This morning display was alternating between no info and default info. Changed the batteries in the display unit and now have only boxes with no information in them. Also changed batteries in outdoor sensor (it had a flashing red light) Tried all buttons. Unit was working fine until today. It's almost three years since I bought it. Any suggestions

PaulĀ  I don't know your unit but it sounds like its time for a reset.

Thanks. I tried that too. Just did it again to make sure. Still doesn't work.

Hello Paul,

Make sure you are using high quality alkaline batteries in the weather station.
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.
4. Change the A-B-C channel on both the display and sensor making sure they both match.
5.Reinstall batteries (and/or connect AC adapter) in display last.
6.Let units sit within a couple feet of each other for 5 minutes to ensure a wireless signal is received. Once you have the outdoor temperature you can put the sensor back outside. Thank you. Enjoy your day!

Thank you Jennifer. I went out and got fresh batteries and that solved the problem. Much appreciate the response.
