La Crosse WS-9016TWC Wireless Sun/Moon Forecast Station is not displaying outside temperature

My mother recently received a gift of a La Crosse WS-9016TWC Wireless Sun/Moon Forecast Station, which consists of a outdoor thermometer and a display unit. The unit worked perfectly the first time it was setup but failed to display the battery after changing the battery. We even change the battery in the outdoor thermometer, but this did not fix the problem. Here’s what we need t solve it (it’s in the manual somewhere, but the manual is not exactly easy to read).

  1. Remove the battery from both the outdoor thermometer and the display unit.
  2. Let it sit for a few minutes.
  3. Place the thermometer and the display unit next to each other.
  4. Install the battery in the thermometer.
  5. Wait at least 10 minutes and then install the battery in the display unit.

This should get the outdoor temperature to appear again.

    I am having the same issue. The display works and then loses the outdoor temp. Then when I go to replace the battery, nothing works. I’ve had my unit for almost five years and it does this every time I have to change the batteries. You’re supposed to leave the batteries out of both for 10 minutes. Then put the batteries in the outdoor transmitter first and then the display unit. Mine will beep when it registers it and then will populate all of the info. However, the battery changing process usually takes days if not weeks and there is no rhyme or reason as to how to get it to work properly. I just end up leaving the batteries in the outdoor transmitter and then randomly popping them into the display unit until it miraculously works. I keep saying next time the batteries die, I will toss the whole thing in the garbage and visit Brookstone, but yet I find myself randomly popping batteries in it at odd times of day. Sorry! If your Mom can return it for a refund, she should!!
