Articles Blog


Hello and welcome to La Crosse
Technology’s Tech Talk. A show
designed around answering your questions quickly and accurately. I’m Greg Pizl, and today we will be
setting up and showing you how to use your new Wireless Color Weather
Station. So, let’s go. Before we get started, I should
point out that this video has been organized into chapter points;
designed to help you find what you need to know, quickly. So if you’re
looking to set up something specific, use the clickable links
in the following overview screen to jump directly to that spot in this
video. You can also find the times to each
chapter point in the description below this video. Using this
method, simply click the blue highlighted time to the right. However, if you are viewing this on
a mobile device, such as a phone or tablet, you will need to drag the
red playhead to the time listed below. Otherwise, just sit back and learn
as we take you through each step of the setup process. So here is an overview of how this
video is organized: Chapter 1) Introduction, which is
actually what you are currently watching. Chapter 2) Initial Setup, we will
tell you what’s in the box, what tools you’ll need, and explain the
initial steps to take to ensure you have a functional device, as well
as how to search for and install your outdoor sensor. Chapter 3) Settings Menu, this is
an important section where we walk you through your Atomic time and
date settings, temperature readings, language output and more. Chapter 4) LCD Layout & Icon
Descriptions, in this chapter we will lead you around your weather
station’s screen, detailing what each icon means in relation to each
other. We also show you
how to adjust your backlight brightness. Chapter 5) The Time Alarm, here you
will learn how to set an alarm, snooze it, and turn it off. Chapter 6) Forecast Information,
this chapter covers the meaning of your forecast icons, trend arrows,
and how to view your heat index, dew point, and daily high and low
temperature and humidity readings. Chapter 7) Temperature & Humidity
Alerts, a strait forward chapter where we show you how to set high
and low temp and humidity alerts. Chapter 8) Basic Restart, if for
some reason your station is displaying dashes for your outdoor
sensor you may need perform a restart. This chapter will cover
the steps to follow in order to get things working correctly. And Chapter 9) Help Us, Help You, this
is the final chapter where we point out the unit’s model numbers, tell
you how to find customized support, and show you where to interact with
us on social media. Alright, let’s begin. Within your
package you should find: 1- Wireless Color Weather Station
1- Outdoor Temp & Humidity Sensor 1- 5 Volt Power Cord
2 – AA Batteries for the outdoor sensor. 3- AAA Batteries for the weather
station. And 1- Instruction Manual And here are some additional items
you may want to have handy, for proper use of this product. 1 Mounting screw or nail to mount
the temperature and humidity sensor 1 Power-drill or hammer for
mounting purposes And a North-facing wall or well
shaded area to mount your outdoor sensor. Now let’s get this station up and
running. To ensure proper function
of this device, we recommend following us through these five
simple steps. Step 1) Insert the two provided
“AA” batteries, according to polarity, into your outdoor sensor. Step 2) Insert the 5-volt power
cord into an outlet, and then into the back of the weather station
itself. Step 3) Is actually optional,
however, we do recommend inserting the provided 3 “AAA” batteries,
according to polarity, into the back of the weather station. These
will help the station maintain its time and weather information during
power loss. Step 4) Check your outdoor sensor
connection. The outdoor information should be showing up within the first minute. If, however, the outdoor
temperature and humidity information is not displayed, PRESS
& HOLD the TEMP button on top of the weather station for about 3
seconds. You will notice the strength signal icon start to animate. This continues the
station’s search for the outdoor sensor. Then, open the battery cover of the outdoor
sensor and PRESS & RELEASE the TX button
inside to force a transmission signal. Providing you use new brand name
batteries, insert them according to polarity, and have the station and
sensor set close enough to each other, the outdoor information should be
showing up. After you have your outdoor
information displayed on screen, we recommend waiting at least 5
minutes before moving the sensor to its outside location. This helps
the station and sensor sync properly and ensures a strong
connection. And finally, your last step will be
to mount your wireless outdoor sensor. To mount the sensor, insert one
mounting screw, nail, or even string through the hole at the top. You will want to try and place it
on a north-facing wall or in any well shaded area. Make sure also,
that it is mounted vertically to allow for moisture to drain out
properly. The maximum wireless transmission
range from this sensor to your station is around 300 feet of open
air. This does not account for
walls, floors, or windows. Because
of this, we do recommend temporarily putting your sensor in
the location you’d like it to be. Testing it for a few days to
make sure it stay connected, before mounting it permanently. Taking a little time to go through
your settings menu will ensure you have your station up to date and
working the way you’d like. To enter the settings menu, PRESS &
HOLD the Set button for about 3 seconds. Or until the station beeps and the Language setting begins flashing on screen. Once in the settings menu, you will
use the Plus and Minus buttons to adjust the values, and the Set
