I believe you can use a short piece of wire in place of the yard wire to test the unit. Do that and if you get sound the fault is in your yard wire. If you don't then your transmitter probably is bad since it would be very strange for both receivers to go bad at one time. Unless you got a bad batch of batteries or you put them in backwards. That can happen, I know from experience.

yes, I did. I think it is a collar issue.

Did you check the repaired area with a voltmeter to ensure power is getting through?
