battery into the slots inside the battery compartment. Make sure the
metallic contact is correctly oriented as shown below. Push the battery
into the battery compartment until it clicks securely into place.

Make sure the power adapters are securely plugged into the wall
outlet.
•
Make sure the adapter cords are plugged firmly into the baby units
and parent unit.
•
Make sure the baby units and the parent unit are turned on.
•
The parent unit may be too far away from the baby units. Move the
parent unit closer to the baby units (but not less than 1 metre).

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Operating range
This baby unit and parent unit can communicate over only a certain
distance - which can vary with the locations of the baby unit, the parent
unit, the weather, and the layout of your home.
When the parent unit is out of range, the parent unit beeps and displays .
To improve reception, move closer to the baby unit (but not less than 1 metre).
Taking care of your video and audio monitor
Your video and audio monitor contains sophisticated electronic parts, so
it must be treated with care.
Avoid rough treatment
Place the baby unit and parent unit down gently. Save the original packing
materials to protect your video and audio monitor if you ever need to ship it.
Avoid water
Your video and audio monitor can be damaged if it gets wet. Do not use the
parent unit and/or baby unit outdoors in the rain, or handle it with wet hands.
Do not install the video and audio monitor near a sink, bathtub or shower.
Electrical storms
Electrical storms can sometimes cause power surges harmful to
electronic equipment. For your own safety, take caution when using
electrical appliances during storms.
Cleaning your video and audio monitor
Your video and audio monitor has a durable plastic casing that should retain
its luster for many years. Clean it only with a soft cloth slightly dampened with
water or mild soap. Do not use excess water or cleaning solvents of any kind.
Remember that electrical appliances can cause serious injury if
used when you are wet or standing in water. If the baby units and/or
parent unit should fall into water, DO NOT RETRIEVE IT UNTIL YOU
UNPLUG THE POWER CORDS FROM THE WALL. Then pull the
units out by the unplugged cords.
