Question about GE 26928GE1 Cordless Phone

1 Answer

Battery holds a charge for a short time only

Replaced battery about 2 weeks ago. Charge does not seem to hold for long. Measured base output voltage to phone at approx 10.4 vDC. Is this correct or in range? Measured battery voltage after attempted recharge is approx 2.3 vDC. Would this be symptomatic of inadequate charge time - 12 hours?

Uniden battery will not charge

If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and graduallythe charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The batteryshows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops offto zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptablecharge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Your battery needs to be replaced. The software inside the phone indicates the battery charge level by the voltage of the battery. Your battery really can't hold a charge anymore, which is why the phone shuts off.
Replace your battery - that will fix your problem!

My boyfriend's family phones are not hold a charge. They were told to give it time. It's been 2 weeks! Can you help them?

Batteries do eventually wear out and need to be replaced.
If these are older cordless phones, try taking the handset to a WalMart or Best Buy and ask about replacement cordless batteries.

Both handsets of the new 2801 we bought will not maintain charge

This condition is usually caused by a battery that has been charged too much or incorrectly. It has developed a memory and now can only hold a very small charge. I believe it is time for new batteries!

Battery will not hold charge

Sound like he has a charging system problem . I would check stator output. If that checks good then it's the regulator.
