Reset after power outage

I have one phone line. I have a set of three digital cordless phones with one base answering machine unit and two recharge cradles. I can't find my instructions. After a power outage, I believe I just need to reset the clock?? (It flashes CL on the display.) I can't figure out how to reset the clock. ( That's what I had to do on an AT&T phone I have.) Please tell me how to do this.
Thanks,
Betty Clark

    I have a GE 6.0 model 27951FE1-A model and it flashes "CL" after a power outage and I can't figure out how to reset it. Of course, I can't find the manual. Thanks you.

You just need to reset the time to fix this problem. There were three buttons on the back of the base for the day, hour, and minutes. I didn't know they were there!

If you are lucky, it may just be a blown fuse. You can try disassembing the base unit and checking for an open fuse inside on the circuit board. Please remember to disconnect the power supply and the phone line before disassembly.

Otherwise the circuits in the base unit were probably fried in the resulting power surge and are likely beyond economical repair.

However, the old handset(s) are probably still good. So if you do get a new replacement base unit of the same model, then you can probably salvage the old handsets and just program them for use with the new base.

I hope that was helpful, good luck and take care.

Joe.

it sounds like the unit has taken a surge, which is a common side effect of power outages. unplugging and replugging make fix the issue but since you have already tried this, i would reccomend contacting the manufacturer. See if a replacement can be given or if you have warranty on the unit.

The E is most likly a refrence to general error. the main board for teh unit was probably damaged by the power outage.

We had a power outage and now the answering machine displays an A that we can't get rid of. Now matter what we do the system no longer works.


Try unplugging the base unit and removing the batteries from all the handsets. Then put the batteries back in and plug in the base unit to see if that resets everything.

How do i put the ring tone back in the handset


    Does the Phone Power Up?
  1. When you pick up your GE cordless phone and press a button, the phone should beep as a confirmation that a button has been pressed. If the telephone handset does not beep, or if it does not respond to any buttons, the battery may be in need of a recharge. Verify that the cordless phone base unit is plugged in to an electrical source, then place the handset into the charging cradle. If no lights illuminate on the phone, or if charging fails to correct the issue, clean the metal charging contacts on the cordless handset and place the phone back on the charger. If it still fails to respond or to charge, the unit may need to be serviced or replaced.
  2. Does the Battery Hold a Charge?
  3. If the cordless phone charges up and appears to be ready for use but dies after only short periods of use, the internal rechargeable batteries may need to be replaced. Replacement batteries are widely available at electronics and discount retail stores. Note your phone's exact model number, as this number will be necessary when purchasing a replacement battery.
  4. Listen for a Dial Tone
  5. If the GE cordless phone powers on, and beeps when you press keys, but no dial tone is heard, one of three problems is the likely culprit. The phone's batteries may have an insufficient charge to fully power the phone, a condition that can be corrected by simply placing the phone back in the charger. If the batteries are charged, but no dial tone is heard, it is also possible that another telephone in your home or office is "off hook" or in use; verify that all telephones, fax machines and modems are securely on the hook. If there is still no dial tone, your telephone service may have been disconnected or require service by your local telephone company.
  6. Listen for Static
  7. On some GE cordless phone models, particularly older models, static may be heard if the radio signal between the handset and base unit experiences interference. Common sources of interference include unshielded electronics, appliances, and radio transmitters, as well as high-tension power lines. If your phone offers an option to change channels, try several different channels to see if the static is eliminated. If static continues to exist, or if static can be heard on wired phones sharing the same line, your telephone line may require service.
  8. Verify Your Handset is Registered
  9. Some models of GE cordless phones may display a message on the display screen that the handset needs to be registered. If this message appears, move the handset close to the base unit and press the "Prog/Mute" button near the bottom of the handset. Next, press the "Pager" button on the base unit (your handset may instruct you to perform this step). Finally, press the "Prog/Mute" button on the handset one more time to complete the registration process. Your GE cordless phone should now work correctly.The GE Cordless Phone brand is designed to deliver the conveniences of cordless home service with quality sound and features. There are many models of the GE Cordless Phone. The most current models, including the DECT 6.0, have standard features such as call waiting, caller ID, visual ring indicator, phone number memory and digital answering systems .
  10. Before you use your GE Cordless Phone, ensure that you have all the parts. Your cordless phone package should include the phone base, a handset battery pack, a battery compartment cover, the cordless handset, a wall mount bracket, and a telephone line cord and AC power adaptor. Once you have confirmed that you have all of your parts, insert the handset battery pack into the handset and replace the battery compartment cover. Insert your telephone line cord and the AC power adapter into the phone base. The phone base identifies the telephone line as TEL LINE and the adapter as AC. Plug the phone base into the electrical socket. Place the cordless handset into the base. Allow the phone to charge for at least 16 hours before its first use. Failure to fully charge the battery before its first use will result in poor battery performance.
  11. Once you have fully charged your phone, you can proceed with setting up your phone's features. If your cordless phone includes an answering system, complete this setup process first. Turn on the answering system by pressing the on/off button. The message indicator light will display. The cordless phones are defaulted to English as the selected language. To change your language preference, press the "Skip" button for two seconds. The language will change to Spanish. Next, you will set up your voice time and day stamp. While the answering system is on, press the "Answer" button on your handset for two seconds. The phone will enter the answerer mode. Press the "8" key. This will take you to the time/day setup menu. Use the number keys to set the hour and minutes. Use the volume up and down arrows to set the AM/PM. Press "#" to save. The cordless handset will also require that you give it a name. Press the "Mute" button for two seconds until the handset reads "ENTER NAME." Enter the name of the handset by using the touchtone keypad. Press the "Mute" button to save. Enter the default area code by pressing "Mute" until the phone displays "AREA CODE." Enter your three-digit area code and press the "Mute" button to save.
  12. GE Cordless Phones are designed to be simple and convenient to use. To place or answer a call, press the TALK button. You can pre-dial a number by dialing the number before pressing the TALK button. When you are ready to make the call, press TALK and the phone will dial automatically. To answer a call that is waiting on the other line, press the FLASH button. If you experience call interference or bad reception while on a call, press the CHANNEL button until your line clears

Digtal answering machine not working.


I don't know yet if this is a resolution, but I'm going to try this tonight. Unplug all bases and remove all batteries from all handsets -- leave this overnight.

Here's the history of my problem. I rec'd this phone for my birthday. 3 weeks in, power went off in my building and answering machine part stopped working. I took it back to the store, and they gave me a new one. 4 weeks in, another power outage and I have the same problem. I called Panasonic, and they told me to unplug all bases and remove the batteries in the handsets for 'a few minutes' to reset the units. I waiting 10 minutes, and replaced all batteries and plugged in all the bases again. No luck, answering machine still did not work. I noticed, however that the phone did not reset as I still had all my phone numbers and caller id history.

I called my brother who is an electrician, and he advised me that the base has a 'capacitor(sp?)' and it will probably take a few hours for it to 'drain' so the phone will reset itself. His suggestion is to unplug all the bases, remove all the batteries and leave everything OVERNIGHT. By that time, the power store in the base should hopefully be wiped out and the phone should reset like new. I will try this tonight and let you know if this works.
