Change the batteries. LCD displays will appear very dim and hard to read except at certain angles is the batteries are low.

My outdoor thermometer transmitter was sending hhh instead of the current temperature. I opened it up a bit and sprayed it with compressed air (Ultra Duster or similar product) to clean the temperature sensor. It has worked fine since then.

PS200 manual warns of laser and not turning off before changing battery. You may want to ask a trusted friend to help to avoid any danger or accident. The manual doesn't show how battery is removed and replaced.

The battery is a "G10-A CNB." To replace it, you need a flat surface, a good light, and a pair of tweezers or a small (i.e., jeweler's) screwdriver. A magnifying glass is also helpful to see how the battery is mounted.
1. Make sure the thermometer is turned off.
2. Find the side with the indentation and pry the upper half of the thermometer (the face) away from the body. The two are attached by a pair of wires. Be careful not to detach these during the remaining steps.
3. The battery is held in by a circular metal cover that is the same size and shape as the battery. The clip is soldered to the circuit board on opposite sides. Imagining that the solder points are at North and South of a compass, there will be two small flaps on the cover at the East and West positions. These are folded over the side of the battery and help hold it in place.
4. To remove the battery, push the battery near one of the flaps and force it out the opposite side of the clip where the other flap is. It may be necessary to pry up the opposite flap a bit before doing this.
5. Reverse the previous step to slide the replacement battery in under the clip.
6. Press the face of the thermometer back onto the body.
7. Turn the thermometer on to check whether the new battery is working.

In vigorously boiling water, it should read 212 (at sea level) or a little less, depending on your elevation - lid on or not. Maybe the water wasn't boiling fast when you got the 200 reading. Make sure the probe tip is not touching the pot sides or bottom.
