Temperature & Humidity
« on: October 21, 2011, 12:59:30 PM »
I've had my Vantage Pro2 Wireless for about 5 years.  Just recently the temperature started displaying "-90" and there was no humidity reading.  I changed the battery, also cleaned the contacts, (they were clean & dry) and used some dielectric grease on the contacts.

I've searched the internet any this forum but cannot find any information.  Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks
Frank

Send in your temp/hum sensor to davis for a new one,  they will charge around $80.

Save some money, www.archertradingpost.com/atp, and give the date code on the white cover on the board inside the transmitter. There are 2 different T/H sensor replacements depending on the date code.                   EDIT P/N 7346.166 for units that use the DFARS   P/N 6930 for units with the 'standard radiation shield' and the 6382 T/H station

 Companies now days foreget what customer service is and look after #1. Their pocketbook. Once you have the equipment they know they got you.  I find that it not like it se to be dealing with anyone now days. Their another outfit that is on this board that  just tells you that your angry when their unit been an complete lemon from almost day one. Isn't that right Ryan. Oh well every time I see someone Too
 looking at that brand I'll talk them out of it. Too bad it wasn't an car under Alaska lemon laws  it would of had to be replaced.
