If you’re having trouble setting up your ET-733 or ET-734/ET-734BGE unit, please see the guide below for a simplified set up process.

  • Not pressing any buttons for a few seconds will set whatever is currently on the screen. It is best to perform these steps quickly so you won’t have to start over.

Make sure the devices are being turned on in correct order:

  • Receiver (remote) unit first
  • Transmitter (unit with probes) unit second
  • If you’re having problems connecting the units:
    • Resync manually by pressing and holding button on back of transmitter
    • Replace batteries in both units; low power is the most common cause of connection problems.
