I don't think you can. My monitor cuts out for a moment every now and then too. I think if you turn the volume down a notch or two the humming sound will go away, but you'll still hear if the baby cries.

Mine doesn't cut off the sound when it's quiet
I can always hear the static-y noise or Adrian snoring/snuffling.
I turn the sound down at night so i only hear if he's babbling or crying.
I have noticed that very very occasionally it'll go dead for literally a second, but then the static hissing comes back.

It depends what model you have, mine has the option of continuous sounds or sound activated mine is ac401 and to change the settings:-

For continuous sound - press the menu button 3 times and select OFF
For sound activated press the menu button 3 times and select ON


Also if you want the sound activated option make sure the mic sensitivity volume is on maximum select 'ON' as above then press menu again and use the up arrow to increase the sensitivity :-)

Hope that helps :-)

I know this is an old post but we have using angel care ac401 with dd2 did you find the sound activated setting blocked out the muffley noises you get otherwise? Also if I put the volume up high in the settings how high should I put it on the front page setting that you can do without entering menu (hope that makes sense)

Lo doesnít usually wake apart from the odd dummy run but the monitor makes noises all night on continuous!

We have one of these but havenít used it since my first. If I remember correctly, the setting on the front page, as you put it, is just how for how loud the sound comes out of the handset - that is how loud it sounds to you when the monitor is activated. So if youíre in a noisy room you can turn it up or have it just on quietly if the room is quiet.

I never used the continuous sound feature as those staticky, muffly noises annoy the heck out of me. You really only need to hear when your baby makes a noise, activated sound mode is preferable. About the OP in the old post who is talking about the sound cutting out even though music is on - this is how itís meant to work. On the activated mode it is activated by the sound of a babies voice (they are designed to be sensitive to these frequencies), so it shouldnít be continually activated by music.

Also, if itís on activated mode and itís activating too often - to background noises, not just baby making noises - then youíve got the sound sensitivity too high and you need to turn it down. You shouldnít need to turn it right up, we never had ours above midway and we always heard when DS1 woke up.

Thank you this is so much better now there’s no interference!

Oh says it disturbs him more the sound jumping on but I find it a lot better & as it’s me getting up to her then so be it

I do find I might be too quick to jump on & go into her sometimes when she would possibly settle herself back off
