    Same for me, bought Oct 2008, broken Jan 2009. Just says searching and brought down another phone on another line in the house so neither got a dial tone. I noticed the distributor stopped carrying this model.

PHILIPS CORDLESS CD245 TRIO AND other 2 handsets power requirements (Adapters lost)


It should say on the bottom of the base unit. I would expect 5-6 volt 500ma. That would be the size that would charge those batteries.

How do I rescue my BT Freestyle 750 from being stuck "Searching" and remedies that are "Not Possible"?


Have you tried removing the batteries and letting the internal power decay for an hour or so - in other words try to get them to forget what they were. Then replace batteries and try again. I guess you've consulted the user manual, is there a reset button hole anywhere on the base unit? The sort you stick a pin into.

HI! I have a Philips CD245. It seams to be that the base unit is dead or about to die!!...I conect the power and the light goes on very weak for abou 1 or 2 seconds. What component is not working fine? I...


Hi marybls ,

I am afraid this is a sign that the internal board of the main base unit is either corrupted or rusted. i would highly suggest for you to take it to an electronic shop to get it repaired as no further solutions can be given on line.

i hope this helps.

I have a phillips CD240 cordless phone, on the screen is flashing SEARCHING and wont make or receive calls.


Hi, I solved this issue this morning. "Searching" means the handset cannot find the signal from its base, and if you check your base, it's more likely than not, dead. In my case, I checked this by pressing any button on the base, i.e. answer phone etc., there was no response (although the handset seems to recharge power fine for some reason).

Therefore, I went and bought a new cheap GAP compatible (binatone 1800 Single at Comet - 14.99). I then set up the base, put it in the registration mode as per the binatone instruction. Then on the Phillips CD245 handset and gone through the above registration procedure... and Voila! It worked.

Now I have a brand new base that came with 1 new handset of its own, and 3 additional CD245 handsets which are all registered with this base. So far, the sound quality is good (no different from the previous genuine set) and they retained all the telephone numbers registered with the handset.

I don't have any high regards to binatone specifically as a brand because our last corded phone system was rubbish and died shortly after 12 months guarantee but to me it looks as if GAP compatible cordless phones have certain life-span however cheap or expensive they are (while handset seem to last much longer). Threrefore, there is more incentive to buy a cheap base new (of any make that are GAP Compatible) then connect your old handset to this base and live on 12 months manufacturer's guarantee and hopefully more. On the web, I saw some comments that are saying GAP Compatible phones and base sometimes do not successfully register each other (despite even being of the same make or brand). Obviously the users make such attempt at her/his own risk but I can confirm that the above combination worked for me.

Just for info, to do the registration successfully, the both base and handset must be in "Registering" mode. First, to get the base in the registration mode, you have to press <page> (a paging function for handset in case you cannot find where they are - usually button that says <page>or speaker with sound symbol on the base) more than 5 seconds, then the base is in the "Register Mode"(though you will hear no beep). You can then go through the procedure you describe on the handset and the handset should beep with assigned number no more than 10 seconds after it flashed "Waiting".

I hope this is helpful.

Best,
Ken

The above, however, works only if the Base is still functioning.

Philips cd245 duo wont register and wont reset


Hi, I sort of solved this issue. What you cannot confuse here is that when you are doing "Registering" on your existing handset, the base has to be in the registration mode too. To get the base in the registration mode, you have to press <page> (or speaker with sound symbol on the base) more than 5 seconds, then the base is in the "Register Mode". You can then go through the procedure you describe and the handset will beep with Registration number on the screen. This is however a fix only if the Base is still functioning. In my case, sadly, the base was more likely dead (if I press any button on the base, i.e. answer phone etc., there is no response). Hence I went and bought a new cheap GAP compatible BINATONE 1800 Single at Comet (14.99). I then set up the base, put it in the registration mode. Then on the Phillips CD245 handset and gone through the above registration procedure... and Voila! It worked. Now I have a new base that came with 1 handset, then 3 of my CD245 handset are all registered with it. So far, the sound quality is good and I also managed to have kept all the telephone numbers registered with the handset. The BINATONE base came with 12 months manufacturer's guarantee so I am sorted with the base problem for at least a year, which is nice. I hope this is helpful. Best, Ken

Base station and units all say 'searching'


You may need to register your handset to the base.
Normally ,there is a advanced setting ,register handset. At the same time, press and hold "page" key on your base 4 to 5 second , there is be a registation success tone from handset. You can register all of your handset ,one by one. Some model need to input register code, normally ,it is 1234 , or 0000.

I guess you need to register it with the base unit. I have the same unit and havn't faced such an issue. But I am sure that this will sort your problem. It will be in setting and network/advanced settings. Go to register cordless and register it with the base. You will then see a small coloured icon on the screen, like a network tower, so you know that you are paired with the base unit.

Hope this helps.

Cheers
