Hi Fred,

The following instructions should help resolve any issues you are having with your display.

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) standard alkaline batteries in the display unit. We do not recommend using anything that is heavy duty, rechargeable, store brand or Lithium inside of the display.

- Remove all power, AC adapter and batteries, from the display unit.
- Inside the batter compartment there should be a white sticker with four numbers on it, please email those numbers to me.
- Press and hold down the pin hole reset button, located in the battery compartment, for 20 seconds.
- Plug back into AC power and insert recommended batteries.
- Press and hold down the pin hole reset button for an additional 15 seconds.
- Verify that the unit has powered on and once connection has been made, attempt to set time and date.

If your barometric pressure is still not reading properly, please let us know.

Hi Crystal,
I followed your instruction. The white sticker is '4112'. The barametric pressure still reads very low, 9.92.
I am using Duracell alkaline batteries in the base unit.