button again to confirm your adjustments and move to the next
item in the settings menu. I should also point out that if you’d like to exit the settings menu at any time, simply PRESS & RELEASE the Snooze/Backlight button on the top of the unit. This will save any changes you make and bring you back to the main screen. So here is the order in which the
settings menu will follow: First, is the Language setting,
which allows you to choose between English or Spanish. This will
effect the days of the week, month abbreviations, and instructions
within submenus. I will keep it on
the default English setting by PRESSING & RELEASING the Set button
to confirm my selection. Up next, is the Beep ON/OFF
setting. The default, as you may
have noticed, is ON. Meaning you will hear a beep for every button push. To change this to OFF you
will need to PRESS & RELEASE either the Plus or Minus button. To
confirm this selection, PRESS & RELEASE the Set button. This bring us to the Atomic Time
ON/OFF setting. It is important to
note, that if you set this to OFF, the settings menu will then skip
over item 4, the time zone setting, and item 5, the daylight savings
time option. Leading me strait to
item 6. We will talk more about the
specific atomic time details later on in this chapter, but for now I
will leave this on the default, ON, setting. By once again PRESSING &
RELEASING the Set button to confirm my selection. Because I set the Atomic Time
setting to ON, the next feature then will allow me to choose my time zone. Using the Plus or Minus button to cycle through,
these are abbreviated where EST stands for
Eastern time, CST Central time, MST Mountain time, PST Pacific time,
AKT Alaskan time, HAT Hawaiian time, and AST Atlantic time. I am
located in Wisconsin so I’ll select CST for Central time, but please
make sure to choose the proper time zone for where you are located. To
confirm my selection I will once again PRESS & RELEASE the Set
button. Setting 5 is pretty straight
forward and allows you to choose whether or not we want to follow
Daylight Savings Time. The default
setting is ON, but should you wish to shut this off, simply use the Plus
or Minus button to switch between the two. For me, I would like it on
and will confirm this selection by PRESSING & RELEASING the Set
button. This then brings us to Setting 6
where we can select between 12 and 24 hour time. I will go with 12
hour and make this my selection by PRESSING & RELEASING the Set
button. Next, will be the Hour setting.It’s
about 3:30pm here, so using the Plus button I will move the hour to
3, making sure the AM symbol turns off and PM symbol on. Now that I’m
at 3pm I will PRESS & RELEASE the Set button again to jump to the
Minutes selection. Here, I will PRESS & HOLD the Plus
button now to make the numbers climb rapidly. This also works in
the opposite direction with the Minus button. Once I reach 30
minutes I will PRESS & RELEASE the Set button again to move to the Year setting. It’s currently still 2016, so I’ll confirm
this with the PRESS & RELEASE of the Set button. Next I
move to the Month option. Today is
July 19th, so I will move the month to July, confirm this, and then
move the following date number here to the 19th. Confirming this once
again with the Set button. After selecting the date, the
station will bring you to the final setting, the Fahrenheit or
Celsius temperature reading option. The default is Fahrenheit but once
again you can easily change this with the Plus or Minus button. I
will, however, stick with Fahrenheit and make this my
selection with one final PRESS & RELEASE of the Set button. This will bring us back to the main
screen and keep all of the changes we have made. Now to finish up what I was saying
earlier about this station’s Atomic Time feature. When set to ON, like
we just did in the settings menu, this station will search for the
atomic signal at the Coordinated Universal Times of 7, 8, 9 10, and
11. And if there is no WWVB
reception, the station will search for the atomic time signal every 2
hours until the WWVB time is received. The atomic time signal icon will
flash while searching, and the tower icon will remain solid on
screen when it is finally connected. After the reception is
found, the station will only search for the atomic signal after
midnight, keeping it connected permanently. Of course you can have the station
perform a manual search for the WWVB time signal as well. To do
this, from the normal time display, simply PRESS and RELEASE the Set
button. But please be sure to have
selected the correct time zone from the list in the Settings menu. When
the Atomic time signal is received, the station will set according to the time
zone you selected. This chapter is designed to
familiarize yourself with how this station’s screen is setup. And to
give you an idea of all of the different things it is capable of. To break this up a bit and make it
easier to explain, we will separate the screen into three sections. Section 1 here represents your outdoor information. Icon 1) represents the Outdoor
Temperature alerts. This station
gives you the ability to set custom alerts should the temperature rise
above or fall below a set degree. We will show you how these work in chapter 7. Icon 2) is the Outdoor Temperature
Trend Arrow. This feature updates
every 15 minutes and compares data over that past hour. If the
temperature rises more than 2 degrees Fahrenheit within the past
hour, the Red Up Arrow will show. And if the temperature drops more
than 2 degrees Fahrenheit within the hour, the Blue Down Arrow will
show. No arrows or thermometers
will be shown in this section if the temperature has not changed by
more than 2 degrees within the past hour. Area 3) represents the Outdoor
