Bring outside temp sensor indoors. Remove batteries from both remote and base. replace outside first with fresh batteries (Alkaline recommended). Then the base. Make sure they are on the same channel. When display restored, you can take the remote back outside.

SOURCE: outside temp on skycam atomic clock

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.

SOURCE: I have a skyscan atomic

This is a very common problem that is most frequently caused by the outdoor transmitter going bad. They are surprisingly delicate and don't like getting wet.

You can order replacement transmitters from http://skyscan.info/content/

They only cost $11 and that includes shipping and handling.

SOURCE: Wireless thermo clock not reading outside temp

I've had a similar problem with another model, an Oregon Scientific Model IWA-80055 Wireless Thermo Clock, in which when I replaced the batteries in the remote sensor, the clock would not read the temperature from the remote sensor.
I found it fairly consistent to solve this by taking a battery out of place in the clock and putting it back in.  Unfortunately this also messed up the clock's time and date.  This is also in the instructions catalogue for the device, check and see if yours gives a similar solution.

1. Hold down WAVE/SET for about 2 seconds to enter the setting mode.

7. Press WAVE/SET to confirm the date and enter time setting mode.

8. The time digits blink, press + or - to select the time.

9. Press WAVE/SET to confirm time setting and enter the clock and temperature setting.

10. The time format and temperature blink. Press + to select between 12Hr and 24Hr format. Press - to select between Celsius and Fahrenheit.

11. Press WAVE/SET to confirm whole setting.

SIGNAL: To aquire the signal for the first time, place the clock near a window facing Fort Collins, CO. If it fails, it will try again every 3 hours.

I hope this helps. I work for radioshack and i had a few extra minutes while at work.

SOURCE: my clock is nort showing up the outside tempertute

Seems to be a consistent problem with Skyscan. I have the 88800 model and my outdoor transmitter isn't transmitting the temperature either. We've replaced the batteries in both the transmitter and clock and nothing for outdoor temp. It's only been used for 9 months.

How do i get the outside temp. to work


If you have a outside sensor add betteries.Wait for it to connect to the base. You may have to "reboot" ,remove batteries from base and outside temp sensor and replace both, Patiently WAIT I have a similar device and once a year I replace the batteries It takes a while for the devices to re-connect and set , the atomic clock as well. That said, How far is the Temp Sensor from the base unit? I set my outside sensor near the base to connect and move it on th outside porch (30' away) out of the direct sun and rain. I not sure if this is necessary but that the way I reset them.

After changing batteries in both the outside sensor and the inside clock I no longer receive a reading for outside temp.


I have a thermometer with an outside sensor. It's necessary to remove both batteries, wait a few minutes, then replace batteries - sensor first. It may take a few minutes for the inside clock to pick up the signal. If it doesn't, try again with new batteries.

My oregon scientific indoor outdoor weather station with atomic clock just stopped picking up the outdoor readings, it won't switch to that channel any longer. tried removing and reinstalling the battery,...


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.

The outside temp sender won't work. We put new batteries in it, but it does not send a signal. It will not put an outside temp on the clock.


Simple, the instructions state that when changing the batteries on the outside temp. sensor, you must also change the batteries on the main clock unit. I had same problem when I changed the sensor batteries until I pulled the batteries from the clock and it reset fine. ( Sensor batteries first, then clock batteries. ) The clock will reset to atomic time overnight so don't worry if it doesn't read correctly at first.

I have no outside temp. reading on my clock.


Remove batteries from the clock and the outside temperature transmitter. Put the clock and the transmitter next to each other, then install the batteries in both units. This should fix it. If not, you have a bad tempurature sending unit, or a dead battery in the sending unit.
