THey are not very powerful are they.  I found that the one I use in my office works better if you reorient the receiver.  Have someone repeatedly push the button and someone else rotates the receiver so that you get the internal antenna turned the best way to pick up the signal.  Kinda like moving the rabbit ears on an old tv.

If this doesn't work you might open up the receiver and add a longer antenna.  Sometimes this works but sometimes it just detunes the receiver and hurts more than it helps.

You could try to add an antenna to the transmitter also.

How far apart are the two?

Are you sure the batteries in both are good?