Temperature. This can be changed to
Celsius within the settings menu. Icon 4) is the outdoor sensor’s Low
Battery Icon. When this appears on
screen, it may be a good idea to change the batteries in the outdoor
sensor. Icon 5) is the Sensor Strength
Icon. The more bars, the better the
reception. Area 6) here, is the Outdoor
sensor’s Humidity reading. Icon 7) is the Outdoor Humidity
Trend Arrow, which works exactly like the temperature trend arrow. If the humidity changes by 3%RH or
more within an hour, you will see an arrow representing the direction
in which the humidity has gone. Icon 8) shows your active Outdoor
Humidity Alerts. Chapter 7 includes
how to set these as well. And Icon 9) represents your outdoor
humidity comfort level chart. The
bar over the chart will move and change colors to indicate the
humidity level. This works the same
for the indoor section. Moving to section 2,
Area 1) here includes your forecast information, which will be covered
extensively in chapter 6. Icon 2) shows your AM and PM
symbols. These are important to pay
attention to when setting your time and alarms. Each time you move past
the 12-o-clock hour the station will switch between the two. Area 3) will be your Atomic time,
represented in white digits. This “atomic” feature can be turned off within the settings menu, however it is recommended to keep it on. Icon 4) is the Alarm Bell, which
will appear when you have an alarm set. We will show you how to do
this in Chapter 5. Area 5) is your Weekday, and can be
set to display in English or Spanish. We covered how to change
this in the previous, Settings Menu, chapter. Area 6) includes your month and
date information. And Icon 7) is the Atomic Time
Signal Icon. This was also covered
in the Settings Menu chapter. Now to Section 3) Which houses all of your
indoor temperature and humidity data. Icon 1) represents your Indoor
Temperature alerts. These will also
be covered in Chapter 7. Icon 2) is the Indoor Temperature
Trend Arrow. This feature works the
same way as the Outdoor Temperature Trend Arrows, updating every 15
minutes and comparing data over that past hour. Area 3) shows you your Indoor
Temperature. Icon 4) is the station’s Low
Battery Icon. When this appears on
screen, it may be a good idea to change the batteries in the back of
your weather station. Area 5) the smaller blue digits,
represent your indoor humidity. Icon 6) includes both the HI and LO
indoor humidity alert icons. These
will also be covered in chapter 7. Icon 7) is the Indoor Humidity
Trend Arrow, which again, works exactly like the Outdoor humidity
trend arrow. And finally Icon 8) represents your
Indoor Humidity Comfort Level Chart. Now that you have a better
understanding of what’s represented on your LCD screen, let’s show you
how to easily adjust its brightness. When plugged-in using the power
cord for constant backlight, PRESS and RELEASE the Snooze/Backlight
button on the top of the weather station to adjust the brightness. With each press you will cycle
through the options. High, Low, and
Off. Now, when you are using battery
power only the backlight will automatically be set to OFF. You can press the Snooze/Backlight button, or any of the buttons, to have the backlight turn on for 10 seconds. But after which, the
screen will turn off again to conserve battery power. Not only does this station give you
accurate forecast information and sensor data but it can also function
quite well as an alarm clock. Here’s how to set it up. First, you will have to PRESS &
HOLD the Alarm button on the top of the station for 3 seconds. The Alarm
Hour will begin to flash. It is here you
can use the Plus or Minus buttons to adjust the hour. Let’s set up an alarm here for say,
7:30am. Once I reach the 7am
number, I’ll PRESS & RELEASE the Alarm button again to confirm, and
move to the minutes selection. With
the minutes flashing, I’ll use either the Plus or Minus button
again to move the minutes to 30. Holding one of the buttons will
make the numbers count faster. Once there, I’ll PRESS & RELEASE the Alarm button to confirm this as my selection. This will set the alarm
and bring me back to the main screen. The Bell icon should have now
appeared, indicating an alarm is set and ready to go off at the time
we just saved. To deactivate or
reactivate an alarm simply PRESS & RELEASE the Alarm button. Doing so will bring up the time the alarm is set to go off at. It is within this
submenu where you have the ability to activate or deactivate an alarm. Just PRESS & RELEASE the Alarm
button again. You will see the Bell Icon turn On and off with each press. To confirm your selection
either leave the station sit for about 20 seconds or exit the
submenu by PRESSING & RELEASING the Snooze/Light button. Speaking of snoozing, here is how
the Snooze feature works. Once the alarm is going off PRESS &
RELEASE the Snooze/Backlight button to silence the alarm for 10
minutes. You should notice the ZZ
Icon animating. At any point if
you’d like to stop the snooze, or any sounding alarm for that matter,
just PRESS & RELEASE any button besides the Snooze/Backlight button. This snooze feature can be repeated
if desired. This station is equipped with some
very useful weather icons that will help keep you up-to-date on your
ever changing outdoor conditions. These Forecast icons use
changing atmospheric pressure to predict weather conditions that
will happen in the next 6 to 12 hours. Here is a look at the icons that
will appear for the different conditions you may experience: A Sunny Forecast… Partly Sunny… Cloudy… Rain… Thunderstorms… And if the outdoor temperature is
below 32 degrees Fahrenheit and the forecast is predicting Rain or
