I have the Fisher Price Lights and Sounds baby monitor for Olivia…Tonite is the first time Ive ever used it and its picking up like a radio signal or something? I can hear a mans voice in the background or something?! Has this ever happened to someone else? Reply Malia: May 30, 2012 at 1:30 am (Edit) Yeah, that can happen. Actually a neighbor 2 doors down said she heard my husband singing to Alexis one night. Weird. Reply Olivias Mommy♥Faxing Berlin: February 1, 2012 at 5:47 am (Edit) A better baby monitor? We got the Fisher Price Lights and Sounds monitor for Olivia at my shower…..up until Olivia was 7 months she slept in her Pack and Play with us so we didn’t really use it. To be honest I hate this monitor. It buzzes horribly, makes a screeching sound when I go in her room, and the plug connection falls out of the monitor part so easily. I can also hear everything thats going on at my neighbors 2 doors down…they have a child as well. Olivia is 10 months and I would like to get a good new monitor thats not too pricey. Any suggestions? Reply dmg: April 18, 2012 at 2:51 am (Edit) We’ve been really happy with this one: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp? productId=2815256&CAWELAID=143057588 We live in the city, in an apartment full of electronics and it picks up *nothing*. We’ve had it for nine months. I really have only good things to say except that the rechargeables it came with were junk. But once I bought my own set we’ve had no issues. Reply Anonymous: February 10, 2012 at 1:54 am (Edit) Voltage rating for Fisher Price baby monitor? If anyone out there owns a Fisher Price Private Connection baby monitor (or for that matter any other baby monitor by Fisher Price), could you let me know what the voltage rating for the AC adaptor is? I’m presently in the USA, and as such am looking for a monitor that runs at 120V, 60Hz, but I may be moving to India in a year or so where the AC power is 230V, 50Hz. Thanks. Reply Anonymous: March 16, 2012 at 11:31 am (Edit) Most of the Fisher Price models are 120V, 60Hz. The Fisher Price Surround Sounds and lights adapter is 120V, 60Hz, 7W. Hope this helps, Alan
ReplyJenny:February 15, 2012 at 2:18 pm (Edit)Will two different baby monitors in the same house cause them to have lots of static andbasically not work?I still have a monitor in my three year old’s room- I believe it’s called a Fisher Price Lights andSounds monitor and it only has two channels to choose from. We’re expecting another baby in acouple of months and I will obviously need another monitor in the baby’s room (which is rightacross the hall). I would like to know if anyone has any experience with having two monitors in thesame house and if they interfere with each other so much (static, etc.) that they are useless.Thanks!Reply ♥DJ Alex is 10 months old♥: March 30, 2012 at 5:46 am (Edit) They only interfere with each other if they are on the same frequency. You will have to buy another monitor that has two channels to switch back and forth with. Leave one on one channel and the other on a different, otherwise yes they will interfere. ReplyTanya L:February 22, 2012 at 5:10 pm (Edit)Bad reception with Fisher Price Baby Monitors. Anyone else?We’ve had these monitors since our twins were newborn. We’ve always heard funnybackground noises, and know its not coming from thier room. When I have thier monitor on in thierroom, and the receiver turned on elsewhere in the house, I can hear music playing, a tv going andother people talking. Now, unless the kids are having a crib party that I’m not aware of, this is prettystrange. When we lived at our other house, I could hear another mother talking and playing with herbaby in the middle of the night. Anyone else have bad reception with these monitors?Nope, sorry no ghosts, unless they are following me from one location to another. Don’t live in anapt. building, but there are other people around us who have children, so its probably them I’mpicking up. I’ll try turning the channel to see if that works. Thanks!Reply Rachel R: May 21, 2012 at 11:00 pm (Edit) I’ve had the same problems. Try turning it to a different channel, they usually have 2 to pick from. Also, It will freak out if next to my cell phone, especially if I get a phone call. I will know I get a call from the monitor before my phone actually rings! Replymychemicalromance:February 25, 2012 at 2:18 pm (Edit)any good baby monitors?the last monitor we had was a safety 1st monitor and it worked fine or about month thenstarted to get static.now we bought a fisher price monitor with dual receivers but now there is abuzzing noise on it……any idea what could be causing this on the fisher price monitor? what brand of baby monitor wouldyou suggest?both monitors we got have 2 frequencies,it seems to be the same on either frequencyReplyCurious Mind wants to know:March 11, 2012 at 9:15 pm (Edit)Best baby monitor out there?Right now we have Fisher Price’s Sounds & Lights monitor but we keep picking up ourneighbors’ sounds, even on different channels.We want a ‘closed’ monitor where we will not pick up anything. Price not an issue. Anysuggestions? TIA!I guess I wasn’t very clear, I’m looking for some kind of monitor that is closed-circuit, zerointerference.Reply Loved: March 30, 2012 at 4:10 am (Edit) http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2266258 ReplyStella:April 4, 2012 at 9:35 am (Edit)looking for a baby monitor?I am looking for a baby monitor that will work best in my situation.It will be used in a 2 story townhouse and only for nap times when he is sleeping upstairs and I amdownstairs. I don’t need it to work outside b/c we don’t have a yard. It needs to work with wirelessinternet without static interference. I am not interested in a motion mat or video. I’d like to find agood one that is relatively inexpensive.We bought a fisher price one but it has too much static.Reply Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?: May 29, 2012 at 1:15 pm (Edit) You will find static on all that are analog — just to varying degrees. Digital monitors aren’t prone to interference like analog monitors are. So, digital ones don’t get interference from other devices.
