Motorola Baby Monitor Not Pairing [5 Easy Solutions]

It is the most common issue, according to Motorola users. Some of the possible reasons are weak signal, interruption in frequency, broken pair, or wrong installment of the units. Let us assist you to break down this issue. 

1. Disconnect the Units From Electrical Power

If your Motorola monitor fails to connect with the camera, the first step will check the power supply. When there is no fluent electrical supply, the device will start malfunctioning.

In various cases, cracked wires or defective power cords will create lags. So, before calling the technician, let’s follow the below steps:


  • Turn off the parent unit.
  • Also, turn off the baby unit or camera.
  • Now, unplug it from the electrical power.
  • Disconnect the unit from the AV cable
  • Check the electrical outlets and surface. Verify all are well working.
  • Sensibly check the visible wires. Replace damaged ones.
  • Finally, reconnect the cable and plug it into the outlet. 
  • Verify the connection with the outlet and make sure its secured
  • Now, move to the next step. 

2. Check the Battery Pack

After disconnecting and reconnecting the power supply, the next step is checking the battery pack of both units.

In the parent unit, there installed a battery, which needs to recharge for a couple of hours. When the charge is too low, it may disconnect the pair from the baby unit.

 In some cases, the battery may get drained, and it is not for use more. Also, if somehow the battery is distracted from its place, the unit will not function properly.


  • At first, inspect the battery by unscrewing the back cover.
  • If you do have not a screwdriver near your hand, take a sharp object and pry the battery cover off.
  • If it is so long of using the battery, it will be better to change it now.
  • Install the new battery in an accurate place and connect the cover. 
  • Also, if the battery is well working, there may be out of charge. Recharge the unit.

3. Is the Signal Out of Range?

Out-of-signal or bad signal quality is the major cause for failing to pair with the camera. For communication of the parent unit with the camera, there needs a strong signal connection.

A low signal or no signal will not let the units operate properly. Let’s know the reasons why there will cause out of signal:

  • Having any large object in between them like refrigerator, mirrors, or doors.
  • Incorrect position of the camera and the parent unit.
  • Installation of the units on an unsecured surface.
  • The camera and receiver are long distances.
  • The monitor out of range of the camera.
  • Having similar frequency devices in between of them
  • Frequency interference


  • Start by checking if there are any hard obstructions between the camera and the monitor.
  • Verify they are not placed in long distances. Also, not closer than one meter.
  • Make sure that the units are installed in a secure place.
  • You must have to mount the camera in the range of your parent unit.
  • If your parent unit is using an antenna, make sure it is not broken. Also, place it in an optimal reception, where the cameras are mounted.
  • Remove all wireless devices like stereo speakers, mobile phones, Wi-Fi routers between them.

4. Hard Reset The Units
