PROBLEM
SOLUTION
Change channel switches on both transmitter
and receiver to eliminate source of interference.
Helpful Hints:
- Do not use more than one transmitter and one
receiver at same time in same household.
- Always remember that you are using public
airwaves when using your monitor. Conversations, even from rooms near transmitter, may
broadcast to other nursery monitors, radios,
cordless telephones, or scanners outside your
home. To protect privacy of your home, always
turn transmitter off when not in use.
PROBLEM
“Charlie, please
turnaround, you’re
too far away.”
STATIC
You hear static or buzzing because
receiver is out of range of transmitter.
Note: Range varies depending on surrounding conditions such
as noise levels, physical obstructions and signal interference.
Under ideal conditions, the range can be as far as the length
of a football field.
SOLUTION
STATIC
STATIC
CARE
Excess dirt in the transmitter microphone will hamper transmission
of sound. Also, excess dirt in the AC adaptor jack hole will prevent proper
jack-to-socket connection. Clean outer surface of the transmitter, base and
receiver with a cloth lightly dampened with a mild cleaning solution.
Never immerse transmitter, base, receiver or AC adaptors.

Consumer Affairs, 636 Girard Avenue, East Aurora, New York 14052.
Move receiver closer to transmitter.
Helpful Hints:
- If you cannot hear your child and all five bars do not light,
your receiver battery is weak. Replace the receiver battery
with a fresh, 9V alkaline battery or use AC adaptor for
power source.
- If receiver is too close to transmitter, you will hear squealing
or whistling. For example, your toddler (while wearing the
transmitter) may walk into the same room you are in (listening to receiver). Move receiver further away from transmitter,
or turn volume on receiver down to reduce noise.
