature not registering outside temperature

Is the remote very far from the clock? I find that some of these remotes don't have very good range. Try bringing the remote close to the clock to see if you can get them to connect. Some of these type remotes have a reset button or an opening that you can push a paper clip into to reset. I usually try to find a location close enough to the unit so it will connect by still try to keep it out of the weather. I also included a link to the instructions:

Remote signal not received by Shift 3 projection alarm clock

1) Does the remote have batteries? See other posts that describe how to do this (4 screws in back need to be removed). Temperature should be displayed in small window of the sending unit if it's working.
2) Hold Channel button for 3 seconds until it beeps - the unit then searches for a signal.

Shift 3 projection alarm clock cannot connect with the remote

Did you put two AAA batteries in the remote? Use a small phillips to take the cover off of it. Then hold channel on the main unit for three seconds to synch it with the remote.

Where to put outside remote

If you have storm windows, put it between the window and the storm window.

Or try just below the overhang of your house.

Shift 3 Projection Alarm clock remote cannot open

Once the batteries are installed in the remote the temp will appear in the LED screen. Now you are ready to link signals between the main unit and the remote. Simply remove one of the two triple A batteries from the main unit and then replace. You should then see what appears to be a flashing object shaped like a kite with a tail while the two units link up. Then you should see the temp reading at the remote appear in the LED readout at the main unit. By the way there is also a very small reset at the top of the switches on the back of the main unit that can be depressed with a SMALL pointed object like a scissor point or safety pin point.

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.

Remote Weather Station shows "HHH"

This means that the read is over the HIGH limit of the sensor, perhaps is too hot there. Change it to another location. josemaX
