How to Fix La Crosse Weather Station Display Problems?

After helping you understand what are the possible problems that could impact your La Crosse Weather Station display, it’s time that we go into troubleshooting.

This will be of great assistance in our troubleshooting guide, as long as you follow our solutions in chronological order.

Let’s jump in with the guide and figure out how to solve this problem!

Solution #1 Undergo WP Setup On your Station!

The proven way to connect your La Crosse Display to the WiFi, is via the Wireless Protected Setup, only if your router supports it too.

Routers nowadays may or may not have WPS buttons, that’ll allow such a connection to exist.

  • The Google Mesh routers do not have a WPS button!

In that set of thoughts, search for the WPS button on your router and then head back to your La Crosse Weather Station.

Follow these steps to undergo WPS:

  1. Unmount your La Crosse display from the wall stand (keep it connected to the A/C).
  2. Press the WPS Button on the back panel of the device for 5 seconds.
  3. Head back to your router device and press the other WPS button.
  4. Wait for 30 seconds and your weather station should get paired.
  5. Test the connection…

Remember that after pressing the WPS button on your weather station, you have about 60 seconds to press the same button on your router.

If it is not pressed, the pairing mode of your weather station will expire and it’ll not connect.

If fails: Take the weather station as close as possible to the router!

Solution #2 Re-Sync the Display to the Sensor

Re-syncing your display to the sensor is done through the La Crosse View App, available for both iPhones and Androids.

You could also even use the La Crosse View application, to connect your display to the WiFi, if your router doesn’t have a WPS button, that’s a second option.

Once you have the app installed on your mobile device, you’ll be prompted to create a registration in the La Crosse database to proceed with using your weather station.

If the sync with the sensor got lost, your display will be inactive.

Here’s how to repair it:

  1. Launch the La Crosse View application on your mobile device.
  2. Make sure your Sensor(s) and Display are powered up.
  3. Confirm that the display is receiving a WiFi connection.
  4. Place the display in Configuration Mode by pressing the “Temp” button.
  5. Launch the La Crosse View app.
  6. Press “Get Sensor Data” once the app has been launched.
  7. Follow the rest of the instructions, to re-sync your display with the sensor.

You should also note that you don’t have to necessarily use one sensor along with your La Crosse display. You could pair multiple sensors for more accurate weather info, displayed on your La Crosse display.

Note: Paired sensors will appear in the “Devices” section, within the La Crosse View app!

Solution #3 Place the Sensor Device Closer

In order for your weather station’s display to function properly and show weather info correctly, the sensory devices must be as close to the main unit as possible.

Still, the sensors must be placed outside, in order for your station to receive weather info, but they must also be close.

  • Optimally, sensor/transmitter devices must be within a 50-meter range!

That means you’ll have to place your sensor outside, but it should still be physically close to the display, although it is outside.

Figure out an appropriate position for your sensory devices and change their position to boost the signal as much as possible.

Once you’ve picked a new position for the sensors, perform a resync of them using the La Crosse View app and test…

Note: You’ll know that your sensors are still paired if they appear in the “Devices” section!

Solution #4 Hard Reset the Station Display

A quick way to address any software and hardware faults regarding the La Crosse Weather Station Display is to perform a Hard Reset on the device.

  • A Hard Reset is achieved by cutting the power for a short period of time!

Here’s how to hard reset your La Crosse Weather station:

  1. Press the Power Button on the display (if there is one).
  2. Locate both ends of the power adapter.
  3. Disconnect the first end of the power adapter, from the Electrical Outlet.
  4. Unplug the other end of the cable, from your La Crosse Display.
  5. Wait for 3 – 5 minutes, while your La Crosse display is disconnected.
  6. Re-attach the Power Adapter to its appropriate connectors.
  7. Turn on the device and test…

If your La Crosse display got hot as a result of working for too long, reattach its power adapter once the device has fully cooled down. Then, test whether the display is now working!

Solution #5 Get the Internal Batteries Replaced

What’s so great about La Crosse Weather Station displays, is that they could both use batteries and A/C Power Adapter to receive power.

That means if your display’s power cable has gone faulty, you don’t have to purchase one right away, but let your display use batteries for a while.

Follow these instructions to get the internal batteries of the display replaced:

  1. Take off the display from its Wall Mount.
  2. Expose the battery compartment on the back.
  3. Eject the compartment cover.
  4. Take out the two AA alkaline batteries.
  5. Insert new alkaline batteries into the device.
  6. Close the compartment.
  7. Reinstall the display and connect it to power.

Removing the internal batteries of your La Crosse Weather Station display could cause it to unpair from the WiFi and desynchronize from the sensors.

Important: Connect the display to the sensors and WiFi again, after replacing the batteries!

Solution #6 System-Reset the Weather Station!

One of the most powerful solutions that you can attempt is the Factory Reset on your La Crosse Weather Station display.

It’s an easy method to apply and it could help with software bugs and glitches impacting the device, including the display!
