Question about SkyScan 86742 Digital Atomic Wall Clock

Open Question

Out side temperature reading

Lost outside temperature reading. Removed batteries from clock and outside sensor and waited 30 min. When batteries were installed temperature and clock functioned properly. However we keep losing the outside reading.We repeated the sequence and always get the same results. What am I doing wrong My outdoor transmitter started reading 100+ degrees......I check the batteries - almost dead....replaced them per the procedure...same problem...there is a tuning capacitor inside that I think changes the 433mhz frequency, that will allow to "calibrate" the thermistor so that the correct temperature can be displayed...it does indeed change the reading, but it never changes the reading, like when I 'warm' it up. Anyone have some ideas? TY - RepoMan :^)|

SOURCE: Out side temperature reading

Without having parts to try, this would be difficult to know what the fault is. Inside this unit there is a circuit board, and on the outside there is the exernal temperature sensor.

There are only a few things that can go wrong. There is not much that is servicable unless you can find a spare board, or a spare temperture probe. There is very little posiblity that in any practicality this unit can be serviced at the component level.

I would just go out and buy a new unit.

SOURCE: Sio/Scan Temperature Transmitter 433MHz for batteries

I just changed the batteries yesterday. It was hard to open the battery compartment with bare hands/finders. I used flat screw driver to poke into the notch in the center of the transmitter. Or you can try poke into any **** around the compartment. It works!

I have eight atomic clocks,none of them have the outside temperature working,all have new batteries???


If your outside temperature is not showing on your clock, that may mean that the clock and the transmitter have lost their connection. To reconnect them you must first take the batteries out of both of the units for 15 minutes. First put the batteries back into the transmitter, and then the clock. Let them sit side by side inside your home. When both the indoor and outdoor temperatures show on your clock with the same reading, or within two degrees of each other, then you may put your transmitter back outside. Remember to keep the transmitter out of the direct sun in a dry place. Also keep it away from metal, which can affect the readings.

Changed batteries and the outside temperature still does not show


Bring the outside sensor inside. Take the batteries out of the sensor and out of the main unit. Wait 10 minutes. Put the batteries back in the remote sensor. Put the batteries back in the main unit. Do not touch any of the buttons. Wait 10 minutes. If the remote temperature is not showing within 10 minutes, try again. Once the remote temperature is showing, you can set the clock.

After changing batteries in both the outside sensor and the inside clock I no longer receive a reading for outside temp.


I have a thermometer with an outside sensor. It's necessary to remove both batteries, wait a few minutes, then replace batteries - sensor first. It may take a few minutes for the inside clock to pick up the signal. If it doesn't, try again with new batteries.

Thermo clock RAR312 not picking up outdoor transmitter temperature. Replaced battery but still nothing.


take a paper clip and reset the reset button located in the battery compartment. Then, try each of the 3 channels until you get a reading in the outside temp field. Wait a good couple of minutes at each channel setting before determining the units are not pairing. Do this with the units side by side for signal acquisition, then once acquired, move the remote sensor outdoors. Hope this helps!

Outside temp on skycam atomic clock


Try changing the battereis in the CLOCK. When the batteries in the clock start getting low, the clock does not pick up the outside transmitter.