Thunderstorms, the Snowy icon will appear. The coolest thing about this
weather station is that the more you use it, the more it learns and
the more accurate it will be. Which
is why we recommend allowing 7 to 10 days for it to find the correct
barometric calibration. This will
ensure a truly accurate personal forecast for your location. Another feature to help you easily
predict the type of weather to come, are your Forecast Trend
Arrows. These Forecast Trend Arrows
represent your future forecast. An
Up Arrow means the pressure is rising and the weather is expected
to improve. A Down Arrow stands for
the opposite, where the pressure is falling and the weather is expected
to worsen. And when neither of
these arrows are showing, it means the weather is expected to remain
the same. Now let’s show you how to access
your daily high and low temperature, humidity, Heat Index
and Dew Point readings. From your normal time display, all
you have to do is simply PRESS & RELEASE the Temp button on the top
of the weather station. First up, you will see
your daily HI temperature and humidity readings. PRESS the Temp
button again to see your daily LO temperature and humidity readings. PRESS it a third time to see your
outdoor Heat Index. And a fourth
time to view you Dew Point. A fifth
PRESS & RELEASE of the Temp button will bring you back to the main
screen. It should be noted that these
values will automatically reset at midnight or 12am everyday. The beauty of having a personal
weather station is that you get accurate data coming right from
your backyard. In this chapter we
will show you how to protect sensitive areas around your home by
setting up custom high and low temperature and humidity alerts. To access the Alerts Menu, PRESS &
HOLD the Alerts button for about 3 seconds, or until you see your
Outdoor Hi Alert and its status flashing on screen. The way this menu works is first,
you have to arm the alert you wish to set. To do this, you will use
the Plus or Minus button to turn that specific alert from OFF to ON. Once an alert is set to ON you will
see the digits light up on screen. To edit that alert value PRESS &
RELEASE the Alerts button again, the digits should then begin
flashing. You will use the Plus and
Minus buttons here again to edit this value to your liking. Once you
have the value you’d like the alert set at, PRESS & RELEASE the Alerts
button once again, to move you to the next alert in the menu. Now, if you do not wish to set a
particular temperature or humidity alert, simply leave the alert set
to OFF and PRESS & RELEASE the Alerts button to skip to the next
Alert option. To exit this menu at any time,
simply PRESS & RELEASE the Snooze/Backlight button. This will
bring you back to the main screen, keeping any alerts you may have saved. But now here is the order in which
the Alerts menu will follow, along with where their particular icons
will be located when active. First, as we have showed you, is
the Outdoor High Temperature Alert. Second, is the Outdoor Temperature
Low Alert. Third, is the Outdoor Humidity High
Alert. Fourth, is the Outdoor Humidity Low
Alert. Fifth, is the Indoor Temperature
High Alert. Sixth, is the Indoor Temperature
Low Alert. Seventh, is the Indoor Humidity
High Alert. And Eighth, is the Indoor Humidity
Low Alert. It should be noted that if no
temperature alerts are set the OFF icon will show. This works the same for both the Outdoor and Indoor temperature alerts. In some instances your station and
sensor will have trouble connecting with each other. Now, this will
typically happen after the batteries go dead or you experience
a power outage. The most common fix
will be to perform a basic restart of your station. Here’s how it’s done. When the outdoor sensor readings
show dashes you will want to bring the sensor in the house and set it
at least five feet from the weather station. Remove the batteries from the
sensor, as well as, the batteries and power cord from the weather
station. Then PRESS & RELEASE any button at
least 20 times and wait 15 minutes. This provides a “Clean” connection
opportunity by removing any random energy still in the station. Basically, this returns the unit to
its out of the box condition. So, after the 15 minutes, insert
batteries into the sensor, then into the station, and then finally
reconnect the power cord. Within a minute or two the data from your outdoor sensor should show up on your screen. After which, we recommend
waiting another 15 minutes to make sure it establishes a strong
connection. You can then place the
sensor outside in its shaded location. Another important thing to point
out would be the model numbers for this unit. If you flip the weather station
around to the backside you will find the station’s model number as
well as the model numbers for its outdoor sensor and power cable. Additionally, these numbers will be
printed on themselves as well. Knowing where to find these model numbers
will be important if you wish to search for more information about
this product online. So, for the most part I think we
covered everything. But if you
think we missed something or if you should have further questions about
this product or others please do not hesitate to ask in the comment
section below. That is what these videos and our
social media channels are all about. Getting you the information you need to know quickly and accurately. We are here to help you. So please, follow us here on
YouTube for the latest video content, Like us on Facebook for some personalized interaction, and follow us on Twitter to join the
conversation. In the meantime we hope you enjoy
your new Wireless Color Weather Station. I’m Greg Pizl here for La
Crosse Technology’s Tech Talk, we’ll see you next time.

