My weather station is no longer recieving an outdoor temperature reading. The barometer is working fine, as is the indoor base station. Both were given new batteries at the same time, and the set up instructions were followed perfectly. When these didn't work, I rest and started again, but to no avail.

Hi,


does the outside humidity working ?

if yes - the outside station is transmitting but the temperature sensor is faulty,
if no sensing is available from the outside station, it look like the outside station is faulty . (this is common because of extreme weather change.
notice that the pressure sense is done in the base station.
regards ,
Daniel

SOURCE: i put new batteries into both units, the indoor

I'm having the same problem and can't find an answer. Seems this also happened with another model we had - planned obsolescence? It was working fine, flashing due to low battery. Now, nothing from outside. Annoying.

You must move the remote sensor close to the base unit to reset it and it will work fine. After it shows the temp then you can move it back to its location. thanks for asking at Fixya.com.

SOURCE: Need set up manual for The Weather Channel indoor

The manual for the thermometer is available on the LaCrosse site: http://www.lacrossetechnology.com/7034twcit/index.php . The direct link is http://www.lacrossetechnology.com/7034twcit/manual.pdf .

Put the batteries in the remote(s) first. (If you need to reset the units, pull the batteries from the indoor temperature sensor and the remotes for 10 minutes before restarting.) With the remotes and indoor sensor 3 to 5 feet apart, put the batteries in the indoor temperature sensor. Then wait 10 minutes before pressing any buttons. Once you have confirmed communication between the units, then move the remotes to their final location (not more than 330 feet away minus 30 feet for external walls or windows and 20 feet for each internal wall between the units.)

I hope this helps.

Hi Walter,

I found this in the manual, simply pressing the RESET button won't start communication again. Try this:

Your main unit displays current, minimum, and
maximum temperature and humidity readings
collected by the remote sensor and main unit.
Outdoor data is collected and displayed every
40 seconds and indoor data is collected and
displayed every 10 seconds.

The red LED flashes whenever the sensor
transmits an RF signal to the receiver.
select sensor or use auto scan

• Press CHANNEL to switch between
sensors 1-3.
• To auto-scan between sensors, press and hold
CHANNEL for 2 seconds. Each sensor's data
will be displayed for 3 seconds. To end autoscan,
press CHANNEL or MEMORY.
• Press and hold CHANNEL and MEMORY
simultaneously to search for remote sensors.
resetting the system
The RESET buttons are located on the back of the
main unit and sensor. Use a pointed subject to
press RESET when you change the batteries and
whenever the system malfunctions.

I have an Acurite weather station, model 02080, and when I place the lightning sensor outdoors as it states in setup, outdoor temp is indicated. How do I set it up to work properly?

The display has the internal sensor for temp and barometer, The 5 in one has the sensor for outdoors and shows temp, wind speed and direction, humidity and rain. With the added lightning detector having the additional temp sensor in it, the system is redundant. It is recommended to put the sensor outside for best results that t have the least interference and maximum range..

Why can't I receive input from the outside sending unit?

Make sure that all the batteries are good!!
This procedure outlines the typical process to pair the sensor and base.
Base Station Battery Installation

·Remove the printed vinyl label from the LCD screen of the base station
·Position the remote sensor near the base station
·Open the battery compartment at the back of the base station and insert (2) AA batteries according to the polarity markings. Replace the battery compartment cover.
·Within a short time the RF signal icon (located to the left of the outdoor temperature channel indicator) will start flashing. This indicates that the base station is ready to pick up the RF outdoor temperature signal from the remote sensor. It will continue to flash for 3 minutes or until the signal from the remote sensor is detected.

Register the Remote Sensor
·Open the battery compartment at the back of the remote sensor and slide the channel selector switch to your desired channel. For the first remote you may select any channel, for additional remotes select any unused channel
·Insert (2) AAA batteries according to the polarity markings. Be sure to install the batteries in the remote within the time that the RF signal icon is flashing on the base station. 1541 WeatherGuide Wireless Weather Forecaster with Barometer

Outdoor temperature on indoor station showing - -.

Check the battery in the outdoor unit, resync them per the instructions, if that does not work check for interference.

What does an OF symbol mean in the indoor temp window with no readings from the outside?

Based on a different, but similar, LaCrosse model (the WS-8611), it would appear to be an OverFlow indication, meaning that it's out of range. Here's a quote from that unit's manual:

SPECIFICATIONS:
Temperature measuring range:
Indoor : 14.2F to +139.8F with 0.2F resolution
(-9.9C to +59.9C with 0.1C resolution)
("OF.L" displayed if outside this range)
Outdoor : -39.8F to +139.8F with 0.2F resolution
(-39.9C to +59.9C with 0.1C resolution
("OF.L" displayed if outside this range)

It is likely that their convention remains the same across models, but I don't work for them, so I can't guarantee it.

You must remove the batteries in the base unit, replace them, and it should work properly. You can press the Tx button on the back of the remote unit to verify the RF reception. To ensure it is working properly, place both units next to each other indoors and make sure they read the same temperature.
The manual can be found here. Refer to page 3 for more information.

I had the same problem, Since the outside temp wouldn't read, I figured it was the outside unit batteries. Went through half a dozen AAA batteries and wouldn't read. It was the indoor unit. Had the same bats I installed 3 years ago. DUH! Replaced the AAA, and all was well. When the inside batteries die out, it has just enough juice to read indoor temp, but not enought to sense exterior signal.
