Initially, re-confirm and post back with the complete make and model number of the Intercom system / outside unit.

Still, let's try check and review the basics. Proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • check the connections;
  • • inspect circuit board for corrosion and/or foreign matter;
  • • see if any of the capacitors are bloated or leaking.

All other tests would require the use of a volt/multi-meter.
