I have a Davis VP2 (cabled). The outdoor temp, humidity and wind chill are showing dashed lines (started this afternoon). I suspect the outdoor sensor may have failed :(, any suggestions on checking / testing the sensor?
If not already fixed I suppose a check of the connections inside the ISS may be an idea plus a new battery.
If it’s wired then I don’t think there is an ISS battery, it’s powered from the console. Hope it’s a bad connection.
did you get this sorted pmeehan ?
I can confirm no battery in the ISS.
No, not sorted yet and I have checked all connections. I have been in touch with the people I purchased from (WEATHERBUFFS.COM) and a replacement temp/humidity board has been couriered to me under warranty - just waiting delivery. Very good service from weatherbuffs.com, unit was dispatched within a couple of hours of contacting them. I just now hope that is the problem.
Courier turned up with replacement Thermo/Hygro board just after last post. Board fitted and unit now back in full operation.
Great service from WeatherBuffs.com. I certainly have no hesitation in recommending them.
My station has been running for the last six weeks no problem. Today my outside temp reading suddenly went to -67.8 deg C, it’s actually about 19 deg.
Has my replacement sensor failed or could there be some other explanation?
A bit coincidental. 19oC is approx 67oF
just reread your post. Was that -67.8 oC ?
now i’ve a new sensor and all is ok
Yes, console is reading -67.8 oC
Worth checking the thermometer probe connection in the ISS circuit board otherwise you need another chat with weatherbuffs
