SOURCE: summer infant baby monitor

Need to clean and resoldering works.Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked or loose. It is possible that the cold solder is still minimally connected (hanging by a thread). When the receiver turns on heat would be generated which would be sufficient to further loosen up the solder joint to the point it no longer provides electrical contact. Jarring the unit creates movement inside enough to re establish the contact, sometime good enough sometimes not enough.

Again, since the unit still operates (sometimes) then it is highly probable that there are no defective components. As you have surmised, it is possibly a loose connection, solder joints are "connections" except that molten soldering lead is used to attach/connect the component to the board, "loose connection" in this sense is equal to "cold solder".

Again on the assumption of no defective parts, then seeking a more experienced buddy for the soldering might be to your advantage. This is of course in addition to the possible electrical hazards when repairing....If i have helped,please click to rate.It is the only way i get paid for my work...

Good luck:

SOURCE: ice maker been working fine, just stopped?

If no ice is being made at all it is probably one of three problems. The ice maker itself needs replacing. The water inlet valve needs replacing. Or the freezer is not 10 degrees or less. You will need to test the water valve solenoids. If you have water in the door then there will be two solenoids. One for the ice maker water and one for the water in the door. They are both mounted on the same assembly. The easiest way for you to test is with a meter. You want to check for continuity on the solenoid for the ice maker. If no continuity, it is bad. If you have both water in the door and ice maker and no meter you can swap the two quick disconnects on the two solenoids and then see if you still get water from the door by now using the other solenoid. If you do not, then you know that, that solenoid is bad. If the soloind is good then you probably have a bad ice maker not calling the ice maker fill valve to allow water.

SOURCE: Monitor display is blurry, with shadows and waves next to text

Jnanda,
Could be one of two related situations both have to do with built up magnetic flux:

!. If you have used the monitor for a significant amount of time and have never degaussed it that might be it.

To fix: Go to where your monitor's controls are (eg screen size/position, Brightness, Contrast, etc.). Providing that we are referring to an older style monitor (like a TV) and not a flat screen, you should find a degaussing button located there. This button is marked with a depiction of a horseshoe magnet. Press it.

If you have on screen settings control, hit the menu button and select the icon that looks like a horseshoe magnet.

You'll hear a buzz and the screen will go kooky for a moment.

You're then degaussed. Your problem should go away.

2. You may have moved the monitor close to a source of electromagnetic interference (or vice-versa) this will also cause that sort of thing you describe (remember that there are electrical lines in the walls (another source of EMI)

In that case move the monitor away from the EMI source or move the EMI source away from the monitor.

Remember that it could be both 1 and 2. So if the problem lessens but does not go away fully try both steps.

SOURCE: My ViewsonicVP930b Monitor Suddenly Turns Off

This is a classic VP930 problem.

It is caused by bad capacitors in the power supply circuit.

Open the monitor, and look at the power board. There are six capacitors. Replace the 220uF @ 25V and the 1000uF @ 16V capacitors. I would recommend replacing them with 35V and 25V capacitors respectively.

If the serial number on your monitor starts with Q8H you could also have a bad IC on the main board. Q8 on the main board is an FET in an IC package. If this problem persists solder a wire from the right side to the left side. There is one pin that turns the IC on and off. All the other pins (per side) are soldered together. Do not solder the pin on the left side that is by itself. Just leave it. Solder ALL the other pins on the left to ALL the other pins on the right.

Remember, do this ONLY if the problem persists after replacing the capacitors AND if your serial number starts with Q8H.

SOURCE: had summer baby monitor for eight months, last night it stopped

Your monitor has become unpaired with your camera. Follow the instructions in the manual to pair them again (basically, tell the monitor piece to Add New Camera while you press the Pair button on the camera). The manuals can be downloaded from www.summerinfant.com.

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 .

How do I synce the camera back to same monitor


I just barely had this problem and was able to figure it out.

You need to hit the "ok" button on the side of the handheld monitor. It will only let you select "add camera".

Hit ok again and it will give you a list of 4 camera's.

Now at this point you will need the actual camera and handheld monitor. You need to hold down the "code" button on the back of the camera and select "camera 1" in the list of 4 cameras. This should sync it back and you should have picture again!

I hope that helps :)

Suddenly, the handheld monitor turns off (no picture or sound) and will not turn back on, even when I plug in the AC adapter. The green light on the battery indicator is on, but the monitor won't turn on...


Mine jut did this. What did you end up doing. I did what other people said which was take the battery our and put it on the stand... NOPE... green light on but not sound or picture. I could hold the button down until the cows come home and it will not turn on.

I can't get the monitor and the camera to sync.


Turn on your monitor and camera. Click the menu button and choose, add camera. As soon as you do, push the "code" button in on the back of the camera. You should see a picture soon after.
