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,

I have tomy classic baby monitor from a year now, from few days parent unit is beeping continiously, have checked connection and evrything and even the green light does goes red


The unit may have a back-up battery installed that is low on charge. Replace the back-up battery. The unit is probably still working because you have it plugged-in.

The sound suddenly stopped working on the parent unit of my MBP36 baby monitor even though the volume is turned up to its max. Is there an easy fix for this? I have only had it for 5 months and the picture...


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!

I have a Graco baby monitor, it started making a noise for the last 2 days, could it be a battery problem (even with power connected)? The monitor is about 1.5 years old.


Annoying! happens to us too frequently, but this works. We ended up buying a new one and returning our broken one after owning for three months From Manual:) 5. Turn on the Nursery Unit using the On/Off switch on the side. The green power light should come on. 6. Within a few seconds, the Parent Unit will lock on to the Nursery Unit and the top four (4) green LEDs will shut off. A second later, you will hear a series of beeps and the connection LED should change from red to green. Your monitor is now ready for use. 7. If the top four (4) LEDs do not shut off, power off the Parent Unit and the Nursery Unit and repeat steps 4 and 5 above. 8. If the connection LED on the Parent Unit does not change from red to green and the unit begins to beep, press the channel "ch" button on the Nursery Unit. Within a few seconds, the Parent Unit should lock in on the Nursery Unit and the connection LED should change from red to green. You may hear an audible beep during this process. 9. If the Parent Unit is still unable to lock in on the Nursery Unit (connection LED will be red and the unit will beep), power down both the Parent Unit and the Nursery Unit. Wait for 10 seconds then hold the volume down button on the Parent Unit while pressing the On/Off switch. When the unit powers up, you will hear a single beep and all of the soundlights will illuminate. Release the volume down switch and within 2 seconds you will hear two beeps and all of the Sound Light LEDs will stay lit and the bottom LED will be red. 10. Repeat steps 5

THE PARENT UNIT DOESNT SEEM TO PICK UP THE BABY UNIT THE PARENT UNIT SEEMS TO KEEP FLASHING WITH 2 LINES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SCREEN WITH THE BABY UNIT FLASHING TO.


The units are not locking in to the same frequency and if this is new it must be referrred back . However if this was working earlier then there could be a shift in the communicating frequencies between the master and slave.
So remove battery of allthe units and replace after 15 minutes.,Try a reset if desccribed in the manual or the procedure for intial set up once again .

My parent unit is not working. All it does is flash when it's supposed to show me the pendulum swinging, room temp etc. I have forgotten how to reset it. Help please


Manuals here: http://www.angelcare-monitor.com/Canada/en/help#tabs-2
Had same problem - here's what worked for AC401 (from manual):
CONNECTING THE PARENTS UNIT TO THE NURSERY UNIT: If you lose the connection between the 2 units,turn them both off. Turn ON the parents unit and press and hold the MENU button ,the "out of range"indicator will flash and you will hear a beep.Turn ON the nursery unit and press and hold the top button of the nursery unit to reconnect. The Tic light flashes.This normally happens within a few seconds and you will hear a bleep to confirm it. If successful, the parents unit display will first show the channel of transmission (C1 to C8), which will be replaced by the room temperature and icons for all activated functions.

Philips Avent SCD520 Baby monitor interference


cold be intefernce from any other electronic device... potentially at a neighbours. even though mifddle of the night, could be microwave, kettle, electric blanmket, heaitng system, etc etc ... any appliance.