71 thoughts on “C85845 Complete Setup Guide”

  1. How accurate is the thermometer ? I placed another thermometer next to the LaCrosse C85845 and found there was 4 degrees difference at 75F.

  2. Indoor temp is 8 degrees off. Have had the unit on for 3 hours. Any ideas? I have accu rite and additional thermometer next to this unit. The other 2 read correct at 75 and the laCrosse still reads 83…????

  3. No closed captions. Ugh! Because I am deaf and need help with step by step guide than the paper that has instructions and it is NOT step by step instruction nor friendly format that really complicate for me to follow. Crazy!

  4. Don't understand why my outdoor readings are at least 5 degrees difference than that which is shown by my other LaCrosse weather station WS-9630U.IT and the difference in indoor humidity is 4 degrees different.

    Is there any standard setting one should use for Temps and Humidity alerts or is that personal?

  5. I see this at Costco. We have a older Lacrosse Atomic Clock, Model No. 86722, that uses the same 433mhz frequency. Would this new unit conflict with my older system? Use the same transmitter? We still like the old unit that tells atomic time, and temperatures. Can we use the old transmitter for signal to the new one, assuming it would not include outdoor humidity. Would the new transmiter power the old unit?

  6. This is a really good weather station as long as you don't mind replacing the remote sensor batteries every two days. If you upgrade to lithium batteries you can get thee days before replacement. And don't bother contacting customer service, they don't answer the phone.

  7. The "forecast" window has stayed the same..sun with clouds even though it's cloudy and rainy outside? Can anyone help?

  8. Our (really) old Lacrosse station just died. It had two indoor stations. We always had one in the kitchen and one in our master bedroom. Do you have to buy another unit to get another indoor station? If so, will one interfere with the other?
    Also, our old station had the sensor sitting on a little post away from the house siding so air can circulate around it and buffer it from the heat of the house. Why does this one not have that feature? Is it as accurate?