I’ve had two monitors that I really like … one digital and one analog. The digital one is by Safety First. It had no static interference, good battery life and good range: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Safety-1st-High-Definition-Digital-Nursery-Monitor/8342864 The analog one is Sony Baby Call. It does have static, but it has “noise sensing technology” so when the level of ambient noise in the room is constant it shuts off — so you hear absolutely nothing. When the noise changes (ie: your baby crying, moving around etc) it will turn on. It also has 27 channels to choose from so you are likely to find one with minimal static interference. And, because it shuts off you won’t hear any noise coming from the monitor when your baby is asleep. http://www.amazon.com/Baby-Call-Nursery-Monitor- Channel/dp/B000S35QLC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=baby- products&qid=1268509500&sr=8-1 Replystephanie o:April 7, 2012 at 1:28 am (Edit)what is the range of a fisher price baby monitor?Reply angedelapitie: April 11, 2012 at 5:47 am (Edit) It depends on what model you get. Different models have different ranges. I do not like them personally. We’ve had to buy 2 of them for our daughter. The first one gave out about 10 months. The second one I got the one with 4 channels instead fo 2 and I still get interference on it all the time. I’m pregnant with #2 and I am not going to get a Fisher Price monitor this time.

Should have posted some links and stuff. ReplyAnonymous:April 13, 2012 at 8:17 pm (Edit)Can I use a different brand of monitor with a receiver?I have a fisher price baby monitor with 2 receivers but one was dropped and broken. If Iget a different brand will the fisher price monitor work with it on the same channel?Reply Nomadd: May 8, 2012 at 1:09 pm (Edit) Probably not. Baby monitors work on three different frequency bands, and even withing the same band use different channels and different ways of matching up to each other. ReplyAnonymous:April 15, 2012 at 5:24 pm (Edit)Do ALL baby monitors produce static throughout the day?I had a basic Safety First baby monitor. I think it cost all of $18 USD. Every night it wouldgo through these spasms of 10 minutes of nothing except static. I would unplug everything that didnot need to be plugged in to help stop it but it didn’t.The other day I bought a Fisher-price Lights & Sounds baby monitor for about $ 40 USD. It seems tobe working well but it ALSO produces a TON of static. I have tried it on both channels…still goesthrough spasms.Has this happened to anyone else? Or is there something with the electrical system in myapartment?Blue- That is SO creepy and very weird that you picked that up! LOLReply PYT_Trisha: May 29, 2012 at 4:32 pm (Edit) I have the same Fisher Price monitor that you do. It is ALWAYS staticy, but from my understanding, all monitors are. Oh, and if you keep a cell phone too close to it, it makes funky screechy sort of noises. I just turn a fan on at night for “white noise” and I don’t really notice the static anymore. ReplyAnonymous:April 16, 2012 at 4:41 am (Edit)Can someone suggest a good baby monitor?i’m not looking for a video model..I bought the fisher price sound n lights monitortoday..but the reviews on babiesrus don’t look good..I have’nt even used it yet…but i’m wondering ifi should get another one..Reply
Courage: April 29, 2012 at 5:08 pm (Edit) That’s the one I have and I’ve got no complaints about it. They’re complaining about static, but we haven’t run into that problem. We use it in the room next- door and usually rooms upstairs. We can tell when her sound-machine is off, when it’s just the aquarium and humidifier running, or when everything is up and going normally. It’s quite sensitive and we’ve never had issue with static interfering. I’d say try it. If you don’t like it or it doesn’t work well, then take it back. No loss there. They won’t get after you for opening it and trying it out and then bringing it back if it doesn’t work out. ReplyNicole R:April 17, 2012 at 7:08 pm (Edit)Baby monitor help?I am having some trouble with our baby monitor. It is a Fisher-Price Private ConnectionDual Monitor. They are nice mointors you can change the channel and all of that. Ours keepsmaking this cracking noise like every 5 mintues or so. It came with two monitors and both of themare doing it.Do you