Ever since I "fixed" the baby monitor, the unit unit gets poor reception. The external plastic antenna has always been broken. Since I opened the case, the image has degraded. You can see the video clearly but it continuously flickers with the occasional steady image.
Inside the unit is a coiled copper antenna which does not appear to make contact with the plastic antenna. In addition, this copper doesn't even line up with the plastic one (might just be a case). I tried to thread it through with the help of dental floss with no luck.
Did I mess up the antenna? Is there just a loose connection in the unit? Any suggestions?
P.S.: I have partially resolved my question (previous post attached as a text file). The above question is what I'm still struggling with.