  9. There is a button inside the battery compartment of the outdoor sensor.
    It says TX next to the button. What is this for please?

  10. I bought two of these weather station, model C85845. Is it possible to only use one sensor for both stations or does each station require its own sensor? If so, will the sensors interfere with each other?

  11. Bought one from Costco. Placed the indoor and outdoor units side by side to compare. After stabilizing for a few hours, the readings are 2-3 degrees different in temperature and 3-4% in humidity. Is it in your tolerance range?

  12. I am confused about the atomic time icon. Is the tower supposed to always show? It went away on my unit. But the video made it seem like it was supposed to stay on and not blink when it connected. ??

  13. We got one of these for Christmas (from Costco, of course) and would like to understand why the 'temperature trend' icons never seems to illuminate even though the temps obviously do change. What is/isn't happening and how do we get them to operate? Thank you.

  14. My indoor temp is only right after midnight – when I awake in the morning, it shows as 69 degrees indoor, when the temp is actually 69 – within an hour it says 85……but the temp is still 69………..

  15. This unit is NOT very accurate! I have an older model which is spot on. Their 4 degree tolerance is unacceptable, returning to store!

  16. My display is hard to read at any distances. I can read it find up close but once I start moving away from the display it becomes harder to read. When I'm 8-10 feet away can't even read it. I have it plug in and the display on bright. Is there something I can do to make it brighter or do you think it's defected?

  17. Brought outdoor unit inside, set it next to main unit. After a 2 hr time period, the outdoor unit reads 71 degrees, which is the actual room temp. The main unit will still show between 83-85 degrees.

  18. i have followed your directions and even reset but my outside temperatures stay on for a little then go back to dashes?

  19. I recently purchased Model C85845 with Transmitter No. TX141TH-Bv2. This unit has had issues from day one. The instructional video is most helpful however performing a basic restart twice – the unit does not provide outdoor information – only dashes. Before the first restart, the outdoor temps were sporadic – however now the outdoor dashes are constant.
    I am ready to return this as it must be defective. Very disappointing…

  20. I am not happy with this model. The sensor doesn't flash, no matter how many times I press that small button (batteries are brand new). The few times I had it working it stops syncing a day later. By the way, I'm in Seattle and it rains a lot. I built a cover for this sensor to avoid water but it continues stop syncing. I even placed it in a small sandwich bag to protect it from the rain, but it stops working. Perhaps this sensor needs to be replaced? This item was purchased last November at Costco.

  21. Hello there, I am very happy with your product after replacing our broken sensor with the one you mailed us. It is working great. So far our sensor stays in sync with our device. Question for you: Can one sensor connect to two C85845 devices? If that's the case, we would like to purchase one C85845 device, how can we do this? Thank you

  22. Hello there. I just connected my sensor and got everything set up. It seems like the sensor needs some time to calibrate to the outside temperature and create a hi-lo range. How long should this take?

  23. I bought the C85845 on January 10, 2017. Within two weeks I began getting lines on the left side instead of numbers. I have tried doing the basic restart a number of times. It works for a while, and then the lines return. It will work for a couple hours and then blank out for a couple hours. I thought it might be the sensor so I ordered a new TX141TH-BV2. It arrived Monday, April 3rd. I set the display and sensor up like a new set and have used the basic restart three times in the 5 days since I received the new sensor. As I mentioned, the unit worked for most of two weeks before it started misfiring. I have put sensors in the same spot before, with success, so I don't think it's a problem with the location of the sensor. For the record, when I started typing, the outside temp and humidity were displaying perfectly. Now, as I finish, the lines are back. Thanks for your time and help.

  24. I got the T83653v2 (with charging USB)

    Does the station reads the tedency level or the station does that?. and I have been having it ever since 5 months.

  25. I got the T83653v2 weather station (with charging USB)

    The forecast icon just changed cloudy to cloudy and rain without the tendency going down. That is normal?

  26. I got the T83653v2 weather station charging USB)

    Does the grass always stay on because one time it was snowing and the grass just disappeared That is normal?
    sorry I got too many questions to learn about my weather station.

