Question about Philips Phones

1 Answer

The telephones we just bought are not holding a charge, although they have been in their base unit for over 48 hours. Could it be possible the supplied batteries are no good? Judy

Yes it is quit possible. Check to see the date of manufacture. This will give you some indication as to how long the units have sat. Also depends on the amount of time the units spend off there chargers and talk time. Consult your owners manual to see how long to reasonably expect the batteries to last but as a rule the phones should be replaced in their chargers after every use. Also if the phones are newly purchased you may contemplate getting them replaced or in the very least the batteries. If you opt for the replacement closely follow the manufacturers directions for initial charge and usage. I do hope this helped you out.

How do i get volume on my binatone 3325 handset


Press C/8 to unmute the microphone.

complete installations
Plug the power adapter
& line cord
into the base station.
Plug the power adapter into a 230Vac, 50Hz
mains socket, the other end of the line cord
into your telephone line socket.
Warning: Always use the line cord provided in the box.
Other line cords may not be compatible and may not work.
Warning: Only use the power adapter supplied.
Others will result in non-compliance with the safety
specification EN60950, and will invalidate any approval
given with this apparatus.
Warning: The Base unit needs mains power for
normal operation, not just for charging the handset batteries.
Installing and charging the batteries
Slide open the battery compartment cover.
Place the 2 batteries with the correct polarity,
as shown.
Slide the battery compartment cover back.
Put the handset on the base and charge for
15 hours before first time use. The handset
beeps when charging starts.
Warning: Only use the AAA size NiMH rechargeable
batteries.
If you have a Broadband Line
If you connect your telephone to a line with a broadband connection, you will need to
insert a micro-filter between the telephone and the telephone line, otherwise you may
get interference between the telephone and the broadband, which could cause
problems.
In a home with broadband, every telephone must have a micro-filter connected, not just the one at the telephone point that your modem is connected to.
If you need more broadband micro-filters, contact your broadband provider.

Connection and Conditions for use:
You can connect your phone to a direct exchange line (DEL) on a local
exchange with its own phone number; to an extension socket
connected to a DEL; or to an extension on an approved compatible
PBX. Do not connect as an extension to a payphone.
The ringer equivalence number (REN) of all equipment (phones, fax
machines, modems, etc.) connected to an exchange line must not add
up to more than 4, otherwise one or more of them may not ring and/or
answer calls correctly. This phone has a REN of 1, and most other
telephones have a REN of 1 unless marked otherwise.
Handset - Base Connection
1) When purchased, all handsets are already registered to the base unit
and should link to it when they are all powered up.
2) To use your cordless handset and base unit together, you must be
able to establish a radio link between them. The signal between the
handset and the base is in accordance with the normal standards for
a DECT phone: Maximum range up to 300 metres outdoors or 50
metres indoors. Be aware that:
> Any large metal object, such as a refrigerator, mirror or filing cabinet,
between the handset and the base unit may block the radio signal.
> Other solid structures, like walls, may reduce the signal strength.
> Other electrical equipment may cause interference and/or affect the range.
3) Do not place close to another telephone, a TV or audio equipment - it
may cause interference.
4) Out of Range warning. If you hear a warning tone during a call,
and/or the sound in the earpiece becomes faint or distorted, you may be
going out of range of the base unit, so move nearer to the base unit
within 20 seconds, otherwise the call may be cut off.

Phone reads searching after being disconected and reconected


If this telephone is part of a multiphone set there is one base that is connected to a phone line (or if Magic Jack the internet cord). The other phone charging seats work by radio signal from the base unit. Place the phone on the base unit and let it reconnect for a few minutes. If you bought this expansion set without already owning a base unit, you will need to get the base unit or take this expansion set back for a unit that will opperate by itself.

Don't I have to connect the phone to a telephone line? I don't see where i can place a phone wire in the phone. Also, I have the handset in the base but it doesn't say that it is registering. It keeps...


Often the line cord connection is on the back of the base unit or underneath, usually near where the AC cord plugs into the base unit that powers it. The handset needs to charge before it will be ready to use, sometimes for 12 hours. If after charging, it still is not registered automatically then try manually registering it to the base unit per the directions in the manual.

Phone says OUT OF RANGE while on the base and won't work.


The handset has lost the link with the base. This link codes the handset to the base with a unique security code so others with the same phone cannot use your phone line.

If you changed the battery, try disconnecting the base telephone line and ac adapter for a while (1/2 hour or so if possible).

Remove the battery from the handset as well.

After 1/2 hour, install the battery in the handset, connect the telephone line and ac adapter to the base. Place the handset in the charging base and the link should be established. If not, the phone is defective.

"searching" message even when handset on the base


Found the following in AT&Ts FAQs for your phone, I'll leave only what might be relevant: # Charge the handset for 12 hours. After the first charge, the battery will quick charge in only 8 hours. Re-cradle the handset nightly for recharging. The battery will not overcharge. # Connect telephone line from base to unit to modular telephone jack. If cord is already plugged in, unplug and reconnect at both ends. Also, you may want to try another cord from a working telephone. See the owner's manual under "Connecting to Phone Line." (you can get the manual here on the product page in case you lost it) # Try a working phone at the jack. If another phone has the same problem in that jack, the phone jack is defective. Good luck, hope you work it out
