Thanks for this. I couldn't figure out how to get the blue clip off without breaking it to clean some dirt on the screen. Googled it, found this, job done.

Sometimes the activity of the reference quartz is 11,150 MHz, and the devices do not find each other.

I have so repaired the parent module.

Hi Dimitriy - I am experiencing the issue with not finding devices each other. How have you fix it ? Is it a matter of replacing the reference quartz with new one ?

Hi. At my Angelcare (AC401) parent unit the screen has slowly become worse and worse. At first, parts of the temperature figures dissapeared, then the symbols around and now I no longer see anything... But the unit still works! (And alert me if the baby's crying) What do you think, is there anything I can do or do I need to buy a new one?

Hi There. I’m having the same problem. Did you find a fix or did you buy a new unit?
