Baby unit battery installation
You can power up the baby unit by connecting it to AC power and
installing four AA alkaline batteries. Even if the baby unit is connected to
AC power, you must also install four AA alkaline batteries for the baby
unit to operate. This can also guarantee continual operation in case of a
power outage..
Install four AA alkaline batteries (not supplied) into the battery
compartment, matching the polarity markings (+ and -) inside the battery
compartment.
Gently pull the ribbon
and lift up to remove the
batteries
Notes
•
Do not mix old and new batteries. Do not mix alkaline and standard
(carbon-zinc) batteries.
•
The operating time for using AA batteries is short, only for a few hours. If you
want to monitor your baby for a long time, we recommend you connect your
baby unit to AC power.
•
If the baby unit will not be used for a long time, disconnect and remove the
battery to prevent possible leakage.
•
You can use rechargeable AA batteries for the baby unit, but the baby unit
cannot charge rechargeable batteries.
SET UP THE BABY MONITOR
Make sure the ribbon attached inside the battery compartment is put
under the batteries and the excess ribbon is tucked in properly. Then
replace the battery compartment cover.

baby unit to avoid audio feedback. If you still experience audio feedback,
move the parent unit and the baby unit farther apart. Place the baby unit
at least 1 metre away from the baby or crib.
At least 1 metre
NOTES
•
For better image quality, do not place the baby unit too far away from your
baby.
•
It is the caregiver’s responsibility to stay close enough to take care of any
eventuality.
3.6.2
Audio settings
The baby unit may not detect sounds when the sensitivity level is set
below a certain level. You may need to increase the sensitivity level (see

TROUBLESHOOTING
If you have difficulty with your video and audio monitor, please try the
suggestions below.
My video and audio monitor does not work at all.
Make sure the baby units, parent unit and the batteries are
installed and charged correctly (pages 5 to 15). For optimum daily
performance, charge the parent unit when it is not in use.
•
Make sure the power adapters are securely plugged into the outlet
not controlled by a wall switch.
•
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).
•
Unplug the electrical power to the baby units and parent unit. Wait
for approximately 15 seconds, then plug it back in. Turn on the baby
units and the parent unit. Allow up to one minute for the baby units
and the parent unit to synchronise.
•
Install the correct type of batteries in the baby units and follow the
proper polarity orientation between the battery and metallic contacts
inside the battery compartment.
•
Charge the battery in the parent unit for up to 12 hours.
•
If the parent unit battery is completely depleted, it may take up to
30 minutes to charge the parent unit before it can be used for a short
time (page 15).
•
Remove the battery and then install it again. If that still does not
work, it may be necessary to purchase new batteries.
•
Large obstructions may impact the reception. Try to relocate the
baby units, away from large obstructions such as walls and doors.
•
Other electronic products may cause interference with your video
and audio monitor. Try installing your video and audio monitor as far
away from these electronic devices as possible: wireless routers,
radios, cellular telephones, intercoms, room monitors, televisions,
personal computers, kitchen appliances and cordless telephones.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
When the parent unit is out of range, the parent unit displays Waiting for
linking...
To improve reception, move closer to the baby unit (but not less than
1 metre).
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.
