    After 2 or 3 years of working properly I now cannot get an outdoor temperature to register. I've tried every possible combination of battery in/out reset on/off etc. I've tried brand new batteries and still no connecting signal. It seems like the outdoor transmitter is broken.

    Is this likely and can it be replaced? I probably have to buy a complete new system?

    Thanks for any assistance!

I had the same problem and finally found my manual. Here's what to do, everyone!

1. Take back panel off the sending unit, where the three batteries are, by unscrewing the 4 phillips head screws (assuming you, like I, had put the screws back in after installing new batteries). You will see a little gray button in a hole above where the batteries are; the little button is one you can push down with the same phillips screwdriver you took the 4 screws out with - don't do this yet.

2. Now, hold down the "channel" button on front of receiver panel for 2 sec, until the dash in the "ch" box and the place where the temp is supposed to be starts blinking.

3. Now, while these indicia are blinking on the panel, push the little gray button down and hold it for 2 seconds. This causes the transmitter to "register" with the receiver. You should now see a 1 in the "ch" box and get a temp reading.

4. Put screws back on, put receiver where you want it, proceed with rest of your life.

If your batteries die, or for some other reason you have to sync your remote with your indoor station, do this:
Once you have new batteries installed -

  1. On the indoor Weather Center press the "Channel" button - you should see the "out" channel display blink
  2. On the remote sensor, press the reset button (it's inside the battery cover on mine) for about two seconds
  3. When you release the reset button, your main Weather Center should beep when it makes the connection
  4. Viola! You've done it!
For setting other things, such as the time, press "mode" until the upper left section blinks. Then adjust up or down by using the + or - buttons on the back. Once you get that section set where you want it, press the "mode" button again to move to the next section.

If you have the Living Solutions atomic projection clock with remote temperature unit (many sold by Costco), your outdoor reading will eventually start showing a dotted line instead of the temp. Yes, you may need to replace the AAA batteries in the remote unit, but if that doesn't work, you also need to replace the AA batteries in the back of the main clock/display unit! Next, press the reset button next to the AA battery compartment, then press the reset button next to the AAA battery compartment on the remote unit, wait for the atomic clock to set the correct time, etc. and you are good to go. Unless your atomic clock doesn't find its satellites (mine never does) in which case you need to set the time manually. Start by holding down the smaller "AL" button on top of the unit until display flashes, use that button to proceed to next item, use top two side buttons to go up or down for time, year, month, date. All of the above just worked for me!

Here is what you can do.
1. inser batteries into both the remote and receiving (main) device. until you saw the digits in both displays.
2. Hold "-" key at the back of receiveing device, then you will slash flash in the "out" textfield. This state shows that receiving device is ready to receive the signal from remote device
3. press the reset button on the back of the remote device,it may take more one time. So you can press 2-3 times until you see the outdoor temperature in the main menu.
That's it. Have fun.

I found that if you take the batterys out of both units, then put the batterys in the outside sending unit first (dont push reset) then put the batterys in the main unit. it worked for me ! good luck!

What help me was to start the reset button on the main unit and then to install the batteries on the the outdoor one while it was scanning. When I just pressed the rest button of the outdoor unit as bsq2bbb wrote it didn't work. Hope it will work for you.

I have some similar devices, not sure about the type/code of the receiving unit (front only says RF-tech 433 MHz), but the back of the sensors says: Ewig Industries co ltd / Model 217S34 / 3VDC.
I have two receivers and two sensors, and the idea is to connect both sensors to each receiver so that I can read all temps at all receivers.
I lost my manual long ago, but here's what works for me when changing the batteries:
- remove all batteries
- insert batteries into receiver units
- after a few seconds, insert batteries into first sensor (-> ch 1)
- after first sensor has connected (beep from receiver(s)), insert batteries into second sensor (-> ch 2)

(identical sensors but slightly different receivers)

    This is pretty much the best way - what I found worked was to leave both units for a few minutes after removing the old batteries to allow everything to reset to default conditions. Then add one battery to tx unit, then both batteries to receiver and quickly add the second battery to the tx. Works every time - don't touch the reset buttons!

    I found how to set the date time and switch between F and C.

    1. Hold the set button for 2 seconds. hit set until what you want to set is blinking.
    2. Use the set button on the back to advance the time, date, or change the C to F.
    a. The degree measurement is hard to notice the C or F will blink and is the last one
    to be set.

What are the disadvantages of a work at home position .


I think the main problem with work-at-home jobs is the problem of staying focused on your work and not letting the home life/environment distract you from your work. The other obvious disadvantages are loss of intimate working relations with co-workers, loss of touch with society to a degree, etc.
The advantages of work-at-home, in most cases, far out weigh the dis-advantages for most people.

Sounds like you have the famous "rogue security" virus. Be sure and back up all your data before continuing.

Download and intsall this software (it's not free but but better than a tech's fee) Cost $30.00:

http://www.enigmasoftware.com/

If you cannot even get to this page, then get on a second computer and download, purchase securely and install from a CDrom or flash drive to infected computer.

Run the program, register and kill everything. Fast, easy takes 10 minutes or less.

The other way around this is to back up everything and reformat computer. Scan all documents before putting back on computer. Virus is gone. This process takes one day to complete and is free if you have the restore disk or Windows disk.

Cosmic games (Frog Frenzy 2)


Frog Frenzy 2 is a game that requires semi decent support from your graphics card, ram, and processor. Since I don't really know the specs of your computer, I cant be positive what the problem is. it could be that your computer can't support the game enough, or that you have malware on your computer.

My suggestion is that you do a virus scan to begin with, and eliminate that as a possibility. if that doesn't work then try to change the setting of the game, so that it is not so demanding on your comp. if that doesn't work than you may need to upgrade your setup.

I hope that this helped!
