  • Updated 3 months ago
Bought 554SBDI about a month ago. All Temps and readings are working fine. The device randomly resets itself. I have to use the set button to go back through all the settings like you are first setting it up. I have it plugged into the wall and batteries are installed as well. Any idea as to what can cause this?

Hello John,

Please try doing a factory reset on the display.


Please verify that you are using a name brand (Rayovac or Energizer) standardalkaline batteries in the display unit. We do not recommend using anything thatis heavy duty, rechargeable, store brand or Lithium inside of the display.

- Remove all power, AC adapter and batteries, from the display unit.
- Press and hold down the pin hole reset button, located in the batterycompartment, for 20 seconds.
- Plug back into AC power and insert recommended batteries.
- Press and hold down the pin hole reset button for an additional 20seconds.
- Verify that the unit has powered on and once connection has been made,attempt to set time and date.

I am having this exact issue.  I bought my 5 in 1 yesterday and it's already reset itself 3 times!  The reset hasn't helped.  What do I do?
