Weather station install was easy and unit worked flawlessly for about two weeks, now the backlight will not come on with the touch switch and the other functions to adjust settings are completely useless. I have tried resetting the entire unit , removed and reinstalled batteries and power to no avail.

Please verify you are using the recommended batteries and try the troubleshooting steps below. If this does not correct the issue, please let us know. Thank you.

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


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.
