Maybe just a typo, but you know it requires 4 (not 3) AAA batteries. The holder swivels to the side to expose a 4th battery slot that is sort of hidden under the others. Put a volt meter on the 2 tiny contacts to the right of the batteries. Make sure you get very close to 6 volts.

Please check the following website for all the info and faq.


If you have lost the outside temperature on the clock display after replacing the transmitter battery then do the following:

1. Make sure you have good batteries installed in the remote transmitter
2. Remove the batteries from the main clock and keep them out until the clock display disappers.
3. Re-install the batteries in the clock.
4. Wait until the display returns and includes the outside temperature display as well.
5. Set the clock again for current time/date etc.
6. Bingo. You are in business.

SOURCE: Outside temperature not working on

hello lucy... you most likely have some corrosion in the outdoor component. Remove the batteries from the outdoor component and clean the battery contacts with the eraser end of a common pencil. Reinstall the batteries and then give it up to 8 hours to start reporting accurately again. Joe

After inserting the batteries, DO NOT set the time until the OUTSIDE temperature registers. That's the trick.

No outside temp in de display only - - -in thedisplay i see the room temp. No outside temp. I have checked the outside transmitter end i see the red flash.

my unit tells me to insert fresh batteries into the outside sending unit first. then insert new batteries into the inside receiving unit. after the outside temperature shows up, then can reset my inside unit's time, choose F or C and
switch channels. please try changing channels if your
outside temp doesn't show. you can do both units in the house then put one outside after they work properly.

Model No. JSJS-204 Doorbell draining batteries fast! About 4 months old. Now on 3rd set of batteries.

It might be your batteries. Are you using Lithium or regular batteries? Often the cheaper batteries will go down FAST!

Consider investing in a new doorbell, or buying a rechargeable battery pack so you're not continuing to replace the batteries but simply recharge them - usually overnight. Battery chargers can be expensive, so try to buy one that charges a varity of the kinds of batteries you use most often.

  • Other "fixes" with doorbells include checking to ensure the batteries are properly seated - ie. press the spring down and make sure the batteries aren't grounding out on another part of the case.
  • Is the temperature in your area cold? Cold will sap a battery FAST - and that's everything from car batteries to flashlight, doorbell, anything that depends on any size of battery.
  • Do you have kids who play with the doorbell? Frequent use will kill the batteries.
  • Do you have a battery level checker to make sure the "fresh" batteries you're putting in are really fresh? Here's a $7.95 battery checker from Amazon. Many packages of batteries also come with checker built into the cardboard container (free!) as well.

Remote not working

Alkaline batteries will not work below freezing in the outside temperature sensor. Buy Lithium batteries for the outside sensor unit alkaline are okay for the inside unit.

Model 00822A2. Why doesn't inside unit show outside temperature?

If you tried removing and replacing batteries, you should bear in mind that all batteries should be removed to "reset" the station then batteries should be installed in the outside sender first and time allowed for it to begin transmitting temperature. Next, batteries should be installed in the receiver and you should begin to read outside temperature.

Open your hood and look for the fuse and relay center just above the battery . open the cover and look for a fuse called IOD usually towards the top of the block , they are labeled . Remove the IOD fuse for 20 seconds and then reinsert . The BCM becomes hung and this will reset it in a lot of cases . Let us know how it works out Tim

How long the lithium batteries last for Conair Model WW60X?

Lithium batteries should last about 3-5 years. That really depends on the amount of use, the way the unit is stored and even things like temperatures. If you replace the battery you need to make sure that the battery is fresh and not old stock. Thats another thing that will cause premature battery death is old stale batteries. Unfortunately the original batteries tend to fall into two types, better than you can find or a lot worse. If you are using the scale a lot ie several people using it then the batteries will also drop off pretty quick. Even in heavy commercial use the batteries should be good for well over a year.

Can you recommend a battery which doesnt drain within 24 hours

The best batteries on the market are the Energizer Lithium AA cells. There are 2 types, but the Ultimate Lithium are the top drawer batteries. A bit pricey, but because they last so long, you really do save money (and frustration) in the long run.

Pentax K100D will not power up

First make sure you are using fresh lithium batteries. These cameras indicate low batteries quite early on. Rechargeables even when freshly charged are marginal.

If the problem persists remove the batteries. Set the camera switch to the off position. Set the focus switch to manual. Wait at least a minute. Then replace the batteries and switch on again.

Operating with low batteries can confuse the firmware and it may be stuck in a low-battery loop. If this is the case this should reset the camera by allowing the electronics to power-down completely.

If this does not work you wiil have to contact pentax support.
