Mine was doing this too. I got my can of compressed air (Ultra Duster or similar) and opened the remote transmitter a tad and sprayed the temperature sensor with it. It has worked fine ever since.

Try resetting the clock, by pressing the small button on the side of the clock, or get new batteries.

Mine too. They're very old at this point. I just started looking for an answer.

Check the channel mode that you are in. I play with the channel /memory buttons on mine and I finally get it to work. Sometimes it worksfor weeks sometimes just a day. Just glad I can get it to work - thought it was the remote unit but I was wrong.

-Press SELECT once and time number should flash.
-Press and hold SELECT and it will enter settings mode for the clock.
-At the bottom of the screen next to the moon phase you should now see PST time zone.
-UP and DOWN keys will change the time zone.
-Press SELECT and other clock settings can be changed.

I have the same unit (IWA-80055) and after not finding anything helpful on the net, I just messed with it until I got it fixed. Here's what to do:

1. Take the cover off the back of the remote sensor.

2. Set the chanel to ch.1. (I tried all three but only ch.1 worked for me).

3. Use several tools. (i.e. a stick, needle, what ever you can but you need two) and hold down the reset button on both the sensor and the clock. (at the same time.)

If done right, it should only take a few seconds to start.

The outside temp is delayed at first. Be patient.

The trick was to press the power button (the circle with a line through its top) on the very top of the device until neither NOAA by itself, nor NOAA together with that power
button icon are showing. Then press Menu until one of the alarms shows up. Then use the up or down arrows until -:-- shows; that indicates the alarm is disabled. Then
choose exit. The bell for that alarm should disappear.
It kind of makes sense that you do not want to be dealing with NOAA in any way, since the clock is totally separate. It would have been nice if the manual had explained this.
