Can't change history display on model 00638

I've got a model 00638.  All the buttons work, and the unit has been very reliable.  However,  now it seems that the History/Mode button seems unresponsive.  The only history that I can look at is barometric pressure.  I tried resetting the display, to no avail.  Any thoughts?

Hello Kenneth,

We would recommend doing a factory reset on the display. If that doesn't correct the issue, and you have had it less than 1 year we would initiate a warranty claim on the display. The factory reset instructions are below:


To do a factory reset: (THIS WILL CLEAR ALL OF YOUR HISTORY AND YOUR SETTINGS)

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.
