I have Philips AVENT DECT baby monitor , the problem is the screen of the parent item was broken i can't see anything but we can hear and talk from it How can i fix the screen again ? Thanks in...

Hi ghadah83,

Doesn't appear there is a fix for a 'broken screen,' however, you may want to visit the Philips Support Site to look further into your issue:

You can also reach Consumer Care by calling 1-800-542-8368. Below is an FAQ that might help, too.

Why does my parent unit not turn on when I place it on the charging base? Answer

Your battery may be flat. It may take up to 1 hour before you can use your baby monitor again. If this happens, we recommend that you fully recharge your battery before use.

Hope this helps. Let me know by rating this solution. Thanks!

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.

Hi, I love my Avent SCD510 monitor, but it started acting up today. In the past, when the parent monitor was on, I could hear every move my daughter made. I could also tell that it was on by the white...

Hi there, I had the same problem. My baby monitor used to work fine, and then all of a sudden it wasn't picking up my baby's cries. I used to be able to hear the static in the background, but I couldn't even hear that anymore.If I pressed the "sensitivity" button on the side of the parent unit, I could hear the static and my baby, but after a minute it would shut off. Very frustrating!
It turns out that somehow the sensitivity had been set to low. (Maybe this had something to do with the time I let my baby play with it...) I turned the sensitivity back up to high and it worked fine.
To set the sensitivity, press and hold the sensitivity button (located on the side of the unit) for about one second. There will be a number of blue lights that light up on the front -- the more lights that light up the higher the sensitivity is. (Mine was set at 2 out of 5, not very sensitive.) While the lights are on, press the + button (located on the face of the unit) to increase the sensitivity (or press the - button to decrease it, but that is probably not what you want to do if you are reading this post.) Press + until all 5 blue lights are on, and you'll be at max sensitivity. (You can adjust it later if this is too sensitive, once you find out of this fixes your problem.)
After a minute, your baby monitor will set itself to the sensitivity level that you set. So if the sensitivity level is really low, the monitor will seem to turn "off" after a minute. If it is high, you should still hear some static.
Hope this answer helps someone! I am really glad I don't have to take this unit back, I like it.

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,

Battery in parents monitor won't hold a battery charge. worked for 18 months now just beeps constantly or just turns off.

We had the same exact problem, tried replacing the rechargeable batteries but to no effect. We called Phillips directly and they were very nice and are shipping us a replacement unit (they discontinued this model and I suspect this is a known issue).
