SOURCE: I have a phillips CD240 cordless phone, on the

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.

A higher capacity battery should work even better because a fully charged 900 mAh battery allows the phone to operate 50% longer than a 600 mAh battery between charges. I have had good results with Rayovac Recharge Plus 900 mAh in my Philips SE450. This phone will latch and not operate upon ringing if it doesn't like its batteries (probably high internal resistance), even though the batteries test good on a battery tester.

Channel Searching message, but phone is right next to unit


If your phone worked fine and this problem just started happening and seems to be getting worse, I would change the battery, even if the charge light indicates that the battery is charging and you "think" the battery is charged.

Most of these weird problems that start occurring in a phone that always worked fine are caused by the battery goinf dead. You can buy a replacement battery on ebay for like $6-$7 with shipping for most models of cordless phones. I sort of rehab cordless phones that I get at yard sales and at goodwills and sell them on ebay. Out of 50 or 60 so far, I have never found a broken one. I have found, however, plenty of phones that initially display all sorts of weird symptoms which are ALWAYS -- and i mean always -- fixed by a new battery. Good luck.

Low battery problem


Hello,

Although your batteries are exhibiting a charge memory effect a little early, it doesn't surprise me too much after the phones are in use for two years.

You need to replace the batteries in your cordless phones. These you can find at any Radio Shack. Once yo have installed the new batteries you want to let both batteries go dead from use, keep them off the charger stand for this break in period. If you can do this your phones batteries will last longer.

For more information on rechargeable battery memory effect read this article.

Regards and thanks for using Fixya.
