Question about SkyScan 86742 Digital Atomic Wall Clock
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.

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!
