My brand new weather station model 01535S isn't working. The screen starts up fine, I get a great signal and information for a couple of minutes, then the screen starts to break up and then goes blank. Very unhappy. I posted a question about this a while ago and have not yet had any response.

Hello Dan,

We are sorry if we had not responded to a previous thread. We would be more than happy to assist you with this.  Can you provide a picture of what the display is doing?  If you completely reset the unit does this continue?  To reset the unit you would need to unplug the display and remove batteries from the sensor.  Then place one of the recommended brands listed below in the sensor first then plug in the display and add the sensor again.  Thank you and have a great day!



Batteries:
•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.
