Hello. Chances are that the battery contacts in the outdoor unit are corroded due to exposure to moisture. Do this. Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts in the device using the eraser end of a common pencil. Then reinsert the batteries. If that doesn't do it, go to any auto parts store and get a can of electrical contact cleaning spray and repeat the above steps. J.

Remove all batteries. Install batteries in outside unit and allow time for it to begin sending temperature. Install batteries in inside unit. You should see outside temperature displayed. If not, the outside unit could be defective.

I am getting no outside temperature readings on my Watson W-8386 I have changed the batteries on the transponder.

Try removing all batteries, then installing batteries in outside unit and allowing it to initialize and begin sending temperature data. Install batteries in the inside unit and you should see the outside temperature displayed. If not, the outside unit may be defective.

Why is my outside temp not registering. I have replaced the batteries

  • Remove all batteries
  • Install outside batteries
  • Move from outside to inside at a casual pace to allow time for outside unit to begin sending temperature
  • Install inside batteries. You should see outside temperature displayed
I find that outside temperature display comes and goes depending upon the weather, e.g., Today at 12 pm, the outside temperature is 35 deg F; earlier this morning it was - -. For the last couple of days, the temperature has been - - then suddenly last night it was 28 deg F.

Rebel xsi review time doesn't show

Let the camera in the zip bag reach the same cold temperature outside before you take a picture. You may need to warm the battery in your hands/pocket for the battery to operating temperature.
After you have taken your photos, place the camera back in the zip bag so when you return inside a warm house you won't get condensation on the camera/lens. You need to let the camera reach room temperature before you take photos inside the house.

Outdoor device won't register inside.

All these wireless weather station devices have to be paired to the base unit whenever the batteries are changed in any of the remotes. It's a poor design issue, but there is no way around it, due to the nature of wireless operation.

Place both units near each other and look on the back of your base and remote sensor units, you should find a reset button (or a small hole). Either press the button or use the end of a paper clip to depress and hold the reset on each unit; Base 1st, then the remote 2nd.

After a brief moment, the remote should register with the base and you'll be back getting wireless readings.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

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.
