is there a way to set contrast on the 01500? so display is readable
I just got the weather center for xmas and installed it with fresh batteries, but the display is very hard to read, especially the weather ticker. I must shine a flash light on that to read it at all.

Hello Jim,

There is no way to adjust the contrast on the display. If you are having a hard time reading the weather ticker we would recommend slowing the ticker speed down on the display. Are you using the backlight function on the display? Thank you. Enjoy your day!

If I turn on the back light, then the entire display is almost unreadable. ticker is at slowest speed

I think ill just return unit to Amazon and get another Lacross unit

Jim,
I have the 06022 Display and when I first got it it seemed like the only way I could see the numbers was to hold it at an extreme angle. I held the reset button in for 10 or 15 seconds and everything started looking fine.

I mounted the display unit where my original weather station was, at eye level. I found this units display is readable enough if you view it from a top down angle. so I remounted it below eye level and it is good enough.

I also reset the unit per Ron Shadwell's advice... that might have helped also. Thanks
