Received a 5in1 with xtra 06016 display. One display is operating well the other is not showing any rain numbers or rain fall the blue rainfall sector is blank. I have done the total reset and know that the 5in1 is working via the unit that is working.

Hello Duan,

Can you provide a picture of both displays side by side so we can see what you are seeing? Did you set up both displays at the same time? Please try the reset on both displays and the sensor.   

You want the display and sensor to be at least 3 feet from electronics such as televisions, microwaves, computers & radios.  Follow the battery guidelines below:

•Verify you are using fresh alkaline batteries or lithium batteries (when temperature is below -4oF/-20oC) in sensor.

•Quality brand batteries are recommended, including Duracell, Rayovac, Energizer, or Kirkland.

•Verify batteries are fresh. The battery expiration date should be at least 6 years out. Batteries can lose 3% power or more every year in storage.

•Heavy duty, extra strength or generic / store brand batteries are not recommended for use with AcuRite products because they may cause performance irregularities due to the way these types of batteries disperse power. Each battery should not exceed 1.6 volts.

•Rechargeable batteries are not recommended for use with AcuRite products because they may cause performance irregularities due to the voltage instability of these types of batteries.

•Mixing different battery types (brands, old/new, etc.) is not recommended.

If you are following the battery guidelines perform the hard reset steps below:

1.Bring both the sensor and display unit indoors and position them side by side.

2.Remove all batteries from the sensor.

3.Remove all power from the display unit including the adapter (if applicable)

4.Wait 1 minute to ensure that any remaining battery power has discharged from both units.

5.Inside each battery compartment you'll find an A-B-C switch, change the channel to the next setting making sure they both match.

6.Reinstall batteries in outdoor sensor first.

7.Reinstall batteries (and/or connect AC adapter) in display last.

8.Let units sit within a couple feet of each other for 3 minutes to ensure a wireless signal is received.
*The display should receive the signal within several minutes.

9.After a connection has been established you may place the sensor outdoors.
 *If the signal connection fails after the units are separated try a new location for the display unit, the sensor or both.
