SOLUTION
There is signal interference due to other nursery monitors on same
channel or cordless telephone use. Change channel switches on
both transmitter and receiver to eliminate source of interference.
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.
