Keeping the LED monitor portion on the entire time sucks the battery pretty quickly on mine. It has an automatic shut off button but if you're like me, you probably check it constantly. I found that when I'm not turning on the LED portion and also turning it off when he's awake and with me, it keeps the charge MUCH better.

SOURCE: I have a Summer Infant Monitor. Model 2010. The

I was unable to find any direct information on a Model 2010 Infant Monitor. The picture shown by Fixya is of an LCD handheld monitor.

If I understand the problem correctly, you are seeing a picture that is only 1/2" wide in the center of a 4" or 5" CRT (similar to one of the three CRT models presently shown on the Summer Infant site. You did not state whether it is full height, or if it is a complete picture rather than simply truncated at the sides.

If it is a complete full-height picture, but squashed into a 1/2" vertical stripe, the vertical deflection is OK but you have a problem with the horizontal deflection. Since you have more or less full brightness (you did not mention any problems with that), the horizontal oscillator is working and producing the proper 2nd anode voltage through the flyback transformer. In many small black and white CRT monitors the horizontal deflection current is coupled through a non-polarized electrolytic capacitor. If this is going bad, it will produce this symptom.

If the entire picture is undersized and dim, you may have a power supply problem - if it is also erratic and you hear snapping sounds, it's could be the flyback transformer. If the picture goes edge-to-edge horizontally, but is squashed into a 1/2" high strip, you have a coupling problem in the vertical deflection circuit. A non-functional vertical oscillator will give you a single line across the center. A malfunctioning vertical oscillator will give you a rolling image.

Have you checked the safety recall information on these infant monitors? The two primary issues are keeping the cables away from the baby, and battery rupture problems on certain models.

SOURCE: Our Summer brand Model 02170

here is the manual http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfimages/ee/eee691a0-e88c-41d2-8df3-327e03f45222.pdf

I dont think yours is a battery issiue, I would call the manufacture on the first page of the manual.
although if you dont replace the charge on the unit at least monthly the batteries wont be healthy. If you are going to store it make sure the alkaline batteries are out of the mic or transmitter unit. and you can unplug the rechargeable one as well. this will help the battery life.

I had the same thing happen! I didn't have a solution when I first read your post but I got mine to work again. When I took the battery out of the hand held unit (the parent one) and put it back in it stared to work again. By that time the battery had gone dead because it had been on for a day while I struggled to find a solution (it stopped working in the middle of the night). I am going to email the company as well. Maybe there is a defect in the product? I know the ones sold a few months ago were recalled because the battery was overheating and causing the monitor to work. For now mine works but I figure notifying the company may help because if others are having this same problem there might be a defect and they can recall the product or at least replace it when it happens to us again.

SOURCE: My summer infant video monitor's screen went blank

this just happened to mine too and i took the battery cover off and out of the handheld parent piece and put it back in, turned it on and it started working again. hopefully this is only a one time deal due to the fact that they are somewhat expensive (however the best ones supposedly) and i already replaced my first one that the screen stopped working on due to dropping it and replaced that for the little bit cheaper one and smaller one but has the talk back button. now that my daughter is getting older (16 months) i like having the option to be able to talk to her especially since i live in a 3 story house!! so anyone yea, just took battery out and put back in and seems to be working ok right now.

Why does it keep "saying" out of range?


if camera and base are within a few feet of one another does it have a problem obtaining a signal (syncing ) ?? as if it works ok then there might be a object that is getting in the way of the signal , radio waves move from its transmitter (camera) towards its receiver (monitor) in a straight line , if there is too large a mass in the way then the radio wave can't penetrate it and will be "lost" also ck both the camera's and bases battery levels (if they have one) for proper peak power level , as it takes energy to drive the radio signal towards its receiver .

On my summer video monitor the volume up button has started to control the movement of the camera and there is no way to turn the volume up. Is this common and is there any way to correct the problem


We tried taking the battery out, running the monitor on a/c power only, and deleting then resyncing the camera. None worked. Finally I just ended up calling the summer infant customer service line. They told me that the unit had to be replaced. If you are within 12 months without a receipt, or 15 months with the receipt, you can send it back and get a new one for free without paying any shipping and handling.

Summer infant baby monitor has frozen screen


My monitor was stuck on one of my cameras and when I turned it off and on again it was stuck in the hello screen. I took the battery out and put it in again. Then I pressed the button on the left (I have a best view) and pressed the right arrow key until I got to the view can screen. It turns out something was wrong with just one of my cameras as I could view the other one. I unplugged and replugged that camera and that solved my problem!

Green light on and no sound or picture


Turn on both the camera and monitor. Press the power button on the front of the monitor to access the camera selection menu. Make sure your unit is set to "cam 1". This should fix the problem.
