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.

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.

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.

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.
