I've read only charge if batty low low..not daily How do I know if it's low. Should be coveed under warrantee.

Virtually all cell phones have a battery charge indicator at the top of the screen. That will tell you when its getting low. As far as when to charge, older ni-cd and ni-mh batteries had a habit of getting a "memory" if you recharged them too often without fully discharging them. The memory would cause the battery life to be very short. Today, most cell phone use lithium ion batteries. These are much better and can be charged daily without much issue. The problem with waiting for the battery to fully discharge before recharging is you can be caught away from home with a dead phone. This defeats the whole purpose of having the phone. As far as being covered under warranty.....what are you trying to get replaced? Batteries, for the most part, are not covered under any warranty unless their failure causes damage to the phone itself. And if that happens the battery you are using had better be the one the manufacturer recommends or all bets are off.

It seems the problem with display as well as to the charging unit. Display problem can be repaired only br replacing the display. And for your set, its not worth to get the display replaced. You can get the handset to your near service man to check whether the power charging unit works well.

Thank you

Battery doesn't charge

Shirley, check if you inserted the chip properly. Usually the bars are your wifi strength. Most likely its the chip.

Does not work, we tired a new battery, but no help.

    Technical Difficulties
  1. If the phone doesn't turn on, make sure battery is charged and fully plugged into phone. Remove battery from phone and use rag to brush away dirt that may interfere with connection. Reconnect and try again. If using cigarette-lighter adapter, make sure it's properly plugged in. Make sure charger is properly plugged into outlet and into battery.

  2. When the battery doesn't charge, plug lamp or other electrical device into outlet to verify that outlet works. Borrow friend's charger to see if charger or battery is problem. Replace charger or battery if necessary.

  3. In case the phone gets wet, remove the battery from the phone and allow both to dry thoroughly. If rust or corrosion develops, wipe it off with a stiff brush. If phone still does not work, replace it.

  4. Should the display not be working, try getting it to room temperature, extremely cold or warm conditions may affect display functions.

  5. If the keys don't work, look for a display of a symbol that looks like a lock. The keypad may be locked. The display often tells you how to unlock it. If not, check owner's manual.

Phone message reads

If you are not too far away-not "out of range" then try rehoming/pairing the handset with the base unit. You probably need the phones together to do this. Your manual will explain how-it will have been done in the original setup.

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.

Panasonic KX-TG6051M 5.8 GHz -Caller ID view problem

I have a panasonic KX-TG6051CM 5.8 phone with 3 handsets. After less than a year 2 of the 3 handsets developed the same problem, almost in the same time ( a couples of hours apart). The battery indicator shows low battery and is charging continuously even though the battery is fully charged ( when i swap the battery with my 3rd handset, the battery indicator shows fully charged and works fine ). The handsets were never dropped, never used in a moisture ladden environment ( like bathroom ) and when not in use they were kept in the charger. Any help or suggestions will be much appreciated.

My display has gone blank...

I'd like to tell you folks what the solution to the problem was, but I can't because you have not signed up for the Premium Assistance Plan yet. So if you really want to help people, don't try to get them to pay for an answer to a problem, and then try to convince them to post back a solution to a problem for free. You guys are about as transparent as clear air. I'll seek an answer elsewhere.
