hi - I think I just fixed the problem for mine. I had the exact same problem. Literally just got back from the store with 2 brand new 9v batteries with an exp. date of 2013 (I made absolute certain they would be years away from expiring). I installed them, and I'll be damned if they didn't start chirping again. As I read the instructions one more time, it occurred to me that it was in hush mode. I pressed the "Push and and Hold To Test" button for about 2 seconds - not long enough to set it off. It hasn't chirped since, and it's been nearly an hour. Try that and see what happens. Good luck!

Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries, place them back in the camera, and give them a good charge (assuming that you're using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Most smoke detecotrs have a limited lifespan of 5-10 years. On the underside of the detectors should be a sticker with installed dated or replace by date. If changing the batteries doesn't stop the chirping it is most like time to replace the detector. If you check the manufacturer website they will give you a life expectancy for your detector.
