PrimaNOVA has an integrated charge function in both units. Set the switch on
the left in the battery compartment to CHA (the up position) and insert the
rechargeable batteries correctly following the + and - markings. Plug in the
adapters. The batteries should be charged for about 12 hours. The unit can be
used during charging, but the time for charging should then be at least 14 hours
for a full battery charge. Unplug the adapters after charging.
If the rechargeable batteries appear to be weak (do not hold their power for
long), they must be replaced with new ones (Ni-MH, AAA, 1.2V, 550mAh).
NEVER try to charge non-rechargeable batteries as this may be
Batteries should not be charged for more than 24 hours.
Remove the batteries from the units if they are not going to be used for
an extended period of time.
• Press the on/off button (A1) on the baby unit and set the sensitivity level (A3)
to approximately the middle position. The status indicator (A2) changes its
colour when the unit is activated by sound being transmitted to the parent
unit. Select the same channel using the channel selector (A4 and B4).
• Place the baby unit vertically facing the baby and outside the baby's reach.
• Place the parent unit some distance away from the baby unit and press the
on/off button (B1).
• Adjust the volume (B3) on the parent unit to the desired sound level. When
the unit is receiving sound the visual sound indicator (B6) lights for the vari-
able sound level. See the legend for description of light signals and alarm
NOTE: If the baby unit sensitivity level is set to minimum, only very strong
sounds will be transmitted. If it is set to maximum, even weak sounds
will be transmitted continuously.
The parent unit signals by means of different alarm tones to indicate
range and weak batteries. The alarm tone for range is activated when
the switch B7 is placed in the up position.
Check sound transmission before using the units. Check that the units are pla-
ced within range of another and that sound from the baby unit can be heard in
the parent unit. Only a limited number of channels (frequencies) have been
allocated to electronic baby monitors by the authorities. Therefore there may
be interference from other units at the same time that your baby unit is trans-
mitting sound to your parent unit. In such cases try to change the channel and
adjust the sensitivity lower to avoid having your baby unit transmit weak
sounds, such as when your baby moves in its sleep. Another baby monitor can-
not, however, interfere when your baby unit is not transmitting sound, unless it
is on the same channel. Then you simply switch to another channel.
