Sound Reception

It is very important to test the sound
reception of the Sound ’n Lights Monitor before
first-time use and whenever you change the
location of the transmitter.
• Test the Sound ’n Lights Monitor transmission and
reception. In the room you intend to use the transmitter, have an adult speak into the transmitter. (If an adult
is not available,use a ticking clock or radio.) Place the
receiver in the room in which you intend to use the
receiver. Adjust the receiver location or volume dial
until you hear sounds clearly.
• If you experience interference (buzzing, static, etc.)
while using one channel setting, switch both units to
the other channel. Selecting a channel is usually a
one-time adjustment.
• If interference occurs on both channels or if further
problems develop, please refer to the “Problems and
Solutions Guide” beginning on page 7.
