Question about British Telecom Freestyle 2200 Trio Cordless Phone

Signal indicator flashes constantly

One day woke up to find phone was just not picking up the signal. Base unit plugged in and power coming through to power the red light on base, but when you press the call button on the handset it beeps, as if to say there's no signal. No dial tone or anything. Fully recharged, seems to still charge ok. Right next to base unit, so not out of range. Tried resetting it as tech help suggested, by taking out batteries, cables etc and waiting 30mins. Any ideas?

    Not exactly the same problem. My Daughter dropped the base unit into the cat water bowl. Dried it out charges phone, but get no tone or anything. Flashing signall indicator. I think a new base unit is in order, but where to get one!! Not expensive one either, damn thing only cost £20.00 for twin set!! Any help to fix this(or my daughter, lol!!) Would be gratefully received.

The following worked when I had what appears to be the same problem. Solution :- Remove batteries, remove power connection, wait 30 minutes, re-connect power and replace batteries then press button on base until it beeps. Both handsets started continuous beeping which eventually stopped and everything was returned to normal. Admittdly this sounds almost identical to the process used by 'versailles' above, but at least it confirms that the technical info given by the BT Helpline does work

Replaced batteries, outsid temp. does not display

Base Station Battery Installation
·Remove the printed vinyl label from the LCD screen of the base station
·Position the remote sensor near the base station
·Open the battery compartment at the back of the base station and insert (2) AA batteries according to the polarity markings. Replace the battery compartment cover.
·Within a short time the RF signal icon (located to the left of the outdoor temperature channel indicator) will start flashing. This indicates that the base station is ready to pick up the RF outdoor temperature signal from the remote sensor. It will continue to flash for 3 minutes or until the signal from the remote sensor is detected.

Register the Remote Sensor
·Open the battery compartment at the back of the remote sensor and slide the channel selector switch to your desired channel. For the first remote you may select any channel, for additional remotes select any unused channel
·Insert (2) AAA batteries according to the polarity markings. Be sure to install the batteries in the remote within the time that the RF signal icon is flashing on the base station.

Connecting to base

read the user manual as the handsets have to be registered by the base unit to be connected
the main base is the operational unit
the other bases are just cradles to hold the phone while it is being charged

I have a Uniden cordless phone #D2CT 6.0--I love the phone but the party on the other end of the line can barely hear me -how can I fix this or this a bad phone???

At 20 ft line of sight, you should have perfect reception with most any cordless phone.

The fuzzy signal can indicate:
A weak signal between base and handset.
20 ft line of sight should have a good strong signal.
Your handset may be defective.
Or, your handset battery may be weak.
Your base unit may be defective.

You may be experiencing RFI Interference.
Is the base unit next to any other electronic devices?
If it is next to a wireless router or some other wireless device, it may be overloaded by the nearby signal (even if on a different frequency)

I've got a 5 year old Panasonic 5.8 Ghz cordless phone connected to my VoIP box. I just tested it from about 25 ft away from the base unit in another room with a wall in between and my reception is perfect.

I did the same test with my Panasonic DECT 6.0 phones (1.9 GHz). The first handset is slightly fuzzy, but otherwise good signal. The 2nd handset was perfectly quiet with good strong signal. So, there is a difference between two identical handsets connected to the same base unit. This indicates to me that one handset is better tuned than the other. Nothing I can do about that but get a new 2nd extension cordless handset. Sometimes, it's just luck of the draw

My cordless phone is not functioning properly.I get consistent disturbance in the background while talking on cordless.Please help me remove this noise.

This can be due to poor meshing of the base and handset , a poor signal strength that tends to pick up stray EMI signals. Make sure that the antennae of the Base phone is tight and up . Check the voltage to the base phone - if adapter is faulty.
Also check the handset for any loose fittings on the antennae.
If the problem does not resolve then you need technical help to check if the operating frequency or the signal processing is weak and faulty on the base unit. Best you can remove base unit and look for any loose links in RF section or shielding faults in this section that picks up stray signals.

I got a new Sangean clock radio R22. Te atomic clock doesn't pick up the time and I can't get it to set manually either. It reads ony L 0 on the right side. I have the part that receives set in a window....

I just had the same problem which you find posted here on The problem solved itself overnight for me. I left the RCR-22 unit plugged in and searching for the signal when I woke up the next morning the time was set and the Atomic signal indicator was solid instead of flashing. It has kept perfect time since then. My only issue is that setting the alarm clock-radio is complicated.

My phone is fairly new and almost immediately after I pick up the phone it starts beeping for low battery. Also it searches for a signal all of the time and cuts off conversations because it's searching...

It is searching for a signal because its signal is so weak it cannot find the base. If it cannot communicate with the base, there is no conversation.

New or not ... your battery is either faulty, prematurely dead or not charging. I am leaning toward not charging ... do you have it plugged into a hot outlet (not switch controlled)? Can you measure the power coming OUT of the transformer? Is there a charging light on the base unit that would indicate a charging condition?

Trying to use multiple base units

It is not possible to set up 2 base units to work with same handset as the base unit and the handset are tagged by their operating frequency, which also works as the privacy filter for the user, so that your neighbors cannot pick up your line and use on your expense. For your requirement you need a DECT system that can support multiple base stations.

My GE instajack is not working. It had a greeen signal, now it has a red signal.

Most likely, the extension unit cannot communicate with the
indicator light is solid base unit for one of the following reasons:
red • Base unit has yet to be installed. Install base unit. (Refer to
the Set Up section.)
• Extension is too far from the base unit. Relocate either the
base or extension unit to another electrical outlet. If
indicator light on extension
unit remains solid red, reprogram the link code on extension

Follow these steps:
• Press and hold the button on the right side of the base
unit until the indicator light changes to solid red.
(Approximately five seconds.)
• Release the button, then the indicator light will blink orange.
This creates a new link code and places the base unit into
program mode.
• Follow steps (2) and (3) in the Additional Extension Units
section for all extension units.
• Press and release the button on the base unit to take it out of
program mode. The indicator light will change from flashing
orange to solid green.

Diverse 2010 phones stopped working

I have solved this problem by un-plugging the base phone for the night, and then plugging in again this morning, when it started working again, but I don't understand why! anyway, problem solved.

In Use LED flashing constantly

Your phone may have lost registration to the base. 1) Try disconnecting the power to the base and then re-connecting the power with the cordless phone in the base. Give it a few seconds, then see if it works. 2) Try removing the battery, wait 10 seconds, re-install the battery and set the phone in the charger.
