should have had a backup copy in your computer . we know of no fix to get it back

Oregon... | Answered on Dec 13, 2019

I have the same unit (IWA-80055) and after not finding anything helpful on the net, I just messed with it until I got it fixed. Here's what to do:

1. Take the cover off the back of the remote sensor.

2. Set the chanel to ch.1. (I tried all three but only ch.1 worked for me).

3. Use several tools. (i.e. a stick, needle, what ever you can but you need two) and hold down the reset button on both the sensor and the clock. (at the same time.)

If done right, it should only take a few seconds to start.

The outside temp is delayed at first. Be patient.

Manuals Lib has the manual for the Oregon Scientific WR-8000 portable NOAA weather alert radio here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1205635/Noaa-Wr8000.html . I also found the manual here: https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/518KWtMbsmL.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Mine was doing this too. I got my can of compressed air (Ultra Duster or similar) and opened the remote transmitter a tad and sprayed the temperature sensor with it. It has worked fine ever since.

Try resetting the clock, by pressing the small button on the side of the clock, or get new batteries.

Check the channel mode that you are in. I play with the channel /memory buttons on mine and I finally get it to work. Sometimes it worksfor weeks sometimes just a day. Just glad I can get it to work - thought it was the remote unit but I was wrong.

-Press SELECT once and time number should flash.
-Press and hold SELECT and it will enter settings mode for the clock.
-At the bottom of the screen next to the moon phase you should now see PST time zone.
-UP and DOWN keys will change the time zone.
-Press SELECT and other clock settings can be changed.