think its a problem with the receiver or interference or something? We have tried changingthe channel already. Has anyone had this problem? These monitors are only 7 months old.Reply Anonymous: May 25, 2012 at 12:27 am (Edit) We have this problem. They are very sensitive, and respond to phones being turned on and off, microwaves, etc. If you can, try the Graco imonitor, or whatever it is. I have a friend with that one and its crystal clear. Replycandy177:May 1, 2012 at 3:13 am (Edit)What kinds of baby monitors are available for deaf parents?I’ve looked a little bit online and found a monitoring system where you basically hook yourwhole house into this receiver (phone, doorbell, alarm clock, baby monitor etc) that comes with lightfunctions and a vibrating disk to put under the mattress. The baby monitor is sold separately andcan be hooked up either way also. Together, all of this costs about $225-250. Do they have cheapersystems? In the 2 years that my husband and I have been together, we’ve never really seen theneed to get anything like this for the phone and such…and since we have an apartment, we don’thave a doorbell anyway.Reason being – my husband is hearing impaired and we’re thinking of having a baby in the nextyear and a half or so…I just want to be prepared. I don’t think the little Fisher Price monitors thatvibrate would be strong enough to wake him if I was at work…Reply sissynoodle: May 21, 2012 at 9:08 pm (Edit) Try this website http://www.alldeaf.com. ReplyAvick:May 2, 2012 at 8:41 pm (Edit)What is the best baby monitor to buy?I have a fisher price baby monitor and it sucks all I hear is static I would love to find onethat is alot clearer.Reply Artie Lange Fan: May 7, 2012 at 2:03 pm (Edit) I have a Phillips Avent digital baby monitor, it’s a little pricey but you get no static since it’s digital. It is awesome, tells you the temperature in the baby’s room and plays lullabies, etc. ReplyHappy Girl:May 6, 2012 at 5:34 am (Edit)where can i find reviews on baby items?about to buy the fisher price baby monitor … need to hear reviews on it (holding baby… sorry bout lower case.Reply a heart so big: May 12, 2012 at 11:44 pm (Edit) I would try Amazon. They usually have more reviews and more detailed reviews. ReplyAubrees Mommy♥:May 13, 2012 at 5:29 pm (Edit)I need a new Baby Monitor..Which one?Right now, we have the fisher price lights & sound monitor. It is in the process of dying.Aubree is 14 1/2 months old. I was thinking about NOT buying another one but her bedroom is onthe other side of the house and if she were to cry at night, we would barely hear and it certainlywould not wake us!
So, what do you recommend? Links are appreciated! Reply Anonymous: May 23, 2012 at 9:00 pm (Edit) I have a Fisher Price monitor. I’m honestly not sure which one. It was a gift from my sister. It’s the biggest piece of crap I’ve ever owned and I’ve only owned it for 4 months!! It looks nice and everything and if it worked the way it’s supposed to it would be an awesome monitor, but it loses signal way too easily, the picture is horrible, and if it’s not on the charger it dies within an hour. I hate it. I wouldn’t recommend this monitor to my worst enemy. And it sounds like if yours had died already, then Fisher Price is not a very good monitor brand. I would stay away from that particular brand. My sister is still using the same monitor with my nephew since he was born and he’ll be 3 years old in July. I wish I knew what brand it was. Sorry I wasn’t more help. My only advice to anyone is stay away from Fisher Price baby monitors!! Reply notoriousbob3105: May 16, 2012 at 1:53 am (Edit) does anyone know where i can get a replacement battery for my baby monitor? its labeled ni-cd aaa350mah 3.6v.? Fisher-Price Dual Private Connection Monitor Reply TV guy: May 19, 2012 at 12:07 am (Edit) Try the Web http://www.batteryspace.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWCATS&Category=215 You can ignore the 350 mAh – you can get one with higher. The important part is SIZE (like AA, C, etc.), and 3.6 V Reply worldwarme1013: May 19, 2012 at 3:45 am (Edit) Has anyone tried the Fisher Price – Long Distance 900MHz Nursery Monitor? I’m trying to find a good but not expensive baby monitor and I found this one at walmart online and I was wondering if anyone else has this or tried it so I know if I should try it or not.
