No sound on parent unit

Posting this all over, common issue...

Okay, a couple of things.

This speaker issue seems to be a common problem, and I believe it most likely occurs due to rough handling of the unit. Although it seems to be fairly rugged, it should be treated gently. In general, I would only handle it as much as needed, and be careful when setting it down, and make sure it doesn\'t get dropped.

With that being said, the unit can be opened, however doing so will break at least some of the "snaps" that hold it together. If it is out of warranty and you need to get into it, this is a necessary evil.

Step one: Remove the battery cover (one phillips screw) and battery. There is a second, smaller phillips screw that also must be removed.

Step Two: At this point, you are ready to separate the unit. Using multiple flat head screwdrivers, pry the unit open (starting on the right side when looking at the unit from the front) then "wedge" the pried open area with a second flathead screwdriver as it will naturally want to close back up. Continue working your way around the unit, being careful not to crack the screen. You will break some tabs along the way, but I see no way around this as they are not visible to try and release them any other way.

Step Three: Once you have separated the two halves of the unit, the power button will have fallen out. This is okay as it will slot back into place when you reassemble the unit. Just set it aside and do not lose it.

Step Four: I do not know the exact failure mode of the speaker, however you will find that it is apparently strongly secured in the housing with an adhesive (epoxy or some sort of resin) and if you had to remove it it would be difficult and not very fun.

MY SOLUTION: I hooked the battery back up and turned on the music feature, which should play music from both the camera and the parent unit. In my case, I found that tapping hard on the speaker (it took more force than you would think) would cause the music to momentarily play. I found that wedging a screwdriver between the plastic housing and the speaker body would make the speaker play. I used a small nail (like a trim nail for small trim) and wedged it between the speaker and the housing, then trimmed off the excess of the nail.

This solution is not ideal, but it was relatively quick and worked to keep the unit functioning for now. I imagine that there is some sort of connection that has failed internally in the speaker, and that wedging it has (at least temporarily) reformed the connection. I imagine that a new speaker could be installed with some work to remove the old speaker, and then a new one soldered in and glued into place.

Once I got the speaker working, I disconnected the battery and carefully replaced the power button, then the two halves simply snapped back together. I replaced the screws and reinstalled the battery, and all has been working as it should. The case does show some damage from my prying, and it doesn\'t fit as tightly as it used to with the broken snaps, but it does hold together and doesn\'t have any issues in normal use.

In all, it certainly beat buying a whole new unit, especially since it was working just fine other than the sound. Good luck!

Hello need to replace the parent unit battery from my Philips Avent Scd520 Dect Baby Monitor. Where can I buy a new one in Toronto?

This is not a solution. :(

In Toronto, or indeed anywhere!? I am with you, Pao, the silly parent unit battery (which is a simple wiring case around 2 AAA batteries) can't be purchased anywhere, as far as I can tell. Yet it's so simple, it must be identical to something else out there.

If I find out what, I'll post it here.

Trying to purchase a replacement parent handset for SCD520?

You can't. I just called Philips and apparently if the parent monitor stops working for whatever reason after the warranty has expired, there is no way to send them off to be repaired and no way to purchase a separate parent model. You are STUCK with buying the whole package again. I have a perfectly good base, but the parent model got into the hands of the child and no longer works. The parent units have to be sold with the base. These parent units are so vulnerable; can't believe there is no way to purchase a replacement. No happy with Philips.

I have a John Lewis baby monitor, which is less than a year old. The parent unit is unable to link to the baby unit. Batteries seem to be in working order. Thanks. Jackie

Less than a year old = go for a warranty repair or replace, Use the warranty while you can as you'll end up with either a working or new unit.

1- The baby unit doesn't work on the mains only 2- The parent unit is on the charger for a day now and still doesn't open

Your issue #1 seems like a power adapter issue. Please swap the sender and receiver adapter and see if anything changes. Mark them with a sticker or felt pen before you do this because they probably are identical.
Your issue #2 seems like you have defective batteries, although I don't understand 'doesn't open'. The receiver uses standard NiMH cells that can be reached through the back battery compartment. You could swap them out and test.
If the set is still within warranty I suggest you take it back. Within the warranty period you usually get a replacement.

I hop this helps.

With kind regards,
