    We have a La Crosse Indoor, Outdoor, Moon, date and day radio controlled atomic clock. The weather display has never worked properly for any length of time and we are fed up with this clock. I have reported this to your tech support and have detailed instructions from Nicole on how to put the batteries in the transmitter first,press the set button 15-20 times, what batteries to use, how to set them apart for 15 minutes... I have had it. Nothing works. Also I do not understand how to change the day; what does U5 mean? This clock has given me nothing but grief.

New la crosse technology wind speed weather station model # CA87092 set up.wind speed and outdoor temperature showed until this batteries used yesterday in setup. what is the problem?

The instructions for your station call for a specific set up procedure. Batteries should be installed in the transmitter first with time allowed for it to initialize and begin sending data. After installing batteries in the receiver, you should see wind speed and temperature displayed. BUT, here in the real world I have a Lacrosse receiver currently displaying a balmy 67 degrees inside and a not-so-balmy - - outside. I believe the alkaline batteries used in the transmitter lose efficiency or freeze at low temperatures. Warmer weather restores the outside temperature display.

Why is indoor display not showing outside temperatures?

If the condition comes and goes, the outside unit may be exposed to extreme temperatures or the batteries may be too weak. If the condition occurred after battery replacement, remove all batteries then reinstall the outside battery and wait for it to "initialize" and begin sending data. ReInstall the inside battery and you should see the outside temperature displayed.

Outside temp

Remove all batteries. Reinstall batteries (or new ones) in the outside unit. Install batteries in the console. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING! Wait until the outside temperature displays on the console. Make any adjustments necessary.

I cannot get the outside temperature to show on the inside monitor

Try the usual fix by removing batteries and reinstalling/replacing batteries starting with the outside unit. Wait for as long as 10 minutes for the ouside temperature to be displayed on the indoor unit. If nothing happens after 10 minutes, the outside unit may have failed.

Outside temperature sensor not working

You probably need to replace the batteries. Be sure to follow the LaCrosse instructions exactly to get your Weather Forecaster working properly again

Why is the outside temperature not displaying on the base?

After a battery replacement, the outside and inside units have to "talk" to each other before you can get a display. Also, the outside unit's batteries have to be replaced first. You should not press any buttons for 10 minutes until the two units have finished "talking"

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.