  27. my unit is blinking on and off. sometimes it blinks twice. sometimes it blinks six times and other time four times. it has fresh batteries in it and it has fresh batteries in the sensor. I checked them with a multi meter. The unit is plugged in as well. what is the blinking all about? I just bought this off Amazon this week.

  28. just got this and love it. came with two displays and both of them have exact same temp and humid readings for in and outdoor so pleased with the accuracy

  29. do have one question. when setting the low alert, it will only go to 31 degrees. cant get it set to 32 degrees. and the temp options are only going from negative F to 31f, stops at 31f. is this normal?

  30. Are you having signal problems on your weather station? I have the C85845 La Crosse technology weather forecast station.
    I have a video may help.
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=G8XY-noAlmM

  31. Hi – I purchased the C85845 on around Dec. 10th 2017 as a gift for my husband. One week later we began getting dash lines on the left side instead of showing the outside temp. We have tried doing the restart a number of times. It works for a while, and then the dash lines return. It works for a few hours and then it shows the dash lines again. We also have tried to press the restart in the sensor but it doesn't seem to help. The unit will work for a while then does the above again.

    Also the weather icons are not showing properly….EX: when it is sunny outside we get rain/snow icons showing (not the sun icon) or it shows the storm icon.

    Also the tower icon (atomic) does not stay is it suppose too. The video says it will??

    If there is no solution to the problems we are having what can be done?

    Thank you in advance!!!
    Linda

  32. On the forecast window it shows clouds when its clear and sunny outside and during the night it shows the sun?

  33. NOT USER FRIENDLY whatsoever.. Won't connect to internet!!.. Instructions concentrate more on silly battery installation rather important settings (really???) Total PIECE OF SHIT..

  34. I want to have the back light on all the time with out being plugged in. I have no outlet where it sets and don't want to have to reach up and push a button every time I want to look at temp.

  35. In the future of your weather stations.  can you create a low air quality alert light. So the public will know. Because I have a grandmother which she has breathing problems.

  36. I just bought this “weather station” a week ago and finally today I installed it… but guess what? Both the “set” & “temp” buttons don’t work… I press and hold them and nothing happens… all the other buttons work as expected and I’ve set up the alarm without a problems as well as alerts… without those two buttons, I’ve a clock that doesn’t tell the time nor the date… so it sits as a paperweight!

  37. 1st impressions, i was thinking of buying this device, but 3 mins into this video i'm having 2nd thoughts. if you have to make an OVERLY complicated tutorial on a product, that tells me there must be something OVERLY complicated with the product. i'm not buying a space shuttle after all. this video is not a good selling point, at least not so far, maybe it will get better, but i doubt that very much. Doesn't anything think this stuff thru before you release it ??? Well it did get better after the 1st 3 mins, maybe just remove that time and start 3 mins in.

  38. there products are garbage ive had 2 and both are inaccurate its 8 c outside and it reads 29 c outside , don't waste your money on la crosse products

  39. Have 3 of these already working great. Just set up 4th in separate area of our home. Display BLINKS on/off intermittently. To be clear, it turns on and off without being touched but seemingly with no pattern…just randomly. I tried swapping batteries, different outlet, etc. Any suggestions?

  40. I have a problem with my weather station. I put my thing out side and about 15:00 it quits giving me the temp. OUT side just lines on my screen. What do I do? Went on line and done everything they said to do . Now what? My E-mail [email protected] Thanks.

  41. My C85845 just stopped working one day. Nothing on the display, completely dead and blank. even with new batteries and AC adapter as power source. Also changed out sensor batteries and it shows red light as functional but the station is still totally blank so not an issue of the two not detecting each other.

  42. A couple points:

    1. Since batteries are apparently no longer included, perhaps that fact should be mentioned in the YouTube description.

    2. Though it's too late to update this video, I wish you had included a demonstration of the kickstand. I kept expecting it to fold out from the bottom of the station, not the middle. Having finally figured that out, I still can't get it to support the weight of the station; instead it immediately partly folds in again and the station falls on top of it. Is there a way to lock it open that I'm missing?

  43. Seems like if the lighting on the device is dim if it is raised above the eyes or higher than desktop height not readable if it is put up high.Not sure what kind of lighting it used but can be annoying if you are sitting you need to stand up if it's up to high to read it.Hope this gives you A ideal of my review.Other than that it works as it should
