Radio Shack Wireless Weather Forecaster - Answered Questions & Fixed issues
Can I replace the sensor for a Radio Shack 63-1090?
I presume by sensor you mean the remote sensor not the main unit which also has sensors? When you buy the 1090 you get one external/remote sensor which is also labeled 1090. If you buy extra sensors they are 1092's. Another new 1092 sensor should work with your 1090 it does on mine. You can have up to 3 remotes just set the channel on them. Getting one is the problem. If your talking of stripping the box down to replace the sensor , well I am sure more than the sensor would have a fault!

Is there any way to change the battery on a Trumeter 5505E measuring whee
5505E MEASUREMETER BATTERY CHANGE (3V CR-2032)
REMOVE WHEEL AND SHAFT BY GENTLY PULLING AXLE OUT OF UNIT.
DRILL OUT 7 PLASTIC HEADS WITH 3/16 DRILL BIT. (ABOUT 1\8 DEPTH)
SPLIT TWO SIDES OF CASE AND REMOVE HANDLE.
SLIDE OUT CLEAR PLASTIC CONTROL UNIT. PUSH DOWN ON BUTTONS AS YOU REMOVE SO AS NOT TO DAMAGE THEM.
PUSH DOWN SLIGHTLY TOWARD THE CASE ON LOCK TABS WHILE GENTLY PULLING CASE APART. START ON ONE END AND WORK YOUR WAY TO OTHER END. KEEP GASKET INTACT. OPEN CASE.
THERE IS A "Y" SHAPED RETAINER HOLDING IN THE BATTERY. WITH NEEDLE NOSE PLIERS, CAREFULLY SLIGHTLY SQUEEZE THE BOTTOM OF THE "Y" AND PULL UP GENTLY. YOU CAN NOW REMOVE THE BATTERY AND INSTALL THE NEW ONE. PUSH RETAINER DOWN TO LOCK BACK IN.
MAKE SURE GASKET IS IN PLACE AND PUT CASE BACK TOGETHER, MAKING SURE WHEEL ADAPTER IS IN PROPER PLACE. TURN ON AND TEST CONTROL UNIT AND TURN WHEEL ADAPTER TO MAKE SURE UNIT IS WORKING PROPERLY.
SLIDE CONTROL UNIT BACK IN BEING CAREFUL OF THE BUTTONS. RE-ASSEMBLE HANDLE AND PUT THE TWO SIDES OF THE CASE TOGETHER. I USED THREE PIECES OF ELECTRICAL TAPE TO HOLD CASE TOGETHER. ONE ON THE TOP BETWEEN THE TWO HOLES, ONE ON THE BOTTOM JUST ABOVE THE DISPLAY, AND ONE IN THE MIDDLE.
PUT THE PLASTIC PIECE IN THE HOLE AND LINE UP. MAKE SURE BOTH O-RINGS ARE ON THE AXLE SHAFT. GENTLY INSERT AXLE ALL THE WAY IN WHILE ROTATING IF NECESSARY.
I WAS SO HAPPY I HAD IT ALL BACK TOGETHER AND WORKING, I HADN'T TAKEN ANY PICTURES AND I DIDN'T FEEL LIKE TAKING IT ALL APART AGAIN. MIGHT ADD PICTURES LATER IF NEEDED. I HAD BEEN LOOKING FOR YEARS ON HOW TO CHANGE THE BATTERY, AND I FINALLY MADE UP MY MIND THAT I WAS GOING TO DO IT.

Acr 2000 ac machine will not leave initializing
You can try the following: 1# Check the main power cable & make sure it has 110V (Do not run the machine with long extension cable).2# Check all harness connection.3# Check keyboard cable connection on back of control board.4# If all the cable connection is good then you may need to replace the control board.
