1. Problem for this phone has been narrowed down to the receiver. There is much static when using the receiver vs none when using the speaker. There is no static in other phones in the house. Tried a new cord in the receiver, but static still remains.
2. Phone works just fine with NO batteries at all. What's the purpose of the batteries?
I have the same problem with my GE 29460 GE-2 phone. I took apart the handset and the source of the humming and static is a bad (cheap) microphone. I have swapped in a spare handset from another phone which works for the time being... it doesn't fit the phone cradle very well. When I find a junked phone (any wired phone would probably work) with a good microphone I may try soldering in the mike into the old handset... its only a 2 wire solder job. I'm PO'd at GE for making junk so I don't want to buy the parts for this, if I could find them.

I moved the base of the Cordless phone to another electrical outlet and the static stopped immediately. I then by stubborness put it back in the same outlet that had static and it was corrected. GE should put that in their manual. thanks for the support--jamisonone
When I have a static problem with a phone or radio it usually happens when I have them plugged into a extension cord. Or they are too close to one another. You may try an ext.cord. just having the phone plugged in or find out why you have so many magnetic fields in your house and if moving the phone around to different outlets help.If not I suggest you call Radio Shack. You can not beat their customer service.
Static on Partner systems is not too uncommon and more likely as the system ages. These systems use relays (electric switches) to connect to outside lines and extensions. The static is usually from a faulty relay, but sadly these are not really repairable by end users. A power outage is sometimes associated with spikes - short high voltage conditions that occur as the power comes back on. Any vulnerable component may fail at that time. The solution is to replace the bad circuit pack. These are available used - just use your search engine. Prevention can be as easy as installing a good surge and spike protector power strip between the system and the outlet.
